Baal 3.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 12 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I have read all of Robert McCammon books with the exception of Baal, until now. I love How energetic the characters are and How full of hope the way only a young 25 year old author could portray. I am happy to have finally read what has undoubtedly launched an an amazing career that has spanned 5 decades.

Robert McCammon has been one of my favorites for many years. His writing always pulls you in and does not disappoint!

Baal was a very nice novel to read late at night. Not that it was scary mind you, but it was something that helped fit in with the time of day I read it. I enjoyed the characterizations of Baal and the men who follow after him to make sure this demon given flesh doesn't make good on his promise to destroy Israel, which he harbors a grudge against for destroying Canaan. Unfortunately, there are some parts in this novel that are either never followed up on or discarded for other ideas. I may be wrong on some accounts, because I could have accidentally passed over some plot points due to my speed reading. However, these problems aren't that major at all and are small enough to not effect the feeling I had throughout my time reading it. I do have to say that I enjoyed reading Swan's Song before this, otherwise I might be on the fence as to whether or not I'd check McCammon out again. However, for the man's first novel, Baal isn't that bad at all. 3 and a half stars out of 5.

I love Robert McCammon's work. This book is certainly the exception. I'm glad this was not the first of his books I read, becasue it certainly would have been the last and I would have missed out on one of my all time favortie authors. It was poorly written, the characters were flat and he went for shock value while trying to obtain horror. I would say skip this one and read Boy's Life or Wolf's Hour.

This was a good first novel by this great author. I was so impressed a few months ago when I read his novel Swan Song that I went out and found a large portion of his other novels. Baal seemed like a good place to start. Not a bad novel at all (though nowhere near the level of Swan Song). I could tell however that this was his first novel. Some of the plot points seemed forced, the characters were flat and the ending was weak. However, overall this was a fun book and I enjoyed the shock value that he provides at different points. Needless to say, this was a decent book and I know that his later books get better, so I¿m looking forward to more of his novels.

Pretty boring rehash of a theme that was already cliche when it was written. You'll feel like you're reading 'The Omen' again.
