To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Sijmons like lazy writing to me. Dan Simmons has the ability to construct a great novel!

I mean, at one point, the word is used comvort much as “she” and “her”. BUT they are mortal. A thrilling plot and intriguing locales keep the reader guessing until the end.

This was my first Dan Simmons book and I had no real idea what to expect. Yet after I’ve said all that, it still remains one of the best horror novels of the second half of the 2oth century.

Maybe it is due to having read King’s newest while I read this one. They also discuss that they are manipulating the current US election by way of the Iran Hostage Crisis to ensure Ronald Reagan ‘s election.

The frenetic, Hollywood-like action can get a bit boring at times, and the true potential of the novel never really surfaces.

comtort I usually keep the books which are my favorites and can’t part with. This was a pretty epic horror novel filled with tons of mind-jumping, mind and body controlling, and history. The book ends with Melanie comfortable and unchallenged in her abilities in France, keeping tabs on control of officers of a nuclear submarine.

I want to see what he does with some historical fiction. But I think the reason the author left Melanie alive was to remind the reader …more It could happen! That you could be used to commit someone wimmons horrible deeds is scary indeed. They all fit their roles perfectly.

Natalie, is another of my favorite characters. I loved this book, as sick as it is. They meet once a year with a group of people they have kidnapped.

Sweet baby Tom Cruise, I wish to fuck I was kidding. I feel that I missed a great deal of subtext because I do not play the game. She felt so natural, real, yet not real, because it is hard to find people with purpose aimed towards finding good in others. Preview — Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons.


The language was simple but powerful and effective. Let bad guys be bad guys. Anyhow, four stars is still four stars and a worthy horror novel. I read because I like knowing the deepest thoughts and motivations of the characters who populate my fiction. When Willi’s plane explodes the next day, Melanie suspects Nina and then a fight ensues, with both characters using innocent bystanders as soldiers and victims in a bizarre series of brutal murders involving children, old men, and security guards until Nina is shot in the head and dies.

And it is with these unique monsters – along with a few normal humans who pitch their resources, time and life to fight them – that the novel unfolds a rather thought-provoking story. For a novel of pages and teensy-tiny type to boot, at least in my paperback copyI found only three memorable scenes.


Carrion Comfort Review – Lornographic Material

That would be weird, right? Another huge letdown was the lack of horror. The book itself was terrifying in parts. Level Zeroes could not differentiate criminal acts from everyday functions; they were morally blind.



The Jews were the chess pieces and their moves controlled by The Oberst using his Ability. An absolute Must Read for the Horror Fan. 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.

If I had been pushed to give an author Xan would have attributed the stories to Clive Barker if anyone. The WW2 pieces are seen in retrospect, and are certainly the best part of the novel; the obsession with chess that some characters have couldn’t have been used in a better way.

The story’s action climaxes at the private island. Willi takes over the “use and hunt” aspect of the “game” and suggests taking the game global—which he and the televangelist support, and Barent and Kepler don’t.
