  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I did overall enjoy this book. The story is definitely unique and not like anything I've read before. However, it is so long, much too long in my opinion. Whatever tension was built up quickly fizzled out because it took so long to get to the meat of the story. When things were happening the descriptions were definitely image-inducing and gruesome. Many had me squirming in my chair. But when it came to the fear and anxiety I want to feel for characters in a horror story there just wasn't any. 

Not the best horror book I've read but definitely not the worst either.
