The Slab | [Michael R. Collings]

The Slab

On the surface, 1066 Oleander Place seems a typical twenty-something-year-old tract house in the peaceful Southern California town of Tamarind Valley. What no one--not even the closest neighbors--grasps is that this house is deadly: dark, dangerous, and evil to the core. It consumes those who enter it, one by one--spiritually, psychologically, physically! Even to visit the place challenges fate...and promises horror for everyone there.

Publisher's Summary

On the surface, 1066 Oleander Place seems a typical twenty-something-year-old tract house in the peaceful Southern California town of Tamarind Valley. What no one--not even the closest neighbors--grasps is that this house is deadly: dark, dangerous, and evil to the core. It consumes those who enter it, one by one--spiritually, psychologically, physically! Even to visit the place challenges fate...and promises horror for everyone there. In the tradition of Stephen King's Salem's Lot, The Shining, and Pet Sematary, Dean R. Koontz's The Bad Place, and Robert R. McCammon's Usher's Pashing, The Slab offers a phantasmagoria of fear, horror, and terror. Another great read by a master storyteller!

    "Not to good"
    What would have made The Slab better?

    This book was hard to follow and skipped around allot, I also didn't like how at the end of each chapter it is cut off. Apparently this is done purposely. The narrator will be talking and all of a sudden he doesn't even finish his sentence and there is a long pause and then it states the next chapter and just goes right into it.


    Has The Slab turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andy Bowyer?

    The narrator was fine and easy to listen to it was the story itself that was not well written.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyance at the skipping around, hard to follow, and I didn't like the way it transitions into each chapter. Also I did not find this book to be scary at all.

    "Spooky and Entertaining"

    This is the kind of book you'll probably forget all about upon completion, does it does its job of entertaining in the meantime and sometimes that's all you want. I learned quite a bit about the construction of houses in CA, also. Adequately read by the narrator.
