Worth reading, good but not great.

I started reading Bentley Little years ago. This was actually the second time I have read The Revelation, and I am glad I did. It has rich characters, and a very unique horror twist. I read it in two sittings. I highly recommend Bentley Little' stories. I hope Dominion comes out as a Nookbook soon.

Pretty good, kind of scary. Conclusion was a little weak. But interesting concept for sure.

Reading 'The Revelation' was my first attempt at finding new horror authors. I had heard good things about Mr. Little and this one seemed to be one of his more praised books. Overall, I felt that this story was very average. The monsters in the book were a bit out of the ordinary, but were also not very scary. A lot of events kept building and promising great horror to come, but I felt the book never really delivered. The monsters were not scary to me. I didn't really connect with the characters, and it took no unexpected twists to put it up there with the 'masters' of horror like Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz. If you haven't read a lot of great horror, this could be mildly entertaining, but for those that want a real shock look elsewhere.

Bentley Little has yet another masterpiece in this one. Definitely something that will keep you on your toes.

This book flows real well. The chapters are short and to the point and the whole thing lays out like a movie on paper. It's easy to visualize and fun to read. Towards the end it gets pretty chaotic, almost as if the writer had a target number of words and was trying to squeeze everything into that frame. But you won't want to put it down either.

I am a huge horror fan and have read a few Bentley Little books. This is my third (not my fav.) I guess what I didnt like so much about it was the fact that he used dead fetuses as the monsters in this book. But I guess if you have read his books you would see that he goes far beyond normal to get his killers. In any event the characters were believeable, I enjoyed Brother Elias and Gordon and Marina. I was glad to see that in the end they lived "Happily Ever After". If your a fan of his work I would read this one, its a bit gruesome but thats what makes a good horror novel!

The story was really interesting up until the end (similar to The Association). I don't want to be harsh because maybe I just don't understand horror fiction yet (I'm used to reading psychological thrillers). For me, the idea of unborn babies (basically, fetuses) crawling around and killing (eating people alive) didn't really scare me or seem entertaining. Finally, a handful of grown men and some preacher engage in a war against these fetuses and a HUGE baby emerging out of the ground. If Mr. Little has children, I hope they were not the source for his inspiration in writing this novel. The plot is creepy, not scary (in my opinion). Judge for yourself. It's won an award, so what do I know? If you like the idea of unborn fetuses eating people alive, you will love this book.

This is the first Bentley Little book I've read and I was extremely impressed!!! Little captures the reader by his intricate detail and managability of each character. Each setting is well thought out and and described in a way that a perfect picture can be seen by the reader. One of the scariest books I've ever read and I've read alot of horror. This is a bit gory but if you can get past that you'll be fine.

Look out townfolk, the dead unborn babies of the past are coming to town to kick butt. This book is scary! I must admit that the thought of dead babies crawling around and killing people is an odd storyline but Little makes it work. This is my second book from the author and I enjoy his writing.
