Cold Skin is an odd, yet decent enough read that feels like a cross of gothic horror tinged with the ideas and words of HP Lovecraft. Pinol is not as great a wordsmith as Lovecraft and since this is a modern book, Cold Skin's style feels incredibly dated. Still it's a bizarre enough read, teetering on the boundaries of sanity and insanity, of almost cosmic horror machinations that for any fan of Lovecraft's style will find at least some enjoyment here. Otherwise stay clear.
