    On a cold October night, five people gather in a run-down motel on the Jersey shore and begin preparations to break into the Paragon Hotel. Built in the glory days of Asbury Park by a reclusive millionaire, the magnificent structure - which foreshadowed the beauties of art deco architecture - is now boarded up and marked for demolition.

    "Fun and exciting and then..."
    Overall

    I loved the idea around this book; investigating an old house and finding out secrets...and the story stayed riveting three quarters of the way through..I wanted to know more aobut each mystery...but then it just seemed to just grind away...

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    Lesley says: "Yikes! Five stars for fright"
    "the characters are so negative"
    Overall

    I felt sorry for the characters. The story was scary and exciting but characters were more negative than I thought they should have been. It was a very enjoyable but dark story, with a "surprise ending"

    Nolan Lerner is guilty. His past is a thing choked with secrets, blood � and sunflowers. Only Nolan knows what really happened that summer in 1977, when his younger brother, an idiot savant named Morris, built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors inside, doors leading into other worlds.

    I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. It was well worth my time. Joe Hill has his own style and once I got over the fact that he isn't his dad I really liked his own unique style.

    In a dusty trailer park on the far edge of the California dream, Michelina wants to change the direction of her troubled life but can't find her way. When a new family settles into the rental trailer next door, Micky meets the young girl who will change her forever.

    Perk4me says: "Koontz outdoes himself"
    "Starts out good but I had enough after a while"
    Overall

    The main characters had well quirky personalities and I enjoyed them very much. They showed great humor in the face of poverty and violence. The overall story grew tiresome after some time. Maybe it should have ended sooner. Maybe i'm just not into aliens...or maybe it was the narrator?

    This is perfection...To hear Stephen Kings words made this book come so alive for me. The story combines elements that I love, family intrigue, horror, mystery, the ocean, and best of all-the interactions between friends. I just love Kings converational style...loved it, loved it, loved it!
