Dark Mountain by Richard Laymon

Hello guys, What’s up? Do you prefer to read lightweight or heavy books?

I prefer lightweight ones, that range from 100 to 300 pages. Anything more than that is way too much for me.

Title: Dark Mountain

Author: Richard Laymon

Genre: Supernatural, Horror, Thriller

Publisher: RCA


Two families have come to the California mountains expecting a fun weekend camping trip. What they will find instead is terror in the form of a violent psychopath and his mother, a powerful witch.

Dark Mountain follows two families that go camping and suddenly become targets for a witch and her psycho son.

β€œThere are always those ifs when something goes wrong. We can’t blame ourselves. It’s just a bunch of little choices that don’t mean anything till the shit hits the fan, and then you look back and see how you got there. And you find a whole string of ifs going back forever.”

I love camping books, and the eerie and spooky feeling that someone is out there watching you. I’m actually writing a horror camping book πŸ˜‚ so let’s see how that will turn out. This was a fast paced, and eventful read. I’ve never read a book by the author so I didn’t know what to expect. However it was intriguing and full of suspense especially towards the end. Some dialogues were very hilarious. The characters were not so interesting or rather I’d say not quite unique. There were a lot of them and I didn’t relate with them the way I wanted to. There were a lot of sexual scenes as well that I believe should have been capped off. Supernatural phenomenon and witchy stuff made it more fun and interesting to read.

Β Overall, I liked it and I would like to read more books by the author.
