Now Sherry is waiting. Ten minutes has gone, so has 20. She's not worried. What's another few minutes? Then she hears the noise from down the street. It might be a door slamming. It might be the backfire of a car. But Sherry thinks it sounds mostly like a gunshot.

Fright...With Excess Filler
Buried within this overlong, rambling tale is the horror equivalent of Martin Scorcese's film AFTER HOURS. A last-minute trip to a convenience store for condoms results in a series of random, bizaare events that turn increasingly violent. Laymon has a nice way with setting the scene but his pointless, rambling dialog is grating as are his icky obsessions with the female anatomy. Some judicious editing would have really made TONIGHT a far better listen/read. Gene Engene is an odd choice as narrator; his Wilford Brimley-like delivery is sometimes at odds with the very graphic nature of the material.

This book was completely demented and messed up. I kept waiting for it to go to a better place. It was on the verge of taking it to the next level, but it never did. It was as if the author is a pervert with some really demented ideas about sex. It creeped me out. Not in a "the book was eerie" kind of a way, but in a "I hope I never meet the author on a deserted road" kind of a way. Ewww! I feel like I need a shower.

A Bit Stronger Than The Usual Laymon
I've been a fan of Richard Laymon's work for probably 20 years! Many of the audiobooks that are available I have already read, but there are one or two - Come Out Tonight being one of them!
I had a good poke around the existing reviews before choosing this book. They aren't that glowing but I figured I know Laymon's work and I know the sorts of themes he goes for. So I dived into this one.
Without wishing to spoil anything, it started well - although Gene Engene (the narrator) does a good job, he does sound like he would be better placed narrating something far more factual and serious. This is by no means a deal breaker though! What I would say is that this book deals with rapey subject matter for a large part of the book and far more so than any other Laymon work that I have read previously. Again, not a deal breaker, but it does linger a lot throughout the book and is probably best left for the die-hard Laymon fans (myself included).
Although I enjoyed it, it's perhaps not a best book if it's your first Laymon read - go for Savage instead!
