His distances were the quarter mile and the half mile, but before he even stepped to the starting line, he would have jogged two miles and run a dozen sets of wind sprints.

His distances were the quarter mile and the half mile, but before he even stepped to the starting line, he would have jogged two miles and run a dozen sets of wind sprints arried the warm-up too far, especially when he sweated so much that he always needed to drink before he ran, which to them was a sure prescription for a cramp. His stomach didn’t seem to mind. He favored a particular brand of lemonade that came in eight-ounce clear plastic cartons that could be purchased only at gas stations

After five thousand years she was again mortal. They did it for kicks. When Alison first read the chain letter signed "Your Caretaker," she thought it was some terrible sick joke.

After five thousand years she was again mortal. The dead alchemist's experiment has worked. Someone, somewhere knew about that awful night when she and six other friends committed an unthinkable crime in the desolate California desert. And now that person was determined to make them pay for it.

Of the four Pike novels that I've read, Chain Letter is by far the best

Of the four Pike novels that I've read, Chain Letter is by far the best. Pike works within a strict formula that involves a whodunit, attractive young protagonists, and a thrilling sense of danger.

Each of the seven teenage friends involved in the death of a lone stranger on a deserted California road receive letters signed "Your Caretaker" demanding dangerous, impossible things and threatening violence--then fatal "accidents" begin to occur
  • This is what started my love of Christopher Pike's book as a teen. I bought this to introduce my horror loving niece. Years later, I still laugh about the line where the one girl offers her fried chicken breast to her guy friend by saying, "Do you want a bite of my breast". I'm sure he interpreted that the same way I did. Haha

  • Arrived before estimated date. Exactly as described.

  • This was my favorite book as a teenager. I'm so glad I was able to get a copy. Brings me way back.

  • Excellent condition

  • This was one of Christopher Pike's best works to date. The struggle to save their lives while upholdind their dignities and morals is poignantly shown in this horror masterpiece that starts down the "I Know What You Did Last Summer" road, and manages not only to surpass that mediocre movie, but leave it in the dust. Pike's usually ever present supernatural twist is not involved in this book, but there is so much hinted mistery, you forget to miss it. Far less bloody than most of Christopher Pike's books, it is, nonetheless, chilling, scary, and NOT FOR PRETEENS. Other than that, read it, you won't regret it.

  • I don’t even know how relevant this even is anymore. Would todays kids know what chain letters are? Do they get passed around through text messages or social media now? Postage need not apply? As someone who’s received and sent actual mail chain letters before this one tickled me something fierce. I FELT it, you know?

    Pike likes to up the ante in his books and he doesn’t hold back on my punches, that’s for sure. He gets right down to it in CHAIN LETTER and doesn’t leave anyone behind. Getting a random letter in the mail from someone is creepy enough but having it make demands and then threatening physical harm if they’re not followed through is downright terrifying. Do you ignore it and take the chance? Call the police even though it says not to? Do what it’s asking? We never believed in these things but, you know, JUST IN CASE, we did them anyway because they usually involved some kind of harm to a loved one a la stepping on a crack if we didn’t. But here, with these kids, the letter writer dangled a piece of their history in their faces, rather I Know What You Did Last Summer, just not as slasher-like.

    Every promise the letter writer made came to pass and no one was left out of the mess. Yes, it’s a silly book with some contrived dialogue and poorly-developed characters (although I do think Pike did storytelling better than most of his kind) but it’s still creepy. People start disappearing, leaving incredible amounts of blood behind. People are getting hurt, sometimes almost quite badly, and characters and being genuinely scared. Pike knows how to write suspense and it kept me turning the pages, silliness aside.

    It ended as a lot of these old school horror novels are wont to end but it still gave me that nostalgic bit of love that I was looking for from this kind of horror. The want for it just never goes away. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of these books. They just hit my horror bone so right whenever I read one and I can’t get enough. YA horror isn’t written like this anymore and that makes me sad. It’s hard to beat the jump scares and shameless terror that these books inflict. The world needs more of it.

  • I'm so excited I found these books on Amazon! Christopher Pike used to be one of my favorite authors as a pre-teen/teenager, my girlfriends and I devoured all of his books back in the day, always checking the bookstore for the newest release. I plan to order some of my old favorites like this one and re-read them, and would definitely recommend his books to any young adult reader who enjoys a good murder mystery!

  • Of the four Pike novels that I've read, Chain Letter is by far the best. Pike works within a strict formula that involves a whodunit, attractive young protagonists, and a thrilling sense of danger. In this particular outing, these elements are bolstered by a stronger-than-average set of characters, and above all the nifty idea that a chain letter is making demands that must be met.

    This book could have served as the inspiration for "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and shares that movie's premise of a shared horrible secret that comes back to haunt the young beautiful friends who left a man for dead.

    Pike has a knack for moving a story along in the manner of a conventional thriller novel, and this book is extra exciting because of the gimmick of overt threats and unspeakably horrible demands.

    By playing on an Urban Legend, Pike has tapped into something that hits a little closer to home than most of his works.

    If you're going to give Pike a try, this is the book to cut your teeth on.
