Reviews - What do customers think about Hangman's Curse: Movie Edition (The Veritas Project)?
Hangman's Curse Jun 1, 2006
I thought the book Hangman's Curse was amazing! It was a "keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat" type of book. Just when you thought you knew what was going on, who did it, the book totally flipped. The book had a real good moral, too. That you should treat people all the same. Nobody likes to be teased and this book was an example of someone's attempt to eliminate the teasers, permanantly. The book kinda left you with a sense of all the "pieces of the puzzle" fitting back into place. Overall, I thought this book was very good and a must read.
Good tale. Mar 12, 2006
Frank Peretti is a master story-teller....He has never failed to please young and old. Everyone from my 9 yr old grandson,my 19 yr son......and yes ,even this 57 yr old mother loves to read Perreti. This one did not disappoint.......and I think it is never too early to stress to young people that "Bullying " of any kind is unacceptable. It is time that adults stop turning a blind eye to it. Get the book ...read it ....you will be impressed.

Frank Peretti is a pretty good author. I love this book, the Hangman's Curse--and I own two copies of it (one being the movie version and one being the version listed here). I also like the book Nightmare Academy, which I have read three times and own. Frank Peretti is a wonderful author mostly because of his mysterious plots and wonderful writing.

Well, I thought Peretti did a good job keeping the suspence real. There was a question about this book that I want to know about. Eh, anyway read it's a good book!

Overall, this book was okay. I can pretty much agree with the message, but at points it feels like you're getting hit over the head with it. For example, in the science class, they're trying to refute about eight different parts of evolutionary theory at once. If this was to advance the general theme, arguing against one part of it would have worked just fine. Through the entire book, it feels like Peretti is trying to cram in as many arguments against the school system as he can, at the expense of character devolpment. Some of the material feels like it's better suited for an essay then for fiction.
However, I enjoyed the plot. It moves at just about the right pace, is quite creepy, and is also original; you couldn't guess who the culprit was in the second chapter, unlike SO MANY other books out there. The end, especially, was exciting.
