"Christopher Pike Is Scarily Repetitive"

I love this post. I need to remember to trot it out whenever I do a Christopher Pike reread (yes, I plan to do more, I'm just not sure how soon).

 

Whisper of Death wasn't included, so I figured I'd go through and identify its literary devices myself. The ones I'm sure about:

  • Arson
  • Dreams
  • Illicit sex
  • Revenge
  • Shootout
  • Villain Monologue

 

And the ones I'm iffy about:

  • Faked death (sorta dead, sorta not...)
  • Group secret (several people in on the secret, but unaware that others besides themselves knew)

 

That's only 6 "for sure" literary devices, whereas my long-time favorite Pike book, Remember Me, includes 14. Interesting...
