This novel, like "Trader" by Charles De Lint, grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Laymon is a super writer of scary stories. A man finds that he can move all over the city by thought with the aid of a magic bracelet. It's a real page-turner with a good dose of sex. Check out Laymon's "Island" (a great read! People stranded on an island ).Island Also, read "Night in Lonesome October." Enter the strange night world of a college town when a young man is dumped by his girlfriend. Restless, Tom begins the wonder the town on foot late at night, and he runs into all kinds of mysterious characters and even finds a new love. A real grabber.Night in the Lonesome October Check out the "Trader," by Charles De Lint. An old man wakes up in a young man's body and vise versa. The only problem is that the young punk now has the old guy's money. Trader (Newford) Highly recommended! Also check out "Animal Hour," by Andrew Klavan. A woman goes to work and nobody recognizes her. Another real page turner. Animal Hour I also really enjoyed "Desolate Angel," by Chaz McGee. A detective is murdered and wakes up as a ghost.Desolate Angel (A Dead Detective Mystery)

Absolutely intense with touch of vanilla

This book is one of the best books I have ever read. Being an avid reader myself, I believe that should mean something. I have read a few other Laymon titles, and none of them have been as good as this one. Most are average horror novels. However Body Rides is something to be extatic about. The book its self is written in a unique, and original way that most find hard to replicate. This book is suspenseful, sexually provocative, and seems to get better as you read it. I love this book, and I recommend you give it a read through. Even if your not a horror fan, because if you like science fiction, fantasy, or romance, then this book is for you as well. 5 stars ha I give it 6.
Fun, Sexy, Scary

This is my first Layton book. I don't know if I will read another, but I loved this book. The villian was a little underdeveloped as a character, and the premise of 4 bullets and he didn't die, was a bit far-fetched. The author might have made Rasputin a bit more believable, more mortal. But, the characters were fun, likeable, and entertaining. The gratuitous sex was pretty great too. I would recommend it highly.

I was very impressed with this book. Very few disappointments come your way in this book. I couldn't get enough of this book. I was sad to see it come to an end, but satisfied with the ending. This is a book that will get read more than once, at least in my opinion. I hope this was helpful, if you haven't already bought this book and are reading this review for help on your decision to buy it or not, my response would be to buy it and read it for yourself. I think you will be pleasently surprised. I hope you enjoy it.
