    " This was a wild ride. I wish he would have taken the time to spread it out over several volumes. A lot going on in this book. Loved it though "

    " read it in one of the collection books. had to rate it seperately as it's a different story. the other story was amara and to me the lake is a far better one. i really got into who all the characters were and all their lil pet peeves, regrets over the years and general personalities. richard laymon does what he does best here. he draws you in, entrances you and shocks you a way most horror writers dont. he doesnt do it in every book so is by no means consistent, but this is one of his natural page-turners! "

    " Did not like this one at all. Too much of it went unexplained or left a big fat plothole. Also, the two female leads were completely unlikeable and I was hoping one or both would get killed off. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendi | 1/24/2014

    " After being told time and again that Richard Laymon is one of the best horror writers ever, I decided to give him a try. This book seemed to scramble to finding an ending, and the ending it did find seemed forced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Timothy | 1/19/2014

    " The worst Richard Laymon book I've read so far. He usually has some pretty ridiculous things going on but this one went too far with predictable coincidences, characters falling in love ridiculously fast, and a couple rather strange characters thrown in who really have no importance to the story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 11811 (Eleven) | 1/1/2014

    " Published postmortem, I'd be surprised if Laymon actually wrote this. If he did write it, I don't want to know about it. It would destroy my image of him. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nancy | 1/1/2014

    " I have really enjoyed other books by Richard Laymon. This one was quite a disappointment. It didn't flow well. Certain aspects of the story line didn't seem to have any purpose. I don't recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grant Murray | 11/21/2013

    " Since the book was released long after his death, it's hard to call this a return to form exactly, but it really did offer the best that Laymon has to offer in his man vs. man vs. nature series (that includes The Woods Are Dark, The Wilds, Darkness, Tell Us, and so on). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Greer | 5/13/2013

    " What's all the fuss about? Not really scary. Reads more like 'scream' in print. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 DJMikeG | 2/24/2013

    " Instantly forgettable book by a sometimes great author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Taryn | 2/16/2013

    " Truly awful, had to stop reading it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 2/14/2013

    " A pretty good page turner, although not his best work. I was entertained and wanted to find out what happened to the characters, but this book is kind of like eating potato chips--you keep munching on, but at the bottom of the bag--you don't say, 'man that was the best bagochips I've ever had'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonya Higgd | 1/15/2013

    " I liked this. Not the usual outing no supernatural monsters only human ones "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 10/15/2012

    " The book seemed all over the place for awhile and at times was confusing. Took about half way before I really got into it and didn't want to put it down. Good story though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 8/24/2012

    " very suspenseful - someone died within the first few pages & it keeps getting better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn Leitheuser | 1/20/2012

    " Was a good story, but I found myself more interested in the past story than the one currently happening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaymeister | 1/10/2012

    " One of my favourite Laymon stories. Reads like a Mills & Boon gone bad :-) "

    " This is one of my favorite Laymon book, it was my first so it will always hold a special place in my heart, but what I really like about it is that it is not as horrorish as the rest of this books. Some of this others just disgust me, but not this one it's just a good read. "
