Read the first chapeter last night.  Can't wait for more.  John is such an interesting charecter.  BTW I love the British covers.  They're great to look at.

Price has just gone up to 9 dollars at Book Depository.  But they will be shipping soon.  Can't wait.

Can't complain about only a year's wait, but its still going to be a long time.

Just tried Five Guys for the first time yesterday.  Verdict:  its pretty good.  I got the bacon cheeseburger with normal fries.  BTW the regular sized fries were more than enough for one person.  I was satisfied with the whole experience, and love that they use fresh cut potatoes from Idaho for their fries.

Bookstore, I think you've identified why I like the book.  Its that old school horror like you find in Hitchcock's work.  I've never liked the overthetop gore fest you see in a lot of movies, but I love the fear and nervousness created in a well crafted story like serial killer.

Well this weekend I'm up to Idaho to rescue the book.  I'll have to be a little more careful on who I lend it out to, maybe my bishop's daughter. ;)

Shirts would be cool.  I imagine a red shirt based on the UK cover art, with large slashes on it.  It'd probably be my low key Halloween shirt for years to come.

I agree that this book isn't for young people. Personally I wouldn't recommend it to most people under 18.  My bro is 21 just got back from his mission (that might have something to do with it)  He likes sci fi, loves star wars.  I think his favorite books are the Redwall series, So i guess serial killers are a little different then cute little rodents playing king arthur.  I think he was just a little disturbed by some of the more graphic parts, in particular the stalkerish behavior and the scene  with the monsters wife.

I should add not all my family was opposed to it.  My 31 year old brother really enjoyed the book and he's a high school English teacher and the varsity basketball coach.  My 23 year old sister really wants to read it, but her husband doesn't want her to.  She loves to scare herself, but if she reads it i know she'll not be sleeping for weeks.

Can't wait for the next book.  I'll probably be ordering all these from overseas so I can get them ASAP.  But all this talk about the next books make me nervous.  I sure hope John doesn't go to the dark side, cause we crazy people need hope.

I ordered your book from the UK and had it shipped here to Utah.  Loved it; can't wait for the next.  My family is full of voracious readers so I took your book to the homestead in Idaho and a couple of my brothers read it and liked it.  Or so I thought.  I made a phone call home last week, shooting the breeze and all.  I brought up with my mother that my younger bro had read the book and liked it.  She said that's not what he told her.  He said that, "no one should be reading that stuff."  I was surprised, cause my fam has always loved this kinda weird stuff.  The X-Files was a Sunday night tradition growing up. 

Upon my brother's recommendation my mother threw the book in the trash. When I heard this I kinda lost it.  I told her that was a book I wanted to keep in my library for a long time, and that I had to special order if from England, and I left the book there for people to read, not so they could unceremoniously toss it in the trash.  If they wanted to trash they book they should buy their own to dispose of.

Luckily she was able to retrieve it from the garbage, and it hadn't been soiled.  I had to laugh at the whole thing.  Though you might want to know that a mormon housewife has seen fit to trash your book.  Maybe that means you've arrived, IDK.

Just finished your book.  Enthralled me this morning. The most unique book I've read in a long time. I don't wanna admit how much I related to John, but oh well, what can you do.  I'd recommend the book to strangers but not friends, but seriously I enjoyed it.  It reminded me how I used to feel as a kid watching the X-Files.  As someone who's insane, here's hoping to John getting a friend and the girl someday.
