it was ok
bookshelves: horror

Hmm. Thought this book was okay. the problem with doing supernatural thrillers that involve some element of the macbre is that readers these days (myself included) want to see the goods soon and often. It's one thing if you can really build up the atmosphere, but this book was too slow for far too long and when it finally got around to its big reveal I was like "so what?". Straub's writing is fine and the only other thing I read of his is the book he partnered with Stephen King, Black House. But Straub seems to want to be more literary as compared to King's popcorn appeal. I appreciate the latter more.
