For once I chose the right amount of Halloween reading and timed it perfectly, finishing the last of my three Halloween books on Halloween!

Darker Than You Think is a werewolf story with a twist, supposedly the best known American werewolf novel. And it is an enjoyable book, well paced, easy to read, imaginative, engaging. The characters aren't very fully-sketched, more types than characters, but that doesn't detract from the story. It is a bit maddening that the protagonist is so blind to the bleedingly obvious — he does eventually reach the right conclusions, just usually long after the reader did! Williamson does a good job creating the right mood and unfolding elements of the story. It reads a bit like a grown man indulging a teenage fantasy, but it's a lot of fun nonetheless.
