    • Really enjoyed this, as one of the first book's i've read of Graham Masterton's I have to say I was impressed! The plot flowed and the location's!! wow! graham has a way with word's that makes you feel as if you're there in the location he's writing about. I went to Tennessee and Thailand! Really spooky read into the world of occult Buddhism.

    • I love Graham Masterton. He's got an amazing imagination and he's a really great writer. Death Trance is not his best, but his average is still much better than most author's best. There were some character actions that didn't ring true to me, but overall the book was very interesting and I loved the settings and the background. I'd definitely recommend this book.

    • Most people (well, when I say 'most' here, I mean either people who follow horror novels or people who know bad 1970s movies) might recall or associate Masterton with a very odd title, 'The Manitou' which became a flick starring Tony Curtis. The quality of that movie is no reflection on the creativity and inventiveness of Mr. Masterton, the author. Masterton is a rather unsung horror writer similar to John Saul; just one of those guys who plugged along throughout the 70s --regularly appearing in [...]

    • If you've read my other reviews for Masterton's books, you know I adore the man's work. This is no different and only strengthened my opinion. Death Trance is enshrouded with the cold, chilling feeling reminiscent to The Chosen Child (although that one still won the eerier award), with some scenes so suspenseful the scenes should be given as an example of what the word means in a dictionary. As with many of his novels, he combines intriguing history and religion/culture to push deeper impact.The [...]

    • Haven't read this as much as others in my collection & this re-read hasn't increased my love of it. It's a great read - how could it be otherwise?! - but for me it's just not got the appeal of say "Walkers" or "Prey" etc etc. All I can put it down to is Randolph, for all he went through I didn't have much sympathy for him & wasn't willing him on to beat the Cottonseed Association, he seemed more of a secondary character, without the attraction of Jack Reed & David Williams who time a [...]

    • Evocative in places and highly readable. Could have done without the gratuitous perversion that is the rape/murder scene. I just don't see why some of that nastiness was necessary. And like his other books, suffers from a piss poor ending. I found the ending a bit ridiculous, won't spoil it by saying why though.

    • In 'Death Trance', highly successful president of Clare Cottonseed company Randolph Clare watches his life gradually fall apart, beginning with the arson of one of his plants. Next, his wife and kids are brutally tortured and murdered. Overwhelmed with grief and regret, he embarks on a quest with an Indonesian doctor, Ambara to undergo the death trance where he can meet his loved ones again. However, a series of devastating consequences awaits The author did an excellent job portraying the wide [...]

    • Well, I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Death Trance was, for me, a bad book. I can't say that it was bad for one main reason or several small ones because it just seemed bad altogether. The only positive thing I can say about it is that it shows, yet again, that Masterton can take on any setting and any story no matter how crazy it sounds. Like a lot of his other work (that I have read anyway), Death Trance involves ancient rituals with dangerous consequences if performed wrong. The mai [...]

    • Graham Masterton está longe de ser um Stephen King; no entanto, o autor em questão, é provavelmente dos escritores mais geniais no que toca à literatura pulp de terror. Death Trance é o equivalente cinematográfico a um daqueles filmes de terror ultra-violentos, série-B, dos anos 80; sim, os diálogos são ligeiramente foleiros, os personagens agem de forma incoerente em determinadas situações, e a violência é gratuitaiás, mais que gratuita: o sangue escorre aos litros, e a crueldade [...]

    • Margarine-mafiaen: Randolph Clare underbyder os. Dræb hans familie!Lejebøller: YessirRandolph: Argh, min familie er død, ve og smerte.Læge: Ved du, at de i min religion ikke tror på, at folk forsvinder, bare fordi de dør?Randolph: Flyv mig fluks til Bali.Unge, smukke sekretær: Jeg tager med, for jeg kan godt lide dig.Lejebøller: Vil han tale med sin døde kone? Men hun kan jo vidne imod os! Hurtigt, efter ham.Dæmoner: Gwaaaaaar!Mig: The silly it burns!

    • Graham Masterton is the master of horror. Not for the faint of hearte stories can have some pretty bruital scenes in them. Ends with me wanting to know what happens next. The only faw that I can find with the book is that it wraps up to quickly which I have found with alot of his books. A great read though.

    • Ta książka znajduje się wysoko na mojej liście ulubionych, gdyż główny bohater jest postacią, którą darzyłem wielką sympatią. To był ten bohater, z którym się utożsamiałem. Książka była momentami smutna, taka z rodzaju tych, o których potem się myśli.

    • Another early book by GM. I enjoy his earlier stuff slightly more than his later stuff. This book has it all ie sex, violence, gore and a very good story

    • First read this 28 years ago, so it was long overdue a re-read. Enjoyed it just as much the second time around. Not one for the faint-hearted!
