    Story
    "Richard Laymon at his finest."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. The narration of this book did not work for me. I realized about 1/2 way into it why. The cadence and voice reminded me of the movie Christmas Story.


    What other book might you compare The Traveling Vampire Show to and why?

    Hell Hollow by Ronald Kelly.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I had read this novel when it first came out and am happy to say that it is just as good today.

    "Hmmm"

    Read all of Layman's books long ago and loved them......hated that this narrator gave a 14 year old boy the accent of a 50 year old Brooklyn cabbie...audible is great done well and ruins a book when not thought through.....Love the author hate the narrator...

    I appreciate & relish a really great book! I do not, however, enjoy being indoctrinated into an authors personal beliefs or "feelings".

    "A Book for Horny teenagers!"

    Every chapter, it seemed, was about a boy getting layed. I was very disappointed reading this book. I read another by thus author and thought I'd branch out, but I will not be getting anymore. I tried..
