What to even say about this book This is a book that brings the worst nightmares to life The beginning of the book started out great and slowly it got darker and darker and down right disturbing I am the type of person that can t start something and not finish it, so I had to continue, but it was tough, as I had no interest in readingThis may be someone else s cup of tea, but not mine I don t even know how the author came up with the scenarios in this book. This book is very special to me because John Saul was my first experience with a horror novel The Homing is one of the first John Saul books I read, which I found when the bookmobile would visit my town once a month I would stay up late reading these books and then be so scared that it was hard to sleep I have had fond memories of this novel over the years and I m happy to be able to re read it I remembered many of the scenes and I had a lot of fun.The most annoying thing to me in the writin This book is very special to me because John Saul was my first experience with a horror novel The Homing is one of the first John Saul books I read, which I found when the bookmobile would visit my town once a month I would stay up late reading these books and then be so scared that it was hard to sleep I have had fond memories of this novel over the years and I m happy to be able to re read it I remembered many of the scenes and I had a lot of fun.The most annoying thing to me in the writing was the use of the redundant phrases she, herself and he, himself I had previously rated The Homing five amazing stars based on my first memories I have dropped the rating to 4 stars John Saul has a special place in my reading life He is a great and kind man, who has always appreciated his fans I hope he will still write somein the future The last novel he published was The House of Reckoning in 2009 It was okay I felt like it left a lot of questions unanswered, though For example What happened to the infected coyote Why did Julie get all distended and disgusting Was it just because she was the queen, and all queens of insects are bigger than the others Why was she the queen Was it b c she was infected first Why were the infected chicks always naked, but the dudes weren t If the other girl Sarah would ve gotten to the group, would ve she been another queen, or something else b c It was okay I felt like it left a lot of questions unanswered, though For example What happened to the infected coyote Why did Julie get all distended and disgusting Was it just because she was the queen, and all queens of insects are bigger than the others Why was she the queen Was it b c she was infected first Why were the infected chicks always naked, but the dudes weren t If the other girl Sarah would ve gotten to the group, would ve she been another queen, or something else b c Julie was the queen Why didn t Carl I think that s his name take his hatred and rage out on his sister, since she was the cause of it, instead of on others Did anyone even notice Vic Costas was missing after the ants ate him Why would Carl kill everyone else, but not the doctor I mean, he had the means AND he told her who he had killed Why did he throw just spiders in as opposed to scorpions or ants, thereby making it impossible for her to tell anyone if anyone came to try to save her which happened So very many questions this book made, but never answered for me
