Book Review of Carrion Comfort

Carrion Comfort
dragoneyes avatar reviewed on + 769 more book reviews

I looked forward to reading this book after reading Simmons' book The Song of Kali. With both books Simmons seems to make the terror from something that could be real. For me, those types of books disturb me to the point that it keeps me up late at night and has me thinking about it months later. I love it! In Song of Kali, it did just that but for Carrion Comfort, I'm afraid it fell short. I think this could've been a great story but unfortunately, it was way too long. I don't mind a thick book but I want meat and potatoes in there not just fluffy filler. I found my mind wandering quite often while reading. It just did not hold my attention throughout a good portion. There were some really good parts, some awesome characters and a cool twist on the "vampire" but the long stretches throughout kind of ruined it for me
