Graham Masterton is one of my favourite authors who captures my interest by creating chilling situations which are so far removed from everyday life, I am captivated from start to finish Garden of Evil is no exception. I love the Jim Rook series but this book felt rushed and I didn t enjoy it as much as the other books This was ok I think I d have liked it better if I d read it, as opposed to listened to the audiobook, because I could have skimmed over the bits of questionable writing such as why did we need to know precise information about completely irrelevant stuff like the colour of Jim s chinos And why are the students usually referred to by their full name I
JIM ROOK MEETS PARADISE LOSTIf you are familiar with the Jim Rook novels, you basically know what to expect, except that there isfar reaching destruction in this one than in the previous ones,along the lines of Masterton s supernatural disaster novels, like BLIND PANIC and MANITOU BLOOD In this one, Rook s special education students are obsessed with their personal concepts of Paradise, influenced by a weird and sinister student As usual in Rook novels,
This is my first Jim Rook novel, and I must say, I didn t like it at all Rook isn t a very compelling or likable protagonist and the villains are cardboard cutout cliches Even worse, Rook and other characters do some really stupid, unbelievable things and that just made me dislike this book even . DNF.The lack of emotional nuance for the main character made me put this down He finds a girl and eight cats nailed to a ceiling and has no reaction Really Not a character I want to spend 250 pages with. Graham Masterton books are great i finished a terrible book never again. Decent. Not going to lie, my least favorite of the series For those who read this first, not a good example of the entire series.My two cents at least.
