really liked it
Read in August, 1972

Prior to the Stephen King fueled horror craze, this book creeped people out. I read 3/4 of this in one sitting. There was a film made based on this novel that was so-so, but Tryons book will take you for a ride.

Nancy This was required reading for my high school Modern Novel class back in 1980. It was one of those books I couldn't put down. Very creepy. You're right, the film was only so-so.
