Douglas Flesh Gorgeous prose and exceptionally creepy descriptions make this book one of my favorite surprise discoveries The writing quality of this author clearly displays a well educated man, and without question, a very talented storyteller His vision and vocabulary is crisp and clean, submerging the reader deep into his very dark territory This book contains some brutal, unrelenting violence against characters you come to care for, and the author dispatches them in graphic detail without an ounce of remorse This is definitely something I don t see every day with your standard horror book especially mainstream authors on the bestseller list Perhaps this is the tradeoff Write predictable and comfortable stories and sell lots of books, or be original and sell fewer The atmosphere is very rich and you feel as if you are stranded on the island alon A rollicking entry into the Paperbacks From Hell re print series If your favorite part of creature creepers is watching people get eaten alive, this will satisfy your desires unlike any other Nearly every chapter includes a graphically described swarm of mutant cockroaches devouring human flesh A few innocent animals too, for good measure.
