3.5 stars actually. The book would have deserved a 4 if not for the lame end. Reading the last 25 pages made me feel like reading the previous 300 pages wasn't worth it for that sort of ending - adrenaline and anxiousness washed off before it was supposed to. Still, a great effort by the author. If not, then I wouldn't have read half of the book in one go.

Content warnings for the book- Sexual Harrasment, Incest, Extravagantly vivid murder scenes, Psychopathic rage and aggression. Definitely not

Yep, I'm at it again. This one fascinated me so much that I just HAD to read it again...fair warning, though....do NOT read this when you scare easily! What, once again, makes this such a frightening story is the fact of POSSIBILITIES....the 'what if'-factor. Isn't it possible that we can achieve astral projection and in that state be something or someone quite different than the person known to all? The 'shadow'-half of us all...the 'evil self'. Jung proposed such a thing...what if he was right ...more

I read this book over 20 years ago when I was young and into my horror books. Made the mistake of reading it by candlelight and it scared me to the point I've never read a horror book since. So yeah, pretty good as horror books go!

First book I ever read by Shaun, 24 years ago. There is just something about the over the top brutality that got me hooked.
