AdvantagesGood cliffhanger ending for the next and last book. Very thrilling!

DisadvantagesA little too short, wanted more action!

Compare The Power of Five: Necropolis - Anthony Horowitz to other similar Horror Books »

similar by Price (less than 5 GBP)
Stephen King's claim to fame ; Superb atmosphere ; Sublime plot ; A vivid imagination that stretches all supernatural boundaries ; Probably responsible for some of the best horror films of the 70's and 80's
Some unessesary background in the first half ; Kubrik mucked up the story too much ; Could have been much more (*)
Story is there, but hidden amongst the drivel.
As above. (*)
The 1958 section is good
The modern day (80s) section is rubbish (*)
Coming of age story works well, nostalgic feel.
The Dark Tower element feels almost "tagged on". (*)
Compelling descriptive power, gripping storyline
Daunting prospect at 1,500 pages ... (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (T)
Hugely imaginative, untold possibilities and areas of exploration
Abrupt prose, loose ends, weak and rushed ending (*)
Great characters and setting, different style to King's other works
Fans may not like it as much as King's horror stories (*)
easy to read; revisits and updates old stories in fresh ways
not gripping; poorly thought through notes (*)
Excellent read
Don't start late at night (u won't put it down) (*)
Suck it and see
Some stuff will be lost if you don't know anything about Byron's life (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (H)
Great story and lead character
Too many non-humans gets confusing (*)
Exciting ending.
Grusome but not scary. (*)
A fine book from a fine British Author
None of Note (*)
Will keep you turning the pages, very indepth, a true horror as its based on fact
Very in depth, keep you up all night, youll be sleeping with the lights on (*)
Herbert at his best
None (*)
