    Hellfire Club

    The Hellfire Club is about a man name Davey Chancel,and his multi-generational family that owns a publishing business. Which is Chancel House, it is being kept afloat by its ownership of the copyright of author Hugo Driver's Night Journey. Night Journey is one of those books that people obsess over,and name their selves after the characters of the book. The history of this book is a major plot point and is so well-described, and well written.

    But on the other hand,this book was not of Peter Straub's best book to me. It had a lot of detail, which I like. But the biggest draw back to me of the whole book. Was how lengthy it was, and how when you got to chapter 70. You were kinda just warn out of the whole plot.

    I enjoy the originality,characters, and plot. So I give it 4 and 1/2 stars!!!!

    Riveted, not riveting!

    I am a Stephen King fan, and took his "recommendation" very seriously.
    I have also read all John Saul's works; I'm always entertained and intrigued. Peter Straub has (so-far) proved a disappointment, in his Hellfire Club. I am on page 136; that accomplishment has been a challenge! I am not engaged in the plot and I cannot identify with the inciped characters. I am hoping it picks up the pace. I have been told it will be rich in detail and complex in execution. So far I am very disappointed. I will be adding further comments, if redemption of the author is warrented!

    Creepy Thriller

    I wasn't sure what I was getting into but I do enjoy thrillers and this one was a mystery embedded in a thriller. It grabbed my attention quickly with the characters. If you dont like perverse bad characters, don't read it; Dick Dart is definitely perverse but also a very funny character.

    Dishonesty Among Publishers, Authors, Editors and Lawyers.

    On one level the book is about dishonesty among publishers, authors, editors and lawyers. It is also about strong-willed fathers whose destructive acts affect succeeding generations. There are many different strands to the book, even one dealing with ultra-secret societies at Yale. Peter Straub is able to weave these pieces together with extraordinary skill and the result is a story which is riveting.
