Finished The Rising by Brian Keene. With the ending – which really is not an ending, a sequel is no surprise. Think the end of Song of Susannah here.
A movie based on this book would have to be R and maybe even NC17 if they stay true. It is ultraviolent and filled with black humour.
Enjoyed the book quite a bit. Keene is a definite player no doubt. Reading this reminded me of when I picked up and read Carrie for the first time. I have that same vibe going where I thought this Stephen King is worth keeping an eye on. Then came Salem’s Lot and watch out. Is Keene up to challenge? We’ll see with the sequel.
Back to Thomas Covenant White Gold Wielder – just in time for next month’s Runes of the Earth!
