I heard this marketed as magical realism, and thought the cover was pretty, so I wanted to give it a try. But this was NOT magical realism, in my opinion, was much closer to to fantasy/paranormal horror. I thought it was honestly quite scary and a LOT happened. I’m glad I read it during the day. I thought it dragged for a bit too long, and in the end I’m not entirely sure what happened. Overall, it was fine. Just not really my kind of book.

Patty (IheartYA) I agreed. It was too long. I'm still confused. Lol

message 2: by Sam (new) - rated it 3 stars

Sam Duffy Too many gates and too much back and forth between the interviews and the written testimony, I think! Made it hard to keep up with what was real.

Patty (IheartYA) Yes! I'm glad I'm not alone!

Angela I got it all figured out except the stuff with Kyle. Like, what? What was he doing? That's the only part I'm still frustrated about.
