I really don't blame you.
James Herbert was the real 'Shock Jock' of the 70's. The Rats; The Lair; The Spear;The Fog- they're all classics. Mark.
I agree, brilliant artwork; captures the 'spirit' of the book. mark.
And the depicted Tower gets closer on each book as you go from volume 1 to the next one.
Finished Mr Mercedes yesterday and just cracked carrion comfort, which looks like is gonna be a haul..
Just now read the last page of Mr. Mercedes. What a ride! What......a......ride! To paraphrase a certain someone in Creepshow II: 'Thanks for the ride, Stevey! Thanks for the ride!!!'
Try The Ghost of Sleath, Moon, Ash etc. He passed away at 69 years last year leaving a wife and 3 lovely daughters. thanks for the scary nights Jim. If you want to read more about him read his (auto) biography forgive me i get me up between them two. Devil in the dark Craig Campbell. It will give you more of an insight into him . He was brought up in the East end of London and his parents refused to answer the door when the baliff came. read, you will enjoy
This is the only book by Peter Straub I have read, and i read it twice. They made it inot a movie with Fred Astaire(his last role) in the movie. enjoy
i have Mr mercedes, Jane Russell, errol flynn Robert Harris. I can't order any more books out of the library my limit is full. I dont know where to start. If i like, had a brain, one at a time.
Nearly finished Mr. Mercedes. My Kobo says I have read 80%, so hope to finish today. So far I am hooked. It's very hard to put down.
i have got the book by Dan Simmons - abominable from the library and started reading it. I just cannot affored to buy every book i want.
Contagion ended better than it began. now I'm at loose ends-next book I want isn't in at the library yet. I have a chick lit to read for review (The Major's Daughter), so maybe }'ll hit that one today. Oh, I read a Doctor Who/STNG crossover graphic novel yesterday, too--pretty interesting! It worked better than I'd anticipated.
Just finished Mr. Mercedes-now back to my last few hundred pages of The Stand reread. Need to finish rereading Night Shift too-but that one was giving me serious nightmares! Think I'll read Girl With The Dragon Tattoo while deciding what's next. Got it at the thrift store for 50 cents. Haven't seen the movie yet either.
Currently, Goliath by Scott Westerfeld, The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, and of course, Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King.
Good to see you Elijah Sattler
Let us know what you think of the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo! Seems the SKMB is split about 50/50 on those books- I, for one, LOVED them!
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Major's Daughter turned out to be not so bad. WWII historical, based in a little-known German POW camp in New Hampshire. I was pleasantly surprised! Now I'm at loose ends again-lol
I think I might start Misery, I've put it off for quite a while - I just hope I like it, I have just read a few shorts from everythings eventual, but the last novel I tried was the regulators and I put it back about halfway through. I don't want to dislike 2 in a row.
I think you will like Misery. (I've also put The Regulators aside ( ) for now, I think I had too many distractions.)
I'm still reading Mr. Mercedes and one by Brent Weeks, can't recall the title now, but my kid is getting annoyed with me because he wants me to read it faster so we can discuss the series.
