    Posted at Shelf Inflicted 25 year old Tommy O’Brien learns he has terminal cancer and has only a month or so to live He has no health insurance is deep in debt and recently lost his job Desperate for cash and wanting to provide for his wife and son he and two best friends Sherm and John plan to rob a bank The main character is very well drawn his suffering and desperation very real This story accurately portrays depressed US industrial towns and their inhabitants who have lost jobs and are unable to get out of poverty It is a bleak exploration of the finality of death and life's possibilities after learning you don't have much time left Tommy is a very likable character who’s easy to connect and empathize with He loves his family deeply and doesn’t want to hurt them by telling them he has cancer I wanted him to succeed even though he made a lot of wrong choices His wife and son were interesting characters who could have been developed further I also would have liked about Tommy’s feelings concerning his impending death This was an engaging and compelling story that was difficult to put down Once the bank robbery got under way the story became very predictable Tommy’s friend John is a little slow but basically a likable guy Sherm was always crazy his dark nature becoming apparent later on in the story Tommy just wanted the money; he never intended to hurt or kill anyone Things go wrong and hostages are taken – among them an old man with a heart problem a single mother and her son with unusual abilities a nutty religious fanatic and an overweight loner who likes comic booksMost of the hostages were stereotypes and not very well developed especially Martha so I really didn’t feel too much when the body count started to rise The most interesting hostage was the little boy with a healing touchReading Terminal is like watching a train wreck in slow motion You just know that nothing good will happen but you can’t stay away

    Brian Keene needs no introduction Needless to say I've read much of his work novels and novellas short stories and elouently written informative and sometimes in your face postings on his website The man can fucking write period I will admit to having this novel for years in my collection and knowing a little about it and somehow not getting around to reading it Talk about hidden gem A very dark one at thatTwenty five year old Tommy O'Brien married and father to a little boy finds out he has inoperable terminal cancer with only a month to live Then as fate would have it he gets laid off at his foundry job and keeps both of this from his wife While drinking one night with his best buddies also laid off Sherm and John he tells them he's dying and why Wanting to not leave his wife and son penniless as they're already not even scraping by Tommy and his friends decide to rob a bank in a nearby town And Sherm who's always been a little crazy seems to know a lot about this type of thing almost too much But they plan for the robbery as best they canbut you know that old saying about best laid plansThis novel is part crime story part suspense and yes has a bit of a supernatural angle too to satisfy us horror diehards But what resonated with me was how well Keene makes his characters live whether it be someone you love and relate to feel pity and remorse for or even someone you feel loathing and hatred for This book just breathed life while at times being sad heartbreaking and terrifying Highest possible recommendation

    This was a great book very well written with an intriguing protaganist who you feel as conflicted about as he does Totally satisfying ending which elevated the story even higher Keene is becoming a favorite Highly recommended

    A thriller that initially packs an emotional punch before giving way to typical Keene fair Terminal is a thought provoking exploration of the lengths one everyday man will go to when he is told he has less than a month to live Keene does a fantastic job of making the reader empathise with protagonist Tommy O'Brien so that when he decides to rob a bank he remains a sympathetic character and one most will root for Of course when a boy with healing abilities is unveiled and heads start disintegrating into red mist courtesy of the bullets that inevitably fly it's fair to suggest the tonal shift is abrupt This is Keene's stock trade however and he writes it better than well just about everybodyMy only significant issue was the overly convenient way the bank patrons talk about their histories so openly when not forced or cajoled to do so But otherwise Sherm as the friend who is than he seems becomes a fantastic foil for Tommy and it's the ratcheting of tension between these two that propels the story to its fitting conclusion4 Monster People in the Head for Terminal

    Possibly the most depressing book I've ever read but also one of the best You really put yourself in Tommy's shoes and wonder what you would do I can't recommend this one enough

    A good novel that appears to be about dead end life and a bank heist but is actually something much much
