Comments Road to Nowhere

  • Ana

    Feels like a combination of a David Lynch movie, 'Riders on the Storm' by The Doors and a love story. Four stars for the characters, four stars for the plot twist, and four stars for the ending.

  • Claire

    I read this when I was 13. That following Christmas, my parents surprised me with a tower of his books. I still read this book every so often. Oh that's right, there I said it.

  • Kia

    I read this book when I was about 11. And I remember telling my dad as he was driving me to school one morning that I liked Christopher Pike books because they were profound. He really made me think about things. At that time I had never read any books with the subject matter that some of his books contained. They had life, death, and religion. What I remember most about the YA horror/suspense/supernatural books at the time were that they were the slasher type where kids got together and got kil [...]

    We have a number of Christopher Pike novels in our junior high school library. A student who is an avid reader mentioned that he was really surprised that these books are on our shelves. I checked all of them out to read over the summer.The plot in Road to Nowhere contains sex, drugs, and some mild profanity. Though the plot seems predictable through most of the book, the conclusion has some great twists and turns that were entirely unexpected. The book combines suspense, mystery, and teen roman [...]

  • Aimee

    I really liked this book, although i feel like a dork (which i am) when i read these teen books. But i used to love them so much, i go back every now and then and find some of my old favorites. What i did not like about this book was its predictability. I had it figured out, except for a few minor adjustments, pretty much to a tee from the beginning. Also, Teresa is a songwriter. I see why Christopher Pike writes books and not songs from this book. There are around 4 full songs with lyrics in th [...]

  • Sabrina

    What can i say about this book? Another amazing Christopher Pike book. This book is suspensful and leaves you wanting more. Some stuff was predicatable but it was still so so so so so good!!Spoilers:I love how she was almost dead the whole book, and Free and Poppy where the characters from their story, Candy and John. I wished she did kill her ex and friend, but he did save her at the end. I also loved how she ends up meeting Candy's son when she is awake and alive at the hospital really cute, b [...]

  • Karol

    This book was amazing. I think the events were entertaining, and the fact that something kept nagging at me from the back of my brain that something was off. This all unfolded quite interesting. I really like how the book was written, as it made me feel as I were in a trance, reading this book and clinging to every work. Very few writers succeed in doing that to. The ending left me wanting a second book, but I still like how I could imagine the ending. It lets me fulfill my unrealistic dream tha [...]

  • Mehreen

    This is another of my guilty pleasures. I read this when I was 14. The idea to just pack and leave was quite a charming escape. It seemed very appealing. This story is about Teresa who is running away from home because there is no one who she can go back to. On the road she meets two strangers and a journey unfolds that might just save her life later on.I loved the theme of this story: that life is worth fighting for. Always. Life is worth living for.One of Christopher's best books.

  • Angie

    October isn't complete without a nostalgic read by Christopher Pike!! Enjoyable but typical Pike book. Spooky with a moral twist. It isn't one I'd read before, and Won't be one of my favorites of his. But definitely liked it. I still like to occasionally read his books that were so important to me in my early teens

  • dawna

    I'm re-reading this as part of my 90s nostalgia week. I am happy to report that I still rather enjoy this one (whisper of death was my other fav which I dont much care for now (cf my review earlier this week). it's certainly predictable and a little depthless but it's YA, very few authors can pull that off with such grace that it's truly ageless (the giver is one such example).

  • Tahni

    Back in the day this was one of my favorite Christopher Pike novels, so I reread it as part of my book-culling project, and while parts of it held up to what I remember, other parts fell flat and felt clumsy.I agree with anothe reviewer who said that the primary saving grace of the story is the story-within-a-story of John and Candy. *That* was interesting, thought provoking, and kept me going, and I did really enjoy the style in which it was told, alternating between two different perspectives. [...]

  • Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*

    Usually Pike's tempting words whirl me up into a state of orgasmic reading bliss, but here the release didn't match the build up. The traditional Pike strengths are here in their usual trimmings - strong characters, a bizarre and twisted story, a strange ending - but the pizazz existing in some of his other works is watered down.For one thing the pace wasn't as strong. It's not a slow book by a stretch, and there's a scene or two in there that's mystifying, but the road to nowhere left me on the [...]

  • Michaela Hayes

    I loved this book, it has such an amazing twist at the end! those who are reading this book it may go slow, but towards the end it gets absolutly wonderful!

