    Please note I originally read this in December 2011 I'm just adding formatting and the disclosure that I won my copy of this book through the LibraryThing Early Reviewer's program in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my ownBook Info Genre HorrorReading Level AdultRecommended for Fans of hard core horrorMy Synopsis Rocky Point NY has uite a history – first a local preacher burned down a house of ill repute – with all the ladies and customers still inside One of his descendants was involved with burning down a leper colony And the local sanitarium has than its fair share of atrocities including human drug testing and disposal of the corpses in order to hide that fact In the 1970s four high school kids – loners and misfits – joined forces and spent time partying in the cemetery calling themselves the Cemetery Club One night one of them brought out a Ouija board and they ended up waking up something Tony Randolph was blamed for the murders and spent 20 years in an institution Just a few days later it all starts to happen again The deaths the disappearances He stopped it once – can he do it again with the help of John Boyd Marisol Flores and Corey Miles – the original Cemetery Club?My Thoughts Let me make one thing clear – this is a horror novel There is gore and violence and demonic seeming entities and zombies of a sort; and a twist at the very end that will leave you breathless I loved it Faherty has a great grip on characterization and plot flow keeping the tension high while simultaneously letting us get to know the characters and some of their back story Wonderfully well written I can highly recommend this book for the fans of serious horror Folks who want happily ever after need not apply

    One of the advantages of writing a book is that other people send you their novels for free And since you want to send your books to other authors too it behooves you to pay it forward The only problem is when you read the book you are expected to write a review And let me tell you nothing is worse than telling somebody their book’s not very good Writing is a very personal thing and a book is in many ways a part of the author Telling somebody their book isn’t any good is like telling them they’re ugly It’s unpleasant Fortunately that’s a problem I won’t have with JG Faherty’s Cemetery Club Cemetery Club is the first book of Faherty’s I have read I know of him by reputation due to his highly acclaimed young adult novel Ghosts of Coronado Bay That effort was rewarded with a Bram Stoker Award Nomination He lost to Jonathan Maberry an honor unto itself So when I opened Cemetery Club I expected a YA horror romp Nothing could be further from the truthCemetery Club is a fun but visceral supernatural zombie novel It’s got plenty of blood and guts for the gore hounds while keeping that air of mystery and otherworldly dread that those with refined tastes prefer Set in the town of Rocky Point Cemetery Club tells the story of four friends who years before awakened a sleeping evil that seeks to possess and devour everything in its path Now it is awake again and only they can stop it Cemetery Club reminded me of some of Stephen King’s early works It has everything a horror novel needs—insane asylums tombs crypts disbelieving police heroes in need of redemption And it offers a new spin on the zombie genre I recommend Cemetery Club wholeheartedly to fans of a good fun horror yarn Faherty knows how to frighten and he knows how to entertain You can’t ask for much than that

    I've been reading a lot of JournalStone's authors recently and by and large I've been impressed So far I've really liked every title I've read and JG Faherty's CEMETERY CLUB is no exceptionI'm not going to go to great lengths to type out a plot synopsis Read the back of cover sell copy to get a better idea of what the book's about I'll just briefly mention this novel follows in the footsteps of Stephen King's IT Brian Keene's GHOUL Gord Rollo's CRIMSON Mary San Giovanni's THE HOLLOWER and similar books where a group of young people inadvertently wake a sleeping menace and must confront it sometimes years later to defeat it and save their hometown from a murderous rampage As such it holds few surprises except for Faherty's particular and fairly uniuetake on what kind of monster has been roused I've read dozens of novels with this same basic plot and frankly many of them blur together Plot wise CEMETERY CLUB is no exception although it's in good company However where Faherty excels and where his novel stands out above many of the others is in his characters Too often a lesser author certainly not the ones I mentioned above would rely on stock characters and trust in what they consider an innovative monster to carry the thrust of the book Faherty doesn't do that His characters are not only real but also have a rare uality; they're interesting In fact there were times when I wanted MORE detail and exposition about these people so I could know them better Even when it comes to the two characters who have suffered from unreuited attraction to each other for most of their lives until they finally culminate it the author manages to make this often hackneyed and overdone plot mechanism seem somehow different and above all interesting Moreover this author doesn't make the mistake as so many writers in this sub genre have done of trying to make the book an epic The monster is a local one and not fortunately one which globally threatens the fiber of the universe A recent book of this type which I read did just that and it came off as completely ridiculous This is an effective story of the main characters' individual triumphs and failings which I find much compelling than those books with save the world protagonists CEMETERY CLUB is not an earth shattering life changing book that will stay with you and have resonating emotional impact on you across the years It's just a damned fine read and well worth picking up While never brilliant it's universally very well done across the board The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is that there are two deus ex machina's plot wise which struck me as rather glaring especially since I think Faherty's a good enough author that he could have easily fixed them had they been drawn to his attention In the end I think CEMETERY CLUB is limited by the fact that it's a young people wake the monsters book While that's certainly a valid trope to work with it's obvious that Faherty is far talented that the limitations of this particular novel allow to show However CEMETERY CLUB made me want to read of Faherty's work which is a good thing and I look forward to getting my hands on one of his novels with a uniue plot

