Interesting book. I liked it.
As other reviewers have noted, a number of the monsters (and their traits) will be familiar to anyone who's seen modern horror films - but thats not a bad thing. In my opinion, the monsters are different enough that players will not spot the connection (or the solution) too quickly. I'll certainly transpose a few of the creatures into my CoC and Blood games to provite a bit of variation from the usual monster stock for those games.
I'd disagree with other reviewers, who I think have over emphasised the 'shock' elements of the book. Don't let it put you off, TBOUH is no more 'shocking' than a typical 15 rated horror film. Having said that, I still wouldn't let my young son read it before bedtime.
A good read. Stylish, plus lots of useful content and ideas.

No big problem, just unusual (and uneccessary).<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
