's review

it was ok

The adult world viewed through the eyes of a child can occasionally make for interesting literature. It can equally be a means of getting away with some pretty infantile writing in a book that is ostensibly for grownups. For all the inflated reviews, I’m Not Scared is more an example of the latter. Perhaps something was lost in translation. Not awful by any means, but I suspect I would have enjoyed more if I were fourteen and temporarily estranged from my Stephen King and James Herbert collection.
