great series

the sins of the past are catching up to a small town. for yearsinnocent people were sent to the blackstone asylum and treatedhorribly. now many years later, the evil has come back to hauntthe residents of the town. a gift has been sent to the daughterof the contractor who is supposed to be tearing down the building. it is a beautiful doll. but it is evil incarnate andmakes chucky look angelic. a very good book that all john saulfans must read.

Scary and Good......

This is the first John Saul book I read, so far I did read King's "Green Mile," and this is shorter and it is, very scary well anyways this is John's best keep up the good, work I look foreward to read his future books.

Well, *I* didn't find this book predictable or not scary...

I read the reviews of this book before I read it, and unfortunately, most of the reviews said it was "not scary", "predictable", and "unoriginal". Well, listen up, ya bunch of pea brains! I found this to be pretty scary indeed, very original, and not once did I have any idea of what was going to happen. Dolls creep me out, and little children who love them--obsessively--creep me out even more. This book, for me, at least, was very creepy. I am currently reading Part 2 of The Blackstone Chronicles, Twist of Fate: The Locket. So far, it is somewhat quiet, but then again, this fragile layer of ice could start breaking at any time...

Compared to Green Mile Saul's Blackstone MOVES!

Unlike King's serial, this book starts off with some definite action. Looking forward to what happens next and thoroughly enjoyed seeing old characters from earlier Saul's books. Pretty Good!

Creepy little story. I liked it.

John Saul starts out on a neat little journey here. The characters aren't totally realized but as this is essentially a short story I won't expect them to be. Unlike The Green Mile, with which this series will be unavoidably compared, there is not a plot that carries over to future volumes, but a setting with multiple plots. In any case I like both the story and the serial format and am looking forward to the next installment. If you forgive this work for not being The Green Mile, you'll find yourself enjoying it, I'm sure
