Frank- I only read Odd Thomas and it didn't seem right to me. i see what you mean about it maybe not being proper horror. I didn't like its tone. Strangely enough I just finished The Passage and didn't know there would be a follow-up. So I timed it just right and went right into The Twelve and am about half way through . both are great. Have you read The Five by McCammon. I really liked it. -Julie
There was another X-Men Noir book - The Mark of Cain which I'm assuming from the title has some Sabretooth connection. I don't know if Wolverine Noir fed into this too or not. It was the original line-up (Cyclops, Beast, Ice-Man, Angel and Jean Grey) ... for your sake, I'm glad you don't remember much. I'm selling my copy.
Frank- I like your shelf. I like how you rate King's, Cell, high. I think it is a very underrated book by him. I like Cormac McCarthy and see you like The Road and No Country For Old Men. I rate Blood Meridian higher than you. I was shocked and fascinated by the ultra-violent poetic-prose. I didn't see Ghost Story by Peter Straub on your list...or missed it. it is my favorite by him. I rate World War Z higher than you. I like to look at peoples Plan To Read shelf and nudge then in the direction of ones I like. for you, I am giving you a shove toward Carrion Comfort and Metamorphosis. I see House of Leaves there. it is definitely wildly unique and one-of-a-kind but never quite won me over. but it is quite an experience. than you for listening. -Julie
