it was amazing

This is the most elegantly terrifying book I have ever read. A beautifully crafted story that brings myths and legends of life and death into a very real place, "Death Watch" is certain to keep you up at night because you can't put it down and you don't want to close your eyes.

If you feel that the book is slow, do NOT give up on it! In our world of insta-tweeter-twit news, we have fallen out of the habit of allowing a story to unfolds, page by page. There is a difference between eating and dining, and in the case of "Death Watch," Ari Berk lays a sumptuous table that is spectacular in its almost Victorian detail.

Berk's phenomenal skill as a master storyteller shines through on every page and his words evoke the sense of other-worldliness that literally haunts New England. This book will leave you feeling deliciously uncomfortable, especially as winter approaches and the raw tree branches tap against your window while the dank mist gathers at the window sill. . .
