This was a great book. It only took me a few days to read. I could not put it down. It is great in scares, which usually a book can not get me to do. The violence to this book is very graphic. When innocent people died, I got scared, but when bad guys died, I felt proud of what Darkman did. Part of the novel is about a crazy man who burns women, who he thinks are witches at the stake. When he tries to do that to Julie Hastings (Darkman's previous girlfriend), Darkman sticks his fingers through his neck and rips his head off. That awful man deserved it. The characters in the novel you grow to hate, get what they deserve. This is a great book of action, suspence, and horror. Read it!
