|About the Book|
What to say? This book was a bit of a disappointment. It started out fairly good, but then went completely ridiculous. I can understand that the movie is prob far more comical than intended. The characters were dry and I didnt care about them. The book went into detail about Indian legend and what this manitou could do, what it could summon, how to defeat it, etc. Just boring. I realize that this is a first novel, so Im willing to try this author again. I do not recommend starting with this book. The ending was silly. Spoilers here....so the evil Great One was destroyed by a computers manitou? By technology? This seems far fetched but I guess I would have to do some research. Still, very silly ending. There was hardly any gore or any sense of dread in this novel. It felt very much like I was reading someones research paper. I really hope his other novels are better because I have a crap load of them! So, 2 stars for me.
