He has that likeability that is required for true evil. Preview — Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons. Each year they meet to discuss their ongoing campaign of debauchery and slaughter.

Carrion Comfort is a huge, epic novel. A survivor against the most oppressive and terrifying odds. For me, it could have lost about pages. I’m now on my way to church to cleanse myself.

There is so much depth and richness to this tale of evil. One question in the book is “Is he here for justice or revenge?

Any one who calls themselves a horror aficionado needs to read this. Saul is famous for his theories about seemingly strange and impossible violence, but is as stumped as the sheriff. Four Dan Simmons books into it and I can say he remains near the top of my list. She accepted them for who they were, and she loved them the same way.

Book Details Carrion Comfort Author: I read because I like knowing the deepest thoughts and motivations of the characters who populate my fiction. Do you also like long and rambling adventures populated by normal folk caught up in the nightmare of marionettes, either trying to escape the nightmare or get revenge for the things that had been done to them? Melanie uses people in a blind panic and ends up in Germantown, Philadelphia.


Much of the suspense of the story is in how it develops so I don’t want to give a synopsis. There was so much, by my older and jaded eyes, that I think could have been cut right the hell out, but it was a horror novel first and foremost, and having a long build-up before the missiles come and destroy the island or whatever is still what we seek in the style.

Sweet baby Tom Cruise, I wish to fuck I was kidding. They can walk in daylight; they don’t sleep in coffins; and they cast shadows and reflections. Yes, this book is dated, but even if I went back in time to when this book was released inI still can’t imagine the necessity for such word repetition.

Natalie and Saul are so fleshed out, they feel like real people and you are genuinely invest This book!


Possibly because comfprt story was so heavy and depressing at times, with no comedic relief or light moments! Saul realizes as they are packing up that he is being pursued by FBI Agent Haines, and sets the barn on fire and flees with Natalie.

They have had a hand in terrible acts of violence throughout history.

I almost dropped a star because adn is some extraneous material here that could have been excised and the mind-blowing story would not hav I like long books, and Carrion Comfort is very long. Saul reaches out to family members working in the Mossad for help in the same search for Willi Borden.


To Use, and I cardion “U” for a reason, people the way she did, ugh When it comes Melanie, I have to say Kathy Downes C Arnold Barent convinced her to. Paperbackpages.

However, aside from the general premise and the few WW2 portions, Carrion Comfort is surprisingly short on the horror factor; most of the novel reads like a 80’s thriller, complete with black helicopters, secret agents, explosives and multiple shoot outs, which occupy most of its pages. I especially don’t really enjoy “action” scenes where people are just running around for ages and hiding in different locations – this kind of thing is great for the big screen, but can be hard to follow when reading.

The language used by Melanie Fuller throughout the novel contains mainly anachronistic racially charged words and hate speech to disconnect the modern reader from her first person narratives. The ending blew me away.

Melanie and others who use the Confort are mind vampires. I was not expecting that. Saul condemns the Third Reich ‘s violent actions as inhuman.
