    I wanted to LOVE this book I really did When I read the back cover, I was hooked The premise sounded awesome a group of college friends in the 1960s who fall under the spell of a new age guru, and together they engage in a strange ritual which brings them into contact with otherworldly beings which shape the course of their lives thereafterAnd that ritual they conduct is undoubtedly the best part In fact, it is pretty downright awesome The creatures beings that each of them encounter t I wanted to LOVE this book I really did When I read the back cover, I was hooked The premise sounded awesome a group of college friends in the 1960s who fall under the spell of a new age guru, and together they engage in a strange ritual which brings them into contact with otherworldly beings which shape the course of their lives thereafterAnd that ritual they conduct is undoubtedly the best part In fact, it is pretty downright awesome The creatures beings that each of them encounter they are a...

    I ve never encountered Peter Straub before and if it was not for the cautionary words of Maciek, who informed me that this was his most non scary output, i would probably not run out to seek his alternative works My motivation for purchasing this book was quite shallow there was a quote with the word terrifying followed by the name Stephen King Ah, i thought, there s a man who knows scary If it made Mr King crap his pants then that is high praise indeed All i can say is that maybe Ste I ve never encountered Peter Straub before and if it was not for the cautionary words of Maciek, who informed me that this was his most non scary output, i would probably not run out to seek his alternative works My motivation for purchasing this book was quite shallow there was a quote with the word terrifying followed by the name Stephen King Ah, i thought, there s a man who knows scary If it made Mr King crap his pants then that is high praise indeed All i can say is that maybe Steve was havi...

    A DARK MATTER was a very disappointing book Uninteresting characters and Straub fails miserably to suspend disbelief The story becomes absurd toward the end.

    I get that not everyone will like this book But it is, in my opinion, one of the highest works of art that I ve read in a very long time.The end of the book, like something written by Gene Wolfe or, for that matter, David Wong , doesn t actually happen at the end of the book, but previously And so you may come to the last few pages andfeel as though you ve been cheated out of a proper ending.All I can say is that this book is not for you I plan to study and reread this It is magnifice I get that not everyone will like this book But it is, in my opinion, one of the highest works of art that I ve read in a very long time.The end of the book, like something written by Gene Wolfe or, for that matter, David Wong , doesn t actually happen at the end of the book, but previously And so you may come to the last few pages andfeel as though you ve been cheated out of a proper ending.All I can say is that this book is not for you I plan to study and reread this It is magnificent view spo...

    TERRIFYING, says Stephen King on the front cover of this paperback Put this one HIGH ON YOUR LIST Well, I can honestly say this book was neither terrifying, nor will it ever receive the distinct honors of getting anywhere near the top of any of my listsexcept maybe the top of the worst books I have ever read list.Clearly King was paid a lot of cash to write that blurb, and obviously he and Straub have some kind of weird bromance thing going on since they teamed up for the Talisman w TERRIFYING, says Stephen King on the front cover of this paperback Put this one HIGH ON YOUR LIST Well, I can honestly say this book was neither terrifying, nor will it ever receive the distinct honors of getting anywhere near the top of any of my listsexcept maybe the top of the worst books I have ever read list.Clearly King was paid a lot of cash to write that blurb, and obviously he and Straub have some kind of weird bromance thing going on since they teamed up for the Talisman which was so opp...

    What a let down I have loved every Peter Straub book I have read them all up until this one A Dark Matter simply goes nowhere The characters are uninteresting and even a bit annoying at times, and the constant rehashing of events through the eyes of different characters just gets boring in the long run There also never seems to be a real driving force or need to find out what really happened, and when we do, we are left with oh, I read all this for that Here is the main story line from What a let down I have loved every Peter Straub book I have read them all up until this one A Dark Matter simply goes nowhere The characters are uninteresting and even a bit annoying at times, and the constant rehashing of events through the eyes of different characters just gets boring in the long run There also never seems to be a real driving force or need to find out what really happened, and when we do, we are left with oh, I read all this for that Here is the main story line from Publishe...

    Set largely in the 60 s in Madison, Wisconsin, this latest novel by Peter Straub is a wonderfully strange ride, part mystery story, and part supernatural horror tale A group of teenage friends become infatuated and taken in by the charismatic and older college guru, Spencer Mallon, who insists on performing a ritual ceremony off the campus grounds, in order to provide them all with such life changing enlightenment Instead, one of their group is brutally killed and another vanishes, seemingly, Set largely in the 60 s in Madison, Wisconsin, this latest novel by Peter Straub is a wonderfully strange ride, part mystery story, and part supernatural horror tale A group of teenage friends become infatuated and taken in by the charismatic and older college guru, Spencer Mallon, who insists on performing a ritual ceremony off the campus grounds, in order to provide them all with such life changing enlightenment Instead, one of their group is brutally killed and another vanishes, seemi...
