Pretty much stock Bentley Little - a few scary surprises but overall not a great horror book.

A good book, but in my opinion not as good as Little's books usually are. Still, I would recommend it.

This wasn't Little's best work. It was strange and interesting, but not a must-read.

Well written, the characters, while they didn't all interact, came together well. It was a little shallow in some areas, but not enough to bore you to tears.

The back of the book doesn't go in depth on the story line, it is one of those "Bad summary, AWESOME book!" scenarios. I love the story, it is a supernatural thriller...and I DO mean thriller...I would read Stephen King until Midnight but not this one...

Another excellent Bentley Little.If you don't know his works?GET ON IT!!You needn't miss another second, just check out this book..A very uniques plot line keeps you reading on...not as gory as many of his books, it does give new light to a part of USA history that few know (or care) about..

Wow! You never know what you'll get with Bentley Little!

This book is very graphic in describing some of the 'events' and might be offensive but yet---it is considered 'horror'

This was a good book, it was kind of slow in a few spots but picked right back up again pretty quickly. This is not a book you want to read at night when you are out in the woods alone far from civilization...

Bentley Little is a master of macabre horror! However, this story was like another he's written. I'm hoping that not all of his writings fall under this particular formula: Seemingly random people have the same horror experiences in difference places. One giant force/monster/spirit culmulates and brings everyone together. Huge finale, lots of blood and gore, then... peace and calm. The Burning takes place around the building of the transcontinental railroad and racism.

This book was great! I haven't read a horror in a while that was not psychological. This is a supernatural horror.

I've found a new favorite author.
