I really liked The Regulators a lot better than desperation. The whole interplay between the possessed Seth, and Audrey was great. I also enjoyed that the book, in the style the great novel Dracula was written (I can't remember the name for this type of literature where different things are interposed ie journals, letters, etc) We have Audrey's diary, screenplays (phony) and letters to tell the story along with traditonal writing. I loved this book because of the interplay between Seth and Audrey. The ending, corny though it may be left me in tears! The use of such commonplace items as Spaghettios and Hershey's syrup, and kids toys helped make this book great. My only question is, in Desperation God is such a big part of the story yet not mentioned in Regulators at all. Why is this?
