3.5 stars.

Creepy. Creepy. Creepy. Creepy.

There may exist thousands of books featuring creepy, Machiavellian talking dolls, but they’re a classic that will forever invade horror stories.

To my surprise, I wasn’t scared by this book. Maybe you’ve noticed, it’s shelved under the ‘‘horror’’ genre, which is a genre that I absolutely do not read. Ever. Even if you beg me to.

But this didn’t scare me in the teensiest bit. I was, however, captivated by the story and, of course, creeped out by the dead dolls.

The story is well-told. Alex Bell keeps things interesting by adding constant action and twists at unexpected places. Plus I can’t complain about the writing.

There really was no need for an unrequited love tragedy, however. Bleh. The story would also have worked even without the imminent romance. It’s really not a main focus, so there’s that, but it could certainly have staid completely dead, too. Pun oh so intended.

A bit clichéd, as we’ve all probably seen dozens of movies with cruel dolls or read books about them, so there isn’t a great amount of originality from the author’s part, but I can assure you that it’s very much readable.

So much that I’m disappointed this won’t be released for Halloween. What were they thinking releasing this a month from Christmas? Ah, Publishing, a mysterious creature.

Lily H. I agree I too think some things could be done to make it better. Alex Bell made a mistake that I immediately noticed instead of me she wrote my in the sentence that was Sophie's line, The name came out with MY not really meaning to.
