I literally could not put this book down. However, in retrospect I couldn't sleep after reading it either. I loved the authors use of first person. I think that this book is well worth reading. It's worth the time, energy and whatever money the author is asking. The way this book is written and the layout of the story is one I have never seen before, and I have been reading for more than 30 years. I have never been so enthralled in a book and I must confess this is not my type of read. I general ...more

I have been an aficionado of the horror genre most of my life. The fascination began as a child, staying up late and watching "Creature Features" late at night with my father. I grew up in one of the golden eras of horror films--Hammer Horror was in full swing and as I grew older the iconoclasts came on the scene--Carpenter, Craven and Argento.
