Phew. If you want a book that is going to make you incredibly uncomfortable and nervous, I highly recommend this one! This book is absolutely frightening. I couldn't stop reading it, but I found it to be very disturbing, and I don't think I can recommend it to students because the violence was a bit excessive to me. I limit authors to one animal killing per book (not three). There were murders of innocent people, throat slashings, etc. I was shocked when I made the connection that this is the same author as GHOST MEDICINE. This book is very different! There are some great lessons of brotherhood in this book, but I was just too stressed on this bumpy ride. A very dark book--in a nutshell, if you liked PET SEMATARY, check it out.
