    Inhaltsangabe

    "Carrion Comfort is one of the three greatest horror novels of the 20th century. Simple as that." (Stephen King) 

    "Epic in scale and scope but intimately disturbing, Carrion Comfort spans the ages to rewrite history and tug at the very fabric of reality. A nightmarish chronicle of predator and prey that will shatter your world view forever. A true classic." (Guillermo del Toro) 

    "Carrion Comfort is one of the scariest books ever written. Whenever I get asked the question Who's your favorite author? my answer is always Dan Simmons." (James Rollins) 

    "One of the few major reinventions of the vampire concept, on a par with Jack Finney's Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Richard Matheson's I Am Legend, and Stephen King's Salem's Lot. (David Morrell) 

    THE PAST...

    Caught behind the lines of Hitler's Final Solution, Saul Laski is one of the multitudes destined to die in the notorious Chelmno extermination camp. Until he rises to meet his fate and finds himself face to face with an evil far older, and far greater, than the Nazis themselves...

    THE PRESENT... 

    Compelled by the encounter to survive at all costs, so begins a journey that for Saul will span decades and cross continents, plunging into the darkest corners of 20th century history to reveal a secret society of beings who may often exist behind the world's most horrible and violent events. Killing from a distance, and by darkly manipulative proxy, they are people with the psychic ability to "use" humans: read their minds, subjugate them to their wills, experience through their senses, feed off their emotions, force them to acts of unspeakable aggression. Each year, three of the most powerful of this hidden order meet to discuss their ongoing campaign of induced bloodshed and deliberate destruction. But this reunion, something will go terribly wrong. Saul's quest is about to reach its elusive object, drawing hunter and hunted alike into a struggle that will plumb the depths of mankind's attraction to violence, and determine the future of the world itself...

    Story okay, bad narrators

    The accent of the narrators is so annoying that I cannot continue listening to this book. I'll give it back and recommend you to avoid it.

    Gritty and unconventional in a good sense

    I found the book to be very entertaining and at the best tines truly unsettling. It also aged quite well for it being published in the 80s. Storywise some of the action sequences drew out a little too long, but that is just a minor critique.
    The narrators do a fabulous job, especially the narrator of Melanie. A very minor point of critique is the pronunciation of the German, but that was more fun than anything else.
    All in all Dan Simmons impresses with this book and I'm looking forward to diving deeper into his œuvre.
