Brian Sammons This is horror for adults. It's meant to be disturbing and there are many themes that are probably not for younger readers. That said, it really depends on the reader. I started reading Stephen King, Robert Bloch, Clive Barker, Richard Matheson and others when I was about 13, and look at how I turned out. ;) So if you are used to adult themes and adult books, you might enjoy it. Just be sure to ask your parents first if you are under age.
