Review: Becoming by Glenn Rolfe

Becoming by Glenn Rolfe

My Rating:

Becoming took me back to the horror books of my teens, to the creature features with cheesy covers that my love of horror was built on, and created a feeling of nostalgia that added to my enjoyment of the story.

Whilst I enjoyed the plot it was the characters that made this one. Although it's a pretty short read the characters were well fleshed out and the dynamics between the different characters made them feel real. There was an overall dark atmosphere but I would have liked the horror to have been turned up a touch. Don't get me wrong, there were enough scares and crazy goings on to appeal to most horror lovers, but personally, I would have liked more.

All in all, it was a quick and fun read and it easily held my attention throughout, however, I would have liked to have known more about the lake, what resides there, and the history behind it.

Something ancient has wormed its way up from the earth....
A change has come today.

After Michele Cote's best friend disappears, no one believes her story of about the thing responsible for his abduction. Forced to figure out the mystery for herself, Michele encounters terror she has never known, and witnesses the impossible.

When other members of the community begin to change or vanish, Sheriff Shane Davis must look beyond reason to stop the evil seeping into this small town. With help from an unlikely source, Sheriff Davis will come face-to-face with the truth.

You can't destroy what you don't understand. For the small town of Avalon, Maine, the future is about change...for better or worse.


Praise for BECOMING

"A vital part of this generation." -Brian Keene, author of THE COMPLEX and THE RISING 
“Old-fashioned creature feature…BECOMING is raw horror.” – The Haunted Reading Room 

“Classic horror. Original and entertaining.” – Catherine Cavendish, author of THE PENDLE CURSE and SAVING GRACE DEVINE 

“BECOMING shows that Rolfe is indeed, becoming a force to be reckoned with. Back in the day when John Saul, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King, were getting started in their horror writing careers, this was the type of story they would write and I would want to read.” – Horror Novel Reviews 

“BECOMING is a creepy horror tale with depth. Rolfe proves he's a master of capturing the essence of small towns--how communities come together, for good or ill. Claustrophobic!” - J.H. Moncrieff, author of CITY OF GHOSTS and MONSTER IN OUR WAKE
