5.0 out of 5 stars If Lolita is the best, this is the second best..., 4 Feb. 2002
Nabokov wrote this book in two weeks. As a result the book is fast paced, as is the reading. I couldnt stop reading it until I was finished.
The author denies having read Kafka before writing this book. The fact is that the "strangeness" of the story is akin to Kafkas works. A man that finds himself in a starnge situation (in this case, convicted to death) without any aparent reason, surrounded by stranger characters. As for the end of the book, without giving it away, all I can say is that it is Amazingly puzling... Great book from a great author!

Books of Blood First Omnibus:Vol 1-3
by Clive Barker
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but effective stories, 15 Jan. 2002
Awesome imagination. Thats what this book is about. The stories keep you glued to the book, trough the night and beyond. I sometimes stoped in mid storie and asked myself how on earth did he remember such a thing. You could say that this goes in the line of Poe and Lovecraft, but I actualy believe it goes a bit further. There is actualy one story, "New murders in the rue morgue", that you could consider as a tribute to Poe. This is what i call horror stories ... the ones that will make you sleep with your lights on :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Allen at his best, 6 Jan. 2002
Looking at the cast for this movie, one cant help but wander who else could gather so many big actors for the same film. Allen plays a writer whos latest book depicts the lives of those close to him. As usual there are a lot of romantic mixups lots of weird situations and those comic moments that are woodys trademark. Higly recomended for any Woody Allen fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A view to a century of horror, 19 Dec. 2001
A great (and personal) view to several horror subjects or as the author describes it "An encyclopaedia dealing with the subject of horror".
The book covers movies, books, authors, paintings, music... Without going in to to much detail it covers a broad range of pieces. Some are: Exorcist, Alien, Texas chainsaw Massacre, Vincent Price movies, Friday the 13th, H.P. Lovecraft, the bible (yes its true... some quotations), Freddy Kruger, Dracula and much more.
Great reading... a must have for horror fans in general and for Barkers fans in particular.
