½ Read Í One Rainy Night by Richard Laymon Ñ I had never heard of Richard Laymon until I noticed a blurb on a Stephen King novel saying something like Besides Laymon and Koontz, King hasblah, blah, blah So I went to my favorite used bookstore in my hometown and decided to see for myself what this Laymon guy was up to And, man, the dude had written like thirty books Vampires Aliens The unexplained Etc Etc I chose randomly, three or four titles One Rainy Night was among the fortunate to come home with me As I began the book I thought, No big dealjust another run of the mill horror writer That is until the action heated up You see, Laymon knows where the line is and is not only unafraid of crossing it, he does so with pleasure Women and children, fair game Heroes, they may or may not survive And that s what s so fascinating with his writing It constantly keeps the reader off balanced, eagerly flipping pages Vote 3,5Laymon s version of The Crazies the remake than George Romero s original one meets The Twilight Zone with lots of the author s trademark Sex, violence and bouncing boobs.
A brutal action packed page turner that I finished in a few nights, sadly characters were so lame that in the end I was just not caring very much about their often bloody fate.
Not best Laymon s novel I ve read, still not worst, just not bad at all.
This is one of my new favorite Laymon books What an action packed, fun filled ride through a night of terror and violence I would shelf One Rainy Night as Classic Laymon Other such titles I have thought as highly of from this amazing, but grossly underrated author are Island, Body Rides, Into The Fire, After Midnight and The Cellar I haven t read all of his books, as I am slowly working my through them Unfortunately, we lost Laymon in 2001, when he was felled by a massive heart attack, so once I read through them all, well, that s that.
The plot of One Rainy Night is best described in the blurb I can t do it any better than that The black rain falls, and everyone that gets wet with the gooey stuff goes insane and becomes overwhelmed by the desire to kill and rape and pillage The people not affected by the insanity rain may just be the least fortu
Das war unterhaltsam I wasn t sure at first what to expect from this book, whether it d be just another duty free shop mass market paperback, or a truly great and worthwhile book I m glad to say that One Rainy Night was much better than I thought and that although it has some excessive violence that really seemed unnecessary, it was a creative story and the writing had evident thought put into it.
