  • Хитрости эльфийской политологии

    Интересная трилогия, как понимаю еще будет продолжение приключений.... Но на мой взгляд затянули... Очень! Все события можно было вместить в 2 книги... Ну... На 4+ тянет...

LOCKED DOORS is as good as anything I've read all year, a stay-up-all-night thriller that will have you chewing your fingers down to the nub even as you're reading its last paragraph. Highest possible recommendation. BOOKREPORTER Crouch's story has much going for it, as does his considerable skill as an author. The story grips and propels the reader, while Crouch makes the ride hypnotic with beautiful Carolina moons over tide-smoothed beaches. One wonders if a poet turned to horror, would this be the result. CHARLESTON POST AND COURIER Fast-paced and scary. CALGARY SUN Crouch writes a nicely turned character, puts them front-and-center and then rains holy hell upon them until you think your head is going to explode.

Blake Crouch is the most exciting new thriller writer I've read in years. DAVID MORRELL This tautly written, very scary thriller quickly grabs the reader by the throat. Leave the lights on; Luther may be out there. BOOKLIST When the story moves to the foggy, desolate Outer Banks, Crouch is at his terrifying best. You can feel the cold mist on your skin and see the creepy shadows barely illuminated by a distant cabin's flickering light. A great horror novel takes you to a place so scary and vivid as to make you thankful you are not actually there, and Crouch does this well. DENVER POST This is a new millennium, and Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates and Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter have to be outdone. Crouch comes close. ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS [LOCKED DOORS] is as suspenseful, chilling and macabre a novel as I've ever read. WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL
