Scavenger

Scavenger - David Morrell I made it to page 100 of 368 of Scavenger before making the executive decision to shut this one down. I think the decision to bill this book as a sequel to Creepers was a poor one. Completely different type of story, and way too pulpy and unbelievable to continue. Skimmed through to the end and it didn't seem to improve in the slightest. David Morrell's characteristic wonderful writing is absent in this book, and seems as though he took a bare-bones plot and tried to patch it up with hundreds of boring and barely rewritten factoids pulled from the internet.

Comparisons in other reviews have been made to the movie Saw, but I think if you want an example of the best execution of this particular plot, watch the movie CUBE.
