Hallows Eve - Al Sarrantonio Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
Hallow’s Eve is yet another one of the countless “horror” novels following the “Someone returns to their hometown to confront an ancient evil” scenario, which has, along with the concept of Halloween in general, been beaten to a very uninteresting pulp.
The book while apropriately atmospheric is rather unspectacular and often features very boring characters, none of which forge a relationship with the reader.
The book is well written when reflecting on the context to which it is based. Being well written however, is (as any avid reader will attest to) not enough! One must have thought evoking concepts, emotional connections, as well as excellent character constructs to be deemed “a good book”, or at least a book worth reading.
That being said, I would not deem Hallow’s Eve “a good book”. It is not by any stretch of the imagination an “awful book” but is definitly not worth reading when compared to the much better stories that are most definitly out there.
