Comments Demon's Door

  • Deb Atwood

    Our protagonist Jim Rook is a kindhearted, self-effacing, rather shy teacher of remedial college English who sees dead people. I sort of fell in love with this character and his wry wit, and I think I might enjoy reading a different novel in the Rook series.However, I cannot recommend this book.Part of this stems from personal taste. I really prefer my ghosts troubled and vulnerable rather than evil and vengeful. I rarely make an exception in my preference (and in this perhaps I am doing a disse [...]

    I'm a huge Masterton fan and have always enjoyed his Jim Rook series. This one fell a little flat with me, however. I think listening to it as an Audible book had a lot to do with that. For anyone who is not familiar with this series: Jim Rook is a teacher for challenged and troubled students at a community college in Los Angeles, CA. He has a talent for connecting with his students but he also has a secret talent for seeing the spirit world. Typically with each new book, Jim starts a semester a [...]

    This past weekend, I read both Swimmer (Jim Rook Series) (Bk. 5) and Demon's Door (Jim Rook Series), and my impression of both is basically the same, so I'm combining them for one review.These books are fine if you are in the mood for fast-paced, supernatural action. I'm reading another book right now by a certain very famous horror writer from Bangor, Maine, and, in the time that it takes that author to introduce you to all the main characters, Masterton has already gotten you through that, kil [...]

    There is a surprising lack of horror in Demon's Door, which offers a plot akin to those found in Korean horror cinema. It's an original angle from Masterton, however there's not enough substance nor enough tension to bring it up to the author's usual standard. It's relatively short with no requirement to have read any previous Rook stories. It does offer a few genuine shock moments and is above the par of many other horror novels, just not up the usual Masterton bar.


  • Kylie

    I had never read any Masterton before, let alone any of the Jim Rook books, but the premise of this interested me. In action it is like a Korean horror version of Groundhog Day done in the style of Drag Me to Hell; a little funny, a little violent, characterisation realistic but on the side of caricature. I was really quite enjoying it but the ending seemed very anti-climactic. I am open to reading more of his books in the future.


  • Baz

    Not as exciting as I'd hoped. I read another of Graham Masterton's books some time back & wasn't enthralled by it then but I forgot. Shan't read any more - bit silly for my taste.

    This was quite a very engaging read. I do enjoy novels where the main character is both sinister, but also unreachable.The driver for the storyline in this novel did not make sense, and this was intentional. I turned each page wondering what was going on. With this, one can be placed almost in the mind of the central character, as he lives out his nightmare.


  • Carole

    Awesome thrilling read. At the very top of my favorites list.


  • Chip

    I honestly had trouble with this one, but it ended well.


  • Lissa

    I can't believe that I didn't finish a Graham Masterton book. Nothing to draw me to keep reading.


  • Garryvivianne

    Thought this would be a good scary read like Pet Cemetary. This wasn't what I thought it would be. I read it all the way through tho since I started it. Felt like it was a waste of my time.


  • Crystal

    One of the novels I devour in less than two hours whilst waiting in the library. It was a decent read.


  • Lynne Byrne

    Fast moving and hard to put down, looking forward to reading more about jim & his demons!


  • kate maguire

    GrippingAs with all the Jim Rook novels another special class,another demon- Always well written and a real pageturner. Will not disappoint.


  • Lisa Keipp

    Odd switching about makes story hard to follow at first, but a quick read and a decent enough scary story.


  • Plum-crazy

    The Jim Rook is another favourite of mine & while I don't reckon this is the best in the series it's still streets ahead of the majority other horror books that I've read.
