I read this when i was eleven, now im thirteen, and i could understand it clearly. It does have an exciting plotline but in a more laid back sort of way. I loved seeing michelle change and how amanda influenced her. Michelles thought process was slowing evolving throughout the book, doubting her parents, becoming jealous of her baby sister, angering at things that she would have thought nothing of before. Amanda was using Michelle, she gained her trust based on the fact that they were both "cripples" Michelle didnt realize that, Amanda, whom shed come to trust was actually just turning her on her family, and ultimatly, driving her insane. I loved this book it was easy to understand but not the most thought provoking book ever. Still great read, id recommend it.

I read one of Saul's books years ago and never forgot it. I loved the book, great story and great ending. This one was a big disappointment. Especially the ending which didn't really seem like a real ending. It starts off really good for half the book then becomes depressing. I would not recommend this book for anybody who likes happy endings.

I've been reading John Saul books since I was 9 years old. ( would steal them from my Mom) This was the first one I ever read and it never gets old! Enjoy!

I've read several of John Saul's books and found the story and characters interesting. I read them in Nook form and find many typo errors which take away from the enjoyment of the reading. I haven't read any of his writing in printed form. I'm just wondering if the typo's are due to the books being converted to ebook? If not for all the typos I would give it a four star rating.

I wrote a review of this book when i was 10. It was my first john saul book. I just finished reading it again today. Now, at age thirteen, i have read all his books and this is by far my favorite! In fact, it's my favorite book of all time! The idea was amazing, and i really felt for this book. Although it got depressing halfway through, everything came together and it was GOOD. There is no other way to describe it. I usually dont like anything sad in anyway, but this book was just perfect! It seemed kind of real to me, which made it even better. Everyone who is a fan of horror, john saul, or both should definiatly read this book!

This was the first book I ever read by this author when I was about 17 years old. I have read every book John Saul has written since then. This author is kind of on the order of Stephen King, only more believable and not as far-fetched. Leaves you wondering if something like that could possibly happen.

John Saul is an awesome writer, who creates scary novels the hook the readers. I am a huge fan of the author and own many of his books, and will continue to buy them until I have read them all! 'Comes the Blind Fury' was def on my top 10 novels by this author. The way he links Amanda and the past to Michelle and the future was fantastic. The book was very suspencful and kept you wanting to know more and more. My favorite part of the book, which totally made it what it is, was the end when Jenny starts to get linked to the past.. and then it just ends there. Great book. Any horror fans/and fans of Saul should pick this one up! You will not be disappointed!!

I couldn't put this book down, I don't remember how old I was-but I know I was younger maybe 12 or 13. He hooked me with this book, so much so that I am getting it again and reading it over. Reccommend this one-not his best but close.

Predictable, clownish, & the adults act like children. I only finished it to find out how it ended. what a waste of time and a huge disapointment!

I read this book about a year ago. It had a sad ending, but was really interesting. John Saul's characters are always interesting.

I first read this book when i was nine years old and i still haven't been able to forget it now at age 25! Hopefully that says something for it other than maybe i was reading horror stories at too young an age!!

Do not get me wrong. This was a GREAT book. I have not read a John Saul book yet that I have been disappointed in. I give it only 4 stars just because it got a little repetative and didn't get the point all to quick. BUT.... It WAS a Great read. And I recomend it very highly. I read this in a week and a half which is very fast for me. ENJOY!
