So far fetched it becomes a bore!
As a Laymon fan I have to say this has got to win the 'most far fetched' award. Yes, Laymon is typical of far fetched novels but this wins hands down! Sherry is in for one heck of a night. I continued to ask myself 'why' doesn't she ever call the police. I'm sure that would be a Laymon no-no, but geez this book just gets farther and farther away from reality. I found myself saying 'oh, come on-this can't be happening.' When a book just gets to unrealistic for me I have a hard time staying interested. This is one of them. I love Laymon and will continue to hunt down books he wrote. I just hope this is the worst!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The worst ever.
I can't believe anybody reviewed this book positively. It's badly written and has amazing gaping holes in the plot. The main female character spends almost the whole book half-naked; all the 'good guys' are Rush Limbaugh fans who keep loaded guns in their houses, even the rich suburban teenagers; and the characters' behavior just doesn't make sense. Just as one example, the main character never calls the police throughout the whole book, and no good reason is ever given for her not doing so; she'd apparently rather run around bleeding and in rags trusting to random male strangers to help her. Add in some totally gratuitous teenage rape scenes, and I wish I could have given this book zero stars instead of 1.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
