    The Loch

    a fairly standard entry into the Monster/horror genre, but might be of interest to anyone trying to get a feel for the author's writing.

    It's pretty standard monster fair really, just notable for the old man being from my point of view, a spectacularly nasty person who deliberately gets the people who save his life killed. The problem is I think you are supposed to sympathise with him, and that just made it really hard for me to get into the book.

    This isn't Spiderstalk or Dinosaur Lake. There's no fun, and the horror just doesn't really work for me when I think about it.

    Given the fact that Halloween is quickly approaching, I think that I need to step up my game when it comes to monsters and the horror genre in general, so this one will fit in nicely there. I like the simplicity of the title too, and I am intrigued to see what it has to offer.

    I've never been a really big fan of horror, unless maybe there is some science fiction woven into it somehow. For a horror genre book to really hold my attention, it would have to be seriously scary and very well written and believable. I don't know about this one, but I hope the other horror lovers like it.
