Break My Heart 1,000 Times I tried Ghosts, love, and some crazy, creepy old dude should be a pretty good set up to a book, but I just was not interested The plot is given away right off the bat and really, to make itenticing to read, they should ve explained the Event first and then the outcome not the other way around. This book completely knocked me out A really interesting twist on the ghost story that is dark, compelling, ultimately hopeful, and at times painfully honest about grief I kept putting it down because I wanted to savor it and then picking it up again because I had to know what happened Oh yeah it s also beautifully written and full of three dimensional, believable characters.I hope that readers who like horror novels but don t usually read YA will find this because it is an exceptional horro This book completely knocked me out A really interesting twist on the ghost story that is dark, compelling, ultimately hopeful, and at times painfully honest about grief I kept putting it down because I wanted to savor it and then picking it up again because I had to know what happened Oh yeah it s also beautifully written and full of three dimensional, believable characters.I hope that readers who like horror novels but don t usually read YA will find this because it is an exceptional horror novel Damn, I wish I d written this Creeeeeeeeepy And one of the most interesting ghost stories I ve ever read.Review to come. I ve been excited about this book for a long time I liked Water s Generation Dead series although that wasof the cheesy read with undead students trying to fit in high school, whereas this book was a

read with undead students trying to fit in high school, whereas this book was a lotserious and sinister Ghost hauntings everywhere A psychopath serial killer An investigation into the paranormal activity of this town Whatcould you possibly want in a horror story But I really struggled with this one, and I think when it came down to it, the story is beyond predictable And I m not saying this as in the reader can guess what is going to happen I meant it as in the book pretty much tells readers what the situation is from the get go, and it slike the characters are trying to find out what the readers already know.I do want to say that I felt there was too much going on in this book With the ghost in Ronnie s house, to her father, to August Brittner and his pursuit of bringing back Eva, to Janine and her paranoia, to Stephen Pescatelli s mission, to James and Kirk There were so many elements scattered throughout the book, and even though they re all connected, I felt it really took away from the main story.The most interesting part of the book was August Brittner Through a huge portion of the book, I wondered why Waters decided to write the rare first person point of view in the eyes of Brian and not Gus Can you imagine what it would be like to get a glimpse of what s going on in his dark, twisted mind The man is beyond creepy like your next door neighbor is a serial killer kind of creepy But the thing that was mind boggling was everyone in town thinks he is a murderer, yet how in the world is he allowed to teach at school It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.However, the rest of the characters were unmemorable I couldn t really connect with anyone in the high school Veronica was a weird one She was supposed to be the pretty, flirty, popular girl in school, but she was moody and too often comes across as a bitch, not because she s a queen bee, but just because she has mood swings And Kirk, he s your nice guy always finish last type of character, but he s just not very lovable I don t mean he s not sweet and determined, but he s very forgettable Janine is an interesting character with her paranoia, but again, the book doesn t make a big deal on highlighting her at all, so she s lost among all the other drama.The twist that really got me was Stephen Pescatelli s confession concerning his feelings toward ghosts Who would ever thought, with his obsession in researching them, that he was terrified of them But he is definitely an interesting character with his curiosity and the role he played.Overall, it s not a bad book to read Like I said, it had a sinister plot filled with interesting things to keep you entertained enough However, I just had too many problems with the book, and I couldn t give itthan just an okay rating Originally reviewed on

