    Okay we get it. The book takes place in 1984. To much of that. Starts off real slow and boring. Doesn't get much better. Too many times Keenes books leave so many things undone.

    If you're looking for something fresh and surprising - I wouldn't suggest it.

    This was an easy book to read. It is your classic horror story with a little twist. It revolves around three boys. One has an abusive father, one an incestuous mother, the other the perfect family life. These three boys enjoy the summer months playing in the local cemetery. Where they have made an underground fort. But then the town starts missing women one of whom is the daughter of the local priest. This is the only difference I found in this story from any other horror story out there. Once you get past the three boys screwed up lives, it's the same old story. The evil character gets killed and the girl is rescued. So if you're seeking a book based on blood, guts and sex, Ghoul is one you may wish to read however if you are looking for something new and surprising I wouldn't suggest it.

    His worst book so far

    In my opinion, Ghoul is one of Brian Keene's worst book to date. After reading The Rising and City of The Dead, I was expecting a novel of that stature~ full of original ideas and surprises. Unfortunately, Ghoul did not live up to those expectations. Aside from this disaster, all of his other books are outstsanding and I can't wait to read his newest~Dark Hallow.

    A reviewer

    After City of the Dead and Conqueror Worms, it was only a matter of time before Keene wrote a complete flop. The contents of Ghoul it's characters, scene, setting, '80's stuff' and so forth were fresh and exciting ingredients that could have summoned such an adventure dire for readers during this summer. But it's assembly along with it's plot came out, unfortunately, half-arse. It seemed as if Keene put little thought into this novel and was in a hurry to finish it. The most captivating moment of the book was at the epilogue. When the book that is suppose to be fiction actually exposes the reality of many unfortunate outcomes. Conqueror Worms is Brian Keenes greatest work.
