Choker - Elizabeth Woods Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. That’s really all I have to say. That, and I nearly was sick from how disturbed I was at this book. I don’t see how anybody could have enjoyed reading it, although there are several positive reviews online. But I just cannot see it. From page one, this book was just…terribly written and bad, and the awful just increased steadily from that point, to where I couldn’t even my lunch at school after reading certain parts. I like a good creepy book every once in awhile, especially when they try to mess with your head. But no book should leave you feeling the way I am now. All I can say is that if you see this book, turn in the opposite direction and walk away very quickly. Don’t let that beautiful cover fool you!Read more?
