    1. Well this was disappointing. I finally got to read this book because of a challenge I'm doing with the wonderful Winchester boys, BUT, I didn't like the book like I was hoping. The story with the ghost was decent enough but it was just weird reading about Sam & Dean. I couldn't really picture them as themselves in the show, which is one of my fav shows. They talk about the Impala and music and some funny stuff from Dean, but it just wasn't the same. Damn it! Well, I tried. I guess I will sti [...]

    2. WTF did I just read?ATTENTION READERS!Readers who are going to buy this book, please consider reading my review before you actually spend your precious money on it. I know its Supernatural, you love the show, but consider my review as a warning. And People who REALLY liked this book, please don't read my review.First of all, I would like talk about the cover. Dean and Sam are looking hot as usual, background is okay, like the fog, but whats up with this red circle (whatever it is) saying "An ori [...]

    3. I don't think Keith DeCandido did as much research on the show as he claims he did in his author's notes in the back of the book. He shows a decided lack of insight into the personalities of both Sam and Dean, in particular, Dean. Hell, he couldn't even get their physical descriptions right! All we get are vague descriptions that could be anybody. Or maybe he just assumed we would know who he was talking about from a few brief lines of text?The inconsistencies abound in this book. For starters, [...]

    4. I wanted more of Sam and Dean and i got them and their personality and attitude shown through a bit. I really wanted to love it but it was slow going and i got bored. I liked picturing sam and dean on the new hunt and the Edgar Poe mystery was interesting.

    5. If I had to describe this book in less than ten words:I've read better fan-fiction.Seriously. Without a doubt, this is one of the top ten Worst Books I've Ever Read. It was a struggle to get through.I didn't go into Nevermore expecting much, just a good, fun, stupid read about my latest TV obsession, but I expected the author to at least get Sam and Dean's characterization down. Within the first thirty pages, I was completely horrified by just how "off" they were:Dean is an idiot whose sole inte [...]

    6. Not a bad job on this novel, since it is based off a tv series. Being a fan of the series, I can be a bit critical about staying in character. I am used to movies based on books but this was the opposite. The tv series came first, then this. This particular story sees the brothers to New York to help out a friend of a friend with a ghost haunting him, calling out "love me." While there, they take on another, darker case. Someone is creating a murder ritual to bring Edgar Allen Poe back to life S [...]

    7. This was a decent tie in novel and I could totally see it as an actual episode - the characterization of Sam and Dean's pretty on the nose and it has a decent sense of humor. Now, if only the conclusion to both cases, Poe and the haunting, was a little more satisfying. Nevermore is set early on in season two and I think it would have made a fun episode seeing the brothers in their younger days. Favorite moments: p. 171, "Sam shrugged as he sipped his coffee. "What can I tell you, Dean, it [The M [...]

    8. I like the extra things the author threw in - such as the recommended soundtrack at the end of the book. I like that you can tell the author loves the Bronx. I like that the author has the same suppurating mental scars as we all do who have tried to find parking in a large metropolitan area.On the other hand, descriptions of driving and the mechanics of how to fit a large car into a small space let's just say a little goes a long way. Also, the author's Dean is not my Dean. Neither is his Sam m [...]

    9. Yes, I read some Supernatural fan fiction, and I thought it was pretty great. So don't you judge me! The author did a fantastic job of switching between the brothers perspective throughout the story, and captured their personalities and inner monologues pretty perfectly. The plot was a bit predictable - just like the show - and mimicked the show pretty well in terms of pacing, characterization, etc. Basically I got exactly what I thought I would and I asked my library to order the next in the se [...]

    10. Alright . Let me start by saying that I am a HUGE SPN fan (well duh)I was ecstatic when I realized that some genius (more than one someone) had written books to this series. Because, I really really do love me them books. I had to read them. now. right now! But then my rational side kicked in and was all like But then I rarely listen to that part of my brain when it comes to SPN.This book was a little weird to get into.Mostly because it was difficult for me to go from watching the boys and their [...]

    11. I love Supernatural with all of my being and every little fiber of my heart, so naturally, I ran to this book with open arms. And all in all, it wasn't terrible. But it's really the little things that got at me. The biggest issue I had: Sammich is not and will never be acceptable. But it was pretty good, I mean it was basically like reading iffy fanfiction. Let's be real; I read Redemption Road so I've got some pretty high standards. This was alright though. Enjoyable, just not up there. The mom [...]

    12. I love this series, and this book almost read like an episode! I just missed a little of Deans sarcasm, they could have cranked that up a bit.

    13. I make no secret of how much I enjoy the show Supernatural, the characters, and the story and I have also made no secret of my love of the books, by all the different authors that have written for these books since their inception. This is the first Supernatural story, so it is basically the one that all others are based off of, and this one did not disappoint. With a healthy dose of Poe, and the usual hunting and brotherly bantering that can only be seen in a Supernatural episode, this was a ha [...]

    14. My first DNF book!Disappointing. Uhmmm, Actually I DNF this book,I didn't have the guts or courage to finish it.So lame! I stop at page 150. It sucks. Really. Boring.I don't like how Keith R.A. DeCandido write the story,because SERIOUSLY?! I watch, and know the characters of MY LOVES Dean and Sam.Urgghhh I mean, it's really different! I just want to read the book 2 of these series.I don't recommend it to anyone.:)Hopefully Witch's Canyon is far more promising than this one.*crossfingers*

    15. 1.5The blurb promises a lot more than you'll get.You won't be surprised that with a title Nevermore plus a specific setting, it has to be about Poe or his works. Someone is trying to recreate a resurrection ritual killing people in a manner found in Poe's stories and poems. Now, I love Poe and usually when his motifs are used in fiction, I like it. Here, it fell flat. Oh, and boring. Dean calling Sam Sammich (I don't remember that ever happening) and listing every single band and their songs did [...]

