Stephan King The Mist
The Mist - Stephen King

So I've finally got round to doing a review for this book, I had quite a mission getting this on paperback as nobody in the UK had it for sale. So I had to get it shipped over from the USA. It says the story is from Kings book the skeleton crew? But the king rewrote it and made it longer? 

 

 

I have to say I watched the film and this tale is just like the book, it's amazing both left me with a really eerie feeling, but that's why I love king, he always leaves you thinking week's and days after you have read one of his novels.

 

The book grips you with a surreal feeling I got a total modern feeling of Lovecraft with this Novel and I loved it. I'm a big big fan of H.P Lovecraft so this was a feeling of nostalgia.

 

 

This novel is mainly about survival. The main charter in the story 'David Drayton' and His wife and Billy There young son, are on holiday when a Violent thunderstorm awakes an unnatural Mist that quickly spreads across their town of Bridgton, Maine. After that, with out giving away too much of the plot of sorts, of terrifying things happen that is a true struggle for survival to all the characters in the book.

 

Truly a really good read. All Hail the king! :)

Usher's Passing - Robert R. McCammon

Robert McCammon, Where have you been all my life! I know, forgive me, I just found out how fucking amazing Robert McCammon is as a writer! He's literally Astounding. His style is a no nonsense, pull you in.. And keep you wanting more.

 

Even though Ushers passing is the first and only book of his I've ever read in my life. I'm a new fan and will be looking for more of his book's in the future! I love the cover works to the paperbacks in the original late 1970s/1980s vibe I'm a total sucker for that.

 

Usher's Passing is basically about the family Mr Edgar Poe wrote about in 1839 bring them up to the 1980s and you have A very Dysfunctional family with a closet full of skeleton's. And the curses they live with because of this. The main deal dapper of this, Is Rix Usher, He is one of the main characters. Rix is a Horror Writer, trying to look for that one fix that will make him great again... And when he's called back to overland, Because the head of the family his father is dying. All those family secrets and Monster's come back once more. But how will it affect Rix and the rest of his family. And what is The ultimate secret to the usher's?

 

This had me sucked in from the 1st page. A rollacoster of up's and down's Every time I finished a chapter I was left with a sense of what was going happen next? Usher's Passing is an excellent read and will definitely be going in my 2016 top reads!
