    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "It's a fun supernatural carnival exploration. If you want realistic horror this isn't it. But the carnival setting is creepy enough in itself."

      "From the terrifying picture on the front cover to the gripping final chapter, this is a thrill ride for lovers of horror and terror. Tony Brazil and his best friend Paul are eager for the circus to come to town, but the circus brings with it a vicious and bloodthirsty puppet, Waldo Cornpepper. Some of the writing is a little old fashioned, with the boys using phrases that'll make you think of "Grease", but that doesn't detract from the subtle scariness as it crescendos to full force."
