Brian Keene's Castaways

Posted by Dianna Taylor on Wednesday, April 6, 2011, In : Books 


There is a lot to be said about Brian Keene's book Castaways; it was a fast and action-packed read.  Keene knows how to bring various classical horror elements together to make a solid and entertaining story.  This book is a cross between the television show Survivors, some classical cannibalistic-tribal-island movie that I haven't seen before and a late night Coast to Coast AM crypto zoologist broadcast.  There is a brief reference to the Labyrinth Mythos (see previous Keene posts), which is...
