I finished dead zone and just finished thinner. I heard that dead zone was super awesome. High rankings on a lot of the people who ranked all his works. Thinner I heard was just ok with toward the bottom ranking. Well dead zone I had to make an effort with. The 2nd half was definitely better. But thinner I absolutely loved. I honestly couldn't put it down. Finished it in 4 days. From beginning to end it had me hooked. The ending was fantastic. One of my favorites for sure. It's cool to look at reviews but different books speak to readers in different ways.
