ConsNone.

It’s probably going to be quite painful to write a review of Richard Laymon’s The Glory Bus, since I hear it’s the last of his posthumous manuscripts that will be published. Needless to say, after his sad and untimely death, it has been a real treat to see a steady stream of his works still...

Proexcellent read, very gripping.

Consnone

This book has to be my favourite book by Richard Laymon so far. It begins with a murder of a husband and the kidnapping of a wife which is very gripping and kept me on the edge of my seat and i was quite shocked when the kidnapper ended up dead as you believe the story is all about him and his...

“A good read”

ProAnother brillian book by this author

ConsNot keen on ending

Richard laymon (the cellar, island and the stake) has done a brilliant job up until the end which i thought was poor. The glory bus was brought out in 2005 and you can get it at most major bookshops for about £6.99. You could probably get in cheaper on the net. The book revolves around two main...

“Fun, but not a fan favourite”

published 05/05/2006

ProA Fun Laymon Book

ConsNot a Classic Laymon Book

As an avid Laymon fan (I own over 30 of his books) I was a little disappointed with this book. It's certainly not a terrible book and I did still enjoy reading it but I don't think it's a Laymon classic. At times it does feel a little like the story lacks direction, and some random encounters...

Product Information : The Glory Bus - Richard Laymon

Manufacturer's product description

One moment Pamela is a newly-wed with a loving husband and a comfortable home. The next, she's the prisoner of a killer who has lusted after her since high school - and now intends to make her his slave. Norman wouldn't say boo to a goose, so he's never going to throw bad-boy Duke out of his car or say no to Boots, the hyper-sexed hitch-hiker who tags along for the ride. Together the lawless pair take him on a wild journey that looks like it's heading straight for the electric chair. But when the glory bus comes along there's hope of salvation for all. Pamela and Norman are just two who climb on board. They don't know their destination is the furnace heat of the Mojave Desert, where a special welcome awaits the weary traveller. It can't be worse than what's gone before. Or can it? See all Product Description
