For Weeds Will Grow is my second read authored by David Six. I thought nothing could match the horror of In the Time it Takes to Blink, reviewed just a couple of days ago. I was wrong. The level of horror is equally high in this novel but from an entirely different perspective. The earlier novel dealt with a very sick psychopath (can there be any other kind?). This one is from the perspective of a protagonist as a child dealing with uncontrollable power that may master him unless he can take cha ...more

We start this story with thirteen Y/O Danny Noble and his friend finding a dead body. Maybe seeing the body triggered Danny really beginning to acknowledge some very strange and disturbing things that have been part of his existence. Whatever it was Danny is having visions and they are scaring him. His mother and the other adults around him are concerned somewhat but attribute it to him having growing pains.

We get to follow Danny on his life’s journey till he is a husband and father. You get to

they go and find a dead body at least that is what they think they see. the visions start and it is put down to growing pains. is it growing pains? is what he is seeing real? what is happening? read to find out what is happening

Everyone is afraid of something.

Maybe it's that flash of movement you are sure you saw from the corner of your eye just a second ago, but when you turned, nothing was there. Maybe it's the new noise in your house that you tell yourself is just the joists settling. Maybe it's your neighbor who seems friendly and convivial, but there is something just a bit off about them.
