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'
Great story, keeps you interested all the way through. If you like the Horror genre you will love Bentley Little!
This guy is way sick. Be ready for absolutly anything.
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.
The Burning was a pretty quick read for me. I didn't ejoy it as much as Bentley Little's other book "The Store".
Ann Van Helsing has been cursed with a deep psychic ability that renders her insane in the eyrs of all who know her. with a simple touch, she is privy to another's history, thoughts and every desire- a power Ann finds overwhelming. then while searching the near by woods for the ever-elllusive peace, she finds darkllllly mysterios man who will forever change her life.

Yet their battle has just begun,as an unseen evil will force them to choose between what they love... and what they fear most.
long winded & so boring......
Excellent book, classic Bentley Little!

"LITTLE POSSESSES THE UNCANNY ABILITY TO TAKE EVERYDAY SITUATIONS AND TURN THEM INTO NIGHTMARES."
A pretty cool ghost story.
I love Little's writing,very creative!
Bentley Little is a good horror writer with as good of an imagination as Stephen King. Definitley worth the time to read. The book is in goog condition. Only read once by myself.
Stephen King calls him "A master of the Macabre."
STEPHEN KING quote about the Author "Amaster of the macabre" Touching a part of American History in a way you have not seen.
