Summary The Vanishing

In Beverly Hills a wealthy CEO goes on a bloody rampage and videotapes the slaughter He leaves behind a chilling cryptic message This is where it beginsMiles away an alarmed mother receives from her estranged hu. I have reached a point in my book collection that my TBR to be read list is uite large and trying to decide what to read next is sometimes paralyzingly overwhelming and next to impossible Do to this simple fact I have taken to looking at the reviews of other readers to help narrow down what I read next I don t mind a terrible book every now and again but having a string of them back to back is beyond painful And unacceptableSo normally I tend to steer clear of reviews or other talk about a book I m thinking of reading I hate spoilers that ruin a book just as much as I hate too much hype or trash talk about a book When I read I want to be surprised After narrowing my choices down to 3 or 4 books I got on Goodreads and looked at the reviews for each All but one of the books averaged 4 stars The one that didn t was this one The Vanishing by Bentley Little It only received 3 stars and all the reviews I saw were 1 to 3 stars I thought that a little odd since generally Little is a great writer in my opinion Not Pulitzer Prize winning but great none the less Upon completion of reading this book I must confess that I m a little shocked by the reviews of other readers Many have complained that there was little continuity between the characters or events and that it was just a thrown together mess of horror elements that made little sense Others reported that it was nothing than a book about male dominance due to sexually explicit material And at least several others disliked it simply because they didn t understand the title they didn t understand who vanished To each their own and certainly to each their own opinion However none of those complaints made any sense to me because that s not accurate of the story at all First the book title isn t about people vanishing it s about wild nature and the creatures in it that are vanishing I will agree though that the subtitle is a bit confusing and perhaps out of place In fact it s like a tag line still doesn t make sense than a sub title so probably a poor marketing move thereOverall the story is good and moves at a fast pace Its thought provoking in regards to nature and man s obsession with and gold And yet it s still entertaining too For those who don t like sex scenes or talk of anatomy you should avoid this book

The Vanishing

Sband an unsettling letter strained with bloody fingerprintsAnd all across California children are falling victim to a monstrous change and their parents to a mounting fearSocial worker Carrie Daniels and report. My God what an utter mess this book wasIt shouldn t really surprise me since I ve tried other Bentley Little novels before and didn t particularly enjoy them but I think this one takes the cake and convinces me that I won t be reading any of his other books againIt s not that the writing itself was bad Actually in the horror spectrum Little s writing skill is better than a lot of his fellow authors He s good with details and when the story isn t bogging down in graphic over described and oft repeated sex scenes it s fairly interesting I even liked most of his characters and while they made dumb choices sometimes they were realistic But that s about it Everything else about The Vanishing is flat out horrible Aside from the fact that the title makes absolutely no sense the overall plot fails miserably as well No spoilers here but what do dead animals misshapen creatures bizarre sexual urges and violence have in common Apparently nothing All of these things are mentioned and touched on in The Vanishing but Little never really manages to make them come together in any coherent structure Not to mention the numerous and frustrating plot holeslike those damned dead animals As far as I could get out of this Little took all the horror tropes he could muster threw them in a blender and just slapped what came out onto a page And what is his fascination with sex And not the nice sensual erotic kind No Bentley Little loves to make as many mentions of gross illicit intercourse as possible It s not just this book either Both The Resort and The House the other 2 I ve read of his were basically the exact same kind of thing I m all for sex and nudity in books and movies but it s totally tarnished and ruined hereI m done with Bentley Little now 3 books have proved to me that he s not going to get better and he s going to keep suandering his talents writing drivel like this instead of trying something he could really excel at I don t even know why Stephen King endorses this guyunless he was paid a huge amount of cash to do it

    The book was definitely bizarre but I loved it The sexual moments and bore where there a lot could have been toned done but at the same time I believe that was the horror Not the monstors themselves but the hold they had on seemingly normal
