For some reason this book is listed as 368 pages, there are only 358. It probably shouldn't bug me as much as it does. lol
While I've heard John Saul described as a combination of Stephen King and Dean Koontz, I've also heard and read my fair share of not so flattering reviews on John Saul. The general complaint is that Saul's books are particularly formulaic, and once you've read one or two, you can guess the ending halfway through the book. (The ending of this book completely caught me off guar...more
Black Creek Crossing, a novel by John Saul, comes across as disjointed and unorganized, like the author’s stream of consciousness was directing the course of events. What begins at first to be a horror novel seemingly revolving around a house, soon becomes the tale of two pathetic teenage souls at odds with the world and stumbling into the ether of the supernatural. Angel Sullivan and Seth Baker are perfect for each other; neither have friends to speak of and each share a past filled with bully...more

When I asked my friends for new authors I didn't expect to find one that would grab my attention.
This book was just scary enough to not give me nightmares and just witchy enough to make me believe the story.
There were some moments I almost put it down. If you are overly sensitive to (view spoiler)[ child abuse, animal abuse, child molestation, and bullies this book may not...more
The book builds the characters well enough that one hates the parents of both teens. The mother's aren't abusive, more that they turn their backs while the fathers mesh out unfair punishments to imagined affronts. My disappoin...more
