    1. WOW! WOW! WOW! When I was browsing through the shelves at Barnes & Noble and saw that Christopher Pike had written an adult novel, I was thrilled! I remember reading his books as a kid, and absolutely loving them. The very first chapter catches your attention and pulls you in so quickly that before you know it, you're quite literally trapped in this story. There are more twists and turns in this story that you can count, so it really keeps you guessing. And just when you think you've got it [...]


    2. This book is amazing! By far my favorite book ever! On the cover it says, "literary crack cocaine" & boy is that right! It was fantastic! I found the character very relatable and just awesome because they were VERY unique, but still real and believable. The plot was so complex and engaging-which kept me captivated with every page. The ending was also satisfying in that i thought that every character got what he/she deserved(especially Amy). I also admired the emotions displayed by the charac [...]


    3. Falling is a curious book. Mr. Pike chooses to narrate an awful lot of events through a sub-400 page novel, including plenty of set-up and backstory that other authors may have chosen to reveal later in the book through flashbacks or dialogue.The story revolves around two central characters: Matt Connor, a bright, passionate young man who has become unhinged by his unhealthy obsession with a poisonous girl named Amy, and Kelly Feinman, a brash FBI agent struggling to balance her exciting work wi [...]


    4. Wow it is really hard for me to rate a murder/thriller novel as a five star because it is so tricky to thoroughly entertain and scare me at the same time I admit however this book did both wonderfully, I was literally addicted to this book and read every spare moment I could with a mixture of awe, disgust, respect and serious intrigue.e book cover calls it "literary crack" and that is exactly what it was from the first pageThe book has such realistic and brilliant characters it is admirable to r [...]


    5. This book drove me absolutely crazy. I hated the characters, and couldn't believe anyone's motivation. I found horrible mistakes that lead me to believe the writing and editing were lazya thesis for a PhD? NO!! A 'good' thesis will earn a PhD faster? NO!! A working mother would go home and fix a roast turkey for dinner as a treat after work??? NO!! Blood from a vein throbs with the heartbeat? NO!! Even I know that! And yet, some interesting writingI found lots of quotes I liked. So, I know Pike [...]


    6. EXCELLENT book! I love these sort of horror thrillers. This book grabbed me from the first page and didn't let go until the very end. I am upset that there are no more pages to read. Pike has done some great character development. I love that Kelly is the type of person who uses her FBI status as a way of finding adventures. I love how she sympathizes with the "bad guys" and uses them to gain knowledge about herself and life in general.I think one of Pike's goals in writing this book was to have [...]


    7. This being my long over due reintroduction to Christopher Pike, I was at first a bit disappointed. It had been so long since I'd read any of his work that I was bored by the story. But then I remembered that Pike is the kind of storyteller that *eases* you into a plot. Sure, he'll thrust you into the action - but that's wholly separate. Once I was introduced to the web of the plot it was intriguing and gripping. The gradual reveal of the twists and turns were sometimes sudden and other times not [...]


    8. I REALLY enjoyed this book. It goes back and forth between a man's point of view and a women's. This makes it easier for reader to connect. At the beginning of the story, when I started to first read it, I was confused about why the author had been going from a different point of view every chapter. Then as I started to get more into the story, I love how the author merges both of two main character's stories together and get them to actually meet. I would recommend this book to both males and f [...]


    9. This made me think a lot. Lots of dot connecting went down in my head as I was reading this book. I loved the psychology of the characters. I can't reveal the name of the serial killer otherwise that'd ruin the book but he's one of my favorite characters in this book. Also the way Matt thinks and the things he manages to plot and pull off in this book are really interesting. I liked this book, I read it in about two sittings, this book was a drug.


    10. I have to say. This one is amazing. I loved it. When I first opened the book and started reading, I thought it was going to be just ok. When I was through, I couldn't believe how much I loved it! I've never been much of a "thriller" reader but now I'm hooked!


    11. This book is very good. Pike outdid himself with a very complex adult novel.It is unusual for me, to like a Pike that is devoid of the supernatural but I liked it. The story is about cheating and lies. It is about love triangles with the nice guy and bad boy. It is about paying for one's sin of cheating and adultery. It is about choices and most of all it is about pain.What i like about this story is the number of stories-both real and fictional. There are about five stories of cheating and the [...]


    12. You're probably thinking "Christopher Pike? Isn't that the guy who was second only to RL Stine in cheesy tween horror books of the nineties?" Why, yes, he was. However, Christopher Pike has been writing the occasional book for adults for quite some time. This book is a thriller but not in the Stephen King sense. There are two central characters. Matt is a man who fakes his own death as part an elaborate plan to get back at his ex-girlfriend. The other character is an FBI agent who (and this will [...]


