Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting subject... but.... Although the cover is emblazoned with -Winner of the Bram Stoker Award - I did not find the book particularly inspiring. Definitely not even close to being a better book than anything Stephen King has written. The author took a very complex story subject, and only skimmed across the surface of it. With the exception of The Preacher, the characters are weak and non-compelling. The men are your basic wimps, and Marina's frequent attitude towards both her husband and the sherrif, makes her so unlikeable. I laughed at the part early on, when the sherrif's department walked into the pastor's house - without a search warrant - and snooped around. What was even sillier was their pronouncement that since no car was in the laneway... they have strong suspicion to believe the pastor and his family went for a drive. Duh! You think so? Interesting read? Definitely. But also a little over-rated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revel In This One! It's kind of cool when a horror novel uses many of the familiar trappings of most horrorworks that have gone before--and yet is somehow able to feel like something new and different, memorable and dazzling, wildly apart from the crowd. Bentley Little manages to do this in 'The Revelation', a superb shocker. Anything that would seem slick or perfunctory elsewhere, becomes, in this book, a positive, in that it somehow all assists that incredible wave of pounding, ever-swelling relentless horror that will hit you as you move through this book. We "watch" the characters, more than we empathize with them or enter their heads--but what we get to "watch" more than makes up for a lack of character development. Besides, when it comes to getting to know the people in this book, somehow a little goes a long way. I wouldn't want anything in here that slows down the momentum. As for the stunning conclusion, it's frighteningly flawless. And I'm referring to the last seventy pages, not the last two pages. A wonderfully wicked horrortrain ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the best of horror. This book gripped me by the hairs that were standing straight up on the back of my neck and pushed me further and further into this book until the dramatically horrifying ending. Yes...this means it was great. On a scale of 1 to 10...it deserves and 11 or better. Move over Stephen King...this book scared everything right out of me. What seems like an ordinary everyday horror book about satanic cults...soon turns into an ordinary everyday horror book about good versus evil, God versus the Devil...or so you think. This is definitely my type of twisted...nobody knows what's going to happen next type of book. Nobody's safe from the little creatures that attack. Being a Stephen King fan my whole life it is hard for me to say this...but I think this is the best horror novel I have ever read so far (please don't tell Stephen King...LOL). The only weakness I found would be the characters. I didn't really FEEL for them the way I do with King's characters. I was sad when terrible things happened to them...but I wasn't BOTHERED by it. Avid readers must know the difference that I mean. But above that, I found it very difficult to put the book down until it was over. I was even caught reading it during my training period at work...ooops. I definitely recommend this book to any one who loves horror. It is a great read.
