    One thought on “Boo Hiss”

    1. I will say outright that I am not a big fan of Christian fiction. I feel like the messages are being shoved down your throat in the most contrived manner possible. That having been said, I thoroughly enjoyed the entire Boo series up to and including Boo Hiss. I have seen other reviews that get upset about the portrayal of small town, Middle America. Having lived in small town, Middle America my whole life, I can say the characterizations are spot on, if slightly exaggerated. Now, I will not say [...]

    2. Although BOO HISS works as a stand-alone novel, I highly recommend reading the first two books in the series first ~ there is a lot of fun background information that you won't want to miss. The towns people from Skary are quite the quirky, fun and likeable characters ~ they will keep you laughing and shaking your head ~ sometimes both at the same time. Ms. Gutteridge's books are delightful and light-hearted reads ~ I hope she continues with many more stories in this series.

    3. I feel like I was transported into Leave it to Beaver meets Night Vale except it's not really Night Vale. It wants to be quirky, it wants to be funny but in some benevolent, ice-cream-social-fellowship-hall way I used to experience in my mother's church growing up.It's supposed to be Christian fiction but I don't really get that except in that milquetoast Midwestern way I described above. it's so nice; it's so flat; it's so chummy and yet there's a lot of casual sexism going on. The subtle teasi [...]

    4. Haha, i totally forgot that i've read these books until i saw this one at the library and was like, hey, this is new anyways, the story of Skary, Indiana is pretty entertaining. The books are totally character driven, so the weird plot that seems totally lame doesn't really matter. It's a little bit Jesus-y(particularly the second book as I recall) but it's not that annoying.Plus, the book offers a plan for a bookstore that I think would be totally amazing. bodice-rippers in the cheese section, [...]

    5. What chaos one (two?) snake can cause! Loved the craziness that went into hunting down Bob and Fred. The sheriff's romance felt a little sudden, but I liked the way it played out, and I'm glad that Martin has a shot at being mayor. I liked the idea of updating Skary as much as most of the town did, but I did like how it breathed new life into the church. So glad that Ainsley and Wolfe will be parents and that Wolfe will be writing again.

    6. Sophomoric. I gave up on this book on page 41. Apologies to the author if it gets better later on but I don't have the time or interest to find out. Not sure who the intended audience is. Reads like it is intended for early teens but that is not how it is advertised on the fly-leaf or shelved in the library. Yes, the library. Thank goodness I didn't pay for this book.

    7. Lots is happening in Skary: lots of new businesses opening (or changing!), the new theater group is getting ready to put on a play, Wolfe who's suffering from writer's block is willing to try anything, a rare two headed snake is on the lose and a shady character is introduced. And it seems like the Sheriff is falling in love

    8. I haven't read the other books in this series. This book was worth the read. I laughed out loud at several parts in it. However, some of it just got repetitious and kind of boring. I did, however, really like how this, being a "Christian" book, didn't shove ideas down the reader's throat. This is a quick and easy read, so even if you don't like it, it's not too big a deal.

    9. A great, if not spectacular, penultimate entry in Rene Gutteridge's Boo series. If you liked Boo and Boo Who, there's little chance you won't feel the same way about Boo Hiss.

    10. Third book in the series. Follow the quirky characters through their adventures, or maybe should be misadventures, in the small town of Skary, Indiana. If you enjoy laughing while you read, yet finding a lesson mixed in, then you should give this series a try.

    11. I really like this series, it seems like you could read about the crazy antics of this town forever. I feel like I know every character. A nice, quick read that will leave you wanting more

    12. This was just as good as the others. Funny, funny series. I am sad to be on the last book knowing this is the series last one.

    13. I enjoyed this book however read it before I realized it was #2 in the series. Am now reading Boo the first book in the series. It is an interesting read.

    14. Great fun. So many brilliant sneaky things I didn't catch when first read years ago.This time I listened to the audio book.
