Lawrence Block is widely known for his best-selling mysteries. Here, in an early work that is now reissued, the Edgar and Shamus Award-winning author offers a provocative fantasy that has changed the lives of many readers.
Ok, it was worth reading. It held my interest.
He's a good writer with a unique way of describing things.
Sometimes his writing style is odd, cruel, and raw, sometimes cold and frightening.
The characters were vivid and unusual. They could be kind and humorous, some were creepy and vicious.
I see a likeness to The Stand, by Stephen King.
The gripe I have is - I wanted a stronger ending, a bigger payoff, a resolution.
Another great novel by Lawrence Block. Interesting storyline and riddled with humor throughout. A great story teller and great character development.
