The cheese is strong with this one.
Creepers - Bryan Dunn

 

Mutating man eating creeper vines.

If you like those old B horror movies, you will enjoy this.

However, if I hear deuce and half even once in the next month I will scream.
And possibly strangle whoever says it.
16 times in a 200 page book.

Another one I'm not sure where it fits.

Creepers
Creepers - David Morrell Actual rating is 3.5 stars.

Over the top, full of unlikely events, coincidences and character motivations, this book nevertheless was perfectly paced and full of enough dramatic twists and turns to keep me flipping the pages until I finished the whole thing in a single setting.

Like a strange hybrid of POSIEDON and the thriller movie IDENTITY, Creepers is non-stop action and a heck of a good time that keeps things moving along at such a fast and smooth pace you won't bother to take the time to think about the ridiculousness of everything - kind of like a Richard Laymon novel without the lechery.

David Morrell is an incredibly readable writer, and even though I never got a good feeling for the actual layout of the hotel they were exploring (it seemed to grow larger and larger as the story progressed), the action was well written and gripping.

Recommended if you're looking for a good pulpy page-turner. I liked it enough that I plan to read the sequel, Scavengers, next.

Status Update: The Beginning
Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

That's when I noticed the still, white figure. Edward Cullen was leaning against the front door of the Volvo, three cars down from me, and staring intently in my direction.

 

Guys, I want you to remember this update. These two sentences signify the moment that every book boyfriend became an epic, stalkery douchcanoe. 

 

After you're dead, that is.

[Review] Genji Monogatari
The Tale of Genji - Murasaki Shikibu,Royall Tyler

I think at some point in time I do want to read all of The Tale of Genji. But for now: life is too short. I recognise the historical significance of the work. However, the translation and style make for a tedious read (and I simply don't have the willpower to keep going for another 1000+ pages).

And Genji is a complete creep.

Creepers
Creepers - David Morrell The past plays a major role in many of David Morrell’s novels, and Creepers is no different. A group of creepers – urban explorers who break into old abandoned buildings to document the past – are joined by a reporter as they enter the Paragon Hotel, a once posh hotel that now rots along with many other buildings in Ashbury Park on the Jersey shore. Inside they find secrets – and terrors – that have lain hidden for nearly a hundred years.

The Paragon itself is a time capsule capturing the history of once popular beach resort of Ashbury Park. Individual rooms stand as memorials to former guests who lived and often died there. But the times gone by of Ashbury Park and the Paragon are not the only histories that concern Morrell. Most of the characters in this novel have pasts they would rather forget, and Morrell explores how those pasts can shape or corrupt the individual.

Three of the characters are victims of one sort of torture or another. One faced torment as a POW during the Iraq war. Another was sexually abused as a child. The third was imprisoned by a psychopathic killer. How those experiences shaped their lives is a major theme of the novel.

Creepers starts slow, but builds to a fast paced, heart-thumping climax.
