The Five is amazing. It's not easily summed up, so I won't really try. It's about a band, it's about the forces of good vs. the forces of evil, and it's about love and friendship. Did I mention it's amazing? This is my first book by Robert McCammon and I only picked it up because Stephen King listed it in his summer reading list. But I feel like I've been giving a gift. McCammon's writing abilities blew me away and I found myself reaching for my little book o'quotes time and time again. This is a hefty book, but I guarantee you that it is worth the time. I don't know what genre to list this book under, horror isn't appropriate, so maybe thriller is the best fit- there were so many times that this book had my heart in my throat and my fingers knotted. And yes, I will be reading future Robert McCammon books!
