Awful, awful book -- nasty, terribly written, horribly misogynistic, with inane dialogue, poor pacing -- and yet weirdly, compulsively readable. I tore through 500 pages in almost one sitting. Laymon's real skill here is in the narrator's voice; it's a marvel to see how well he inhabits the thoughts of a sad sack horndog of an adolescent and slowly -- well, I won't spoil it. (I haven't read any other Laymon, and I sure hope the bad writing is deliberate.)

It'll make you feel icky though. Me, I'm reading some poetry and some Edith Wharton just to get the bad taste out of my mouth.… (mais)

This book was first published in 1986 and there are aspects of the novel that hold up pretty nicely. Then there are parts that are incredibly simple or cringe worthy or just laughable. The series of events that bring our main characters to the town of Malcasa Point range from searching for love to searching for money. Once they arrive, it doesn't take long before the action starts and people are dying.

Things I liked: the mystery and fate of the beast; it was explained nicely and worked well, covering for events in this book and the prequel beast house book. Also setting up the sequels. The pacing and action was pure Laymon, engrossing and a quick fun read. Things that didn't hold up well: Tyler's love story; too sappy and too innocent when compared to today. The reactions to the bloody mannequins; it's not turn of the 20th century. The involvement of the marines during the entire police procedures; I know they needed to be involved in the action but no way would that fly today. Overall, not one of Laymon's better works but take it for what it is, something written back in the early 80s and you'll enjoy it.… (mais)

DNFing at 200 pages. This book is very 90's. It has everything that would get an author canceled on twitter nowadays. It's trashy, and at first, interesting enough to keep going but I read almost half of this book and so far it's just teenagers being garbage people. I literally couldn't wait until these people got horribly murdered so I gave up because it didn't look like it was happening anytime soon.

El autor de "El sótano" descorre en su última novela el telón tras el cual se ocultan aberraciones indescriptibles. Cada semana, cuando se apagan las luces, el cine del pueblo proyecta una nueva película de terror. Las escenas, morbosas y sádicas, impresionan por su realismo. Los cuerpos desmembrados, las vísceras arrancadas, las decapitaciones, los banquetes antropofágicos, la sangre que mana a torrentes... todo produce una truculenta sensación de autenticidad. Los espectadores reaccionan histéricamente pero se consuelan pensando que son trucos cinematográficos...… (mais)
