4.0 out of 5 stars "Your wife's a Bigfoot isn't she, Gus?" October 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At one point in time, I believed in the legend of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, The Abominable Snowman, etc. But after watching the show, Finding Bigfoot, I don't think they exist. I mean, after all, why haven't we found bones? We've found the bones of dinosaurs, but not Bigfoot? Heh.

But I digress...

I enjoyed Jennifer Minar-Jaynes first book and was happy when she announced her participation in this one. I had not read any Eric Brown before this.

The story follows Jennifer, who is heading to her late father's cabin in Boggy Creek. She is bringing along her best friend, Maya. Jennifer's mother would never go to the cabin and rarely allowed her to visit her father there. We find out that there have been a series of grisly murders and unsolved disappearances in tiny Boggy Creek. And the sheriff doesn't seem to care. What's even more alarming is that the pattern is usually the murder of male victims and the disappearance of the female ones. Hmmm, could there be some breeding going on? And are the townsfolk in on it? Maybe even offspring?

If you're a fan of the horror genre, then this book will not disappoint. Is it campy? Somewhat. Do the characters make the same stupid mistakes a lot of characters make in horror flicks? Absolutely. BUT, it's so well-written that you can gloss over it and enjoy the storytelling. I'm definitely going to check out more books by Brown and will look forward to more from Minar-Jaynes.

Recommend for horror fans.

This isn't your normal Eric S. Brown Bigfoot story. Normally, his Bigfoot tales have a drive-in movie feel that manages to entertain and keep you on the edge of your seat. The tone and style of this book is different, delving into darker territory. If his normal Bigfoot fiction could be considered comic-book fare, then Boggy Creek is horror in the strictest sense, going heavy on atmosphere, savagery, and terror. That may be due, in part, to the talents of Jennifer Minar-Jaynes, who brings an ample dose of suspense to the story, complementing Brown's own affinity for all things Bigfoot. Together, the authors create a tale that is bleak, horrific, and breakneck in its pacing, meshing their styles together in a way that is seamless and complimentary. Check this one out if you enjoy monster fiction, horror, suspense, or just a good ol' fast-paced read!

The book is based on the movie with some much needed fill in the spaces. The movie was one sided and Campy. The book on the other hand has different aspects including what was in the movie. I could watch the movie and see the word from the screen jump right out of the book, but then there is filler in the book that is a big bonus and tells another side of the story from a different advantage. The way Eric used his unique ability to bring the Monsters to life and to draw you into the story truly saved this story.
Heck of a job, Eric.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Boggy Creek Should Be October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't seen the film this book is tied to, but I can only hope for its sake that it's as good as this. Eric S Brown has been churning out Sasquatch style horror for a while now, and he only seems to get better as he goes. This story has him stepping away from his own universe and into the Boggy Creek legend that seems to have influenced his writing somewhat.

The monster and its actions are handled well, the horror scenes framed with that same ESB style action his fans have grown to expect, and all in all it's a another hit out of the park from Mr. Brown. It also seems to be just a tad longer than some other Brown books, and it's nice to see him stretch out and enjoy himself.

Great book, and just the way that a Boggy Creek story should read.

(Note - I was provided an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion)

This is a good and quick read. A little longer than some other novellas I've read which is a good thing. Though I wasn't too fond of the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down! September 4, 2013
By KEG
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great piece of work from Eric S. Brown. I have not seen this movie yet but the novelization of it is great. The passion that went in to this book shows. I don't know how he does it but the way he tells a story is perfect. No endless backstory's, no endless dialogue, just a good story that gets to the good stuff, suspense, blood, gore, and entertaining characters. Brown is at it again with his style of gruesome horror like always. He grabs you, sucks you in, and doesn't let go. I was not able to stop reading this one until I finished it. If you love horror, and Bigfoot then this is a must read. The book is just the right length as well, like Goldilocks said "Just right". Do yourself a favor and buy this title already you will love it, I know I did!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining January 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I will give the author some points for it being suspenseful. It is also well written. However, the college students party is very cliche. As is the sherif who doesn't want to know about the monster.

It is was it is and not too expensive. I was entertained by it.

4.0 out of 5 stars BIGFOOT WALKS TONIGHT -- TAKE II January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what it is about Bigfoot, but I just can't get enough of the big oaf. When I was a kid, I remember watching the infamous Patterson-Gimlin video. I was going to be the one who found the irrefutable proof that Bigfoot existed. I said the same thing about the Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster, too. To this day, I still find the legend of Bigfoot fascinating, and yes, I watch Finding Bigfoot, I'm not ashamed to admit it. And that's why when Eric S. Brown comes out with a new book I'm usually one of the first ones to buy it. The man writes Bigfoot. Not the shy creatures hiding out in the woods that we've all heard about, but vicious, man-hating, man-eating terrors of the deep woods.

This outing, Brown teams up with Jennifer Minar-Jaynes to give us Boggy Creek, The Legend is True, a novelization of a film by the same name, which I haven't seen yet -- but it's on my list. Brown doesn't waste any time getting to the meat of the matter, so to speak. Boggy Creek opens with a rather nasty attack on a young couple parked in the woods. Casey Guthrie is savagely mauled and his girlfriend, Brittany, is among the missing. Missing? Yeah, Brown finally went there without actually going there. Seems that's the MO of these Bigfoot attacks -- the men are killed, the women abducted. You do the math. Anyway, back to poor Casey. It's a powerhouse opening to a fun read.

As it turns out, Casey and Brittany aren't the only victims of these random animal attacks. Yeah, you heard me. Seems the local sheriff knows what going on, but refuses to do anything about it because of some misguided sense of duty. It's his deputy, Mark Klein, who finally grows a pair and decides enough is enough. He and his redneck friends decided to hunt the beast down.
