This one sure took it's time. It started out interesting, I liked Waters' style of writing, she sort of paints with words and her prosa is in a way really traditional and really really accomplished.

Somewhere after the incidents with Roderick and the dog, the plot started to drag when it should've gathered more pace. The last 200 pages or so were really just nerve-racking because they were so depressing. There were no release of any kind. But I guess that was the point.

None of the characters felt close or even relatable. I'm giving the book 3 stars because of the beautiful writing and some of the really spooky parts.
