Comments Willow Man

  • Nick Pageant

    I should probably wait to process a bit more before I review, but I ain't gonna. I loved this because I love John Inman and I love horror and I really love it when John Inman writes horror.The plot is reminiscent of Stephen King insofar as the story involves coming of age combined with horror. Stephen King does this a lot and it works well. It certainly works for John Inman. The thing that impressed me most about this book is the ambition of it. I like all of Inman's books, both comedy, suspense [...]

    Sometimes you read a book and it makes you feel like you've got a first class ticket on the Titanic; it's great, but you're still going down. That's this book. Destined to be one of my favorites for the 2015. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with meWrong answer--RUN!Blissfully unaware and galavanting through their neighborhood a fearless band of friends make that leap from child to adult. So swift you mourn for the loss of innocence, the [...]


  • Rosa, really

    DNF 53%It's not you, book, it's me: I really do not enjoy horror novels. And yet I enjoy John Inman so I thought I'd give it a try--but nope! I'm not the right audience for this book. Sorry, Jen! Let's do something fluffy for our next BR.


  • Jennifer☠Pher☠

    Well, that was quite a ride. I'm weird. It's like a dissociative identity disorder or something. I mean, I can't read a regular book normally if there is any pain, any disturbing situations or you know, real bad things. But, with a horror story, I am all in. Somehow my mind creates a buffer. It's like I know the shit happening is bad but it is supposed to be because there is evil but in a horror story it's an evil that isn't really real? I dunno if that makes sense. At the end of the day I can r [...]

    5 "OMG THIS IS SO SCARY" STARS!!OH DEAR GOD, THIS WAS SO GOOD! And it was so out of the norm for me to read something scary and bloody, i hate being scared!! it's scary! But anything John Inman writes I am going to grab, I hope this is not the last one. Read it friends!!!


  • Eva

    My first horror MMAnd unfortunately unsuccessful oneI must say its most likely just me and I just should not read horror even MM. I really struggled and started skimming pretty quickly Nope, not for me.Sadly, it wasn't a great experience for me and based on this I can not recommend it. Thank you my ladies for holding my handhere.


  • Isabel

    Read with FriendsI was expecting more I mean, I love John Inman's work, his style and his stories. I liked this one too But it was a little boring sometimes, too many details I was also expecting to be terrified, but I wasn't.


  • Ann

    It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of John Inman and his words in all their incarnations. I can’t get enough of his love pollen in the Belladonna Arms, his charming slapstick in Shy and his ventures into the dark side in Sunset Lake. Willow Man is definitely filed in the dark column and man did I love every heartbreaking moment. I was born and raised in San Diego where Willow Man takes place and I remember the crash that is the catalyst for Willow Man well. I was a kid at the time and my mom wo [...]


  • Taintedskyee (Books Books&More Books)

    BR with my best buddies hereFirstly, a long sigh.Writing :Great.Especially if you are an aspiring author. if you are just reading it for fun and spook of a horror story,you might find it a tad dragging but nonetheless scary.If you are like me who read at night with the lights off then be prepared for a spooky ride.Even small sound will make your heart beat faster and only a great author can create that kind of effect with words alone.So hats off John Inman.Story :Good.If you are looking forward [...]


  • Paul

    Nice work, this is an excellent horror story. It has all the makings of any great horror novel and just happens to be a M/M one. The MC's are great it sort of switches between 1 to 2 to 5 depending on the time line and that is another excellent point of this book, it switches flawlessly between times or timelines. It's sad, creep and quite scary but also funny and very touchingIf you like horror I highly recommend this book but I will admit it did drag a touch at the end.


  • Don Bradshaw

    I've read two of Mr. Inman's books but this one was a sharp turn in the road. I enjoy a good horror story and this one fit the bill it even had a romance woven in. I grew up on a reading diet of Stephen King when he was at his prime and while Mr. Inman is no Stephen King, the story shook me up. The characters felt real. Woody, Cathy, Bobby, and the twins went through hell and while not all of them walked out alive, none of them walked away unmarked. How do you kill pure evil? Give this book a tr [...]


  • Heather♥

    4.5 starsStephen King fans will appreciate and enjoy this one. And much like the movie Jaws has kept me out of the ocean, I'm pretty sure I won't be hiking or camping in any canyons. Ever. [Maybe it's the fearlessness of youth, but I still don't understand why Woody and his friends kept going into that canyon after everything that was happening there. I would have lit out of there like my ass was on fire after the first incident with poor Wilbur the dog and never looked back.]It took me a bit to [...]


  • DoodlePanda

    Before this I had never read a John Inman book. I realise now that this is a problem, and it needs to be sorted. This is possibly one of the best horror books I have read, it actually gave me goosebumps a couple of times. And that very rarely happens.This book is horrible. But in a good way, the way a great horror is supposed to be. And it's awesome. It is also sad and sweet, exciting and shocking. All packaged up in a fantastic way of writing. Inmans writing is one of the best I have read in a [...]


  • Beth

    Wow. Just Wow. This book is so wild and crazy and scary and fantastic. I don't have enough words right now / the creepy has to settle in a bit. But this much I know: if you are a reader of M/M and a fan of Stephen King - you should run, not walk, to get this book and read it. I couldn't put it down except when it was dark, because I was too afraid. I was amazingly and blissfully swept away by the story. Five stars: a definite must read for the horror fan. . And watch out for the cockroaches :-) [...]


