"Christopher Pike Is Scarily Repetitive" - applied to Weekend

I figured I'd post about Weekend's literary devices really quick, before trying to churn out a review. Here's how it breaks down:

  • Arson
  • Dream Sequence
  • Drugs
  • Faked Death (although this one is completely accidental)
  • False Identity
  • Revenge
  • Secretly Related
  • Villain Monologue
  • (ETA: Group Secret  - I forgot to add this one since it doesn't actually come in until the end of the book.)

 

That makes eight nine total, two three more than Whisper of Death, but six five fewer than Remember Me.
