I’ve read some of his books that were mildly disturbing and dark. He is a wonderful writer and I’m thrilled that he has chosen lighter fare for his latest release. I have bought the crap out of it for Christmas gifts this year. His royalty check is going to be significantly higher this quarter due to my purchases alone. This is a wonderful story, very well crafted and written. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest store and grab one or twelve.