  • Brandon Witt

    Once again, John Inman wrote a book that took me months to get through, simply because I had to wait until I was on a plane surrounded by people. It's just too scary to read when I'm alone in my house. Stellar job!


  • DJ

    Whew. This is a lot of book to swallow. Sort of IT (Stephen King) meets twisted piece of metal. A tough and mentally draining read. FOUR STARS because it was so stressful. If it weren't, it would have been a crappy wanna be story. FOUR STARS because I'm going to be paranoid during comic con in San Diego this summer--the back drop of the story.It's the story of Woody, a country singer bringing himself back from the brink of self destruction. He's struggled with the loss of the love of his life, B [...]


  • Joyfully Jay

    A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsFirst let me say that, without a doubt, this was a very scary story. The inherent evil that became the Willow Man was so terribly real, and so much bigger than any hateful, twisted being you could imagine. The brilliant move by author John Inman in creating such a foul creature lay in the fear that such a person provokes in the heart of both a child and adult alike. Willow Man was so believable that I too wanted him dead—I wanted the horror that Woody and his frie [...]


  • Sarah

    If I could only choose one word to describe this book it would be creepy! This story has a Stephen King It feel to it. Young kids stumble upon an evil spirit that tries to kill them. Years later they return to their home time and go after the evil spirit.This is definitely more of a horror/suspense book than a romance. Anyone looking for a love story won't find it here. The POV changes throughout the whole book and I really liked that. Also the story shifts between past and present. I usually do [...]


  • Sunne

    No rating because - while the writing is defintely first class and it's creepy as hell - I don't like horror stories, I just don't like them, no matter how good. I thought I'd give it a try because it's John Inman and - man, that man can write.but not even he can make me love horror.


  • AGandyGirl

    4.5 StarsSo it has been a few days and I am not sure this will ever be a book that will leave my memory entirely. Like "Boys on the Mountain" this, for me, is John Inman at his best. The writinge way in which John brings you into his world quite mesmerizing.Now, I will say this one for me was possibly more disturbing than Boys. There were certainly scenes in Boys that ripped me in two, left me holding my breath and my heart racingever in Willow Man, these feelings were a continual part of the en [...]


  • Kara

    This grabbed me as soon as I started it and I could not put this book down! So I love horror books/movies and this book had every element I love in a good horror story! You get the boogeyman type who is beyond evil and just wants to hurt you and even kill those you love. Then you get friends who have not seen each other in years who all must band together to fight this thing and save each other. The way John Inman tells this story was just amazing! I was on the edge of my seat through this whole [...]


  • Sue bowdley

    DamnHow do I review a book that scared me so muchI used to read Stephen King.But this.wowis surpassed any I've read of hisd I don't say that lightlyWillow Man was surely the most sadisticevilest creature I've read aboutWoody, Bobby, Cathy, and twins Jeremy and Chuck go through hell in their thirteenth yearFive kids who find true horror in the canyon behind Woody's house.Losing one of their own during that year surely changed their lives and years later when Woody returns to do a show he meets up [...]


  • Stephen Osborne

    Ah, John. You've done it again. Yes, this is a horror novel, and yes, there are grisly bits and people get killed in very nasty ways, but there's tenderness and falling in love and deep friendship to be found as well. Very well done!


  • Robert Helms

    4.8⭐️. I love John Inman books. The only reason for the -.2⭐️ is, in general, I dislike the supernatural genre. With that said the overall story was superb, as usual. I have said before in other reviews, John is a Master Wordsmith Exceptional! This book adds more proof my statement. Keep new books coming! Thank you for your writing.


  • Pippii

    My Dear John….e you TRYING to kill me?This book made me think so much of Stephen King and “It” (an all-time favorite)There are similarities and but still this book is SO its own.I don´t really know what to tell you to make you read this book; But if you like sweet coming-of-age stories, mixed with one sweet - or three – love stories, mixed with the Stephen King horror and the sweet John Inham humor (even if it is less than in many other stories) and just a really wonderful wordy story, [...]


  • Beacullen

    I could not put this book down. The way the story is told, first with them as children, then later with the group of friends now grown and remembering, was perfect. It is gory, it is about subjects that are hard to read including child abuse and more. But that part isnt really pushed in your face too much, it is hard to read in parts though. When we finally find out exactly what happened to Bobby, I was horrified. And it made it even more horrible to know that they found their friend murdered wh [...]


  • Vince Burr

    I don't know where to even begin with this book! It was amazing and such a departure from Mr. Inman's usual style. One of the most exciting horror novels I have ever read! The Willow Man is one sick bastard; I have read some hardcore horror but this creature really turned my stomach. This is definitely a reread-worthy story, and I hope that we will see these characters again in the future!


  • Tracy

    Unbelievably good horror storyLove the bonds the kids had as children and into adulthoodCan't help but feel sad for woody and bobbyLots of humor to balance out the scaryI laughed and criedAnd was properly scared at timesDidn't want to finish and that endingIs it really over?


  • George

    very strange in a good wayTook long time to get through. Have to categorize it as uncomfortable! Nice prose that was unexpected. A little lofty /unnecessary with the vocabulary


  • ~RMG

    Sounds reminiscent of Stephen King's IT. I loved the movie as a teen (own it as an adult), so I'm looking forward to this one.
