A young couple buys a home in a gated community. From the first day, things go wrong... just a few months later, it ALL goes wrong. Very creepy, those C. C. & R.'s!!! I read this in two days. It scared me the same way "Pacific Heights" scared me as an apartment dweller!

This was the first Bently Little book I read. It captured me where I couldn't put it down and created emotions I didn't even know I had. It's unbelievable how anyone could even write such horrific events.

Having worked for a homeowners assn management company for 5 years and living in a HOA-run complex, this book really hit home with me. What Bentley writes about these "little Hitlers" (as I call them) is more true than anything I've ever read. Mr. Little must have either lived in one or heard about the horror stories of what goes on and just took it several steps farther. Excellent, excellent read and so far my favorite from Little.

Scary, addictive, and a great read. The story is over the top, but it is an examination of what may happen when a society becomes complacent and allows its freedoms to be eroded.

This book is not funny--it is a true horror story and grips you from the first and doesn't let go until you are finished--very hard to put down for a minute, the hardest part to get through is the ending--it is so ricidulous and unbelievable but yet you must finish it.

Bentley Little is like a "B" rated movie! I find his material hilarious. This book made me want to read more. Worth the time for a little laugh.
