What an excellent book, I read this in one day!
Not bad although I prefer a bit more horror and scary stuff. I like the concept.
This book scared me to death. Very good read!!!
Another fun, creepy thriller from John Saul -- really quick read!
What can i say about John Saul hes awesome
this book lives up to his standard.
This is better then his previous ones, I was starting to be disappointed...
This was a good book.. kept me turning the pages, however, it had much more potential.... overall a good book by Saul, but not his best one.
It waited 7 years fo someone to come back to the rambling lakeside house called Pinecrest, which has stoodempty since its owner went missing. for Dan and Merrill, the place is a ideal retreat, for their kids ,eric and Marci, a place to explore during the lazy summer. Which is how Eric and his teenage friends discover the curios cache of discarder objects stowed in a hidden room of Pinecrest'scarriage house. the bladeless hacksaws,shadeless lamps, tables with missing legs,headless axe handle,and other unremarkable items add up to junk.Yet someone took the trouble to inventory each worthless relic in a cryptic ledger. It has all the makings of a great mystery- whispering, coaxing, demanding to be solved.....
I did enjoy the read, satisfying ending, but it didn't hit the mark for me as others of his that I really enjoyed better, like Manhattan Hunt Club.
I have all sauls books this one is one of my favorites also this book is signed by john saul .Its a great read a real page turner !
I definitely have mixed emotions about this one. Not what I consider a good read, but not one to just set aside either. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd probably rate it about a 3.
Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a weenie when it comes to scary books or movies and this book was plenty scary for me. It got so bad that I had to skip right to the end to make sure that everyone that I liked made it through alright. I pro'ly won't be reading anymore of his books:)
The first John Saul book I ever read, and I was hooked. This is scary, and you just can't stop turning the pages!
Good book from an author that can keep the reader guessing.
This is a book that was hard to put down. I read most of it in one night. Good thriller!
Standard John Saul. Nothing spectacular, but this book was ok.
For Chicago couple Dan and Merrill Brewster, a summer at pinecrest, a rambling lakeside house, is an ideal vacation, and for their kids, Eric and Marci, Pinecrest is the perfect place to spend some time exploring. Eric and his friends descover a curious cache of objects stowed in a hidden room, but the boy's strange fascination with the forgotten possessions soon becomes an obsession. When a horrifying discovery surfaces, so does the chilling truth about the terrifying events that rocked the town seven years before, the mysterious disappearance of Pinecrest's previous resident, and a twisted legacy with a malevolent life of its own...and a bottomless hunger for new victims.
An undiniably creepy horror chiller...John Saul knows how to send shivers up the spine of readers.
This was a really good book, it keeps you guessing.
My sister insisted that I read this book. She claimed that it is "sooooo good". While it was good, it wasn't his best. Sort of mediocre.
Another great John Saul book.
This is your typical John Saul book - spooky house in a small town, undisclosed secrets, etc.
It's okay - not really all that riveting - good way to pass the time.
this is book is in large print
