Suspicious Minds Reviews
I like the show (S1 a lot, S2 somewhat) and so I was excited to read this. But it had a lot of the same problems as Season 2 did (poorly thought out storylines, a lack of threat from the human villains). Terry was... well, kind of bland. Andrew was as well. He seemed sweet, but he didn't really do a whole lot. The other test subjects, save for Ken, were kind of dull overall. Their friendship was rushed, and the premise was hard to believe. That the government let them go home at the end of every ...more
Love the show but this book is slow and uninteresting.
I AM SHOOKT ABOUT THIS.
"What a beautiful little piece of evil."
Suspicious Minds is a prequel to the Stranger Things show, and the story focuses on Eleven's mom, Terry Ives. It's set in the late '60s / early '70s in Indiana, and whether this is a Stranger Things book or not, I found it to be an easy story to get invested in. Terry and her friends are likeable characters, and the story is occurring amidst the Vietnam War and everything else that was going on - yet with a Stranger Things spin that makes it even more fun. ...more
If you’re a massive Stranger Things stan like me and you need to kill time until we get a season 3 trailer then you need to read this book. Even though it has creepy AF Brenner and there’s zero sight of the Party (because they haven’t even been born) or hottie Hopper (because he’s fighting over in Vietnam) never fear! Terry’s backstory is both interesting and depressing.
You’ll learn all about who El’s dad is, how Brenner got a hold of Eleven in the first place and how Terry got into Hawkins Lab. ...more
Not nearly as good as the tv series, but still a solid prequel following 11's mother as she undergoes experiments at the lab and up to the point where she gives birth to 11. I'm definitely interested in continuing this prequel series.
My biggest problem with Stranger Things is that there's too much pre-teen drama and not enough spooky stuff/weird government conspiracy stuff. I find myself far more interested in what's going on in Hawkins Lab than I am in what Dustin, Mike, Will, and Luke are up to. So, getting through the show is always a bit of an ordeal for me as I just want the weird, spooky stuff. So, when Suspicious Minds was announced as the first official Stranger Things tie-in novel, I was pretty excited. It sounded l ...more
Ja tu izlauzies no laboratorijas, kurā ar cilvēkiem veic eksperimentus un tev draud briesmas, ko tu darītu tālāk?
Tieši tā, brauktu mājās, no kurienes tevi pirms pāris stundām nolaupīja un piespieda doties uz laboratoriju in the first place, un paziņotu "this has been an eventful night, I need to rest".
...stranger things have happened.
