    Joe Hill: Heart Shaped Box

    Heart Shaped Box and/or 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill. I read the 1st and reading the 2nd now. I just wondered if you liked them or not? I did and I am, and hope he writes more.

    Jack Ketchum: The Girl Next Door

    I agree this was a disturbing book to read. More so because the basis of the story is true.

    "Dumbledore Is Gay" says Rowling

    It is not a question of if Dumbledore is gay or not, and so what if he is, it does not, for me anyway, detract from who he was in the story. My question was what was Rowlings point. For what ever reason she has, she stirred something up. The Harry Potter Saga was over. Everyone more or less...

    the lies of locke lamora

    I tried to read this book too. Don't think I got as far as page 50. It just didn't grab me. Maybe I'll try it again.

    "Dumbledore Is Gay" says Rowling

    You know that was my thought. What was the point. :confused: The story had been completed. We all were moving on. I think this was a poor move on Rowlings part.

    Jack Ketchum: The Girl Next Door

    Ladies Night!!!Women suffer adverse reaction to chemical spill in New York City. Men/boys beware! Ketchum is definately a grab you by the throat author. As far as TGND, the book was good enough for me. Think I'll pass on the movie. Read the story in Crime Library also. My own mental images...

    I recommend this book!

    Just turned the final page of a very satisfying suspense novel. HEARTSICK by CHELSEA CAIN. Once you start you won't put it down. Female serial killer, her victimized hero cop, sassy newspaper reporter and a new serial killer on the loose. If this is your kind of read pick it up soon.

    I so agree with you. Bradbury completely changed my view on literature. From reading gothic romance (Victoria Holt), horror(Poe. Lovecraft, Hawthorne, King) to Farmer, Asimov, Heinlein. Even tho my reading preferences have changed to mostly fantasy of all styles Bradbury will always be my...

    Summer of '75 sitting bored at a friends house found a paperback under her bed. Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes I"ve haven't been the same since. This book opened the doors to worlds I did not know existed.
