Blood Games

Richard Laymon was a heck of a writer. Whenever I read one of his books I find myself wanting to read more. Haven't read a book of his yet that I have't enjoyed.

Richard Laymon?

Before reading this book I'd never even heard of Richard Laymon. I picked this up at a book closeout store for $1 and figured for a buck it'd be an ok read. My expectations were far exceeded. It's been a LONG time since I've read something that captured my attention and had me so engrossed for hours. I didn't put the book down at all once I started reading! I've never found anyone besides Dean Koontz who gave me such an exciting read! I am running out tomorrow to look for more Richard Laymon books!

Page Turner!!

This is my first Richard Layman book and I loved it! I am planning on reading all his books from here on out. Blood Games gave me the creeps especially when the girls were messing around in the hot springs. I kept waiting for something to grab them or swim up on them in the dark. The whole book is like that, suspensful! Highly recommend this book, it is a page turner!! Couldn't put it down.


This was my 2nd Laymon novel, and I can all ready tell that no matter what critique he received, I will enjoy all of his writing. The book has a lot of flashbacks, which make the reader aware of Cora, Abilene, Finley, Helen and Vivian as seperate characters. Each one is different and unique, during hard times through out the book, the flashbacks show us their funny adventures at school, dating, trips, etc and make us root for them. This is one of those "lost in the woods" type of story, which I am beginning to like in scarry books. The girls are all alone, or so they think in a lodge in the middle of nowhere, when things start to happen. I do not wish to spoil anything, but let me tell ya, things arent what they seem, and there were a few twists and surprises. Even though the whole book was really "meaty" with good material, I totally loved the ending. Endings are hard to write, and I have been unimpressed or dissapointed way too many times with books. The end was scarry, they were expecting something, and waititng for it almost gave me a heart attack. Great read, although lenghty, over 450 pgs, but nothereless doesnt drag.

A Great Escape

"Blood Games" is a fun, fast-paced novel about a group of college graduates who decide to reunite for one week every year and engage in an adventure. This time it's Helen's turn to choose an the book says, "bad choice." This is great entertainment. If you enjoyed the film "Wrong Turn" or "Deliverence," this book is for you. I wouldn't be surprised if this novel influenced the scriptwriter of "Wrong Turn." Batty is an extremely interesting character...kind of freaked me out. I recommend this book, especially if you like to read at night and/or if you like late 70's-80's slasher flick plots.
