I'm currently reading "Cell" by Stephen King. It hasn't hooked me in as quickly as some of his other books have ("'Salem's Lot" and "The Stand" will always be favourites of mine), but it's still really good... and I like the idea of the overall story. Imagine a crazy/zombifying virus could be passed through mobile phones! This is definitely horror appropriate for today
"Heart Shaped Box" by Joe Hill is very good and pretty new (it was released last year I think... or the year before. "The Manitou" by Graham Masterton is an oldie but goodie and well worth reading if you haven't already.
Earlier on this evening I finished "Cell". I had been warned on another forum (the Loucifer Speaks forum to be precise) that the ending was a bit of a disappointment. In a way I guess it was (although I really don't know what I would have done instead), but the good thing about "Cell" is the thing that's good with all King books. No matter what the ending is, you know that you're going to have a hell of a ride getting there. Stephen King is a master story teller.
Anyway, since "Cell" is now sitting comfortably on my bookshelf, it's time to start a new book. Out of my 'To Read' pile I've picked "The Secret of Crickley Hall" by James Herbert. I've heard some great things about this book, so I can't wait to dive in....
....if only I could manage to tear myself away from the internet! lol
I'm reading "blood red" curtesy of Lou (thanks mate )
I'm a bit confused cos I read an online review of it and cant quite understand how they are going to add the bits that were mentioned in the review into the book as I cant see how they would add it to the part of the storyline I've already read?
