updated to the modern day without losing the overall feel of the original movie on which the story is based. Embellishes the plot without straying too far from the original screenplay.

I love Shaun Hutson novels and this is yet another that doesn't fail to impress. Read it cover to cover very quickly and really loved the suspense! X

Utter rubbish. Most ridiculous book Shaun has written. It just stops in it's tracks and leaves you thinking....that's it? You must be joking!

Not as good as I thought it would be - he has written much better books but this one was not one of my favourites unfortunately.

Not bad, but Mr Hutson can do alot better, even though it's a re-telling of a 50's film.

Part of the problem when you bring a book up to date from an earlier time is that the things that scared the viewer back then is something that can be quite tame by todays standard. Such is the case with this adaptation of the Hammer 1956 film X: The Unknown where radiation is the fear of the day.

Sadly by bringing it forward to today's setting a lot of what was assumed back then has sadly bitten the dust in not only theory but has been blasted into oblivion by fact. That alone took the book well out of the realms of believability which whilst you can suspend whilst watching the film sadly just niggles the reader.

Whilst Shaun's writing is a highlight for the publisher, as a reader I was sadly hoping for a lot more than was actually presented as this book felt flat not only in the subject matter but also with the characters within that weren't fleshed out enough for me to care for them as a reader. All in a great shame.
