    One thought on “Pretty Young Things”

    1. Ignore the nonsense on the back cover. Indeed, ignore the front cover. This is an intelligently written entertainment based on horrible things.Despite the subject matter, Pretty Young Things is not aimed at a niche market or subculture. Anyone will enjoy this book, providing they don't object to gunfights, torture, drug use, medical horror, or vampires.Comparisons can be misleading, but you're probably wondering what this book is like. So it's reminiscent of I Am Legend, and maybe Irvine Welsh, [...]

    2. Excellent read. I'm not surprised this one has tanked, as it seems to have emerged at the worst possible time for a vampire novel that treats vampires as villains, rather than sparkly sexpots, but it does a nice job of deglamourising vampirism, and stressing that there's nothing sexy about eating people. Crisply written, deeply nasty, and a lot of fun for people who want to read a vampire novel that owes more to Matheson and Newman than Rice and Brite. One of the few vampire novels in recent yea [...]

    3. Clever. All that crap about how to write a thriller? This book does that. Okay, it does it with disco vampires, but what it does is more like Nicholas Blincoe and Irvine Welsh than Twillight or Buffy. There's a seriously nasty sense of humour at work here as well, which is nice.I also likle that you can't say a word about the plot without dropping spoilers. This is a book that's put together like an expensive swiss watch. I don't think the writer did the Stephen King thing and made it up as he w [...]

    4. This book was okay. I didn't really like anyone in the book. The vampires seemed a bit lame. They were all coke heads. The humans were wasters. Jay so wasn't worth all that hassle. A quick read tho and it's not boring.

    5. Lacks the humor I was expecting from the book's description - it leans more towards horror with vicious fighting and explicitly described disection. A quick read at less than a hundred pages but I'm not sure that the plot had a point at all.