    13. I just finished this book last night.Honestly, sometimes Christopher Pike's characters feel all too real for me, that as a writer myself, I get so jealous in the fact that he makes this come across as easy. I know that it isn't.This book is a great read.I was in love with the character Matt, wishing I was as brave as Kelly, hating Amy because she was the most real character I could think of, and intrigued by the Acid Man.Now, my only regret is I felt like I was left not knowing enough about the [...]


    14. I very much enjoyed this book. A well written thriller mystery by one of my favorite authors.That said, this was not my favorite Pike offering. I grew up with Christopher Pike, devouring young adult novels with themes so mature I wouldn't truly comprehend what I had read until years later. His best works feature a compelling blend of mystery, the supernatural and spirituality. Unfortunately for me, while this work was heavy on mystery, the other two didn't play a large role in the piece. What ma [...]


    15. Not knowing anything about this before listening to it, I must say this is definitely an entertaining audio! Not only was the plot suspenseful, the twists & turns had me questioning myself more than once on how things would turn out. It has literary references, which I enjoy, as well.Sort of Spoiler Alert (Not of the story):I'm glad I didn't know about the history of the author and the narrator. I probably would have been biased had I known Christopher Pike is a well known young adult author [...]


    16. I bought this book for three reasons: 1. Christopher Pike is the author 2. It was 3$ and 3. I had a long flight ahead of me. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I have read some of Pikes fantasy/paranormal books and thought this book might fall in the same genre. It doesnt, but that does not take away from the overall plot/story. It is about a guy whose girlfriend betrays him, and a FBI agent whose own life is falling apart as a result of her attachment to her job and cases. I d [...]


    17. Blast from the past, I couldn't believe when I saw this on the shelf. Of course I bought it and consumed it within hours. I liked it - brought back memories of his books I read when I was younger. I swear there was similar things from his other books if I remember correctly (ie scuba diving) I may have to sneak into the young adult section and re-read his books. His style hasn't changed - which is great. Good, fast entertaining read. The master of twists and turns - as Kelly's fascination with t [...]


    18. O.M.G. !!!!This book is Silence of the Lambs meets Criminal Minds. The story weaves in and out and you really have no idea what happens next. Kelly (kind of like A.J. in Criminal Minds) is a billiant PHD in mythology who is hired by the FBI to help profile suspects at Quantico. She decides to get to know the field better so she trains as an FBI agent. Kelly hunts down the dreaded ACID MAN on her own as a renegade FBI agent and thinks she has solved the case not really though he haunts her till [...]


    19. Ok, I get Amy cheated on Matt. But that makes her evil? Sooooooo evil. Sooooooo manipulative. Clearly deserves whatever pain comes her way. Ummm, didn't we condemn Acidman for this? I am so done with this over usage of this female character type. Le sigh.




    20. I think I have finally reached the point where I cannot continue to review Christopher pike books based on the memory of how his books made me feel when I was a teenager. The truth is this book wasn't very good at all! It was a slightly( hardly at all) more mature version on master of murder. I was confused by what the main character is supposed to be It felt like pike was trying to create a superhero. The storyline was weak, the connections in the story were tenuous and there was no attempt mad [...]


    21. Oh man.what an awesome book. Really got into this one unlike I did with other Christopher Pike books. It kept me on the edge of my seat, the characters were wonderful and the suspense of it was outstanding.


    22. Entertaining but kinda slowI liked the book but I failed to really care about the characters and what happened to them. It seemed to be the same scenario over and over. I like that the two storylines intertwined.


    23. wow! It's been a long time since I found a thriller as good as this book! I could not put it down! you root for the bad guys and really hope certain characters get killed. this book had me hooked!



    24. Falling has turned out to be one of the most complex, genius novels I've read in awhile! Falling explores the sad, emotional-driven lives of two main characters: Matt Connor and Kelly Fienman.I had no idea what was going to happen next and couldn’t put it down. The mind of Christopher Pike is amazing! The bad guys were so intellectual and devious. The characters Kelly and Matt go through so much and when they meet up you can’t wait to see what happens next. I loved this book.The novel kicks [...]


    25. Kelly Feinman is an academic, married with a young daughter, but her life is on the dull side. So when the FBI recruits her to consult in serial murder cases, she decides to go whole hog and become an agent, much to the chagrin of her husband. Heroes are big in her specialty, mythology, and now Kelly grabs the opportunity to become one herself. Matt Connor thought he had it all, until his girlfriend, Amy, dumps him. Now he can't get over her, to the point where he is genuinely obsessed with gett [...]


    26. Great book Really good book. I was surprised over and over while reading it. Christopher Pike is a underrated author in which his books should be made into movies especially this one .


    27. Mr. Pike should continue penning books in adult fiction; Falling, in particular showcases his talent of creating worlds which are addictively creepy, climatic, with impressive psychological twists. Once could easily draw comparisons with this book to "Gone Girl", as they both have demented dark themes, and characters are both jilted lovers looking for revenge, but that's where the similarities end. Falling has a likeable protagonist in Kelly Feinman, a brilliant ex professor turned FBI agent/pro [...]
