THE TOWN has some of Little's best characters to date: Russian immigrants living in the SouthWest US. Their sub-society is well-portrayed; if he did not know the workings of this group beforehand, he reasearched them well. The feeling of menace is strong from the first scenes onward, at the book's peak, it is almost overpowering. An excellent read! Well worth the price of admission!

I can honestly say that this book will appeal to non horror fans as much as to them. It recounts a story that most of us have probably heard somewhere along the way in some shape or form.
The story evolves around a family moving back to the small village that the parents grew up in hoping to recapture small town life but instead coming across evil in its barest form.
Very well written with a story that keeps those pages turning.
I would place Bentley in the middle tier of 'horror' writers at this point in time, but more stories like this with a little more originality could escalate him into the company of your Koontz's, King's and Piccirilli's.

I'd never read anything by Bentley Little before, and to be honest I really wasn't expecting too much out of this book and as I progressed through the beginning I decided that this really isn't what I'd call a 'good book'. However neither is it what I would call a 'bad book' it sat somewhere in the middle in that, often ignored, grey area of average.
The Town (or Guests depending on the nationality of the release) is about a lottery winner returning to his home town in Arizona in order to provide his children with a better environment to grow up in. That's the outside excuse the motives seem to be more to do with the parents being bored after quitting their jobs.
Almost the moment they get to town strange things start to happen and things go on from there.
Like I said this is an average read. Parts are darn exciting but a lot of it is a little too stretched and a little slow and other parts don't really make much logical sense. However that doesn't fail this novel at all and the ending in particular is a rampant and exciting journey. Although I found some parts to be rushed through and felt other parts dragged on too long.
I did enjoy this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to start with Bentley Little, or just looking for something different
