it was ok
bookshelves: mystery-thriller-suspense, group-reads

This is my Book Of the Month- August2016, with GR group- Horror Aficionados

I am not even going to classify this as horror because it is more of a psychological thriller with small elements of paranormal added in it.

This is an OK read and I felt myself dragging through it. Something interesting happened and then it went into the same slow paced routine......

The thing is all that happens till 50% of the story is already in the blurb. The story-line does not diversify much and nothing much happens apart from what is written in the blurb of the book.

After that it does pick up a bit of pace and then dwindles away. The last few chapters are a page turner but the reveal is just ok- (view spoiler)

I know there are folks who really enjoyed this one but it was not for me as I was looking for more of a horror than thriller from this read.

They tried to add a bit of paranormal mystery there I felt. My guess is it was Tommy...

Paula Mcgrath The paranormal elements regarding doppelgangers had me for a bit, I was hoping that was where they were going with the ending, or maybe zombie Tommy would save real Tommy, but it was still an ok read I guess.
