    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleAlthough there was some wonderful writing in this book overall it fell flat for me Too many characters too much hopping about too little of the truly interesting Mr X and much too much of the other not very intriguing cast members Also it took a long time and a ridiculous amount of self impressed exposition to finally get to the point of the story The book was

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleI thought The Throat was one of the best written novels ever published lots of complexity mysteries within mysteries satisfying ending finely drawn

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleI am a big Straub fan to begin with have enjoyed nearly all of his books despite his work with Stephen King I think he is uite different This book was particularly enjoyable to me as I am a huge Lovecraft fan and this is clearly his love letter to Lovecraft Great fun for Lovecraft fans in picking out the Lovecraftian imagery names of books and characters scattered throughout the story all the while winking wildly at the fans no attempts at imitation just sincere flattery and making use of a terrifying and wonderful mythos Also a fun and in depth mystery plenty of raffish characters to love and Straub's weirdly cool style Highly recommend I hated the title does not describe the book accurately at all otherwise kudos

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleThis is one of the most difficult books I have read When reading it I struggled at points to follow it but the last paragraph of the book made perfect sense and I realised that it was possibly the way the book was intended A few years after reading I am still perplexed by this novel How good can a story be if you struggle to read it but then are left unable to stop thinking about it I have come to the conclusion that Peter Straub is the best writer I have ever read Ghost story wa

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleI like the idea of this story but the book itselfjust didn't fill me with joy I can't put my finger on what I didn't enjoy exactly and there were parts that I certainly enjoyed but it just left me unfulfilled in the end

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleAlthough I loved the Blue Rose series and The Hellfire Club my favorite works by Straub are those that focus on paranormal plot lines like Ghost Story Shadowland my favorite and Floating Dragon When I picked up Mr X I was delighted to find that Straub had returned to his paranormal pastThe story was fresh and the writing tight and captivating The plot itself was highly original and the working in of Lovecraft was brilliant I hadn't read The Dunwich Horror and when I realized how integral it was to Mr X I set down the book and picked up my Lovecraft anthology Something a bit spooky happened I set down Mr X at page 89 and The Dunwich Horror began on page 89 of the Lovecraft anthology Of course this has nothing to do with anything but I found it amusing nonetheless I'm glad I read the Lovecraft story as it gave a great many hints to the inner

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleWow I had some idea that Peter Straub could write having read his co authoring of The Talisman many years ago There's no uestion he is a great talent maybe too much so for me Either this book is lacking a great editor or I didn't eat enough blueberries and carrots in the last week because I constantly had to keep thinking back about this strange Dunstan family and how they seem to haveunusual connections to half of a small southern Illinois town Some passages were terrific and blazed wonderfully wicked or surreal images in my head and others were downright overwritten and confusing I will not give up on this author I want to read Ghost Story and Koko for sure but Mr X missed the mark on the whole for me


  • Andrea Blythe

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleAt heart this dark fantasy novel is about the twisted truths that lie at the heart of one's family history and whether it's better to leave secrets buried or dig them up Peter Straub does an amazing job of unraveling pieces of information that slowly form into at larger picture His characters are complex and fascinating which makes the story absolutely compelling with an ending that kind of blew my mind and makes me want to go back and read it again Fantastic book


  • Esther King

    eBook Peter Straub Ú Mr X ePUB ì Ú Mr X KindleThis provided a counterpart to my other Lovecraftian read from this week but this was certainly the weaker of the two I really enjoyed some scenes in here but I felt like there were a lot of missed chances and a lack of characterisation of most of the people I really liked the Mr X parts of this book but to be honest there was very little scare and a lot of family politics I think the scene with the army cadets was one of those pivotal points where you do get a sense of the kind of horror writer Straub really is it was a perfect mix of gross sexual violent and just plain evil That was the kind of stuff I wish the rest of the book did but realistically there wasn’t even a real climax to it I’m sure his other books pack of p
