Not when you get to my age!
Pleaze, yer a kid. Or photograph well! Which is really, the same thing. I only had four hrs sleep last nite, unless you count in how many times I hit the snooze. Which was a lot! And I worked 2 jobs & am still awake, and fairly energetic. And I had nightmares! Maybe nightmares don't affect quality of sleep. I don't know. It's still REM. Well I'm up 19 hrs awake. And I'm drinking a Stoli & ginger ale and am about to eat a popsicle!

i know this thread is old but i just wanted to add that i thought this book was quite scary and i did get a little spooked at night after reading it. But i had to remind myself vampires arent real...or are they..hehe

Side note i do agree pet cemetery had me on edge as well. I haven't read it since i was a kid, I think its time for a reread. :)
Warning:NOT the best but the scariest. In fact i think that the main characters are rather underdeveloped. But contrary to other books, in this the focus is on the supernatural and not on creating convincing characters. With that said, i think the idea of a family member becoming a vampire is one of the scariest things i can imagine. Surely Barlow is very scary himself but the most heart breaking scenes are those when dead family members come back to life and go and bite their relatives

I've found this to be one of the best of his early books.
