    Amazing book

    John saul is one of my favorite authors and in my opinion this was one of his best books. If you liked this book i suggest you read another of his books, Comes the Blind Fury. This book was very intruging but a few questions were left unanswered. I luv horror books like these even though im only 11.

    Great Read!

    One of the best trillers I've ever read. Read it for the first time in high school. Now reading it again and a little disappointed in the ending. However, I will be re-reading some of his earlier books!

    Great

    I read this book in seventh grade after my sister told me to. It was great. I read it three times that year and it was just as good every time. I would read it again but my teacher wanted to read it and she never gave it back

    Great Book

    I read this book continuosly for six hours. I just couldn't put it down. This is exactly my kind of book.I was glad I found it since I am very unhappy with a lot of books I read. The book had a interesting end, and I think it was very unpredictable. The plot was well established.I am on my second 'Saul' book and I still think that this was his greastest so far. Nothing can really explain how great this book is, you just have to read it yourself.

    Cuh-reepy! One of the first books by Saul that I read and went on to read 5 more in a row! If you like scary stories with children as the "villians" then you will enjoy this one.

    I think this story went beyond strange, disturbing might be a better word. As the story goes on, the more disturbing it gets. The ending was not a true ending. After finally showing some positives to this weird story and getting one's hopes up, it suddenly has a major let down even before the end.

    more from this reviewer

    This was a decent book, but John Saul has written better books.

    This was a decent book, but John Saul has written better books. While the storyline was creepy in itself, the ending kind of let us down. We got sort of a "glimpse" of the end you could say but there was not true ending. It would have been nice if he gave readers a little more inforamtion about Sara, and about Elizabeth in the end, but the plot and the rest of the book was pretty good. So, if you are a John Saul fan pick it up, if not don't make this your first book by the author. Some of his newer novels are much better.

    Thoroughly enjoying until.....

    The ending. I was very engaged in this creepy and suspenseful tale until the ending happened. In an effort not to spoil the story, I wont say how it disappointed me and why it left me irritated but I will say that it seemed like ge either forgot a chapter or he got tired of writing it. Such a steep let down for a great novel.

    A must read for JOHN SAUL fans

    This is the VERY FIRST book I ever read, Not only did i become a "SAUL" fan after reading this book, I became a advid reader. I was 12 yrs. old when I first read it & I have re-read it more times than i can remember.This is by far one of Mr. Sauls finest books, I could not put it down. Now some thirty- some yrs later i can read it AGAIN on my NOOK! I love this book!!

    A bit of a disappointment not scary enough

    This was an extremely suspensful book but it wasn't scary or gory enough compared to some other John Sauls books but it is recommended to people who like a good suspensful book.

    Great Read

    This book was the first, but not the last, book I picked up of Sauls. It made me a devoted fan of his. The twists in all the right places made me read this book in just a couple hours.
