This review is from: The Light at the End (Kindle Edition)
A total blast of the 80's, and the best vampire novel I've yet to read.
I should say that I was not previously very interested in vampire stories, nor did I know what this book was about when I started reading it.
John Skipp just showed me, with no time to argue, that vampire stories can be really really good.
A good run through a great horror story, told from the viewpoints of several different characters, including the vampire himself... A vampire just recently turned, unaware of how to best utilize his available powers... A vampire that was pretty wretched even as a regular person, and didn't change for the better in death.
I loved every second of this book, as I have learned lately that is expected when I read something with John Skipp's name on the cover.
Every character in the book reminded me of people I know, and I felt totally along for the adventure during all of it.
If you like vampires, or if you never have previously, give this book a read, it may open your mind...
