Evil Omen — After her husband died, Athena Monroe often wondered why she stayed in the dilapidated old farmhouse, buried deep in the harsh, blighted New Jersey pine barrens.

A big disappointment. This Author started the book out with a bang and then got bogged down in details about the Jersey Pines and character developement of people called Pineys. It made for a boring read which I did not finish. I am sure the ending was exciting because when he felt like it, Mr. Dunbar can write scary good but in my opinion he did not feel like it enough!

This book was so boring I could barely finish it. I forced myself to, in hopes of a decent ending, but it's so slow and there's nothing even remotely scary about it. Waste of time.

One of my favorite horror books of all time. I keep a copy & re-read it at least once a year. If you've ever been to the Jersey Pine Barrens, you'll see that the author describes them perfectly (with exception to the inbred hillbilly-like pineys) & makes you feel you are actually there. For horror lovers, author does not waste time in grabbing your attention - murders, torture, mutilations & the Jersey Devil. Also be warned there are a few sexually explicit scenes. If you like Edward Lee or Richard Layman, you'll really like this one.