    This is a horror novel and it put me in mind of something reminscent of Stephen King The premise is a small town with a hive of shadowy creatures called Shades that rise up every so often throughout the history of the town The Shades can inhabit people and the people then become zombie like attacking and eating humans They also thrive on fear and negative energy There seems to be no predictions as to which humans will be posessed and which merely get eaten 20 years ago four teens who hung out in a cemetery raised these creatures and managed to banish them by using holy water and religion One of the four was accused of the murders that the zombies did and spent the next 20 years in an asylum He's out now but something has raised the Shades again The four reunite to try to contain the horde but they're bigger and stronger than ever While I don't normally read horror novels too often this was a win from Library thing for a review and it sounded ok I enjoyed the book which is well written I liked the main characters Their history is also introduced so you can get some background into each The only thing i found started to get redundant is the many scenes that described the murders After awhile it was just of the same A few of those could have been taken out and you would still get the idea that the murders were spreading further and further through the town Aside from that though I found the book well written and it kept me wanting to know what happened next how were the four going to defeat the Horde? Will there be any fatalities among our stalward Shade fighters? The ending and final confrontation was exciting and satisfying Overall uite a good read

    Review What happens when a few friends hang out at a cemetery and decide to mess with things they don't understand? A great gore filled supernatural thriller with the potential for film rights Cemetery Club will give readers a good dose of scare for such a small book It has a vaguely Stephen King esue feel a few well developed characters and a horde of grotesue alienszombies I found the characters and dialogue realistic and entertaining as was the story line although cliche at times I dislike when horror authors fall into the overused monster behind the medicine cabinet trap and there were a few instances where I felt that the plot was heading into a very stale and predictable place but overall I enjoyed the story and the pace The ending was typical of most horror novels something evil always seems to snake away no spoilers however the level of detail was worth the read Very creepy book with a chance for a seuel Recommended to adult horror fansRating Bounty's Out 355 I received this book from the author LibraryThing Early Reviewers in exchange for an honest and unbiased review

    20 years ago here we go 4 high school friends unknowingly woke evil spirits by playing with a ouija board in a cemetery while smoking pot Violent deaths broke out but one of the teens took the rap for the murders and went to a SanitariumTodd is now released and back in his small hometown of Rocky Point Coincidentally similar murders as those that happened all those years ago have started again and the town eyes Todd as the main suspect But Todd and his 3 old friends who had named themselves The Cemtery Club soon reuinte to once again battle the evil that nearly killed them allCEMETERY CLUB is a fun fast creepy tale that throws every horror trope into the mix mad doctors zombies possessions and demonic spirits all set against a small town mentality When our Club researches what they're up against they discover the town's dark past goes back much further than 20 years and each of their families had battled these spirits beforeI'd give this than 3 out of 5 stars if not for the fact the whole thing is just sofamiliarThis is well written pulp horror but probably won't appeal to genre fans looking for something different

    I won this book on Library Thing; this was the second book by this author that I've been exposed to The first one was a YA novel which was decent enough but I felt it lacked a bit in certain areas That is not the case with this book an adult novel; from the moment I picked it up I was hooked and finished it earlier than I'd expected The writing was great atmosphere characters etc all engaging and kept me interested from beginning to endMy ONLY complaint and it's a minor one was the very end POSSIBLE SPOILER you know in horror movies where everyone thinks it's all over and there's that last ridiculous scene that lets you know it isn't Yeah those are overdone in movies and I don't appreciate them too much in books either Other than that this is a really good book Recommended for fans of horror fiction

    Cemetery Club by JG Faherty is a book about a group of teenagers from a small town called Rocky Point The teenagers did some terrible things in their past As adults they have to come back to Rocky Point and put things right againI was thoroughly engrossed in this book This was an extremely frightening read The story kept me guessing the whole time The Cemetery Club is a book about how a towns deathly secrets combined with the supernatural come back to haunt them There some truly frightening and extremely gruesome moments in this book Reading this book will surely give me nightmares

    I received an Early Reviewer copy through LibrarythingIf this was made into a movie it would of course be a horror movie with all the gore ancient legends and creatures you could imagineThis is a story of friends just hanging out at the cemetery drinking smoking and maybe dabbling in things they really don't know about and what the conseuences will be This was an engrossing and well written book
