    1. As I read the other reviews I wonder how horrible it must be to be one of those people who has to nitpick every little detail in a book rather than enjoy it. Personally, I found this an enjoyable story, with twists I didn't see coming and an interesting conclusion. I'd recommend it, just maybe not to an elitist book snob.


    2. The characters in this book are supposed to be 16. This is supposed to be a suspenseful thriller, a horror, for young adults. It is not. It is middle grade in writing. It is elementary in plot development and characterization. It is lacking in everything that would make it anything remotely approaching a good read.The writing is not terrible, just forgettable. I usually use a fair number of quotes in my reviews; I have almost nothing at all scribbled down in my notebook for this one: roughly 15 [...]


    3. Don't read this book. Please. I care about you and I want you to be happy.Why not, you ask? I'll tell you why - this book is terrible. Terrible. It reads as a first draft. I cannot stress how happy I am that I did not purchase this book when I saw it at a Barnes and Noble last month. Thank Zeus for libraries. This book does look amazing. The cover is well done, and the packaging is excellent. Asylums and their history fascinate me, as do pictures of abandoned buildings. The premise is interestin [...]



    4. That was so so good, whaaaaaa? Exceeded my expectations with flying colours, yes it did. Perfect halloween read! Had me doing this every couple pages:


    5. A copy of Asylum was provided to me by Harper Children's/Edelweiss for review purposes.The word Asylum alone evokes a feeling of dread. A twinge of apprehension. Unfortunately the title was the only thing that elicited that expected response, because the book was honestly extremely dry and wearisome.The idea behind the story was solid: 16 year-old Dan comes to stay for several weeks over the summer at a college prep program and he finds out their dorms are located in what once was an asylum for [...]


    6. I enjoyed this book much more this time around than the last time I read it. I was itching for a creepy yet easy read and that's exactly what this gave me. I always enjoy it when the plot of a story is centred around an old, dark building with secrets to be uncovered. This provided all of that and more! Add in the slightly disturbing photographs and creepy handwritten notes and I'm 100% sold!


    7. See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads Thank you HarperCollins Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. Mini review:I highly recommend Asylum if you want to fall asleep in the middle of the day- which mind you, I haven't done since I was 4 years old, and well, now. This book certainly comes with a lot of nostalgic moments, including a writing style that's vehemently juvenile. But of course, read this book if you're feeling lazy, and don't want t [...]


    8. Yo esperaba que el libro fuera igual de espeluznante hasta el final, pero bajó un poco el ritmo y creo que se resolvieron las cosas demasiado rápido para mi gusto. Aún así, Asylum cuenta una historia increíble, llena de momentos que te hacen pensar que de verdad alguien te está observando, que hace que escuches ruidos raros en tu casa y que temas por los protagonistas. Confieso que el libro me dio escalofríos (al menos las primeras tres cuartas partes) y tuve que dejar de leerlo de noche [...]


    9. I wouldn't say this book is amazing. I mean, I liked the book, but I wasn't attached to it. Before reading this book, I had so many expectations. The characters were likable, but I wasn't completely attached to them. Unfortunately, I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style either. From some of the reviews I read, they said that this book was a cheaper version of Miss.Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Unfortunately, I didn't read that book yet so I cannot compare the two. I just didn't enjoy [...]


    10. DNF at 50%.This book compares itself to Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Don't even. Just don't.I try really hard to finish this book but I wasn't enjoying reading anymore so I decided to dnf. I usually hate dnf books because they sometimes get better or find some kind of redemption.This book I feel like it would never change. Although the beginning was interesting some problems that I had i though it would be solved at least in half the book (of course it weren't).What was my big pr [...]


    11. من فکر کنم مدت هاست کتاب ترسناک نخوندم!و واقعا لذت بردم از این کتاب. کتابی دلهره آور، پرکشش و مهیجبا سبک روایتی کاملاً خاص و جدیدو عکس هایی بسیار زیبا و جالبمن واقعاً از خوندن این کتاب لذت بردم. یعنی دو روز نشستم 260 صفحشو یک جا خواندمو خیلی وقتی می شد که کتابی رو اینطوری نخونده ب [...]


    12. Check out my blog for this review & so much more! Rating: A Generous 2.5 Stars As soon as I saw that Asylum was being compared to Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, I immediately downloaded an ARC of it. Miss Peregrine's is one of my favorite books so I had high expectations for Asylum. I'm sorry to say that Asylum is not the next Miss Peregrine's but it is a pretty good horror/thriller. Miss Peregrine's was such an unique read because all of the photos that accompanied the story w [...]


    13. Okay so I have decided to do something outside the box and norm for bloggers. I am going to start a new book shelf on here named "no rating" which means I will not rate it. I firmly believe that sometimes we read a book and it is not OUR cup of tea and we rate it badly by giving it a one or a two or a three stars. I hate doing that just because I read the book and did not like it does not mean you may not like it. As a blogger we influence a lot of readers with our reviews and I just don't want [...]


    14. I wanted to read a scary book, something that would chill me to the bone, a dark, deep, twisted read. For me, Asylum ticked all of the boxes.The main character Daniel Crawford is on a summer programme run by the New Hampshire College but instead of staying on a College campus, the students are housed in an ex-run asylum. Dan meets Jordan, Abby and his new roommate Felix but after a short time at the asylum, nothing is quite what it seems. Dan starts to suffer from hallucinations, Jordan and Dan [...]


