    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeOh man What did I just read What a convoluted mess this is I get it though This was released posthumously and I figure Laymon had some story notes that he never arranged into a cohesive plot and someone unwisely filled in the blanks and released it to make a few bucks What a shame I pat myself on the back for seeing it through but that's pretty much a couple of days I will never get back I need to read a real Laymon novel now to cleanse my palletteBest advice steer clear of this one

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeIntricately plotted horror thriller about the aftermath of a tragic accident that happens on a lake in Wisconsin in the late 60sThe event itself is made even worse by the fact that the victim comes from a family of homicidal lunatics 18 year old Berkeley hippie rad

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeRichard Laymon has always been a much revered horror author choosing as his style to employ horror shock effects and sexuality in his work Unfortunately The Lake is not a book worth praising Suspense is there but it’s scarce and frankly the reader doesn’t really care I couldn’t get over the bizarre plot the too unbelievable coincidences and I could loan even less forgiveness to the hideous characterizationIt’s a rule in the publishing world that the sign be kept to a minimum Also capitalizing words or sentences to show that the character is screaming or else is stunned is lazy writing if overused Here Laymon sins repeatedly and I almost feel that the book was only published and this was overlooked simply because he had already

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeI'm seriously hoping that The Traveling Vampire Show and Beast House are better than this Granted I've read that this is Laymon's worst book I hope so indeed Characters do completely idiotic things to get captured by the killer at one point I think Laymon just plain ran out of gas on where to go next Add in a killer chef and a middle portion that reads like THE BLUE LAGOON

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeCall me crazy but I loved this book I walked by it three times on three separate occasions and hesitated based on the lukewarm and bad reviews it got here but I'm happy I finally got the guts to trust my own instinct and I got it anyway Laymon writes some pretty gory intense and horrific

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeNote This is taken from my review on I've read and own most of Laymon's work I'm definitely a fan However this book didn't do it for meFor starters the plot felt very contrived and very loosely strung together There was too much going on to take it seriously One after another improbable events keep happening There was so much going on it seems like he could have fleshed it out into two or even three different books Instead he tried to tie it all into The Lake There were a few characters that by the end you're left thinking Why were they even included What was their purpose I didn't even go into the numerous plot inconsistencies and holes you could drive a truck throughSecondly the characters did things that were just absolutely ridiculous and reacted not how any sane person would react I'm sure you're familiar with

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeI can't fairly give this a rating but I will say what I think about it I won't rate it because I think it clearly remains unfinished My buddy thinks that Laymon just used this book to devel

    REVIEW ↠ The Lake The LakeReally awful Like really bad And i have a high tolerance for bad notice 2 stars not 1 The background behind this book is that apparently it was found in the desk drawer after the author died So I can only hope that either 1 it was in the process of undergoing MAJOR revisions when the author passed away or 2 it was meant as a brainstorming let me work out some thoughts piece as a way to get the idea juices flowing and was never meant to see the light of day The reason it got 2 stars instead of
