We've been asked if we could have a thread where our members could post their reviews, so here it is!

We can tweak this and make an entire section for member's reviews and break it up by genre/sub-genre or category. If this thread takes off, we'll think about doing that. For now, feel free to post your reviews here, if you like!

Marie | 3342 comments I have started re-visiting John Saul books as he has some pretty creepy ones out there and I am planning on doing some re-reads of his work. This one I hadn't read and I just finished it the other day.

I loved that book, David! I enjoyed your review. :)

David B | 73 comments Thank you! This was a great idea for a thread. I hope to see more people posting reviews here. The main reason I come to Goodreads is for book recommendations and it is nice to have a place that singles out the horror.

Marie | 3342 comments Though I know quite a few people have probably read this book, there might be some members that haven't. I finished Stephen King's book "The Outsider" a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed with the story.

By the way, can anyone tell me how you copy the image of the book cover into your post?


message 21: by Marie (new)

Marie | 3342 comments @David

Right above the comment box you will see add book/author. When you open up the comment box click on where it says add book/author and a drop down box will appear. It will have a search bar along with two choices below that says link or cover. Search for the book you want then click cover and then add the book. It should appear in your comment box. After you get it in there then just post your comment.
