From a die hard SH fan - disappointing, again...., 17 Nov. 2010
I started reading, and enjoying Shaun Hutson's books right from the unforgettable "Slugs", through the superb "Sean Doyle" novels, and upto five or six years ago, could really recommend his books - especially if your enjoyed readable, horror-thrillers !
Every year (until 2010) I would eagerly anticipate the August/September release of his one and only new book every year. In 2010, for the first year ever, I didn't buy on the release date. I chose to buy from Apple's BookStore in e-format, so I could read it on my iPad.
Sadly, my fears were confirmed - disappointing to say the least, very strung-out story, as another reviewer said, "should have been a short story, not a full novel".
I have to say, for the first time ever, the only SH novel that I could quite easily put down before reaching the end.
Don't know how much he got paid for it, but wish my 10.99 had stayed in my pocket.
Let's hope 2011's effort will be back to his old winning style....
