This book is dedicated to the ogre who lived in my bedroom closet. I wrote this book for hitchhikers who vanish, leaving only their jackets behind, and for dead linemen who prowl the turnpikes. It’s for Te House of the Seven Gables. It’s for the wormy things that crawled the floor around my bed at night. This book is dedicated to Lizzie Borden and the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow. It’s for Te Black Cat and Te Dunwich Horror and for all those forbidden, sleepless, childhood nights I spent reading Something Wicked This Way Comes beneath the sheets by flashlight.

I loved the book The Pines and look forward to reading the rest. Dark Scribe Magazine THE SHORE by Robert Dunbar is a sequel to his horror novel THE PINES.

The fish-the stunted sunfish and carp of the barrens-began to drift up from their murky holes to feed on insects caught on the surface. a splash, explosive in the prevailing hush. Then broadly circling ripples would spread across the width of the stream, lap softly against the crumbling banks, and vanish. At the water’s edge, a large shape grew gradually more distinct-a man on the bank. Unmoving, he’d stood thus for some time, staring at something lodged upon the rocks

The Pines is set in deep The Pines of New Jersey which Dunbar truly makes a terrifying place.

I picked up The Streets with the intention of reading it when I figured out that this was actually a series. I didn’t feel right starting out with the third book so I decided to pick up The Pines. My instincts were good on this one for sure. The Pines is set in deep The Pines of New Jersey which Dunbar truly makes a terrifying place. Everyone is uptight and on edge because there seems to be violence everywhere. There is something supernatural amongst the pine barrens but some of the younger locals don’t have it figured out yet.

Deep within the desolate pine barrens, a series of macabre murders draws ever nearer to an isolated farmhouse where a woman struggles to raise her strange, disturbed son. The boy seems to have a psychic connection to something in the dark forest, something unseen…and evil. The old-timers in the region know the truth of the legendary creature that stalks the pine barrens. And they know the savagery it’s capable of.

You might think you've figured out "who done it" (or, rather, who's doing it!) at different times, but you're wrong. I have to wonder what the current-day residents of the Pines think about a book like this because it doesn't present ANYBODY in a good light but, if you can stand characters fashioned after an old stereotype and stop wanting to reach into the book and shake some sense into a few people (in this case, that's a GOOD thing!) plus pretty much non-stop tension, you'll probably really like this book. While I didn't watch Snooki, et al, in the TV program Jersey Shore, I have the feeling those characters are just an update of the folks in THE PINES. The book is sort of like "Who Goes There," basis for THE THING movies, in that you'll really wonder "Who goes there?" SPOOKY!

I enjoyed The Pines. I sure wouldn't want to work on an ambulance there. I remember Robert from back in the Deep Outside Magazine days when we both had stories published there. The way the people lived in the pines reminded me of the novel Tobacco Road, where you shake your head and say, "No one lives like this," as you know in reality there are inbred people who live like the characters in the novel. The only drawback I felt was that I had trouble following some of the characters and knowing who they were. But that's just me when I deal with a large cast of characters. Someone else may not have that problem. Great writing, and I for sure will never go into the Pines if I'm ever in Jersey.

I decided to pick up this Robert Dunbar book after seeing the third installment of this series called The Streets. I picked up The Streets with the intention of reading it when I figured out that this was actually a series. I didn’t feel right starting out with the third book so I decided to pick up The Pines. My instincts were good on this one for sure. The Pines is a very dark horror book with a capital H. The copy I read was a 2009 Dorchester/Leisure 350pg mass market paperback. I am admittedly new to the game here but it seems like they had some super solid horror lit coming out during that time.

The Pines is set in deep The Pines of New Jersey which Dunbar truly makes a terrifying place. Everyone is uptight and on edge because there seems to be violence everywhere. There is something supernatural amongst the pine barrens but some of the younger locals don’t have it figured out yet. The story centers around Athena, a deformed but not disabled widow who is trying to keep her head above water by working and understanding her disturbed son. After her husband died it really through her life into a tailspin. Other more pressing things start to happen though. People start dying in brutal and gory fashions. The investigations and rumors waffle between packs of wild dogs to serial killers. The elders of the pines and the folklore suggest other more evil things are the causes of these disturbing events.

Aside from the plot being a great one the writing itself being superbly dark and gothic. The circumstances are harsh and unforgiving but you can’t help sympathizing with Athena’s plight. There are a fair amount of characters in the book and they are well developed and believable. I thought to myself that the ambiance of this book reminds me slightly of A Choir Of Ill Children by Tom Piccirrilli, which is one of my favorite books, and then I saw Picc blurbed Mr. Dunbar and it makes sense. I don’t really have any complaints, I just wanted to know a little more about the beast terrorizing the pines but I am hoping that will be satisfied when I read the second of this trilogy. I do intend to complete the trilogy. I guess you can’t give it all away in the first book. If you like good classic horror then you should enjoy The Pines.

WELL, it took me awhile to get into this book but halfway into it, it was getting good! And the ending floored me. Was a pretty darn good book. Hard to read the language at first but I caught on to it. That's why I gave it a Four Star rating. He's a very good Author. I'll be looking for more of his books.

This book was so frightening and the fact that it was based on a certain reality made it more so. I cringed at the idea that such a monster could actually exist in the forest known as The Pines. I was ignorant of such a fact when I started reading, though I'm sure at some point I had heard of the place and/or read of it.
What started out as a seemingly mild tale quickly escalated to pure horror as I read of the first victim in the tale, a potential rape victim by the sick old man who had picked her up roadside while she was hitchhiking. At her refusal he put her out of the car at midnight along a dark stretch of road in no-man's land.
The story began during the month of August in one of the hottest summers in years. As she trekked through the pines believing it would be a short cut to where she wanted to go, she realized that someone or something was tracking her more than likely with malice in mind. She foolishly called out and of course no answer came until she slipped and fell into a bog where she was brutally assailed and slaughtered by something with long sharp claws and a multitude of teeth which tore into her as if she were a T-bone steak, rare and juicy to a starving man.
Other victims followed, those who had heard the legend of the Pines but shucked them all off as just that, Legends. That is until one by one they too became fodder for the beast.
Horror lovers will be held spell bound by this novel and be left being with a feeling of being very happy they do not live in the area of these woods. I know I felt that way. Written by a master story teller, this book set him on a road to fame as an author. You will live the tale of The Pines as if you were there watching every moment.

I first read this book while locked up in 1994. It is by far one of the best horror/mystery stories that I ever read. Scary - There were chapters in this story where I was actually afraid to turn the page. Neither Steven King nor Koontz has ever written a story as intriguing as this. It is re-print at this time. I believe that the re-print is going for $69. I paid under $5 for my copy through Amazon.com. My copy was used. I would have been willing to pay much more for my used copy of this book.
