    1. A teen favorite of mine A non scary ghost story Integrates music into everyday life, i.e someone snores in A minor, radiators have their own tunes

    2. Sam is a talented composer, but he s not a very good pianist As luck would have it, his brother Humphrey is a piano prodigy, and he gets all the attention in their family However, people appear to be less interested in Humphrey now that he s in his mid teens and no longer a cute child prodigy, so their mother cracks a scheme to get the audiences coming back She will make Sam compose new pieces in the style of a long dead composer and have Humphrey perform them, billing them as found works being [...]

    3. The book Fingers is an amazing thrill ride of the supernatural that will keep you flipping pages until the strange and unexpected end.Sam s brother Humphrey is fifteen and the once famous child prodigy pianist is no longer able to get to get any concerts It was cute when he was six and tottered out on stage and banged on the piano But now the plump, hairy, tall pianist is not so cute So his mother, Bridget, devises a scheme to recapture his fame Sam will write new pieces of music Humphrey will p [...]

    4. William Sleator s work was recently recommended to me by Richard Gavin, and I m very happy it was I really enjoyed this book, and I m looking forward to checking out some of Sleator s other works.This one did a great job of introducing a supernatural mystery and not really overexplaining it, of making everything at once grotesque and still enjoyable, of filling the book with characters who were mostly awful people without it ever being unpleasant to read, and of keeping things creepy without eve [...]

    5. I first read this book sometime in high school and I really enjoyed it then and probably would have given it 5 5 stars Reading it again, I didn t enjoyed as much thus the 4 5 rating I thought I d remember most of the story but I didn t and that was okay because I felt like I was reading it for the first time again This book appears well versed when using musical terms and might make sense to people that have a bigger understanding of such things This is expected because the author is a part tim [...]

    6. Fingers by William Sleator is very enjoyable book to read because the story has been supported with powerful and intelligent sentences.It flows easily for the most part of the book.I loved the details that William Sleator used in this book.The book Fingers is an amazing thrill ride of the supernatural that will keep you flipping pages until the strange and unexpected end.I m looking forward to checking out some of William Sleator s novels.Sam is the main character of Fingers.He is 18 years old a [...]

    7. William Sleator is one of my favorite authors, or probably like my favorite author This was a good book, even though he usually writes insane sci fi I finished it in like two days Crazy I love it when authors write about music Turns out he s a rehearsal pianist for some ballet, so that s how he knows all that great stuff.The pianist that supposedly possesses this guy s hands is Hungarian, his name is Laszlo Magyar Magyar is like the Hungarian language He s not a real pianist, but I think Sleato [...]

    8. All of William Sleator s books are good science fiction for young people, even though most of them take overdone subjects for yet another ride Sleator somehow does it differently and in a character oriented fashion.This one dealt with sort of a ghost possession plot two brothers are talented in music, but one got the talent of being able to play piano really well and one got the talent of being able to compose it What s all that got to do with a dead composer who s influencing them OoooOOO, spo [...]

    9. Sam, the main character, sounds petty and annoying But I forgive him because he s eighteen and it s not his fault he sounds petty and annoying I m not exactly attached to any of the other characters either, but I m giving this book three stars because it s well written The whole concept is a bit weird to me and the ending seems a bit sketchy, but I can imagine a younger me enjoying the book like no other.

    10. Oh, my God Everything every paragraph, every sound, every musical note and every touch The power of description in this book is absolutely phenomenal Every single detail put into it is the exact balance between creepy and beautiful, sometimes edging to one side and sometimes to the other but keeping the balance Lovely.

    11. A solid ghost story that slacks a little on the mood an focuses on the telling I was, however, stupefied ny the quality of the writing It wa an extremely literary book, and well worth the time Always amazed at how much interesting and better constructed teen books are.

    12. William Sleator was one of my childhood favorites, and this was one of my favorite books of his, creepy and smart His books are shelved as young adult, but in my opinion they stand up to adult re reads.

    13. I remember being really creeped out by this book as a child young adult As an actual adult, I found it interesting but not as compelling.

    14. Re read Not my favourite of the Sleator books, because everyone is so nasty all the time, but enjoyable.

    15. it s an amazing plot, but it also is a simple story, I loved the music in it, I wish I could hear them too I also has a bunch of family values throughout the story that makes it an excellent book
