Book Review / Cycle of the Werewolf by Stephen King

The first scream came from the snowbound railwayman who felt the fangs ripping at his throat. The next month there was a scream of ecstatic agony from the woman attacked in her snug bedroom.

Now scenes of unbelieving horror come each time the full moon shines on the isolated Maine town of Tarker Mills. No one knows who will be attacked next. But one thing is sure.

When the moon grows fat, a paralyzing fear sweeps through Tarker Mills. For snarls that sound like human words can be heard whining through the wind. And all around are the footprints of a monster whose hunger cannot be sated... Cycle of the Werewolf.

What I liked about this story...  Well written and a good idea.  There were a lot of characters that I enjoyed learning more about.

What I didn't like about this story...OK, so this may be an unpopular opinion but this story was just not for me.  I couldn't get into it and I found the story to be slow.  By the time I was getting the gist of the story it was over, at only 128 pages long.  Its probably me with this story as I'm not overly fond of werewolf stories to be honest.  

Would I recommend?  If werewolf stories are your thing, definitely pick this up.  Always worth giving it a go.  This was just not for me.
