THE FLIES FLEW IN AND OUT

THE WOODS ARE DARK
This and Richard Layman's The Woods Are Dark were published in 1981. I don't know which was written first. Ketchum mentions THE WOODS ARE DARK several times. Unfortunately both THE WOODS ARE DARK and Off Season are better books. This is still readable, but Ketchum may have ruined it by trying to make it more main stream. There are plenty of gore scenes, but it also gets bogged down with an attempt at character development.

STARING WAS RUDE
I have to agree with another reviewer that this is basically book one, rewritten. There are no new revelations. We don't learn how this family got this way or how long they have been this way, if they are a one and only or are there more? I am going to go on to the third book, The Woman, because it is Jack Ketchum.

TURTLE POWER
The book is dated.

- Jim "The Impatient" "Paid reviewers, after two weeks get 4-8 votes and have that power to strike unhelpful against others. Check their history! Your money!"

Not as good as Open Season but solid!

If you could sum up Offspring in three words, what would they be?

Never live there!


Any additional comments?

This book picked right up with Open Season and took off. Not was good, probably because didn't latch on to the characters as much. Definitely check i out!
