    The first book released for Stranger Things! Yes, please. But, bad news guys. It's not actually any good. Bond wrote this book like it was another one of her YA books but...yeah...kids should not be watching Stranger Things so I don't really know why you wrote a book about it exclusive...

    I love the Stranger Things TV series and was very excited to see that the universe was being expanded to include a series of novels and comics with Suspicious Minds being the first official prequel novel published in February 2019. The themes that make the TV series so appealing are...

    I wasn?t sure what I was going to think of this book set before the events that take place in the Stranger Things Netflix series. I mean, I love Stranger Things on tv, but would I love a book set before Eleven, Chief Hopper, and Dustin and Steve?s unlikely bromance hit the screen? ...

    It?s a book about doctors appointments. Over and over again. If that?s compelling to you pick this up, but to everyone else, skip. ...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/03/09/... For those of us who can?t get enough of Stranger Things, the good news is that Random House has partnered up with Netflix to publish a number of books based on the hit sci-fi horror web show. Of these, Su...

    Marked as DNF 2/11/19: Admittedly, I didn't make it far with this but I was struggling right from the start. I just didn't feel like this translated well into a book at all. I'm not sure I've ever read an adaptation of a movie or TV show aside from the Clarissa Explains It all adult co...

    While fans of the series will appreciate getting the backstory toEleven's mom, Terry Ives it isn't necessary to have watched the series to enjoy this. Bond offered an engaging tale set during the Vietnam War and the drafts. The story introduces to Bloomingtoncollege student Terry I...

    Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond is not nearly as good as the tv series, but it's still a solid prequel. But then again, the tv series does set an incredibly high bar, doesn't it? Anyway, this first prequel novel follows 11's mother as she undergoes experiments at the lab and up to the ...

    'Stay strange.' I recall that this first Stranger Things tie-in novel debuted on The New York Times bestseller list, much as the Star Wars novels invariably tend to do. The point, I suppose, is that the vast interest in such pop-culture phenomena bleeds over into books, which is not...

    I had very low expectations for this book, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it an enjoyable read that was generally well-written. It took me a while to get used to Terry having a personality, since I was used to the catatonic version we see in the show. I was pleased with the per...

    My biggest problem with Stranger Things is that there's too much pre-teen drama and not enough spooky stuff/weird government conspiracy stuff. I find myself far more interested in what's going on in Hawkins Lab than I am in what Dustin, Mike, Will, and Luke are up to. So, getting throu...

    Review from Tenacious Reader: http://www.tenaciousreader.com/2019/0... Suspicious Minds was not quite what I expected, but it turned out to be a wonderful read that gave a great backstory on Eleven?s mom, and how Eleven came to be in Dr. Brennar?s care and more about the origi...

    Actual rating is 3.5 stars. This book is a prequel to the popular television series that is on Netflix. In this one, we get the story of how Eleven's mother gets involved with Martin Brenner who is the doctor that believes he is "Papa" to Eleven during the first season. I enjoyed...

    "What a beautiful little piece of evil." Suspicious Minds is a prequel to the Stranger Things show, and the story focuses on Eleven's mom, Terry Ives. It's set in the late '60s / early '70s in Indiana, and whether this is a Stranger Things book or not, I found it to be an easy story...

    Feb 12, 2019
    This was disappointingly unexceptional, the pacing was slow, the characters lacked character and the plot felt drawn out and uninspired. I hate to be so negative about the book as I love the tv show but it isn?t a particularly good book and I fail to see why it has so many high ratin...

    "'Monsters,' she said., 'of course my brain has them.' As long as they stayed in there, everything would be all right. Wouldn't it?" Are you slowly rotting away while waiting for the next season of Stranger Things like me? If so, this first official novel may take the edge off tempo...

    If you are at ALL a fan of Stranger Things, you need to read this prequel about El's mom and the other test subjects, also gives more insight into Eight. Definitely enjoyed this and the evilness of Dr. Brenner still made me cringe. Now I want to go re-watch Season's One and Two again b...

    I can?t tell you this enough: Do not bother reading this book. Yes, that?s a hardcore heads up from one Stranger Things fan to another. It?s not what you hope it is. Not even a little bit. Full ranty review to come on Youtube later this week. If I were the sort of person to...

    If you've read Firestarter, you've read this book. Seriously, I couldn't tell whether Suspicious Minds was a parody of the former, or a thin-veiled attempt to copy it outright. I've never watched Stranger Things (nor really seen the appeal). My side job this semester was to ghostwrite ...

    This book was sent to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Video review to come. Stranger Things is a little television show made by a little company called Netflix. The series aired in 2016 and became an instant hit, spawning an endless valley of merchandise. It is...

    As the first ?Stranger Things? tie-in novel, ?Suspicious Minds? is a solid, albeit unspectacular start to what will surely be the first of many ?Stranger Things? novels to come. Detailing a year or so in the life of Terry Ives ? Eleven?s mother ? and set just prior to...

    I'm going to be blunt with this, because I had such high expectations going into it, and felt so utterly let down by it that I am glad I marathon listened to it over three days. (Spoilers abound, you?ve been warned) This is a very wordy novel with not a lot to say. What was pitch...

    This book has very different vibes from the Stranger Things show, but that does not mean it is bad. It really reads as a YA novel, set in 1970 but with a very contemporary writing style (which can sometimes seem a little odd but you can easily look past it). You can definitely read th...

    3.75/5 I?m a huge Stranger Things fan so when I found this book without even knowing its existence I bought it immediately!! It turned out to be a very interesting prequel for me even if there?s actually nothing that new to know. It still was a good add to the whole ST unive...
