Laymon has written some very good books....this is definitely NOT one of them. It is so boring that I use it to put me back to sleep if I can't. Nothing much ever happens save the first few chapters. After that it goes nowhere.....slowly, VERY, VERY slowly. There semms to be no middle ground with Laymon's writing, the books are either really good, or they are REALLY bad. Bite is the latter. And this book bites. Now that he's dead I'm sure they'll release every book this guy ever wrote, deserving or not.
