    Ok, even though I rated it in the last round decided to mark it as never read, as I only of general vague memories of the book and how it made me feel, but not enough detail to answer these questions.
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606. (could just trade limitation sheets).

    But I do seem to recall that I enjoyed it, so its hard to punish it for that. If Roadwork was still in the tournament, I would do that, since I don't even remember if I liked it or not.

    I love this book, one of my all-time favorites.

    For those that gave character development a C, why? The book is all about the characters. You really get inside their head and feel what they are going through. Curious if you guys are just not a fan of the characters or something?

    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (pablo)
