Description

Simon Wiesenthal's Nazi hunters, the Soviet People's Standing Tribunal on Fascist War Crimes and Allied war crimes tribunals such as the Nuremberg Trials This book is one of the best horror story , that I listened and read , ( when I couldn’t listen), this year. If everyone could understand the working of a psychopath's mind, we undoubtedly would be closer to insanity ourselves."

Ambientada en la actualidad (bueno, en los años ´80 cuando fue escrita), la caracterización de los personajes es impecable, especialmente me impactó Melanie Fuller, la anciana adherida a una aristocracia decadente y Saul Laski, un sobreviviente del holocausto, obsesionado por su experiencia de haber sido “usado” en los campos de exterminio. A complaint would be that the book did feel too long...did Simmons not hire an editor? This doesn't take away from the enjoyment of the book, but it could have done with some serious editing. I especially don't really enjoy "action" scenes where people are just running around for ages and hiding in different locations - this kind of thing is great for the big screen, but can be hard to follow when reading. Betsy Freeman Reavley is the author of Beneath the Watery Moon and A Worm in the Bottle. Carrion, her latest psychological thriller will be released in November 2014. A horror book with only one disemboweling and characters that redefine sadism. It was a very solid 4 stars and easily pushing 4.5. A truly fantastic book and now I want to read anything Simmons has written. Willi Borden, also known as Wilhelm Von Borchert, a Nazi Oberst, an Officer in the SS, later reinventing his identity as a Hollywood producer and powerful user of 'The Ability'.

Customer reviews

So amazingly many pictures of this and Simmons´ other horror novel, Summer of night, that feels like a reinterpretation of Stephen Kings´ It, stay in mind, always a sure sign that the quality of the stuff is so high that it permanently blows ones´mind away and leaves one, wasted, but very happy, afterward. When it comes Melanie, I have to say...what an evil bitch. I'm sorry if that offends you, but if you read this novel, you would know why I say that. To Use, and I capitalize "U" for a reason, people the way she did, ugh.....That is all I will say. She was entertaining, and I felt like I could hear her voice in my head when her story was being read. I just finished Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons here is the review I made up for it. I listened to the Audible Presentation which runs 39.5 hours unabridged. The performance is really well done.

This was my first Dan Simmons book and I had no real idea what to expect. I did know from friends warning me, to ignore the cover blurb comparing this to King's The Stand, so I was not disappointed to find the two are worlds apart, but both are epic in scope and flawlessly executed. A very interesting premise and a good story. The ending was also surprising and I appreciated it. This was a fine example of Mr. Simmon's horror writing abilities. The story is vast and exciting. The "vampire" Willi Borden ( SS Oberst Wilhelm Von Borchert) is quite the evil character and stands out for his particular level of cruelty.Dr Saul Laski, a psychiatrist who survived the holocaust in World War II, spent time in Israel, and who currently works at Columbia University. I despair at the rise of modern violence. I truly give in to despair at times, that deep, futureless pit of despair which Hopkins called carrion comfort."
