"Excellent,Excellent!! Fantastic first book by this author that will leave you on the edge of your seat til the last page! The phone rang at a pivotal moment in the book and I jumped!! Eerie! Dont read in the dark!"
"took a bit to get into this one but when I did I couldnt put it down! The end of the world as we know it after world war II. Hitler sends bombs armed with the Blood Death. Only certain blood types live and the apocalypse has one hero who can save the day. Great fun to read, lots of action, doesnt slow once it gets going!!"
"I like this new book. Little different type of writing for Mr. Masterson. funny and still very good. Witches take over Los Angeles! I usually dont care for witch stories much but this one was worth it!!"
"I think he should stick to zombies. The plot was so redundant I gave up and didnt even read the last 30 pages because how many pages can you just fight off vampires with nothing happening?? zzzzzzzzzzzz"
"Cormac McCarthy's sage of a two young friends set out to Mexico for an adventure that leads them to love, prison, murder, and growing up. The poetry with which this man writes leaves awesome pictures of the countryside he loves as well as the horses. An true western."
"Ok I absolutely loved this book. It is one of the scariest books Ive ever read because this guy has all the tools to keep killing forever!! It will disgust you and make you laugh too at the shallowness which allows this killer to keep on killing! Really an indictment of American wall street society only I dont think it was just during the 80s he could get away with this, might still be one out there right now!! Disturbing read. Not for those who shy away from outright bloodbaths or explicit sexual scenes.How do some people think a monster would act anyway??"
"I read Mr. Carr because of the way he writes about New York in the early 20th centure. I feel I am there and his accuracy is due to the length of research which must go into his books! That said, I felt this was a worthwhile task for almost 800 pages! Wow! but He ties it all up in the end! Its just takes lots of reading to get there!!"
"I agree with the other reviewer that for such BiG concepts the book is awfully short. Its as if the author wrote this big outline and then didnt want to write enough to fill it all in. The ending is corny and rushed. A book that is filled with great ideas but short on character development. Relies too much on cliches and surprises that we expect. A mediocre effort at best."
"I enjoyed my first Michael Slade book. He is very gruesome but has obviously thoroughly researched the subject of this book:Cannabalism. He puts it in an entertaining plot which wanders around but comes back to the point in good time. A nice "fun" read."
"This is a great book, you will not be able to put it down til you finish it!! I read it in two days! A wonderful page turner about two men whose lives meet and then meet again at one is a paid killer, the other the US president with an obsession for the Book of Revelations. Will it mean the end of the world? AWESOME BOOK!!"
"this starts out with the characters from vigil transplanted to LA. They both become caught up in an arabs biblical book that has many secrets within! The problem I had with this book was that I wanted to hear more about the story line started in the first book but he chose to not go into that much which disapointed me."
"This one is the story of a history teacher who unearths a nasty secret about Amazons near the Black Sea. A Vietnam Vet and his family run into her in an amazingly pretty town. Then the horror starts as he learns that his family is being stalked by something. Nice twists and turns."
"Another great thriller form Strieber. This one, about an abducted child will make you squirm because it has been so much in the news lately about stranger abduction. But never fear, Billy is an unusual child, with a keen sense of what do to stay alive!! A real page turner!"
