So juicy. So creepy! I couldn't put it down.

A well done book. It made me never want to eat mushrooms again. Ever. This book was borderline too much for me, not necessarily because of the horror but because of triggering content. I definitely won’t be buying the book (I read it on Libby). I give it 3.5 stars.

If you're a fan of The Haunting of Hill House, think the British are creepy AF, or are wary of mushrooms, you'll like this book. I'm all three of those and I enjoyed it.

Having said that, it is very predictable, and not in a spooky "oh no this'll happen and they don't know it" way. I'm by no means a horror expert and I guessed 70% of it. it also has a bit of a tendency to over-explain. Having said that, it is solid mushroom horror.
