Albert is a young man with a fetish for cutting up young women; the slower the better. Half the book is spent following Albert on his cut-a-palooza across the US and the rest felt like a bizarre game of Clue with a slue of wacky characters trying to hook up with each other. To me, this book felt much more like 'gore erotica' than a horror novel. The book was a quick read with a few very gruesome scenes, but for the most part was disjointed and uninteresting. ( )

for me, Laymon is hit-or-miss. this one is a pretty decent-sized hit. it involves one of my favorite themes in the horror fiction genre, that of young serial killers, and it does it fairly well. we are disturbed and disgusted by the book's antagonist, and develop sympathy for the supporting characters. however, most of the scenes are derivative from lots of other scenes from lots of other books that came before this one. the novel nature of this book concerns the relationships that flower (or die) in the midst of the drama and horror.

i took half a star off because the ending was wholly unbelievable. Laymon can do unbelievable and get away with it in his pulpier stuff, but in something as straightforward and gritty as this tale, it falls flat on incredulous ears.

it's a fun, quick read when you're ready for some classic, nasty Laymon violence. pick it up. ( )

Another great read from Laymon. Very dark with a happy ending . ( )

OK....this just did nothing for me. I realize that the Laymon books I've read so far have followed the same pattern. Young people, spending most of their time naked and either killing people or running from someone trying to kill them. Oh, but we usually find time to have sex from time to time. Nothing wrong with that I suppose. But this one was just boring. ( )
