Item description for Monster by Frank Peretti & Frank E. Peretti...

During a hike into the Northwest woods to escape the noise and tumult of the hectic city, Reed and Beck come face to face with a mysterious and deadly creature that is out to destroy everything and everyone it encounters.

Publishers Description

Some monsters are real. Miles away from the hectic city, Reed and Rebecca hike into the beautiful Northwestern woods. They are surrounded by gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, and hundreds of acres of unspoiled wilderness. During their first night of camping, an unearthly wail pierces the calm of the forest. Then something emerges from the dense woods. Everything that follows is a blur to Reed--except the unforgettable image of a huge creature carrying his wife into the darkness. Enter into deep wilderness where the rules of civilization no longer apply. A world where strange shadows lurk. Where creatures long attributed to overactive imaginations and nightmares are the hunters . . . and people are the hunted. Frank Peretti delivers page-turning thrills and keeps listeners guessing in this "New York Times "best-selling novel where things that go bump the night are only a heartbeat away.

Reviews - What do customers think about Monster?

Great Vacation Book! Hard to put down, didn't want it to end!  Dec 8, 2008
I've read other books by Peretti, some I liked, some I loved (Present Darkness), some that were just so so (Oath). This one was fabulous. It's an enjoyable book to read, written in his "movie" style that has a modern appeal. You see things clearly in your head. Don't expect some overwhelming Christian message or anything like that, just expect a well written story that entertains and intrigues (and doesn't offend with unneccesary language.) It's a great book and I highly recommend it. Well done, Mr. Peretti!
What Happened?  Dec 6, 2008
I need to start by admitting that before reading this book I knew nothing about Peretti as an author. I picked up the book because I was interested in the subject matter. That being said:

This book started off with an excellent premise and a downright creepy style that quickly turned into a best. I do not understand why this is billed as a horror novel. A horror novel should rate a "mental R rating" with the reader. This book was PG at best. I laughed over the inside flap reviews that claimed the book would, "make it hard to sleep" or some such drivel. This book is the simple equivalent of a popcorn-munching Saturday matinee feature.

I have to admit, I almost stopped reading the book twice. Once when I (mistakenly) thought the author was going to cop-out on his sasquatches and the other time, just due to the sheer boredom of reading the SAME THING over and over again. I felt as mentally abused and physically tired as the books character Beck. Alright already, we get it, they (the family) are fleeing from something, for goodness sake, this information is neither entertaining nor pertinent to the story anymore! You've told us IN DETAIL a dozen times! And, by the way, the MYSTERY of the sasquatches doesn't need to be dumbed-down by explaining every minutia of their actions. Leave something up to the imagination of the reader!

This book is WAY TOO LONG, very weak on character development, and overly descriptive of unimportant details. Just using more words does not make your argument or story any better. Less is more! The cliche characters with their uber-cool jobs were mishandled. The other characters all blended together, so much so that, by the end, I didn't care who died, because I couldn't remember who they were or what they did anyway.

Doggedly, I read to the very end, and it ended better than expected. I might pick up another Peretti book in the future. I hear many claim he is a Christian writer, but I didn't really see that shine through in this book. This book went from a five star, to a two star, back to a four star, and finally settled on a solid three stars. Genre/subject matter fans will be disappointed, horror fans are going to feel downright angry, and B-Movie fans will write it off as another piece of mediocre fiction.
Christian Horror At Its Best  Oct 18, 2008
People are being killed by a creature, which is covered up and blamed on bears in a novel by Frank Peretti. Am I talking about "Oath"?

Fortunately, the similarities to my least favorite Peretti novel end there (though I may be alone). While both fit into being horror, they are two different books. "Oath" is more of an allegory, while "Monster" fits more into science fiction.

I won't spoil any of the surprises, but it is a good story. There are very effective twists that may surprise you.

Some question the "intelligent design" aspect. To be honest, I think some people who believe in evolution refuse to be as open-minded as a true scientist should be. I doubt this novel will change the minds of many, but I have two comments:

1. It does bring up a weakness of evolution -- I won't tell you what it is because it will spoil the story, but it is clear what that weakness is by the time you finish.

2. Do you have to agree with the point of view to enjoy a novel? I enjoyed the novel Jurassic Park and the first and third movies of the series even though I disagree with their perspective. Can the other be done as well?

This is a good novel, and to me, the most positive of his novels since the darkness series.
Monster  Sep 16, 2008
I've read this book before in hard back, it was so good I got it in paperback so I could read it again and share it with others.
Awful Narration!!!  Aug 30, 2008
I've just started listening to the audio version of this book. But I have to say - the author should NEVER EVER EVER EVER read another book. His voice is distracting. He sounds bizarre and almost like a cartoon character voice. I have started and stopped this book 3 times now because I honestly can not stand to hear his voice. Thankfully, I have the abridged version, so when I finally do finish it, it won't be too long. But really - with a voice that awful, how could he have thought to read the book?!?!
