Diane S ☔'s review
Jul 17, 2016
This is one of the strangest and creepiest books I have read in years. Starts out very strong, but flags somewhat in the middle. The author rewrote the book, changing the location to a place in the United States, really wish he would have left the Dutch setting alone. Not sure why it was necessary to do this since it was translated anyway. Unlikable characters, a little touch of Lord of the flies, and maybe The Lottery as well. The witch is not the only evil to be found in this town, nor the scariest once you get down to it. Also the author is obsessed with boobs, not sure why that had to be and I skipped much of these pages as well as the pages of graphic violence to people and animals. Just not my cup of tea. So three stars for the creep factor but despite the fact that it scared the bejessus out of me, can't say I really enjoyed it.
