Lol Okay I should have said no Twilight
I've always heard good things about Justin Cronin's books. Same with Salem's Lot.
My wife has read the first 3 Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles and said they were really good, not really scary.
She's also read all of the Sookie Stackhouse books and enjoyed those too.
I did not enjoy the passage lol
Same. I thought the first 250 pages were a great combination of Stephen King and Michael Crichton, then it takes a huge dive in quality when
it jumps ahead in time.
Almost exactly how I felt lol
If you just read The Passage’s first 250 pages and forget the rest of the trilogy exists it’s near perfect.
NOS4A2 is my “how does everyone else love this” of horror. Bafflingly bad book for me.
Read all 3 and loved all 3!
I remember being pretty disappointed in nos4a2 as well tbh
It's a masterpiece.
Yeah I was not a fan of N0S4A2. Some good ideas and execution here and there but nothing special
A Discovery of Witches
Dresden has some important vampire roles but not from their perspective
The Passage series is great, after the
time jump I still felt the I need to know the answer so continued.
Fevre Dreams is written by George R. R. Martin
The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro
Oh shit I forgot about Fevre Dream. That's definitely a favorite.
It's the first I go to if I'm ever in a vampiric mood!
In a different world GRRM kept writing horror fiction like that and Skin Trade and I can't say that world would be better but I sure would have liked to have seen it.
GRRM does like to branch out his workings. From ASOIAF and Nightflyers and Fevre Dream. Now he's doing a game from FromSoftware. He has a lot on his plate and we get it, its not WoW but its content. I like content
Interesting that you didn't enjoy it. I haven't read it but own it and am a big fan of Joe Hill because of his comics work. Only ever read a short story collection of his outside of comics.
Have you read The Fireman? I know that one seems to be great from what I hear.
I know recently the books you've posted about were all ones I've read.
Have you read Anthony Horowitz's new books?
A friend and I read it at the same time and we both struggled greatly to finish it. Halfway through it she was like “I just do not care” and I was like “oh thank God me either” but we both still finished it and our mutual hatred of it is now a recurring joke.
Tbh I disliked nos4a2 so much I kinda decided to not give anything else a try by him.
Thanks @ All
Shit, did not know he had a book (books?). Add that on to my list stretching off into the distance.
I haven’t! What would you recommend to read by him? I know Magpie Murders is on my list to get to!
I've only read his most recent murder mystery ones but they are all incredible.
The Word Is Murder
The Sentence is Death
I absolutely loved the execution of Magpie Murders, however the content can get a little meaty at times and it was very British so it kinda dragged, to me, a bit but the ending was absolutely brilliant.
The Word Is Murder and The Sentence Is Death are both in a series revolving around a Detective and Anthony Horowitz himself being a character in his own book. Word is my personal favorite and the one I keep trying to convince my wife to read.
If you like puzzles, there are alot of puzzle elements to all of these that are really well done.
