yah man, I agree with The Shining. Just wondering if there's any books that actually surpass the book for entertainment.

Just got done reading IT again. That will always be one of my favorite books. Sadly I thought the movie was pretty terrible. Of course that was only compared to the book.

Before that I found The Five people you meet in heaven at the laundromat. Now I am not personally a religious person, but I could not help but get sucked into this book. It was incredibly well written, the characters easy to envision, and it was actually a very easy read. A good book to spend an afternoon with. It'll keep you thinking through the next day too.

I've read a lot of Stanford "Prey" series books but I had to stop because it was messing with my head. You see by the last few books I was rooting for the killers because I just started to really dislike Davenport. After hoping that some crazed maniac would get away with a brutal crime and kill a cop I realized I had to stop reading the books.

The books (or maybe there was only 1) that involved Clara Rinker were the best of the series. But again I only feel that way because she was someone that I hopes would kill Davenport....

Yeah that was Certain Prey, and she was awesome.

Virgil "fuckin'" Flowers is cooler than Davenport.

It's due to the telvision version that I watched when I was a youngster that I am so afraid of clowns, but now I've read the book I enjoyed it more due to being scared haha

Wasn't sure if you were up to that so I didn't go and say that she's in 2 of the books or it would have kind of ruined the first one. She comes back in Mortal Prey.

Cool, I'll go look for that one. I've been reading them in random orders so it doesn't matter.

Yeh I've got Phantom Prey almost finished that, which has been really good.

I think the library at my school has Certain Prey so if you recommend it i'll go hire it out.
