FLESH introduces a whole crowd of characters beginning with Eddie who is cruising back roads in his van for his next victim. Eddie ends up a bit crispy, but what happens after that is absolutely fascinating. Seems that dear Eddie was not acting alone; he was the host for something that compels humans to turn cannibal. The whole novel follows the leap of this "something" from person to person, hideous murders, creepy abandoned buildings with danger at every corner and one cop's relentless pursuit of the weird killer. Along the way, Alison becomes an unsuspecting target, and the reader is treated to scene after scene of nightmarish proportions. ("Ron lifted his head. A bleeding patch of his wife's flesh came with it...He calmly chewed. Then he reached back for the shotgun.")
FLESH is typical Laymon. It's gritty, it's fast-paced, it's filled with gore and sex. However, Laymon has a great feel for suspense and mystery; there are segments here that had me checking over my shoulder every few seconds. I got a bit fed up with reading constantly about Alison's dilemma over whether or not to have sex with her boyfriend, but all in all, this was one heck of a good read! Don't pick this one up if you are the least bit squeamish...there's a lot of graphic gore and quite a bit of sex (which isn't as graphic as the gore). But if you like good, solid horror, check this one out along with any of Laymon's other titles.
The story had a great throwback feel. It reminded me a lot of classic 80's horror I loved. Highly recommended for fans of horror from that era.
