This book was a nice surprise for me. I had never read anything by Andrew Neiderman before, so I didn't know what to expect.

I enjoyed reading this book but the ending was quite stupid and obvious.

I read this a long time ago so I don't remember a ton about it- should probably read it again.

It was actually the book by Marcus Sakey but not in good reads.
Not a great book - too surreal to believe.
