This is a fantastic coming-of-age horror story in the vein of Robert R. McCammon's _A_Boy's_Life_, Ray Bradbury's _Something_Wicked_This_Way_Comes_, Dan Simmon's _Summer_of_Night_, and Stephen King's _It_ and _The_Body_. It's funny, frightening, and wrenching, and Bob Barnes brings the characters to vivid life. I am adding Richard Laymon's other work to my to read list, and will be watching for more narrations by Bob Barnes.
Most of the Richard Laymon books ive read are horror/gore/wince inducing stories of terror.This was a pleasant break from the usual "wth" bloodfests, and actually had me engrossed in the mystery of a fairground with a dark past.The fairground ties in several terrible moments in the small town, and the main trio of young adults are well aware of the dangers.The insanity of the true intentions of the evil is too unbelievable but also a real type of threat among certain groups of mentally ill believers.Im hoping for an additional book/sequel to this concerning the 'present day' status of certain characters or even how the fairgrounds have changed or drawn more evils to it.This is NOT for the weak of heart and you might as well toss your prudish preferences out the window before beginning.Ill recommended this many but not family because= upbringing (lol)
