My thoughts: This book was very, very creepy. The atmosphere, the small details all building on one another, all these elements made the whole thing completely horrifying (as it was supposed to). I also really liked the teenage-ness of the characters, especially, the slow building picture of what Leena really is like, what she does. She isn't even sure who she is herself. There is also a Gothic undertone to the whole story that made it even more spooky and thrilling. I was sufficiently terrified into avoiding my closet for a time. And I have to admit, it is definitely not my kind of book. I don't like being freaked out, and I don't like disturbing stories. It was just not the kind of book I usually enjoy and not one I recommend, unless this is your kind of story. But, it's a great psychological thriller for those aching to be terrorized by the mind.