  • Anidict13 IsTheName

    I like it. Not in a AHHHHHH!!! I'M SO SCARED SHITLESS!!! kind of way, but in a "Woah what just happened? That was disturbing" kind of way You know, when you think about it over and over and you can't get it out of your mind, and all the while you feel tingles and goosebumps running down on your arms?? That kind of feeling that you freak out because of it?Well,that's what I felt anyway. I'm not really a fan of horror genres or paranormal stuff, because, frankly? I don't like getting scared shitle [...]

    Over the summer my mom and I hit a few garage sales. I was eager to find something that would possibly entice my 13 yr. old nephew to get into reading and I remembered these books from when I was his age and how much I loved reading them. So, back to the garage sale. It was a very large Church garage sale and, to my surprise, I found stacks and stacks of these books. I had a hard time finding them anyplace other than ebay so I grabbed a whole bunch. And as much as I wanted my nephew to try them, [...]

  • Leah

    This book was really good. It was one of those book where you think you know what is going on and then all of a sudden you realize that you had it all wrong. It was definatly not a hard book to read either, I finished it in a half a day, so if you want something thats going to last you all the way from New York to California on a road-trip stuck in the car with your six brothers and sisters then I recomend you read this another time. If you want something interesing and quick then this is the bo [...]

  • Alex

    I always loved Christopher Pike's books when I was a kid, and I was so excited when I saw that my library suddenly had some on the shelves. It's been a long time since I've read one of these!I remembered this book only vaguely, so I had a great time re-reading it. The twist at the end was fantastic, and I remember most of his books having crazy endings like that. I will be re-reading the other ones my library has soon.

  • Tasha-Lynn

    Pike is a great writer. Not only did he write a story, he wrote two stories within that story! The more pike I read the more I realize he has quite a few "God/ devil, heaven/hell" references in his books. But not in an annoying in your face way. I had this story figured out pretty early on but it still kept my attention and I really enjoyed it.

  • Lori Kircher

    5/5 stars. This book was amazing, the plot kept me guessing and there's a major plot twist at the end that I would never have predicted. Two of the characters were a bit predictable, but other than that it was a thrilling, spine-tingling book. I would definitely recommend this book and reread it.

  • Shauna

    I read this book many many moons ago. So I don't remember every detail anymore. That being said, it was something I needed to read at that time in my life. Even as an adult now, it means something to me. I loved Christopher Rice books from 12 yrs old and on.

  • Sarah

    As with most Christopher Pike books, the twist in the storyline is almost a definite must. I read this book back when I was a pre-teen but I can still remember the anger I felt when the storyline goes a certain way and the satisfaction of the ending. Well, this deserved 5 stars for me.

  • Diana

    Well, as some people previously stated, this book is not a perfect novel , not even close I gave it 5 stars because I read it about 10 years ago, in that time it was like the best book ever for me. I recommend it for tween-teens who like to read thriller or mistery stories.

  • Kris Lugosi

    This book was fucking fantastic on soo many levels.I love the story within the story. I love the twist at the end. I saw some of it coming but the way Pike pulls the explanation together is way than I bargained for!

  • Amanda

    For about the first half, I was wondering where this book was going, if anywhere. But it has one of the coolest endings I ever remember reading in a Christopher Pike book, and that makes it well worth the fast read. I really enjoyed this book.

  • Jessie Mosley

    My favorite book by him

  • Nicola

    This is the 2nd time reading this book. It amazed me once again at how well the plot went. Definitely a must read if you're a Christopher Pike's fan.

  • Nessrine

    je l'ai simplement adoré

  • Paul Hamilton

    It's a little difficult for me to judge Christopher Pike's young adult suspense novels. I read them occasionally because my wife grew up with them, loved them, continually re-reads them for comfort and I like to have a frame of reference for an important part of her formative years. Some of them have been decent to good, but a few that I've started and never finished have read a bit too much like low-budget after-school specials crossed with The Outer Limits.Road to Nowhere is the story of Teres [...]

  • Anna

    I probably shouldn't have read this book after the last one of Pike's I've read, but I got these books for free and I was hoping that this one might be different.Well, I was wrong.Again, the cover of the book is all wrong. It screams horror and mystery. Certainly, this story was more of a thriller than "The Midnight Club," but honestly, it was so terrible that I couldn't even place it in that genre. The twist did not make my jaw drop; rather, I was amazed at the amount of plot devices present an [...]

    Teresa Chafey has run away from home. She has discovered that her boyfriend and best friend like each other and it has really pushed her over the edge. With her parents already gone for the weekend, it seems like such an easy thing to do, leave home, get in the car, and head off to another place. Not long after getting on the road, she sees a young couple standing on the side of the road, in the rain, so she stops and picks them up. It turns out that the couple is full of interesting stories and [...]
