About the Author

Robert R. McCammon is a popular horror fiction writer. He was born in 1952 in Birmingham, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. After college he spent a number of years working in advertising for bookstores in Birmingham, where he still lives. McCammon's first novel, "Baal," was published mostrar mais in 1978. He quickly joined the group of horror writers that includes Stephen King, Dean R. Koontz, and Anne Rice, who write suspenseful stories with modern-day settings. He has published over two dozen books to date. With the publication of "Boy's Life" in 1991, McCammon left behind the horror genre, noting that he finds real life horrifying enough these days. While there are some aspects of the supernatural in "Boy's Life," it is more a story of growing up in a small Southern town. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

DNF at ~35%. I loved the pastoral masterpiece that is Boy's Life but this story is too dumb to waste any more time on. I made it through the eye-roll inducing opera house scene before calling it quits.

Definitely entertaining. The writing itself lacks eloquence. Not much to read into, very literal (no pun intended).

this book is in desperate need of editing. it is way too long. the first quarter of the book or so does not pertain to the plot of the book. It establishes the element of illness for a character, which could have been done in another way, in much less time.
