Last time I negatively reviewed a McCammon book, I lost a long time acquaintance due to my opinion, so I thought long and hard about something today, and I realized thatI m willing to put money on the fact cole slaw is a type of salad, and that hotdogs are, indeed, sandwiches That s my final answer.
It would seem that, for the first few years of his career, Robert McCammon was doing everything he could to be the best mimic in the horror business Perhaps this is why he, for a while there, didn t like his early novels His first four books are retreads borderline thefts of better books ideas written by the giants of the time King, Straub, Barker McCammon rode trends like cowboys do horses, only deviating from the path long enough to be as flowery as possible in goofy situations like vam What a novel, this is 80s horror at its very best A serial killer terrorizes L.
A Who is the man the press calls Roach and what is his motivation What about his mental contact to a master Is there in this story than a psychopath Much Prince Vulkan found his way from Hungary across the Pond He adores Alexander the Great and wants to establish a Kingdom of Vampires The whole town of LA is to be turned into a town of vampires What about mysterious biker Kobra love that character and the eerie mansion on the hill where a horror actor was beheaded incredible setting Can Andy Palatazin, a police captain and Hungarian immigrant safe the town and its population What about Father Silvera This is one of the best vampire stories I ever read It s a massive book but something you can t stop reading Some interesting, well carved characters, parallel strands of the pl I didn t think I would like this book as much as I didn t Omg, it was awesome Think swan song but with vampires Best vampire book ever I am so sick and tired of soulful, guilt ridden vampires Whatever happened to evil vampires The ones who want to rid the earth of humanity The ones that make you wake up in the middle of the night scared that you might not live to see the sun rise Don t get me wrong, I am a huge Anne Rice fan Lestat is one of the all time best characters and Buffy although that is a movie tv show , but vampires are suppose to strike fear into people s hearts not make you want them as a boyfriend I couldn t put this down Every free second I had I was reading it McCammon writes with a lot of detail, to the point that you can picture everything around you I was living in Los Angeles when I read the book and his description of the area the street names and roads was to I read this one long ago and frankly had forgotten it It s a not bad read that approaches really good at times Every vampire book these days seems to have it s own version of the vampire myth and this while it s not all that recent does to, slightly It stays pretty close to the traditional vampire persona, but as in some other books it owes to the movie tradition than the actual folklore or Stoker esk or Dracula esk vampire Here the author, using the everyone who gets bitten becomes a vampire motif, looks at the ultimate outcome of such a plot point I mean, haven t you wondered why some place didn t end up hip deep in bloodsuckers Well, here they do With the help of some black magic to keep the populace from fleeing the vamp in question sets out to bring about the biggest change in LA since 1910 and the beginning of the California U
The prose in this novel is electrifying McCammon has a way of capturing his reader s attention from the very first After all, who can forget the opening lines of Gone South Night had filled up the barrio like black rainwater in a bomb crater, and what stirred in its depths was unnameable.
So Vampires Before they were the laughing stock of the literary world they were actually pretty damn scary Don t believe me Then read this book Scattered in the dirt at the grave s bottom were yellow bones held together by cobwebs of wispy lace.
I would be lying if I didn t admit this reminded me of Salem s Lot, at least a bit Where Stephen King s seminal vampire story takes place in I m not sure how this one slipped through my fingers I could ve sworn that I d read They Thirst many, many years ago, but for some odd reason I couldn t remember much at all about it So, I figured it was time for a re read Well, now I know why I don t remember much about it I never read the damn thing, in the first place And oh what a treat this has been Imagine discovering a new book by your favorite author written smack dab in the time period of when they did their best writing That s what They Thirst was for me Now, McCammon lists this as one of his early books that he s not very proud of and, yes, you can see a few things that might not fly these days But, keep in mind, this was written back in 1981 Many things written in 81 wouldn t fly today So, in my opinion, McCammon should be very proud of this one Andy Palatazin is the head of homicide in L.
