Customer Review

on 4 September 2012
I bought this book after reading the cover and seeing that it was highly recommended by Stephen King.... later I found out it was the author's earlier book that was being described. This book holds a special joint place with 'The girl who loved Tom Gordan'. Both are the worst books that I have actually finished.

Ok, so the plot.... 2 American couples on vacation in Mexico team up with a German who wants to find his missing brother. A greek who speaks no English also joins them...... They travel to an archeological dig but miss the turning and end up in a Mayan village. Receiving no hospitality they then leave and find the right path. The Myans arrive and due to the language barrier are not able to prevent the group from entering onto a hill.... The Mayans will not let them cross back over the clearing and force them to remain at arrowpoint.

On the hill there appears to be vines which turn out to people killers....

Expect plants that have acid for sap, can imitate voices and sounds and move around.

I struggled to get through this book... it was very poorly written and just did not grip my attention in any sort of way. All the characters were two dimensional and alike, and really just plain annoying.

The authors first book seems to have gotten many good reviews, but this offering has stopped me reading anymore of his works. Pity he didn't take the idea and give it to Stephen King........
