I’ve never been a fan of horror novels, although this is somewhat hypocritical when it comes right down to it. I enjoy zombie novels, I like books tha..Show More »t deal with survival and aliens. But when it comes to ghosts, the paranormal, that sort of thing I’ve never been a big fan.
So it was with some trepidation that I picked up and listened to Robert Walker’s Serptine Fire. I’m a fan of Robert’s mystery novels and I AM a fan of Science fiction. I found the premise behind his book intriguing and I’m always willing to give a book a try.
In fact over the many decades that I have been reading, there have been less than ten novels that I simply could not finish, so I knew that would not be the case with this book.
I started listening to it and after about two hours I nearly stopped and went to listen to something else. It is not that the book was not well written or interesting, quite the opposite. The whole spontaneous human combustion thing creeped me out that bad.
