The Blackstone Chronicles is a creepy set of stories all revolving over one thing... an Asylum. The stories/series sets itself around strange occurences that being to take place as one by one, objects are left at peoples doors. Each object contains one memory of madness, from a person who was in the Asylum 40 years ago. Told by a true story teller, John Saul knows how to write a good horror book. The Blackstone Chronicles is a definite MUST for fans of both horror and John Saul. With these creepy installments, one will NOT be disappointed.

Great book! Excellent story! My favorite of his so far. I liked how he tied everything together in the end so creatively, and those who didnt get it did not ready carefully,!

A great read. Very chilling and the combinations of the story was fluid. I would recommend to those that like scary books. Very similar to Dean Koontz

I think this story would've been much better had he published it at one time, in one volume and forgotten the serial fad. He acknowledges in his foreword, worded differently of course, that he didn't have the cojones to do it until Stephen King published The Green Mile in serial form. The story line is good, but very repetitive. I don't know if Saul realized that his faithful fans who were waiting for the monthly installment didn't need to be told at the beginning of every part that there was a dark figure lurking in the Asylum looking for gifts. That's pretty well established in any reader's mind from the beginning; it's the huge unanswered question of the whole book: Who is the mysterious dark figure? I also think that there didn't have to be six "gifts"; Saul could've cut the "gifts" down to three or four and the plot/suspense would not have suffered. All in all it's a decent read, but not as good as his regular novels. The revelation of who the Asylum's dark figure is made up for the repetition.

I been reading his books since 1991. I have just about all his books. Do not need any other books to read. My hats off to you John Saul.

I think that this is the best book that Saul has ever written. I have read all of his books, and reading about old characters like that was deeply thrilling. A MUST READ!!!-especially for all John Saul fans.
