HASH(0xa27f751c) out of 5 stars Pretty good, try it...Creepy scary. 24 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
I collect horror novels and this particular author is one of the finest. Mr. Tessier's not had as successful career as many other better known hack writers (King,Laymon,Koontz) he's had bad publishers, shoddy packaging, absolutly no promotion. "Phantom" is not his strongest work but it's definately not boring either, it's also a very short scary book and he doesn't bog you down with an excessive labrynthine plot, he's a very visual thinking person's writer of psychological horror who gets right to the point. Give him a try I certainly didn't regret it, I own everything he's ever written and when I get discouraged with the hacks I'll pick up one of Tessier's and reread it.
Brief Synopsis from the back cover since one wasn't provided above; Ten-year-old Ned Covington is afraid. There are monsters in his room. His friends think he's imagining them. But he knows they're real. The grown-ups say they will go away in the daylight. But it's daytime now. And they're coming after him... Gripping, compelling, recreating the nightmares you KNEW were real when you were a child, PHANTOM is the story of what happens when the lights come on... and the horror doesn't go away.

HASH(0xa3b8b864) out of 5 stars Not very good =( 28 May 2014
By Corkasaurus - Published on
Phantom was a huge disappointment to me. It was so slow in the build up (despite being a small book) that it was over before it had a chance to have any deep fearful points in it. I almost thought at the end it was going to pull off a huge comeback as there is a point where it felt like it really had potential for a ground breaking finish that would be as good as any horror movie ending, yet it fizzled out and ended with out much at all. It was much like when you pop open champagne and it doesn't make that pop sound. It just ended. Hopefully, because this was an earlier book by Thomas Tessier, that he got better from here. either way, this will be the last book I will read of his. It was too much of a miss to try again.

HASH(0xa27fe018) out of 5 stars Not Tessier's Finest 7 Sept. 2006
By N. Faustman - Published on
Tessier is indeed a fine writer--a breath of fresh air in fact, when compared to other "hardcore" horror-trash writers out there today--but he's not always the best story teller. Phantom isn't his best. In fact, I struggled to keep myself interested and forced myself to finish. There was a flicker of pure gold, late in the story; I am glad I continued reading.
