    OK, could have been spookier.

    Ending could have been better. I felt like the story was dragging on while the ending came pretty abruptly and wasn't all that scary.

    Same thing over and over

    The beginning of the book grabbed me. Then once the middle came I became tired because it seemed redundant. Get past the middle and it became much better.

    pretty good

    Had a slow start but it got better. I'm not done yet. Reminds me of some old movies or old mysteries where....well, I won't say and ruin it for others who haven't read it yet!

    The New John Saul

    The tiny town of Fall's Church, Massachusetts is beset with supernatural occurances. A plague of irrational violence is spreading from resident to resident through nightmares, this nightmare is passed to the next person when you tell them about your dream. Ross effectively writes a small town horror tale and is able to keep the pace moving, though his cast of characters is perhaps too large. I would reccomend this book to fans of John Saul.

    Don't Close Your Eyes

    This book was terrible. Despite my three unsuccesful attempts to warn others of this book (hint to BN customers), I hope at least the people reviewing these messages got the point, not to read this book. For good reading material, see anything besides this book. Thank you for your time.

    Steven King and other authors need to step up to the pump

    The book is awesome. Never a dull moment! It hooks you from the very first page and never lets go. No slow spots or extra filler like in some Steven King and all Tom Clancy novels. Characters you care about, a good plot with the suspense ever rising! Just plain good story telling and well written! Worth every penny!

    Don't Close Your Eyes

    This book was about ghosts and goblins that come back every decade. Scary, not seemingly.

    Don't Close Your Eyes

    This book stunk. Started off good, but failed to develop. It would make a good teenage-thriller ghost movie, like and original from TBS. Or USA's dinner and a movie, where they couldn't afford any rights to a better movie.

    Father Fall is looking for you

    This book was a great read! I liked the progression. The chapters were short and charged. The historical reference really made a nice touch and gave substance to the story. Really worth your time.

    Impossible to put down!!

    This book was impossible to put down. He left you wanting to find out what was in store in the next chapter. A real page turner. It's been a long time since I have read a book that kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end. His writing style is along the lines of Stephen King and John Saul-two of my personal favorites.

    For fans Of King and Koontz

    Church Falls is a complacent town on Cape Cod that obtains much of its income from tourists. Nate Tuck has found a haven in Church Falls after shooting a fourteen-year-old gangster in Oakland and when the chief retires he is expected to be the next Sheriff. Nate doesn¿t know that once every generation an outsider instigates the townsfolk into turning against one another and the cycle is about to begin again.<P> Victoria Kennelly broke the last cycle of hate when she told the residents that they were wrong to try to expel students suffering with AIDS. A few days later, while trick or treating with her friend Petey, her family and home burst into flames and Petey disappeared, his body never found. Now Victoria feels compelled to return to her hometown because evil has reappeared. Violence, hate crimes and murder have begun again. Nate has a hard time believing these incidents are based on the supernatural but offers no counter explanation.<P> Fans of Stephen King, Bentley Little and Dean Koontz are going to treasure DON¿T CLOSE YOUR EYES, a supernatural thriller that is so scary readers will go to bed with so much lighting on that a lit up stadium at night will seem dim in comparison. Victoria and Nate are polar opposites with one grounded in reality and the other accepting that sometimes the only explanation is mired in the supernatural. Using both logic systems, they combine forces to fight the evil that is destroying the town from the inside out. Robert Ross deserves a Bram Stoker nomination for this chilling horror novel.<P> Harriet Klausner
