Not Newman at his best,
By A Customer
This review is from: Jago (Paperback)
If you are a fan of Kim Newman (or Jack Yeovil, whatever), as I am, you will probably think about this book that it is not quite what you expected. The pace of the story is a wee bit too slow and speeds up only on the last two hundred pages. All the things you really want to know stay in the dark, and instead you get to know things about the characters that are not at all interesting. A rather crude mixture of christian myths and conventional horror effects make it difficult to sympathise with them. Still, Newman's style is great, all the allusions to contemporary culture are great, and the imagination is overflowing, and the jokes are... well, decide for yourself...