    15. What would you do if you attended a college that used to be an asylum for the criminally insane?In the book “Asylum” by Madeleine Roux, sixteen year old Dan Crawford was attending New Hampshire College Prep, which was just your average summer program - or so he thought. When Dan comes to know that his dorm used to be an insane asylum, he starts noticing a change in the atmosphere of the college. Something just wasn't right.Dan and his newly found friends, Jordan and Abby, discover an abandon [...]


    16. I cannot stress this enough - this is a horrible and poorly executed book, particularly in that there is no way to get a refund for the time I spent reading it. Time that would have been better spent on, oh, maybe reading nutritional facts on a cereal box or perusing depressing obituaries in the newspaper. While the cover sports an eerie image and promises disturbing found photographs to enhance the story - reminiscent of Ransom Riggs' technique in Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children - t [...]


    17. من واقعا از خوندن این کتاب ترسیدم! و واقعا می ترسم دو جلد بعدی مجموعه رو بخونم!


    18. This is a very generous 4 stars, more like a 3.75 stars. It gets a bonus 0.25 stars because of the mini little twist at the end that I wasn't expecting.This book definitely got better as it went along. It started out with a cheesy really underdeveloped storyline and really juvenile characters. The writing was weird and awkward at times. The romance was introduced really rapidly and had no build up so it didn't really make sense. All of this, however, was solved by the end. The writing got less j [...]


    19. Mucho gancho, muy atrapante. Aunque esperaba algo más terrorífico y volví a adivinar al asesino al toque, la autora sabe como manejar el misterio, como jugar con la cabeza del lector y por un momento sentí que me estaba volviendo completamente loca a la par de Dan intentando deducir qué pasaba (sentimiento muy apropiado para esta lectura. Muy creepy considerando varios mensajes que te deja). Las imágenes que acompañan la narración son espeluznantes y complementan muy bien la trama. Para [...]


    20. It's rare to see YA novels with a Gothic tone, but Miss Roux's Asylum leaves too many things to be desired:(1) Those teenage main characters act like they are 10 years old instead of 17.(2) The writing is decent enough, but authors such as Helen Grant had done a better job scaring me with her words.(3) The ending, what a mess!(4) There will be a sequel but I'm not looking forward for it.(5) The friendship among the main characters is unconvincing, their personalities and motives all feel very fo [...]


    21. The cover is super creepy and the story echoes that. YA creepy is about all the horror I can handle and this was just perfect. I think the first spine tingling thing was the main character having the same name as the warden. If you're into things that go bump in the night then this one's for you.


    22. This one was pretty much a bust across the board. Despite a wonderfully creepy cover and an attempt to ape the success of Peregrine’s vintage photography gimmick, Asylum failed to live up to the expectations set by the former, or the promise inherent in the latter. It’s hard not to compare Asylum to Peregrine, given the obvious influence (aaaaaand the fact that I read them back-to-back), but they actually provide an interesting set of contrasting misses. On the one hand, Peregrine, while ult [...]


    23. 3.5 era un libro que no me llamaba porque la temática no es lo mío pero me entretuve bastante claro que no pude evitar pensar en esas películas de terror como grave encounters (creo que así se llama ;p) y eso se me hacia algo creppy pero la verdad me gusto y tengo curiosidad de leer los siguientes



    24. Not doing a summary - I'm sure there are tons online, and I definitely don't want to accidentally spoil any of the twists for anyone. I wasn't sure about the book at first, to be honest. I'm glad I kept reading, though because it turned out to be a really good read. Not one of my favourites forever & ever (I can't quite empathize with Daniel's character that much. Male/Female mindsets? Plus his annoyingly obsessive crush on Abby.) but I will absolutely be checking out the rest of the series. [...]


    25. Waving the white flag on this one. It's way too juvenile, and the excessive use of the name DAN is making me want to stick a red hot poker into my eye over and over again


    26. خب عالی بود. مخصوصاً وقتایی که نیمه‌های شب سراغش می‌رفتم و می‌خوندمش. واقعاً هیجان داشت. متأسفانه حدس‌هام اشتباه از آب در اومد. بیشترین شکی که داشتم بی‌گناه از آب در اومد :|پیشنهاد من: به هیچ عنوان این کتاب رو از دست ندین و اگه میخواین حس مورمور بهتون بده شب بخونینش! خیلی کیف م [...]


    27. Madeleine Roux is geboren in Minnesota en woont nu in Louisiana. Haar zeer succesvolle blog Allison Hewitt is trapped is een unieke vorm van fictie in feuilletonvorm. Het gesticht is haar eerste boek voor jongere lezers. De zestienjarige Dan Crawford moet voor straf naar een speciale zomerschool om zijn eindexamen te kunnen halen. Toch heeft Dan er best zin in: op zijn eigen school heeft hij geen vrienden en wie weet wat voor mensen hij nu gaat ontmoeten. Al snel ontdekt hij dat het schoolgebouw [...]


    28. Any book written in the next 5-10 years that incorporates black and white photos will be considered a throw off of Miss Peregrine's. With that being said I'm going to be nice and not compare the two booksPros:I have to admit Asylum has a pretty great cover. In fact that was what drew me to the book in the first place. The photos inside the book were cool too(even if some of them were possibly photoshopped)and the fonts were neat.Cons:Unfortunately, the scariest part of this book was the photos, [...]
