The Scarlet Gospels by Clive Barker
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
Sorry to say but DNF.
I was really, really looking forward to this, but it just didn't do it for me.
I got to page 100 and still felt quite bored. Maybe some hardcore Barker fans will enjoy it but for me this was a bit of a flop.

The last hundred or so pages of this book were really good. So good that I was up reading until 2am! I just didn't want to stop.
However, getting the that last hundred pages was a really big struggle. I think had it been another writer, or if I hadn't already read the previous book in the trilogy I may have given up.
I'm glad I stuck through it because the ending really was good, but it was a looong journey getting there.
Just too much unecessary filler which seems to be occupying more and more of Kings books lately.

Cash & Hickman certainly have a thing for torturing people.
It's quite frightening really at how much they have obviously thought about this.
I don't know who wrote which bits, but I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
I actually cringed and flinched at some parts so job well done!
That was short and sweet (no pun intended).
This was a fun quick story. Brutal, but fun. Definitely unique. One way to kill someone is with their favourite addiction.
Good read, I enjoyed it. I'll be checking out more from Mr Cash.
