While "Bloody Valentine" is just over 400 pages, it's relatively fast-paced and suspenseful (though a lot of time is spent channeling Joshua), thanks to George's easy-to-read, terse writing. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect from this book when I first picked it up. By the title and cover alone (blood in the title and on the cover, seeping out of a woman's eyes like tears, mirrored in a descending knife blade), I expected a run-of-the-mill slasher, especially coming from Zebra, not that I'm knocking them. In fact, I support any publisher that still prints horror. It's just hard to find anything original published after the '80s. ("Bloody Valentine" was published in January 1994.)
Anyway, after a couple chapters into it, I couldn't put the book down. I was certainly impressed. "Bloody Valentine" is one of the few exceptionally-written supernatural horror novels that I've read in a long time. It's well worth your time and money if you're into this genre.
