    One thought on “Abaddon”

    1. Bob Larson, Abaddon (Nelson, 1993)Bob Larson's Abaddon, the sequel to his novel Dead Air, is possibly the funniest book I have read in the past decade. In many ways, Larson reminds me of the kind of televangelist who's out to get ratings and nothing else; he attacks popular culture (even when it's not really popular, as in this case), does just enough research to get some glitzy facts, and then either makes up the rest or completely misunderstands what he's seeing as he goes along. And like said [...]

    2. Even though this book is a bit dated, it has a compelling story line. It picks up a few years after Bob Larson's earlier book, Dead Air. Radio man, Wes Bryant, has married the heroine from the last book, Annette, and is now Jennifer's stepfather. He and his wife are noticing some strange behavior from their teenaged daughter, which they eventually learn is a latent result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father and his Satanic cult. Her fascination with a death metal music group lea [...]

    3. Definitely an easier-to-read-than-the-previous book. I read it completely through in a single 24 hour period. It was also far less graphic than the preivous. I will not go into my viewpoints on the material, concepts or ideology of the subject matter in the book. I'll leave that for the debators. His writing style, however, did make it difficult to put the book down. My interest was kept throughout the story (although my conclusions or acceptance may not be as simple to relay).

    4. The sequel to Larson's 'dead Air' is the continuing story of the raido talk host who is investigating satanic cults involved in kidnapping, murder, and corruption in high places. Not quite as good a story as the first book. I think 'Dead Air' was more within the author's real life and easier to write.
