i found this book really interesting since i like ghost stories.i like the way the author tied everything together and the way he visual described the "night mare passage".this book made kept me wanting to read more and more to see what happens next.i liked the way the author ended the book because it you could really get a good visual of what was going on.i would recommend this book to anyone.
