I liked this books plot, very creepy. Love the cemetery setting, and of course loved the ending! The only things I didn't enjoy: It seemed like there was a lot of writing that wasn't needed in the middle of the book (a lot of stuff that didn't mean anything about the story line, but being a brian keene fan I had to finish it, and I'm happy I did. Other unpleasant thing: The animal abuse, I had to skip that section, but that's just me.

Hello, I think this book is just O.K. The story is about a monster, but I think the auther really was not talking about the monster in the book. Very sad book. Thanks.

This is better than the zombie novels Keene wrote, but I was expecting it to be more on the level of Dark Hollow. The characters seem more like adults than children and I think too much filler was put in (Seriously Katie had nothing to do with the story take her out and like forty pages go with her). The gore is good, there could have been more, but what was there entertained. If your new to Keene I'd recommend trying Dark Hollow instead of this, Ghoul is too linear. The plots predictable and the moment of realization is ridiculous, though this still kept me reading. 2.5 stars.

I have been a big fan of Keene since reading THE RISING. While GHOUL is my least favorite, it's better than a lot on the shelves. Simply put, it's Keene's version of CUJO. Do monsters really exist? In what form? Should we fear the supernatural or one another? The relationships between the three main characters and their respective relationships with their parents are, in my opinion, the most interesting part of the book. The scenes of domestic violence are quite disturbing. As always, Keene is an awesome writer with clear, descriptive prose; unfortunately, the ending is a bit of a rush job. Still, I am looking forward to Keene's next, DEAD SEA.
