Beyond the sparkling Hawaiian beaches, masked by the deceptive beauty of the rainforest, evil awaits sixteen-year-old Michael Sundquist and his mother, Katharine, an anthropologist who has come to the Islands to study the unusual skeletal remains unearthed on the volcanic flanks of Haleakala, Maui. Yet far below the black depths of the Pacific a mysterious substance snakes through undiscovered fissures in the ocean floor, as nature itself seems to portend the terror to come.

I have been a fan of Saul since I was a child. Starting out with his first books I have worked my way through his catalog over the decades. Several titles slipped by and now I am filling in the gaps of his work. The Presence is a pretty good story. The ending is kind of anti climatic for a Saul story. The characters are bit dry but still believable. I would like to know more of why the villain was doing what he was doing and be able to dig a little deeper in his persona. Other than the latter the story is good and fairly solid. ( )

I was remembering how much John Saul scared me when I first started reading him as a teen. I decided to relive the past and check out a John Saul book from the library.

[b:The Presence|6557|The Presence|John Saul|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320393129s/6557.jpg|681434] is more of a science fiction book, with an element of horror. I thought it was a unique idea and the book was very interesting from start to finish. It was not particularly scary, but was very suspenseful. The ending wrapped things up a little too conveniently for my liking, but it was still a very enjoyable book. This is now one of my favorite John Saul books. ( )

Ugh... Strike 1 for this author. I really want to like his stuff so I will give him another chance (or 2). We'll see how it goes.
This book was well written but the story failed to draw me in. It just wasn't Interesting. 😒 ( )

Read as an ebook from the library, however I do own a paperback edition. I liked this one quite a bit. It kept me interested throughout the entire book and I liked the way it ended. ( )

To all my friends on Maui, and especially to the Maui Writers Conference and School, which has enriched my life not only as a writer, but in every other way as well. As all of us know, Maui No Ka Oi--Maui truly is the best, a paradise on earth.
