    I assume you're referring to the four early novels?
    Tom, what kept you?
    They are amazing books, especially Rage and The Long Walk.

    Enjoy!

    It's good, huh? I was thinking about buying a signed edition of a Koontz book since I don't believe I've ever had one. I saw this I think on VJ Books just tonight.

    The Long Walk is the most disturbing book I have ever read. Sticks with me to this day. Maybe it only resonated that way with me-but I can't forget it!

    It's ok. I think I know where Koontz is going with this book and that's not a good sign, as usually I'm way behind the author.
    Oh well, it has been years since I read a Koontz novel, I'm sure I'll finish it.

    "Carrion Comfort" by Dan Simmons. First Simmons for me. I picked it up from the library because Stephen King called it one of the three greatest horror novels of the twentieth century.

    No, it is not just you, it sticks with me too. It is my favorite short story of all time.

    I haven't read this one. I checked out my county library system and of course they do not have it. I'm guessing based on your comment this book is purchase worthy...right?

    I'm reading The Wave by Susan Casey, a nonfiction book about the increasing occurence of giant waves in the ocean. She's alternating chapters between the scientists studying these waves, and Laird Hamilton and some other surfers who seek them out to ride. It's fascinating, and in some place it's absolutely terrifying.

    I'm just about to finish that on Audiobook. Good narration. It's been a long time since I've read it, but it was always my favorite of the Bachman books. And yes, you're right about it being disturbing. Some days it seems that reality is only 2 steps away from this or The Running Man.

    It's really good, so far. I'm about 200 pages in. Another bonus for me is that one of the settings is Charleston, SC, which is my hometown. Kind of a blessing and a curse because I find myself getting distracted by the locations and directions at times.

    Finished 'The Long Walk' earlier and i really liked the book, but i also wanted more, what happened to the main character at the end arghhhh. Also 'Rage' was good, but not as good as 'The Long Walk'. I hope the other 2 Bachman Books are as good!
