TWENTY YEARS GO BY FAST WHEN YOUR DEAD
The high rating, vampires and the mention of sex, drew me to this book. It started out great. I grew up in the 70's and fashion wise it was a strange period. I wore tighter than tight clothes, polyester, platform shoes (they were burnt orange and brown), bell bottoms and lots of pastels. The county was still reeling from going from conservative sexual values to free love. I went to the theatre seven times to see Saturday Night Fever. Of course their was Star Wars and Disco. So, a lot of this was like a class reunion for me. If your not from that time period, I got to wonder how much you will get out of this.
No Plot, short stories, boring
I was mainly hoping for something on the wrong side of the tracks of acceptable. The overblown reviews had me believing that was what I was to expect. I should have known when the author starts out by telling us how dark the book was that I was in for boring. A good looking girl does not have to tell you she is good looking, you know. A scary off the wall type book does not have to announce it. First two hours were great, but the story had no plot, was not scary (with the exception of the children Vampires) and seemed like a bunch of short stories.
Hard core horror fans should skip this.

This is another "killer" story by Christopher Buehlman! As has been his pattern so far, it is very different in flavor, though not in frights, from his past work. With Christopher Buehlman himself voicing the story, he pulls the reader into an underground view of New York City in the 1970s, bringing his characters to life with a flawless performance. The time period influences the characters, even if they themselves are not a part of that particular era. There are no "heroes" here, just the voice of a teen monster who is older than he seems. The overall story is a fun and scary ride, interspersed with comic moments, with enough twists to keep you delighted to the very end. It’s a fantastic, gruesome tale that will keep you turning the pages and sleeping with the lights on!
