The only reason I don't give it five stars is that it may not be an important work of literature, or something. But maybe I'll change my rating; this Prey book may be something more important. It is what a Stephen King book aspires to be, but in my opinion all the King books fail due to their lame phrasing and attempts to appeal to all Americans just through random vulgarity. On the other hand, this Prey book (most of them, but this one particularly) is appealing because it tells an interesting story with likable characters, it adds some insight into universal ideas and emotions we all experience, without turning that concept into a booger joke (ala King), and the author does all of this with some eloquence and intelligence.
