    1 thought on “The Dead Game”

    1. Decent mystery with a good premise. However, after a certain character death, the story grinds to a complete halt and doesn't recover until the climax, which is confusingly written! How disappointing, because the first half was tense and intriguing. (view spoiler)[Kudos to Bates, however, for doing an unreliable narrator decades before Gone Girl resulted in every bloody thriller having one). (hide spoiler)]

    2. 5 out of 5 Point Horror Book Stars!

    3. Reminds me of: Heathers, but not as funny. Maybe Mean Girls but without the brilliant one liners. "It was probably just a practical joke" moment: Nope, don't think this happened. "You probably just imagined it" moment: Nope, don't think this actually happened either. I like it when a point horror breaks this trope. Innocent victims?: (view spoiler)[ I don't think being a shoplifter and a fake artiste deserves death, manslaughter or murder, no. How blindingly obvious?: I was genuinely just enjoyi [...]

    4. Do not turn out the lights. The author has crafted herself a town that is bipolar in its nature. By day it pretends to be a bright seaside destination where youth collects to begin their adult lives; make friends, start businesses and partying. By night, the town closes ranks to all newbies and becomes a creepy destination for elites to ply their generational customs that include preying on the innocent Linda and her friends will experience horror, shock and disbelief as they attempt to get to t [...]

    5. I thought "The Dead Game" was a really good book. It showed how teenagers think and how extreme they are willing to go. This book showed how teens Linnie, Ming and Jackson try to overcome all the cheats, liars, and spoiled acquaintances in their high school. Linnie was tired of the cheats getting all of the praise and cheating through it while she and her friends actually worked hard and didn't get and praise. She made a game to expose all of them and it turns out that the game went far worse th [...]

    6. I used to absolutely LOVE the Point Horror books! I would go through each of them in one sitting, for the most part. They definitely tweaked my interested in the horror genre.

    7. I'm trying to work out why I don't read this book more often - I always think of it as one that I don't like much - and I can only conclude that I'm put off by the dark, depressing cover, because it's really quite a good book. In a departure from the usual sharp delineation between victims and perps that you usually find in these books, The Dead Game is set around a trio of friends who decide that they want revenge against a bunch of schoolmates who they feel cheated them out of something that w [...]

    8. I really liked this book. When I read it as a teen, I raced through it because I wanted to find out what would happen next.One thing that makes the book interesting is that the main characters are, well, the bad ones in this scenario. They get so upset over other people's personal decisions. There was one athlete who wanted to quit the team, which the main characters thought was a disaster because he was one of the best players and they needed him to win. Apparently, they consider it cheating fo [...]

    9. Dead Game was about 3 kids that decide to make a few of their classmates squirm by revealing the bad things they do. Unbeknownst to jackson and Ming Linnie had gone off the deep end and was playing for blood! Awesome. It took me less than a day to read. I am keeping it for the Coale man to enjoy as well. A+++++++!

    10. I thought this was one of the Point Horror books I'd somehow missed as a kid, but a few chapters in I knew who the perpetrator would be, so I must have read this at some stage back in the 90's. I devoured every Point Horror book I could get my hands on back then. A bitesize piece of high school horror.

    11. Nice quick read that only took me three hours. As far as young adult books go, it's not the best, but it's still a decent read. I don't know what I would have made of the twist had I read this back when I got it aged 14, all I know was that it ended in a way I wasn't expecting and that's good enough for me.

    12. It would have been nice if the book had been twice as long. There is one particular idea that I would have liked if more developed and less cliché. It's the classic 150 pages that you enjoy when you're like 12 years old. Don't expect too much from it.

    13. Now this book is sooo exciting!!!!!!! It is filled with drama and back stabing. It will shock you at every chapter. Amd the end of your book will blow your mind. Its really fun to read it will get you hooked!;-p

    14. really liked this one, not my absolute fav, but i was convinced the killer was Linnie's sister, even when Ming said it was Linnie's voice she heard. Maybe i was having a stupid moment, but i give extra for not getting the killer before its revealed.

    15. I read it in about 2 hours. Nice and short. Confused about the end of chapter 36 though. You should probably give it a read, as I think it is worth it.

    16. Wow! Towards the end I thought I had it, then because I thought I had it I was in denial! Bloody hell! But still a good story!
