This book was waiting in Oklahoma for me when I arrived. It is always fun to get books in the mail. Thank you so much for brightening my day. I look forward to reading this book and many others during my stay here.

From the back cover:

Something is happening to the children of Eastbury, Massachusetts. Something that causes healthy babies to turn cold in their cribs. Something that strikes at the heart of every parent's darkest fears.

Something is taking the children, one by one.

Now, an entire town waits on the edge of panic for the next nightmare. There must be a reason for the terror. They all know it. But no one ever suspected

As I read this book I seemed to remember a few parts of it. And as I got farther in the book I was even more sure that I had read this book before. This would have been one of the very first books by this author that I read all those many years ago.

I still found the book to be chilling and disturbing that 20 years ago they had the thought and technology to change genes and DNA along with elaborate computer systems to track the results. with the technology that is around today who knowswhat could be done and what is being done.

I hope that the world doesn't come to one where children are used a guinea pigs and where humans become something that is not quite so human anymore.

This book is a ...

“Ray it Forward”!

Let me try and explain what a “Ray It Forward” is. More or less it is the lazy way for me to set up a common BookRay. Ordinarily a BookRay has a list of participants and it gets mailed down the line to the last person who does whatever they wish with the book. Well, I have no desire to maintain a list so this is what I figure. I’ll find the first person that wants this book and send it to them. I just ask that they pass the book along “BookRay” fashion when they are done with it.

If you are in possession of this book then please look for another BookCrosser to pass it to. Check the wish lists, the forums, a yahoo group, the BookRelay, or offer it at a meeting …whatever way you choose to pass it on is up to you. If it seems that no other BookCrossers want it then send it along its way as a wild release but this should be a last resort.

What are the advantages of Ray it Forward?

Time frame – I ask that you pass the book along in a couple months or so but because there is not a “waiting list” the time is a little more relaxed than a standard BookRay.

Shipping Preferences – Choose your own. If you need to post within your own country then do so. If you choose to send international that is great too. If postal costs are a problem right now then hand it to another BookCrosser at a meeting, release to an OBCZ, ask for postage from the receiver or find some other way to get the book in the hands of another BookCrosser.

***Please note that it would be polite to let the next person know that this is a Ray It Forward book before you pass it along to them so that they will know that they will be expected to pass it on in a couple months.

Less Stress – Please do your best to keep this book moving but I am going to try my hardest not to worry about it anymore as I send it into the world to be enjoyed by as many as is its fate.

Have a great BookCrossing Day!

OK I messed up this Ray It Forward a little. I didn't realize that BellaMack and VVilliam were asking for the same book and some PMs got lost in the big black hole and I ended up promising this book to both. Since VVilliam is in the US I am sending to him first and he has generously agreed to send it on to BellaMack when finished so that BellaMack can continue the Ray It Forward in Australia. Whew! I am so glad that is sorted out now. I was starting to feel really bad that my attempts to be organized weren't working so well. I am just glad that I was able to try and make everyone happy.

This book was mailed 20 Oct 2006.

Got this book in the mail today, and I'll start reading it on the Metro tomorrow morning. Thanks crrcookie!

Journal Entry 9 by VVilliam from Alexandria, Virginia USA on Sunday, November 5, 2006
This book may have been much more chilling when it was written, but now it feels like an already overdone concept. Strangely, this book is much more about families dealing with loss than about horror, and most of the plot twists are seen well in advance. Saul also has a pretty simple, but well-written, style that is perfect for no-brainer reads. I think he could have done much better, though, and the Epilogue would have been a great basis for a novel. A short summary in the back of the book puts it well as "John Saul has produced a mind-numbing tale of evil unchecked."

Reserving for Book Relay

Journal Entry 13 by BellaMack from St Helens, Tasmania Australia on Wednesday, July 18, 2007
I read this book to the end although I found it very predictable and in some places very average. VVilliam summed it up very nicely in his comments particularly in respect to the summary at the end of the book.
