Another typical Laymon horror novel with lots of blood, sex, and gore. I have read several Laymon novels and I would say this one probably ranks somewhere in the middle of the ones I have read (I enjoyed "The Stake" probably the most). It falls into Laymon's killer slasher books and is similar to "Come Out Tonight" and "Island." To me the biggest flaw, however, was that Albert's motivations are never really explained. This book is definitely not for the squeamish!
wow! this was my first book by this author and i can't wait to read more by him.
the book begins in th 1970s. it follows al as he makes his way across country killing people. the book also follows a few teachers of an area high school. eventaully, al and the teachers meet up and there is an amazing fight. the endind of the book will leave you saying "wow". i just can't figure out why janet did what she did, or why lisa did what she did.
I love Richard Laymon's tales, if you are a fan you'll like this book I'm sure. This book has it all, murder, mayham, terror and no shortage of sex. I enoyed this almost....as much as Traveling Vampire Show and Island.
This book was a page turner, I read it in one day. I liked how the 2 seperate stoylines twisted and turned to become one. However this book is very graphic in parts, it is not for the squeamish.
Kirkus Reviews says it's great! Stephen King loves it! Publishers Weekly says it will leave readers shuddering! I AGREE!
Diden't care for this one.
Not for the squeamish! Not quite what I expected but another good Laymon story
