It is refreshing to read a novel about vampires in which vampires are scary monsters and not romantic sex symbols. This book is a good creepy read, and even though it is only the second novel King wrote, it is clearly one of his finest. The only flaw is that it goes on for a hundred pages after it logically should have ended. But it is a good, suspenseful page turner…and SCARY. Not a book for bienpensants or pollyanna sensibilities.
