    One thought on “Friend”

    1. I liked Friend and its modern Frankenstein plot, but often this book seemed too predictable and the characters were difficult to relate to.

    2. Death can be the most devastating thing in the world for most people, symbolizing the tragic loss of precious friends and loved ones who will never come back. For as much as we fear it, it's a natural part of life. The end of life. Something we cannot undo after it's happened. However, for some of us, we question what happens afterwards, what happens after someone passes on and fades away into a better place. Is there any possibility of life after death? We don't know. We may never know. We may [...]

    3. Paul Conway -- nicknamed Piggy -- is an genius adolescent who has moved with his mother away from Boston in part because of problems with Piggy's behavior. Piggy is troubled by that and by his parents' divorce, and he finds it difficult to fit into small town life. He makes two friends and he has a friend he created -- a small robot. One human friend is his neighbor Samantha whom he can't bear to lose. He uses all his skills to keep her with him, which is what the horror aspect of the novel revo [...]

    4. the only character in the book you don't hate with white-hot fiery rage is a little girl who gets killedading this, one can see the skeletal elements of wes craven's '86 film, but it's only the very most basic elements that were taken: kid and his mom move to a new town, kid's a genius with a robot, girl next door is cute, she dies, robot's brain gets put in girl, murder ensues henstell's novel, paul is a horrible little boy who's terribly smart, but also terribly irritating and self-important. [...]

    5. I should not have finished this book. I resolved to myself not to read bad books, so what do I do? Keep plodding through this doorstop to the end.I rented "Deadly Friend" on Netflix and was surprised to find that it was based on a novel. I thought "a story about a robot AND a Frankenstein girl? Yes, please." But no, I should have stopped there. It's an idea that better rests in the mind than in tangible form. It is so overwritten it's obviously trying to stand on the same pedestal as the Stephen [...]

    6. Though I'm sure to upset some authors and publishers who, understandably, want five-star reviews, I've my own definition of the five-star system.*One Star: A crime against God and man.*Two Stars: Poor, or otherwise not ready for publication.*Three Stars: A solid work worth the money/read.*Four Stars: A superior, award-worthy achievement.*Five Stars: A standard setter, a work to stand the test of time, a work to be studied and read again and again."Friend," or "Deadly Friend," by Diana Henstell.S [...]

    7. I remember this awful movie from the mid-80s. Poor Wes Craven was forced to make ridiculous changes to please the producers, but I found one of those lists online: Terrible Movies Made From Good Books. This was on it so I thought I'd give it a go.I was bored by chapter 3 and gave up.

    8. Preferring the original title over it being packaged as 'Deadly Friend' (after the Wes Craven directed, studio butchered movie 'inspired by' the novel), I wonder if I can talk about the book without talking about the unintentionally hilarious movie that it inspired that featured Kristie Swanson as a robot zombieFriend is a hard book to read. It's an attempt on a modern retelling of Frankenstein incorporating youth aspects of infatuation, love, domestic abuse, technology, divorce, loneliness, and [...]

    9. No doubt, many folks will likely recognize the title from its infamous 1986 film adaptation - which, while memorable in some regards, hardly did the original story any justice.While Deadly Friend can be described as a modern day Frankenstein, it is at its core, a tragic love story. While the premise is much the same as the film version, there are several differences - most notably, the younger characters, which makes us feel all the more for them - especially Samantha.While Diana Henstell's orig [...]

    10. I wanted to read this because I had seen the film version, "Deadly Friend." Well, now my curiosity is satisfied, and I only finished the book to see how closely it followed the movie. I couldn't have tolerated much more of the author's purple prose and totally predictable plot.

    11. Wonderful darkly romantic retelling of Frankenstein. I will always feel some disgruntlement with Wes Craven for turning the story into the awful film Deadly Friend.

    12. She wrote it well such an extraordinary image the story goes to the Genius a student and his entire life, puppy love, inventions, compulsions, traditions

    13. Excellent book that I read when I was young. Made into a nice movie but it never worked as well as the book or recreated that magic. Still one of my all-time favorite stories.
