No, Strange Times is a website that allows you to monitor the very latest in reported UFO activity and conspiracy-theory related events. Think of it as a Huffington Post for the tin-foil-helmet wearing crowd. The site is pretty all-encompassing, and easy to lose yourself in.

I listened to absolutely nothing except golden oldies and Weird Al until I was in high school. I stumbled onto punk rock when I was 15 and considered myself musically "cool" but now that I think about it, starting a punk music blog is pretty much the pinnacle of fanboy geekdom - so, still a music nerd it seems.
I was telling you about golden oldies. I never lost my love for the rock 'n roll of the 60s, which is why Italy's The Peawees are striking such a chord with me. We eventually learn how Charlie has a connection to the supernatural events taking place in southern California with the climax taking place in a crypt in the basement of a spooky mansion next to an old graveyard while a great earthquake rocks the region, releasing all kinds of evil creatures.
The boys have to find a way to stop this evil while keeping their underwear clean… or even on. I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway. While admittedly I am not the target audience for this book, I had a couple of problems with it.
For a book aimed at younger readers, I was bothered by the language used by the characters throughout the book. I realize that many would say that the language is realistic, that eighth grade boys use that kind of language, and I concede that point, however, it doesn't help that they are encouraged by television, movies, and books aimed at that tar I received this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

I realize that many would say that the language is realistic, that eighth grade boys use that kind of language, and I concede that point, however, it doesn't help that they are encouraged by television, movies, and books aimed at that target audience. Just a pet peeve of mine.
I also felt the characters were not developed as well as they might have been, as though the author felt that would add too many pages to a book aimed at young readers. Overall, I enjoyed the story. Sep 29, Thomas Adcock rated it did not like it. So, I won this book for free on Goodreads in a giveaway. The short and to the point review is right below! So, this story just did not click with me. I didn't finish it either, got to pg 50 and just decided that I was not going to continue it. To me, the characters were boring and for a prequel novel thats only pgs long, there just wasn't enough character development into the 'origins' of the characters in the short time that the novel gives it.
Therefore, if you were a fan of the first book, So, I won this book for free on Goodreads in a giveaway.

Therefore, if you were a fan of the first book, you'll like it. If this is your first jump into the series, you might find yourself wondering if you're watching a cheech n' chong film. However, don't get me wrong. Despite my disappointment, I tip my hat off to the author for putting something out there. Bravo to you, Mr. Your book didn't click with me, but I'm sure there are others who will have different opinions.
Nov 14, Boyd rated it really liked it Shelves: The book has a good story and fills in how this group formed and why. The story is a little rough in the very beginning and made me wonder if it was going to be a rough read. But once I got to chapter 3 it started to take off and once it gets going it turns into a very good read. About the only thing I think the Author could have changed is to maybe cut back o The book has a good story and fills in how this group formed and why.
About the only thing I think the Author could have changed is to maybe cut back on some of the slang used in the book. Sometimes it seems like he is forcing it in and trying too hard to use it. But his story is really good and makes you want to keep moving forward and find out how it ends. Overall it is a really good story and a good fast read and makes what to see where the story goes next.
Feb 05, Michael rated it really liked it. Strange Times is a fun and quick read directed at a young teen audience. At times the writing suffers, and can even be confusing or redundant, but the overall story is entertaining and worth a read.
Strange Times: The Ghost In The Girl
The premise is simple — a group of middle school boys form a Scooby-doo-esque crew — and there is just enough charm and heart to leave the reader excited about what adventure they will have next as the book comes to a conclusion. Sep 22, Ashley Ferus rated it it was amazing. I thought this book was entertaining. It was funny, a bit juvenile, but it's the portrayal of 8th grade boys, so it's suppose to be! The story is told as if you were sitting down with someone and they are telling you an epic story of an event that happened to them.
Because of this or maybe because of the graphic novel, which I haven't read I feel like the book lacks details.

You know that characters are fat, skinny, young or old but that is pretty much all you get. Even the places that the boo I thought this book was entertaining. Even the places that the book takes you, I feel like it gives you just enough detail to get by. I would have liked to have had more description. In summary, it's funny, entertaining and a quick read.
Nov 11, Cheryl rated it did not like it. Received a ARC book from Goodreads for an honest review I did not like this book and did not finish due to I could not get by the swear words for this age group. Is this needed to tell the story?
