Review of The Regulators

The RegulatorsThe Regulators by Richard Bachman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If I had to summarize this book in a few words, Murphy’s Law on steroids would be the accurate. The beginning of the book starts pretty normal on Popular street, but it quickly goes wrong as strange vans start shooting up the neighborhood. The survivors of this event try to escape as the world around popular street slowly changes around to something that is part old western, and part a child’s drawings brought to life courtesy of a malevolent entity known as Tak possessing Seth. As the events spiral out of control around them the few remaining survivors hold up in a house after a failed escape from this new reality (if it can be called). Seth’s aunt Audrey and Mr Marinville brave Audrey’s house to try to rescue Seth from Tak’s control. Seth however manages to outwit Tak in a final desperate attempt to reach out for help and costing him his life, along with his aunts.
