I'm only about one hundred and fifty pages into Dan Simmons' 1989 book Carrion Comfort so I probably shouldn't jinx myself so early (I've still got four hundred plus pages to go) but I can't help it - it's so good! Any fans?
I was thinking the other week that it had been far too long since I'd been scared, truly scared, and the movies just have not been doing it so it was time to read a scary book. I wasn't sure what to read - and if y'all have any good rec's to make, do so, I want more! Always more! - but I searched around and saw some praise for Carrion - Stephen King, never one prone to hyperbole (kidding), called it one of the top three scariest books of all time - and so I snapped it up. And sure enough, so far, knock on wood, it's terrific.
Like I said I'm only 150 pages or so in, but why hasn't anybody turned this thing into a miniseries? So far it seems like it'd be a winner. It has old people chase scenes! How could it go wrong?
