Comments The Hunting Season

  • Anthony Giordano

    "Originally released in 1987, The Hunting Season is a horror novel by blog favorite John Coyne which focuses on what I believe to be one of the more fertile horror sub-genres - inbred backwoods maniacs (see Deliverance, The Hills Have Eyes, Jack Ketchum's Offseason, its sequels, and more). It centers on a young woman named April Benard; widowed at the opening of the novel, now remarried and looking to turn a house in the Catskills into a base of operations for a career-defining anthropological s [...]

  • Edwina Callan

    The review by Stephen King - on the back cover - was all the motivation I needed to dive right into this book, especially since it is Halloween weekend."Readers are going to scream out loud Not to be read at night "So read these dire warnings from the King of Horror.Methinks he must not read much!Yes, I did enjoy the book and had a hard time putting it down but the impulse to scream never once struck me nor did I suddenly develop an overwhelming fear of the dark.Just an average thriller but pe [...]

    Rather than the expected frisson of horror fiction, Coyne gives fans a novel with artificial crises and characters about whom he seems ambivalent, judging by their inconsistent behavior. The locale is a remote place in the Catskills where the natives are monstrously deformed after centuries of incestuous mating. They are the objects of research by anthropologist April Benard, who arrives from Manhattan with her husband Marshall and their offspring from earlier marriages. Supposedly the husband a [...]

    The good part? It was short. The bad (weird) part? The plot revolves around families of incest living in the Catskill mountains. If that wasn't enoughwe get a murder spree complete with blood and violence. Strange to say the least, but at least it was entertaining in some bizarre, 'other-world' way.

  • Melody

    I liked this novel, but it was a little bit predictable I WAS surprised, however, to learn some of the "kin"folks' secrets! I did expect somewhat of a different ending, but my ending would've fit more comfortably into the story's "predictable" range. I was surprised that the book was such a quick read -- after I'd had it resting on my "to be read" table for over a year!

  • Lee

    When a generation of "hill people" inbreds, turn into maniac, blood thirsty little creaturess go bad for April and her kids.With some insight/background on an inbred clan, and the cycle that could happeneidcatble, but enough twisted horror action. 3.5 stars.

  • Jeanne

    A good story, suspenseful.

  • John Ulrich

    Freakyary and freaky. You will flip lights on in the house at night when you walk to get a glass of water. Parts of this book still make me shudder. Equal parts freaky and frightening.

  • Dr. Awesome

    has a lot of potential but wastes it with unlikable characters, corny stereotypes, and a predictable storyline

  • Papalodge

    Consanguineous breeding in the Catskills - continuously since the 1700s - OH MY !!!This book really caught my fancy - and oh, the second husbandere's a trip.
