Ei  4: Simon & Marshall' (Eerie Indiana) von John Peel
This second "Eerie" novel by John Peel (the famous UK DJ??? OK, probably not) is a vast improvement on "Burea of Lost" (Eerie #2). The story is witty, fast paced, entertaining and, for once, not modelled after an episode from the TV show.
One complaint: For a series that I've noted before as being incredibly faithful to its source material, I was disappointed to see that Peel got one detail wrong here.

I know, I know...no big deal but this seemed like a pretty sloppy error to me.

Sometime in early 1993, when I was 14 years old, a friend of my parents had gave me a hardback copy of "A Prayer For Owen Meany" telling me, simply, "I think you'll like this." I shrugged, thanked her and it sat on the coffee table for a few months. That June, when we took a long road trip to Ottawa one weekend, I brought the book along with me simply to have something to distract me while spending about 10 hours in a van that weekend. It didn't take long until I was fully engrossed in the book. I spent much of the 5 hours en route to Ottawa reading, another couple hours that night in the hotel room and there were very few moments during our entire stay in… Mehr dazu