endless, mindless loop, these specters return every day, doing something that they did in life For sixteen year old Veronica, her father appears every morning at the breakfast table, reading the same ghostly newspaper, sipping the same steaming hot cup of coffee, then looking up and smiling at some memory of his wife and daughter before disappearing There s the ghost of Mary Greer, a brutally killed young girl, whose ghost appears happily walking to her former teacher s house each morning There s a girl in the children s room of the library, happily receiving a book a boy who was murdered, whose specter repeats his death fall every afternoon These ghosts, from the mundane to the horrific, have ingratiated themselves in daily life for Ronnie, they are familiar, soundless presences, that she learns to respect, but ignore Except, the ghosts in Ronnie s life seem to be changing as time passes, evenghosts start to materialize, including a teenage boy, Brian, that inconveniently appears in Ronnie s bathroom each morning.The increased activity and presence of ghosts intrigues Kirk Lane, who has had a crush on Ronnie for longer than he can remember When he sees that Veronica starts taking an interest in ghosts, he sees an opening to catch her attention Kirk begins an extra credit project to document the different ghosts in town and enlists Ronnie s help What Kirk and Ronnie discover, however, is that the ghosts in Ronnie s life tell a story of betrayal, pain and death at the hands of a killer And now, with February 29 rapidly approaching, Veronica is next on the killer s list I am a huge Daniel Waters fan I loved his Generation Dead books, for their solid writing and nuanced characterizations, but most of all for the fascinating questions these novels posed about perceptions of life and death This latter quality is a driving theme in Waters Break My Heart 1,000 Times, and easily the most compelling part of this novel Why do some ghosts return, and why not others Why do they return doing what they do mundane tasks, running for their lives, getting beaten up for eternity What was the Event, and why did it happen And, in its aftermath, how do people deal with their loved ones haunting their lives Do they move on, or like Veronica s mother, do they withdraw into themselves, unable to do anything while the specters of the past linger There are so many questions posed by the book, with a satisfying lack of answers I love that Waters does not delve into the reasons behind the Event, and that it takes a while to actually piece together what has happened to the world I love that ghosts posequestions than they do answers On the whole, the premise behind Break My Heart 1,000 Times is phenomenal From a character perspective, Break My Heart also does a solid job, with two protagonists in Veronica and Kirk that are memorable and believable I love that Ronnie is a beautiful, confident young woman that does not want a relationship, is happy to date, and is unapologetic about what she wants Most contemporary YA novels feature heroines that find the love of their lives and eagerly dive into all consuming relationships how refreshing it is that Ronnie is not interested in anything of the sort Kirk, too, is a refreshing lead, and I appreciated his frankness and dedication to Ronnie, plus he reads like a real teenager, to boot While these two are drawn well for the most part, they are not without their own frustrations in order to provoke tension and to raise the stakes by the time the killer makes his move on Ronnie , there are some predictable and moronic moments on the part of both characters They discover who the killer is, and then go about this discovery in the most idiotic way possible i.e not calling the police, getting into a fight with each other and splitting up on the eve of the murder when they know the murder will occur, etc I m also not crazy about Veronica and her feelings for ghost Brian, which feels awkward and forced 1 On a side note, it s a little irksome because it so closely follows Phoebe and her feelings for living dead boy Tommy in Generation Dead Additionally, there is a level of cheese with regards to the writing Break My Heart 1,000 Times alternates four narrative arcs there are the larger arcs following Veronica s thoughts and Kirk s, which are interjected with narratives of the ghost boy in Veronica s bathroom, and Mr Bittner the killer, this is not a spoiler since it is revealed in the early chapters The exchanges with Mr Bittner, in particular, feel forced and at times almost cringeworthy as the villain reflects and converses about the girls he has murdered in his attempts to bring his daughter back to life it s all very Norman Bates and his mother ish, but not in a good way The novel is also a thriller, building up to the next murder on Mr Bittner s list While the story moves along at an assured pace and I appreciate Dan Waters skill as a storyteller, the book lacks vital tension Mostly, this is because we know who the killer is, and our protagonists know who the killer is, yet do nothing to stop the killer Instead, tension is created on the character level by forcing a wedge between Veronica and Kirk, which isn t quite an effective solution This said, Break My Heart 1,000 Times has its strengths in the quieter moments of the book in the pain that Veronica s mother feels every day, in Ronnie s best friend and her terror of ghosts, in Kirk s theorizing about the ghosts themselves Overall, Break My Heart 1,000 Times is another strong entry from the very talented Daniel Waters It s not quite as good as the Generation Dead books, but certainly an eerie and memorable spin on the traditional ghost story, and recommended albeit with a few reservations Interesting young adult high school ghost story with a dash of serial killer thrown in I was a bit confused as to what The Event was that caused the manifestation of all these ghosts in town and it was never explained Because of that, it felt like I entered the book in the middle of a series where important parts of previous novels are left out.I really did like the main character Veronica and

and the writing flows Maybe 2 1 2 stars This is an unusual ghost story with an interesting concept and philosophical ponderings on the whys and wherefores Some reviewers were bothered by the unexplained Event that caused the deaths of millions and probably opened the doors to the ghosts but I quite liked the author s choice of not explaining too much The combination ghost story murder

of those in the know were waiting for something to happen, and someone else to act In the meantime, each of them is specifically drawn, so that we know each player quite well there s Ronnie, and Kirk, and their teachers and then there s Brian There s Ronnie who s remarkable in her confidence and easy acceptance of things She is what draws everyone else in from the boys, to the odd ball best friend, to the grieving mother and yes even to a ghost or two as well as to some other crazies It s the last two that livens things up a bit or should I say darkens it a shadebecause while figuring out who plays what role is revealed early on, then things become just a matter of waiting things out, waiting them out as to what they ve got planned There s Kirk, the guy is remarkable in how not an asshole he could get Get this, it s not how he looks, though that s briefly mentioned, rather it sbecause he s cynical and on her level that there s a connection made at all They both possess a realistic perspective, him to the point of being cynical and her not almost but not quite on that level yet Anyway, Kirk is basically average boy who likes the girl and wants to catch her attention Then there s Brian, the ghost one of plenty in fact who has a past of his own Seeing developments on this end of the story, particularly as to feelings of certain characters directed at him was odd Imagine falling for a picture of a guy odd and sad because obviously you wonder if it really is going the direction it seemed to be headed, when there s this other part of me wholly expectant of nothing ever going past a certain determined point, a little like no, a lot like that love connection between Cas and Anna And if that comparison makes no sense to you, with him being dead and her being not so, I ask, how pray tell are things to pan out Of course, at this point, I realized I was reading too much into things and should just let whatever was coming come So, it would be easy to say that every single person here is to be drawn to Ronnie, but that may not be the most accurate thing to say All of them are so cleverly and individually drawn that even if things do start with her, it doesn t stay just with her Sure, she s girl confident, and Kirk is in love then Brian is Brian, but it s the baddy in this one and us knowing who he is and why he s doing certain things that made thingsinteresting Yet even when you couple all that with the oddness of everyone else having an inkling as to what he s capable of whilst nothing s done, I still enjoyed this Not a bad read Great original concept but slightly weird ending Don t know but something didn t quite mesh with me all the way.
