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.

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.

Creepers - David Morrell Frank Balenger joins a group of modern urban explorers "creepers" in entering an abandoned hotel, The Paragon in Asbury Park New Jersey. The hotel is designed by an agoraphobic man, Morgan Carlisle, who once inside never leaves the building which resembles a Mayan pyramid. The creep factor starts before they even enter the hotel from a long abandoned tunnel where mutated albino rats and cats stalk them. The suspense grows as the story of each character is slowly disseminated while they work their way to the penthouse. This is a book that I started at 8pm on a Sunday and was sucked in so far that I didn't put the book down until I read the last page at 11:59pm while chewing my fingernails to nubs. Yeah it's that suspenseful!

I've read David Morrell before and really liked his books but usually he writes stand-alones so this is the first that is actually part of a series. I really liked Frank Balenger's character so I will definitely be following him on another adventure, specifically [b:Scavenger|21836|Scavenger|David Morrell|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1167323725s/21836.jpg|22917].
