Blog Tour: My POV of Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan

"You probably want to hear about Jennifer and the demons and how I played chicken with a freight train and—oh yeah—the weird murder and how I found out about it—you're definitely going to want to hear about that. But first, I have to tell you about the stupidest thing I ever did . . ."

Sam Hopkins is bored with his status as a preacher's kid. So when a group of guys notorious for being in trouble offers him friendship, he accepts. Before long, he has several new skills—including hot-wiring cars.

At school, there's an eccentric loner named Jennifer. When Sam defends her from being bullied, she begins to seek him out as her only friend. Her ramblings often seem illogical . . . but then start to contain grains of truth. One leads Sam to discover that one of his new friends has been killed. And then she tells him, "I'm looking for the devil." Sam doesn't know what that means, but he knows it's a matter of life and death that he figure it out.

Everyone else thinks Jennifer is suffering from schizophrenia. But Sam is starting to wonder if there could be something prophetic in her words. Discovering the truth is going to be both crazy and dangerous.--Goodreads


What a CRAZY ride! This is one adrenaline pumping, action packed story.  Crazy Dangerous is full of  mystery, adventure, humor and shall I say mentally challenged people. So the story begins with Jennifer Sales having a “vision” of a horrible event to come. The only thing is she is not playing with a full deck if you know what I mean. Because of this no one really take her seriously. But she finds a friend when Sam Hopkins rescues her from getting bullies. This is when the real fun beings and the adventures take on a whole new level.

You meet a good number of characters in this book but by far Sam takes the cake which make sense since he’s the protagonist. I found Sam’s snarkiness to be hilarious and one of the things I always looked forward to reading. Being a preachers son you would think he would always be on the straight and narrow but not Sam. He finds himself between a rock and a hard place as he is bullied into hanging out with the less reputable trio know as Jeff Winger, Ed Polanski and Harry Macintyre. It was interesting to say the least to see these characters interact. As the story builds the crazier Sam situation gets.

This was definitely an interesting read with a ton of things going on. I was constantly on the edge of my seat and scared to see what was around the corner. If you are looking for a  great thriller don’t pass this one up. It’s absolutely worth it!
