    Disturbing, disgusting trash.

    I know what I may be in for when I pick up a book by Richard Laymon, that's why I thumb through before actually sitting down to read it. And so, I found out that this was page after page after page of sickening violence committed by sick, revolting SOBs written by an author who must have had very serious issues himself. I threw this thing back on the library shelf.
    Don't you know about enough real-life horror that's just like this? Vermin torturing and raping and cannibalizing and mutilating and breaking and destroying living, breathing, real-live people? There's nothing over-the-top or unreal about the psychos in this book or what they do - get your hands on a book called "Blood Letters and Bad Men". I think it comes in volumes - there were (are?) so many psychos rubbing elbows with the rest of us that one book couldn't talk about them all.
    I don't read Richard Laymon because I consider him a favorite author (most of his books are sickening) I read Laymon because every now and then he does an excellent job. Out of all he's had published I've found two that I didn't immediately reject after a few pages into it: "Stake" and "Bite". These are books by Laymon told with interesting, twisting plots, populated with every day, normal, ordinary people who find themselves in "what the hell?" situations and then have to get themselves dirty to get out of the weird s- they find themselves in. Endless Night will - and should - bother you. Please go elsewhere.

    Review

    This is the worse book I have ever read. I made it to page 88 and couldn't take it any longer. I kept thinking it was going to get better but it didn't. The author better keep his day job.

    Scary Idea

    Jody is staying at her friends house. In the middle of the night a bunch of guys break in killing everyone. Jody and her friends brother, Andy, manage to escape. But the killers want them dead, because they are witnesses. Jody's father who is a cop, tries to protect them. This book was a bit extreme, but what I found scary is that something like this could happen in real life. Not to this extreme but people in real life have broken into homes and killed the family members living there...

    ANOTHER GREAT BOOK BY LAYMON

    Richard Laymon is the best horror writer ever! This book isn't his best, but it's great. He just is awesome.

    Endless Night, endless book!

    While I'm a devoted Richard Laymon fan, having enjoyed many dark thrillers by the author, I finished reading ENDLESS NIGHT and, while I liked the book and its characters, it definitely wasn't Laymon's best work. First, I don't understand the title: ENDLESS NIGHT. The story covered a few nights, not just one. Also, the book was 466 pages too long. By the last hundred pages, I was thinking the book would never end, not to mention, some of the stuff I was reading was rediculous. For example, the maniac killer, Simon, actually ran around dressed as a woman while wearing a woman's scalped hair on his head. What? Anyway, I like the idea behind book and cared for the characters, Jody, Jack, and Sharon. Toward the end, however, when Andy had a chance to shoot the killer, he passed up at least a half dozen chances. Why? Basically, this book was one long chase. Unfortunately, while there were some good scenes, I couldn't help but roll my eyes because the story got downright silly.

    Totally Gross!!!!

    IF you like the fact that Richard Laymon writes about stuff that will actually never happen in real life, then you will love this book! A couple of times I found myself turning my head and I had to remind myself that this was just a book. If you like his style of writing then you will love this one!

    Twisted, funny, disturbing . . . Fun.

    This is among the grizzliest, most twisted, and often funny of the Laymon books. It takes unrelenting hard-core sociopathic wickedness to levels that are a tad dark, even for Laymon. By contrast, the victim and her family are personified sweetness. Naturally, there are the trademark sprinklings of adolescent sexual innuendo. In short, it is one of his best. It¿s really sad that we¿ve lost Laymon. If he were still walking around, this might have been the one that got him committed.
