Quick Kick – The Rules
Every now and then I will present, mixed in with the regular reviews, a series of shorter reviews, usually audio books that I’ve collected, listened to, but didn’t have the opportunity to write down the usual elements for a more detailed review. Unless none is available, the plot summary will be from the Amazon listing. These are Quick Kicks. Any assigned or accepted reviews from author requests will be the normal four point analysis.
By Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie
Narrated by alternating members of an unreliable group of teens, this riveting thriller will have readers on the edge of their seats. No one is safe, and everyone is a suspect.
Callabrese High’s exclusive parties are famous for booze, sex, and most especially, their scavenger hunts. But when the latest invitees RSVP yes, they have no idea what they’re in for. Because this time the high school elite aren’t the ones doing the hunting. They’re the ones being hunted.
It’s a serial killer book with a bit of gore but not much. Sometimes I found it difficult to distinguish between the characters as the narrator didn’t use different voices for the characters. With a lot of characters to deal with, the authors don’t get into them too much, and the killing of them had to be done every so often.
I enjoyed the game and wished more of the game wold have been played. Some may argue that it did get played out, but it felt almost secondary. A vast array of characters who were typical high school snobbish elite.
