Hi All! So, the way I discovered, The Sentinel, was through Jeff Konvitz himself. We met, went out, enjoyed each others company. Then he told me about the book. I love a good horror read! So he gave me a copy and I read it. An easy read for a scary weekend... it was fun. Then I read The Guardian,...

This was a very entertaining and addictive read. It was mysterious. I didn't know what was going on til the very end. Halfway through it became sort of a whodunit, but I wasn't disappointed because it still kept its horror aspect. The ending was surprising and had some very interesting elements t...

Well... this book was ok. Allison got on my nerves sometimes but not so much that I hated her or couldn't finish the book. The story was very interesting. I never saw that ending coming!

Great book, it has this sinister sense of foreboding the whole way through that makes it more and more suspenseful. Anyone who likes or would definitely love this one.

Are Strange things happening? Or are those hallucinations?
Is it god or the devil?
Suspense! Horror! I loved the book and I love the movie! Totally scary!

I'm pretty nostalgic about '70s Satan horror, both books and movies, and this book really fit the feeling. I'm an atheist myself, and what I find enjoyable about the religious horror of that era is that it has that kind of "Tales from the Dark Side" melting reality to reveal a supernatural unders...

I enjoy scary books, but add Satan and a priest and I can't put them down. Catholic thing, I'm sure. For fans of Ira Levin's Rosemary's Baby, the Sentinel borrows obviously and heavily. Both books are set in New York City, and both begin with a pretty young catholic girl hunting for the perfect a...
