what book is in your hands right this second?
ITT i want to hear what your reading. Why your reading it. Would you recomend it to others. (ok in all honesty i'm just using this as an excuse to find out new authors i'm a book whore) I'll start.
Author: Richard Laymon
Genre: Splatterpunk (wiki it if you don't know what that means)
Favorite line so far(optional): Today the yacht exploded. *its the first line in the book and if thats not a hook i don't know what is.
Would you recomend it?: Several people on an pleasure cruise become stranded when their yacht explodes. then as they start to try to figure out whats going on someone starts killing the men. Laymon is who Stephen King and Dean Koontz read when they want to be scared. warning this is splatterpunk meaning anyone can get killed....HORRIBLY......and there are quite a few parts which will upset you to no end (ie bad things happening to good people.) but thats how Laymon writes. He writes to provoke a reaction. Sometimes that reaction is supposed to be recoiling in horror going "NO ONE CAN BE THAT HEARTLESS AND INHUMAN" also the book has a lot of humor in it.
So would i recomend it? Yes... if your looking for an author that will scare you and don't mind stuff thats (NSFW).
