On a cold October night, five people gather in a run-down motel on the Jersey shore and begin preparations to break into the Paragon Hotel. The five people are "creepers," the slang term for urban explorers: city archaeologists with a passion for investigating abandoned buildings and their dying secrets. On this evening, they are joined by a reporter who wants to profile them - anonymously, as this is highly illegal activity - for a New York Times article. And after the group enters the rat-infested tunnel leading to the hotel, it becomes clear that he will get much more than he bargained for. Danger, terror, and death await the creepers in a place ravaged by time and redolent of evil.… (mais)

Creepers is quite the captivating novel, it covers a group of urban explorers who decide to visit The Paragon Hotel, an art deco hotel in Ashbury Park, New Jersey before it's pulled down. What seems straight forward slowly turns decidedly less so as upon entry to the old building the visitors find not only a building teeming with life including strangely mutated vermin, despite being apparently sealed but also a swimming pool that's full of water, despite an apparent abandonment of 40 years.

From here there are a few more twists to the story as the initial motives are not quite what was stated and the building has more mysteries to offer.

I enjoyed the story and found it quite a hard book to put down as you just want to keep going to find out where things are going and what certain events will unfold into. I was a little disappointed that mutated vermin didn't factor into the story to much of a degree, I had been expecting there to be some sort of viral action happening based on the mentions of plague, west nile, hanta in the opening pages however they didn't really factor much into the story beyond being creepy. That being said, it was still a good reading experience. ( )

A guy claiming to be a reporter follows a group of urban explorers into an old, abandoned hotel one night, and they all get way more than that for which they had bargained.

Not my cuppa, really. ( )

The Paragon Hotel, built in the heyday of Asbury Park, NJ, is now rundown and abandoned, like much of the city itself. The hotel's former owner was a rich eccentric, which makes it an ideal location for urban explorers known as "creepers" to infiltrate. One group of creepers finds more danger than they bargain for.

The basis of the story was good and the book generally flowed quickly and smoothly. It started out interesting but towards the end it became predictable, Morrell did do a nice job of describing an environment that I was able to picture in all of its darkness, but I feel more could have been done to have the characters interact better and really react to the dank environment they found themselves in. The dialogue was a bit cheesy and cliched, but there were plot-twists to make you forget that the conversations sounded a little contrived. In the end this book was a bit of fluff and a quick read, I would be interested in reading the second book and hopefully the Balenger character will be more fleshed out. ( )

Not what I expected when I picked this book up but within a few pages I found it drew the reader into the story. On a Saturday in October 5 urban explorers who call themselves "Creepers" set out to explore the Paragon Hotel that had been closed up since 1968. Entering through a storm tunnel they were at first excited and impressed by the glamour of the by-gone days of grandeur, Soon they found they were not alone and what was there had no desire to make their stay and enjoyable one.
