really liked it
Read from May 20 to 21, 2012

My favorite part of this book might have been the first chapter, which is kind of a Lovecraft-noir version of the Rumpelstiltskin legend. However, plenty of interesting things happen later -- Barron's cosmic horror is ickily and queasily personal -- and I won't complain. Also, endings to this kind of story are notoriously tricky, and I think Barron comes pretty close to right on.
