I bought "Down the Road" on the glowing review given by Doctor Pus in the "Library of the Living Dead" and I must say that I wasn't disappointed!! It took a while to get hold of it over here in the UK but it was well worth the wait.
Loved the people I met, especially George, who wasn't your typical 'good guy' main character; not averse to mowing down cops in cold blood etc.
I was prepared by the Doctor (not THE Doctor...I mean Dr Pus...) that there were shocks in store but I don't think I've been so affected by the outrageously unfair death of a secondary character as I was with M...(trying not to spoil it for anyone else). The ending about George was predictable but that's not a criticism. He had earned that after all he had been through and it was the only fitting conclusion that could have been written for him.
My only disappointment was how short the story was but now I have started the sequel I'm not that bothered!!
Thanks for a wonderful read
