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!

Tracy Hmmm? Interesting. The premise does not sound too exciting, but your review is great. His book, Swan Song, is one of my all time favorite books. I've been wanting to reread it for the past two years and I keep getting other stuff shoved in my hand. He is a great storyteller.
