I absolutely loved this book! In true McCammon style, The Five was a wonderful journey of mystery and nostalgia. It brought to mind the "magic" he wrote of in Boy's Life. Beautifully penned throughout, with always another puzzle waiting to be solved, I read it in a few evenings, with a big satisfied grin on my face the entire time. The whole book was wonderful, but the ending in particular was beautiful, reminiscent of how Stephen King's It finishes: on a note of sadness, enlightenment, contentment, nostalgia and… hope. Truly he is among the best authors of this era, more than equal in talent to Dean Koontz with his powers of description and fully as gifted a storyteller as Stephen King. This is a book that should not be missed!

This book reminded me of "Boy's Life"in some aspects.A group of misfit buddys on a journey of growing up and taking responsibly for their lives and the choices they made.A story about a band trying to survive in the music business while being stalked by evil. Interesting and a great read.

Format: Hardcover
McCammon has entertained me in the past but The Five was a long, meandering slumber-fest. As much passion as be brings to the subjects of struggling bands and the music industry, this was at best material for a much tighter novella. It was drawn out and at times there seemed to be bits literally grafted on like a ghostly tale about an old mining town. Meanwhile the main plot concerning an unhinged vet began well but soon grew contrived (I know the 'real' main plot was more mystic but it did not work). Personally, I found it difficult to get behind any of the characters in the band...they were all in a state of arrested development and not in an endearing or innocent way. The whole thing was bizarre and extremely "talky" so it lacked the thrills usually developed by the author.
