Read in September, 2009

Just could not get into this one. The curse was too vague to make any sense, and the woman and cat weren't particularly scary. Too many endings, too many reused paths, not enough colour or flavour.

Packard's prose was fine for the most part, and I'm still a fan of his; but I believe he does better when there are fewer endings and he has time to develop a real story.

Montgomery's style, on the other hand, strikes me as better suited to many endings. His zaniness and unpredictability translates well to that format.
