4.0 out of 5 stars An amazing novel set in a small English seaside town.,
By A Customer
For a debut novel this book is amazing. The author has captured all that is fearful and turned the lives of 4 children upside down with a whirlwind of events. First there is the apperance of a spiritual being with powers of evil, and as we read through the book (which reads like a King novel [IT]) we are taken to another dimention, one of goals and mosters. Read it to believe it!

5.0 out of 5 stars a toady that hits the hole,
This was Marks debut and is without doubt a classic.im a similar age so can identify with the period and the teenage angst of the novel.i wont go thru what has already been reviewed but this is up there with the best of em.I will comment on The Land of Nod sequence is it has had some negatives.i personally think it is amazing.remember these two lads are in a coma in this part.Its like The Wizare of Oz on acid"put em f..... Up!!!"After this go on and read Marks Stitch the sublime The Immaculate the amazing Mr.Bad Face and incredible Longbarrow.You wont be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're thinking about it...GO FOR IT!,
As usual Morris manages to set the story in a world I recognise, teenage kids, the fear of bullying, friends and their parents...throw in plenty of fear and horror and your emotions won't let you put the book down. Great characters you just have to keep reading to find out what happens to them.
I'd have given it five stars if it weren't for 'The Land of Nod' which although I can see was nessecary for the ending, rambled on too much and made me want to skip pages.
HOWEVER - don't let that put you off as it's only a small part of a story well worth a read!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Good read,
This review is from: Toady (Hardcover)
Fantastic horror story, for the first 500 pages, after that I nearly didnt finish reading it as it became somewhat tedious and random with the inclusion of the "parralel world"
Like the reviewer before it would have got five stars had it not been for this. The ending though is really good, recommended wholeheartedly for horror fans and those who fancy something a little bit different!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now Available in Less-Expensive Edition,
This paperback binding edition here, is no longer available.
Now, head over to the Hardback Edition (Printed Paper Case, actually) and buy the same internals for less money with a harder cover! Yes, nothing's change in the new version; the PPC hardback has the same number of pages with the same new introduction and bonus short story in the back!
Plus, Mark Morris' second novel -- STITCH -- is available in the same PPC binding and also has a new introduction and a bonus short story: "Warts and All"! PLUS! an interview done just prior to Stitch's release, and a review of Stitch written at the time by Pete Crowther!
Humdrumming: the publishers who love you...