    16. 2.3*Okay! So I've been taking a break from the show for a few months now (I'm only on season 3) and I missed these characters so I picked this up. It starts off really refreshing, Sam and Dean seem in character, there's mystery, and it's pretty fun. But then as you get introduced to more and more characters, they completely irked me - in every way. Annoying, stereotypical andrange. The dialogue was getting more irritating and just felt less and less enjoyable as I went along. The mystery was int [...]

    17. There are four of us in a group of some of my best friends, and we're all fans of the show Supernatural (though some of us are more caught up than others, ahem). Along the way, we even acquired nicknames from the main characters, and it should surprise none of you that I'm Sam. So when I stumbled across copies of media tie-in novels, written by one of my favorite media tie-in authors, I had to snag a few. Nevermore is the first, which I probably would have started with anyway, as a Baltimore r [...]

    18. Supernatural: Nevermore is my first foray into the world of the Supernatural tie-in novels. I'd been wanting to read one of the books for some time and by a lucky happenstance, I found this title at my library. The fact that it's the first of the tie-in novels was an added bit of serendipity. I have to say, I'm mighty pleased with the book. In my opinion, the author really nailed the voices and characterizations of Sam and Dean. Throughout the book, the dialogue and rapport between the two were [...]

    19. For English, please visit CommunityBookStop.Orijinali Zimlicious'ta.Supernatural fandom’ının dibine vurmuş bir insancık olaraktan tabii ki kitaplarını da merak ediyordum. İlk kitabın, isminden de anlaşıldığı gibi, Winchester’lar ve Edgar Allan Poe’yu bir araya getirdiğini gördüğümde de heyecanlandığımı itiraf etmem lazım. Kitaba bayılmadım, ama nefret de etmedim. Arada kafa boşaltmak için okuyacak kolay bir şeyler aradığımda serinin devamını da okuma potans [...]

    20. My main complaint about this is the plot itself. The case of the Poe murders was so promising- a person killing people in the ways that the characters in Poe's works have died? I'm in. However, the conclusion was just too simple. I already knew who the killer was even before the brothers started to piece things together, which is not a good thing in mysteries such as this as the key to a good mystery is to make the reader be able to solve it with the character (or after the character has solved [...]

    21. In every novel I read, there are always standard points that I ramble on about; plot, pacing, characters, writing style, etc. Such always helps me express my sentiments and reactions to the book I've just read.However, sometimes doing this is damned impossible.Generally, such has always been the case for Sherrilyn Kenyon's books and JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. When I'm immersed body, mind and soul into a novel, I can't analyze it in the same manner I would with other books. The character [...]

    22. I am such a sap for this TV series. I think it is one of the best written science fiction shows on television and definitely one of the more witty since Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. The television shows' strong themes of family and fighting the good fight are still present in this book. However, the writing is on par with that of other novels based on pop culture series. DeCandido had Sam's voice penned from the beginning, but I didn't start hearing Dean's voice until about three quarte [...]

    23. about the book: Sam and dean are back in this new episode- wait, I mean book- and they're just the same demon-killing machines as usual. Edgar Allen Poe is going to come back from the dead. Dean is forced to listen to terrible music so he can try to get the girl. Sam never stops researching. Yeah, that's how it goes thoughts: This is a TV-show turned book series, something I've never heard of until now. I'm desperatly in love with the show and my friend thought it would be interesting to read th [...]

    24. Note: I read this when I actually watched and enjoyed Supernatural, 5 years ago.Unfortunately, reading this just didn't have the same feel as watching the show. It's a little tiring, with extra details that don't really enhance it – the opposite of shows adapted from books – and a little cheesy. It was still a fairly entertaining read, I liked the Poe plot idea, as a fan of his. It was something I'd have liked to see on the show.The writing is quite clumsy and cliché. It's not terrible, but [...]

    25. YesI read a book based on a TV series. It wasn't bad. It wasn't great either, but it wasn't bad. My daughter loves the Supernatural series, turns out my wife did to. I'm now watching the DVDs.I'll probably read the other books given time (okay, so I'm a nerdor possibly a geek, I'm never sure of the difference). I "sort-of" like the series (don't get your theology from it or anything), and I sort-of like the books. Brain candy for sure, but still fun.This one follows the story of Sam and Dean as [...]

    26. I didn't really expect this TV tie-in to be better than fan fiction and it wasn't. Usually fans have a better understanding of the characters. This author really had no idea, unfortunately. He wrote them on a surface level and put them in New York of all places. If he really paid attention to the first season and a half before writing this, he would have realized that they don't do big cities.I've heard the rest of the tie-in series is hit and miss with the different authors and all, and I own e [...]

    27. Me encanta la serie Supernatural así que decidí leer este libro, con ganas de saber cómo lo contarían. Nos situamos en la segunda temporada, así que supone un retroceso y está bien recordar cómo eran los chicos por aquel entonces, antes de que el Apocalipsis sucediera, etc. Poder conocer los pensamientos de Sam y Dean es de lo mejor que tiene, pero la verdad es que se me hizo un poco lenta y falta de acción, comparada con como suelen ser los capítulos. Sin embargo, no descarto leer alg [...]

    28. The book takes forever to take off and the two cases in it were not so great. Sam and Dean's personalities were faithful to the show though and that was cool. But I did find this book boring for the most part. I'm still not giving up on Supernatural books though. I want to read "Witch's Canyon" too as it is from a different author. Maybe it'll be more exciting.
