    Soemthing A Bit Different For Keene

    "Terminal" is not your typical Brian Keene novel. It is however, typical Brian Keene, simply brilliant! "Terminal" is the type of story that keeps morphing into something different. From the outset the set up grabs you and demands that you turn the page. It's been awhile since I've been forced to turn the pages like this.

    The story is simple. The prose is real and raw. The words clearly flow from the proverbial pen of Keene. The story keeps twisting. Evertime you think you know where it's going it turns. Every turn keeps pulling you along. It's not epic in scope but there is still time to feel a bond with all the characters.

    What most sets "Terminal" apart from Keene's other work is that it much more rooted in reality then anything else. The supernatural/horror element is not over-the-top splattter punk but something more akin to a Stephen King novel. It could be suggested this story pays homage to Keene's influence from King. Despite it's departure from Keene's usual style it still is signature Keene.

    If you've read Keene before this book is a nice departure that still enjoyable. If you've never been exposed to Keene before this book would be an exellent place to start. Just read it!

    Life is filled with the unexpected....

    You have grown up hating the town you live in and want to get out as soon possible. Yet as with a lot of people¿s dreams, some just don't come true. Life happens or so it does for Tommy O¿Brien, Keene¿s main character. O¿Brien is living the life most folks fall into, marriage, children and the usual 40 hour grind. As if life isn¿t hard on it¿s on merit, O¿Brien is faced with several life changing events one so devastating it leaves him literally on the edge of death. He¿s not only lost his job at the factory but he¿s found out he has terminal cancer. He¿s scared and he¿s alone in his disease because the last thing he wanted was his wife to worry. What was he going to do? Overwhelmed by the events that happen in his life O¿Brien turns to his friends after all he can¿t keep it bottled up inside him because he knows if he does his wife and their son will be left with absolutely nothing. Sitting in the car with his best friends, John and Sherm, they devise a plan that hopefully will help him care for his family in his departure from this earth. The plan has to be carried out quickly though, because time is something O¿Brien doesn't have the luxury of. Brian Keene's ¿Terminal¿, is truly a page turner. I really enjoyed this book. Do you want to know what happens to O¿Brien and his family? How are John and Sherm going to help their buddy in his time of need? I seriously suggest you read the book and find out! You will not be disappointed Keene's spun an unforeseen heartwarming tale woven with love, friendship and a touch of the super natural. 4 Stars - Reviewed by Michael S.
