Anyone here like his books?  Some of his I really liked and consider creepy, others just made me want to throw the book against the wall.  I think my favorites were The Association, The Mailman, and University.  I still have a few in my tbr pile to get to.

I've enjoyed all of the books I've read by him.  My favorites are:  The Store, The Resort and The Policy.  I have The Mailman, The Association, The Burning and Death Instinct on my shelf to read.  I'm also on the waiting list for The Vanishing.  :-)

I've have and have  read all of his except for  Evil Deeds (it's on my wishlist) and The Vanishing also WL'd, I went to buy it and can't get it, I have to order it from the publisher. I love Bentley Little. My favorite was The Store and my least favorite was The Ignored. But he's on  my keeper shelf!

I love his books, too! My favorites are The Association, The Store and The Mailman and The Collection.  I love how he can make the most everyday things horrifying. My least favorite was The Ignored, I found myself getting bored it with it from time to time, but it turned out okay.

I recently started reading Bentley Little and really like his stuff. So far, I've read The Store, The Town and The Mailman, and all have been VERY good. I am currently reading The Summoning. I agree with the above poster, Little makes the ordinary terrifying, especially The Mailman, a great book!

I've read every single book and snippet by him. I bought The Vanishing from B & N, read it in one night, posted it and sent it on it's way.

I guess my favorites were Death Instinct, The Association (which is the very first one I had every read and got me addicted), The Policy and The Store.

I agree, the Ignored was my least favorite.

I haven't read The Ignored, maybe I'll skip that one.  My least favorite was Dispatch.

I started reading him just in the last year or so, though I'm a horror fan since childhood.  The Resort scared me absolutely silly, and I've read The House and The Store and The Revelation, though none of them scared me as badly as The Resort did.  I will definitely read more by him, but first I have to wade through the four books on my kitchen table....one of them is a wish list book and I know the next person in line would like me to finish it.

Thanks for the heads up about The Mailman.  I love Bentley Little but somehow have missed that one.  Just added it to my wish list.

I read The Association and really liked it. Then I read The Burning and it was just okay. I wasn't going to try anymore but hearing about The Resort in this thread has changed my mind. I'm going to try to read it soon.

After reading this thread, I noticed The Resort at a garage sale and snapped it up.  I'll have to get to it sooner rather than later...

My least favorite was either Death Instinct or Dispatch as well. My favorite is the Summoning. That was the first one I read by him and my all time favorite.
