Saul has a way of grabbing the reader's attention in just the first few pages and keeping that attention throughout his entire novels. Each one of his books brings a new story of some of humankind's greatest fears and Sleep Walk is no exception. He is also able to introduce new fears into a world that is already full of them. I wish I could only know where he comes up with the fantastic tales of terror and horror that he is able to weave into a perfect story.

Sleep Walk takes place in a small town in the desert of America. Strange things have been happening as they always seem to do in stories that thrill and terrify the reader. A former resident comes back to the small town to teach in the school she grew up in. Not much has changed since she left and has come back, and the longer she stays in the town, this starts to change. Kids that have normally been trouble makers are suddenly complacent and follow orders no matter the order given to them. Other members of the town start dying and have medical issues that there is no pre-warning for. To top it all off a big oil company comes in and buys out the smaller one that hosts the majority of the jobs in the small town and things get even weirder than that.

Saul's books are ones that I need to read more of. I find them easy to get into and they keep me reading page after page until the book is finished or my eyes are drooping. Just when you think you have the plot and the ending figured out, he likes to throw another curve ball at you.
