The night closed in like something alive, its warm dampness imbuing the house with an oppressive atmosphere that seemed somehow threatening to the child who sat in the small front parlor. There was something in the air she could almost touch, and as she sat waiting, she began to feel her skin crawl with the peculiar itching that always came over her late in the summer. She squirmed on the mohair sofa, but it did no good-her cotton dress still clung to her like wet cellophane. Outside the wind began to rise, and for a moment the girl felt relief.

I absolutely loved John Saul as a kid, and this novel displays his strengths.
Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). I absolutely loved John Saul as a kid, and this novel displays his strengths. He’s a fantastic writer, and his way with words is a subtle, slow burn–aside from the opening scene, things start out normal and ordinary, but slowly build up into a terrifying conclusion, with the true nature of events making itself known over time. The true nature of events in this story, though, i. inda weird.
Nathaniel by John Saul is, to put it lightly, very familiar territory for him and for anyone who has read several of his books. I seriously think that this book's. largest problem, at least for me, is that I read it as my 27th Saul read. If I would have read it much earlier on I would have thought much more of it but the same. elements keep turning up again and again

Michael’s voice clearly reflected his bewilderment. ael himself rocked furiously on a bentwood chair. Lots of reasons, darling, Janet replied, forcing herself to meet Michael’s angry eyes. For one thing, we have a home here-a place to live that’s all our own. Wouldn’t you rather live in a house than an apartment?. I don’t know, Michael answered, too promptly. Dad never wanted to live on a farm.

For a hundred years, the people of Prairie Bend have whispered Nathaniel's name in wonder and fear. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. I found this in a thrift store for like 50 cents and thought I'd give it a shot. I expected it to be pretty bad, like any cheesy horror book. Extremely well-written, evocative, suspenseful, great characters, etc. It's been a year and a half since I read it and it still sticks with me.
