The Vesuvius Club: A Lucifer Box Novel (Lucifer Bo&hellip by Mark Gatiss

Why was I expecting this to be funny? Well, mainly because the other reviews hinted that it would be. But I found the whole thing an annoying mix of cliche and fairly lame attempts to shock. "Boring" would be a good summary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold as Ice, 26 Feb 2007
This is basically a "who and why-dunnit" in space. The characters are well drawn, and there are loads of "oh yeah, that's why that bit happened earlier!" moments, which I really like. With such a good book, it's a pity he cover art is so gash - it reminds me of the stuff I used to read in the late 70s/early 80s. OK, so I'm a SF geek, but I don't necessarily want to let on in public.

(Not quite as embarrassing on the tube as the Carlton Mellick III book I'm reading at the minute, mind)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the daddy, 28 July 2006
Simply the best SF-horror novel ever written. Matheson, better than anyone else, manages to convey the notion that no matter what horror can be experienced, there's always something worse that can be imagined
