For the uninitiated, Joe R Lansdale is an original in modern fiction. Most known for his early works in the horror genre, but he's also equally revered for his westerns, mystery thrillers, such as his Hap and Leonard series, graphic novels, and even YA. THE DRIVE IN, which also spawned two sequels, is about a group of teenagers who decide to spend Friday night at The Orbit, to take in the all night horror marathon. But then a mysterious comet comes rocketing down at them from the night sky...and things take a decidedly bizarre turn. More bizarro than real horror, but Lansdale cleverly weaves in equal amounts of blood and gore along with subtle social commentary in his trademark wry wit and humor. Highly recommended!

Mr. Lansdale sets the bait and then slowly but steadily reels you in. You don't even realize you've been hooked until you get to the last page and want more. A superb, evocative book that is an absolute page-turner (or page-clicker, in the case of electronic editions).

The literary equivalent of a Dario Argento film--crazed, blood-drenched, maniacal, surreal & oh, so brutally satisfying. Bring the popcorn & beer, you'll need it.
