Lindsay

Post by lesler » 12 Dec 2018, 12:27

Did you like Lindsay as a character? Would you read a sequel 12 years from the time of the novel with Lindsay as the main character and what she's doing as a 24 year old? Why or why not?

Lindsey was an interesting character. I think it would be fun to read about her as an adult and see Bud keep his promise if she got married.

Lindsay is an intresting character in the book but William and Bud are my most favourite characters in the book.

Characters like Lindsay made this novel all round and interesting. I would still read another book in which he were the main character.

Lindsey is quite an interesting character. I like her but I wouldn't read an entire sequel based solely on her. She is basically a walking encyclopedia and knows a little about everything, and never forgets. Delving into her mind would probably leave me with a headache from the overflow of information. :lol2:

Kids always bring in a fresh perspective in any story. Not too complicated and add a touch of tension relief from the mystery thrill. It would be interesting to see how she grew up and how the story would go with her as a grown up.

I think a sequel about Lindsay would be interesting. The author has given her an amazing memory which could almost be seen as a superpower. I think the author could take this ability in many different directions. A novel about Lindsay would be great!

Lindsey gave some needed information but was ultimately a static character. I found her to be slightly annoying but the cop’s preoccupation with who she will eventually marry was odd. I wouldn’t want to read a book only about her.

Williams remains my favourite character, which makes it less-exciting to want to read about only Lindsay.

I liked the little girl and found her character very interesting. She played a big part in solving the mystery.

I liked Lindsey’s character because she kept the book interesting. However, I’m not sure that I would read a whole sequel based solely on her. If the sequel was about what all of the remaining characters were doing in 25 years I would definitely read the book.

Lindsay was an intriguing character loaded with so much knowledge. A sequel on Lindsay as the main character in her adulthood would make sense. I can't imagine how powerful she'd be. If the author develops her well, it would be an amazing story.

She was an interesting character, I would definitely read a book portraying her as an 24 year old adult.

Lindsay was an interesting character, a child with a photographic memory who the 'villain' had not counted on. She was just a means of providing a break in the story. I don't think she can make a good adult main character.
