I'd have given it a 10 but the ending was so abrupt. Otherwise it was top-notch Laymon. Thanks shadowwolff for the opportunity to read this:)

I just received this book from my horror trading buddy Jamie. Only 30 pages into the thing and the blood's already flowing....thanks Jamie!

Journal Entry 7 by bookfan23 from Salem, Virginia USA on Friday, October 31, 2003
What a deliciously nasty little treat! I loved this book because it was so quick to read and it was SO bloody. And - like most Laymon works - it didn't take itself too seriously. Pure entertainment - perfect for a dark and stormy night!

Conversations get a little confusing as to who was speaking and the story could have been explained a bit better but still an interesting read.


Journal Entry 10 by mellion108 from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan USA on Tuesday, December 16, 2003
Got this today! And finished it tonight! LOL

Not one of Laymon's best, but it is still a fun read. I kept feeling like I was watching a really cheesy horror film from the early 80s. And what is up with that ending? I kept checking to make sure I wasn't missing any pages or something.

This one will soon be on its way to Jaremeister. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing, shadowwolff.

(Paperback, 200)

From the back cover:

A standard well-fitted-out bathroom: tiles, towelling rugs on the floor, towels on heated rails, mirrored medicine cabinet above the basin, a laundry basket in one corner, and the usual litter of plastic bottles and aerosols.

Rubbing the fatigue out of his eyes, he lifted the toilet seat. And saw the water, pink-tinged, saw the head staring up at him with empty eye-sockets, the grey hair floating, shifting as though troubled by a slow current.

Retching and gagging, his hand clamped desperately over his mouth, he lurched across to the shower curtain, ripped it aside and doubled up over the bath. And saw the naked torso, the arms and legs severed and laid out neatly round it as though for some grotesque kit inspection...

Laymon in the mail is the sweetest thing I can find! Thanks for sending it on, mellion108 and thanks so much for starting this ray, shadowwolff!!!

Journal Entry 12 by wingjarewing from Port Richey, Florida USA on Wednesday, September 28, 2005
Wow! This was so fast-paced, I dared not blink. Very much a Laymon novel, that's for sure. I've read so much about how many in this journal entry and other reviews hated the ending.. I do agree that it was very abrupt, but I actually enjoyed it. Combine the abrupt ending with the fast pace and action of the book, it's kind of like a train wreck... greusome, harsh, and over in a flash!

SPOILER space, drag your mouse across below to read spoilers!

Sam ending up with Melodie at the end did kind of piss me off, but then again, I wasn't really surprised. I was sad that Cynthia got it though. Eric making the choice he made was very typical of a Laymon teen (think of the kid in Endless Night, after all), no surprises their either.

This will be available for bookring soon...
