it was ok

I am a bit mystified by the critical acclaim this book received. It's very compelling, albeit in a creepy, I-need-to-finish-this-so-I-don't-stay-awake-thinking-about-it kind of way, but both the voice of the narrator (he's 5, yet his syntax seemed more like that of a 3 year old) and the nature of the situation seemed a little sensationalistic (is that a word?). I don't recommend it. She's a talented writer, but this for me was just meh in the end.
