I love the movie so much. This book is also pretty epic, gotta read it again to refresh my memory
I always enjoy Mr. Maberry's work. This is no exception though it doesn't quite live up to his other stuff. I have yet to see the film version of this piece but from what I can tell by the previews it matches well. Scary, colorful, dramatic...it will keep you reading well into the night.
