A review by corywbowers
Imaginary Friend, by Stephen Chbosky


I was really into this mostly. It does get too biblical and allegorical for my tastes, but I love how dark and gruesome it gets. It’s definitely odd considering it’s written like young adult fiction centered around children protagonists, but mostly if felt very Stephen King like in that way and worked for me. I don’t think it all makes sense and there are a bunch of plot holes, and I can see the repetitiveness turning people off, but it all seems very calculated and purposeful. This definitely could have been trimmed down, the ending is basically the second half of the book, but it was fun nonetheless. The Audible narration is also A+, one of the best performances I’ve listened to.
