    I have not finished it, but this book is like pulling teeth

    Do not judge this book by its cover. The artwork on the front is the only redeeming quality of the book. Once you open the book, let the boredom and horrible plot begin.

    ...dot dot dot...

    I have to say, I did like this books plot, and most of all the imagery, but it seemed a bit lengthy at times. Don't get me wrong the book is great, but I think sometimes it was a little too detailed on some things and it made it kind of monotonous.I still reccomed it.

    Great horror tale

    American professor Dr. Lennox Price moves his family to Goodmanswood, England to study the dark legends surrounding the area especially the delusions of the nearby residents. However, instead of debunking the myths, Lennox is soon sucked into his work as a converted true believer. Thus he is committed, but quickly develops a cult following among the asylum¿s crazier folks.<P> His daughter archivist Heather follows up on her father¿s enigmatic beliefs about Goodmanswood that links them to the alchemist Nathaniel Selcouth, who resided there. Heather digs into the works of Nathaniel, who apparently was trying to fashion a messenger who would serve as his servant in seeking the outer limits of the spiritual and physical universe. Meanwhile, children insist a grotesque 'sticky man' resides in the woods. Heather wonders if he exists and if he does is he the evil behind all the malevolence destroying the Price family?<P> THE DARKEST PART OF THE WOODS is a classic horror tale that works because of the set up by Ramsey Campbell is at its best here. The Price family are intelligent nice people who are being overwhelmed by a sinister darkness that grows ever menacing with each new page. The story line is taut as readers will feel the creepiness of the woods that transforms into something immoral and dangerous. Mr. Campbell is at his best with this superb horror thriller.<P> Harriet Klausner
