's review

it was ok


I was so badly wanting to LOVE this one. It was highly anticipated and, like many other people it seems, it just fell flat for me.

This book is very Stephen King - small town, group of boys, sinister atmosphere. Yet, I just feel like if you're going to write a novel to rival King's then it has to be better than this. There was one twist in here which surprised me and I hadn't guessed beforehand. But even with that, it wasn't very surprising and just felt very simple and overdone.

Overall, this book could have been A LOT shorter and I think if it had been cut right down, and the pace, therefore, sped up - it could have been a really creepy read. But for me, it just didn't work and I was bored for most of the midsection. I really hope other people love this one, and I am the unpopular opinion but it just wasn't for me.
