I can't believe it. I'm near the end, within 40 pages of some sort of conclusion. And I just don't care enough about the story to finish. That could be because what story there was faded some many pages ago, giving way to Straub's efforts to just pile more and more nasty on top of nasty. I suppose it's horror, in the sense of being too gross to read. But in the sense of being scary or suspenseful? Nope. Just gross. So I quit, within sight of the finish line. Bummer. Two stars because it was good for most of the book, but then it just fell apart. Why read with no story?
