    " Read this when I was 8 years old. The end result....it was not until I was 15 years old that I could shovel snow in the dark hours when I lived in Michigan as a child. The Thing did nothing to ease that of course. "

    " I enjoy scary stories, and this was a good sci-fi/scary story (more sci-fi, really). It was really short, and you got a real sense of the isolation and cold of Antarctica. This was different from the movie in a way I wasn't expecting. This was a good, quick read. "

    " Okay, always loved the 1951 Howard Hawks-influenced (I believe) movie with James Arness. Great example of overlapping dialogue, funny in the face of fear ("What if he can read our minds?" "He's gonna be pretty mad when he gets to me.") Something like that. Yes, I also loved the John Carpenter remake in 1983 (?), one of the last sci-fi movies to create real special effects-not computerized! It was one of the last movies to play at the Coliseum (now Banana Republic) in downtown Seattle--yes, I decided to smoke some dope and watch it by myself--except it was babysitting night with a lot of young teenagers with their very younger siblings. A lot of the little kids were really freaked out when the dog split in two!! Haha, my legs were aching from pushing myself away from the screen. Don't get loaded and watch weird movies! Even liked that "prequel" that came out last year. So I downloaded this version on Audible--an amazing concept for the time when it was written. "

    " This collection of stories by John W. Campbell makes a great introduction to his writing. "
