Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments The Tooth Fairy himself isn't horror? Fangs? Green hair?


message 10: by Scott (new)

Scott It's a story about life and growing up with a lurking element of horror. (That's life, innit?)


message 11: by Tressa (new)

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments If I could manifest the lurking horror in my remaining years, what would it look like I wonder? Hmm, me thinks something far more terrifying than a short man, smelly man with fangs.


message 12: by Scott (new)

Scott Sounds like me dad.

I agree with the Moana Lisa. The Tooth Fairy creept me out a few times when I was reading it (especially late at night while I was in the middle of nowhere Maine where it can get quite creepy at night) and his/her attitude and presence was quite unnerving.

Tressa  (moanalisa) | 19935 comments Thanks, Jason. I thought maybe I read the wrong book. I don't understand William's comment about no horror in the book. I thought there was quite a bit. The Tooth Fairy, in male or female form, was very menacing and was more than just a figment of the kids' imagination because he/she could physically harm and kill people. Might have been indirectly, but still.

Scott, I like your short explanation of the theme of the book. I think my initial disappointment was only because I was expecting it to be outright horror (maybe that's what William means). But the TF is more of a manifestation of the boys' aging and the things they're dealing with at each stage in their lives.

message 20: by Erik (new)

Erik (erikwallace) Finished the book tonight. An interesting ending, not exactly what I expected but overall I liked the book.


message 21: by Scott (new)

Scott I didn't know he had any short fiction. Is there a collection? I've read five or six of his novels and loved them all.


message 22: by Jo (new)

Jo I want to read more of his work

Any suggestions?



message 23: by Scott (new)

Scott The Stormwatcher is probably my favorite, but it's only available as a limited edition. Maybe Dreamside or Indigo.


message 24: by Jo (new)

Jo Thanks :)
