AAAAAgggh!

I listen to audio books while I'm torching.

I'm currently listening to Dragon's Tears, by Dean Koontz.

The main character, a cop, has just found his friend dead in his home, killed by a supernatural entity - that manifested as cupboards full of tarantulas and snakes.

Just as the story is describing arriving at the kitchen, where the tarantulas are still moving around ...

A FREAKING SPIDER CRAWLS UP THE SIDE OF MY ON-TORCH MARVER AND SCUTTLES ACROSS THE TOP AND DOWN THE OTHER SIDE.


Aaaaghhhhh!

pant pant pant wheeze.

I don't need that kind of realism, thank you.





PS I beat the spider with a brass stump shaper. It was quite effective.

    I really like Dean Koonz. Especially the way he relates to dogs, as being beyond human in evolution!... and aso how he manages to use challenged people and make them very special with superhuman abilities. My absolute favourite of his books is "Life Expectancy", because there is so much excellent humour in it - no monsters, other than human ones; the characters are so cool and vivid, the story is great, with twists, and the ending SWEET. Highly recommended. Gail B.
