really liked it
bookshelves: first-reads, paperback, horror, reviewed, wordpress-reviewed, fiction, 2012

Rating: 3.5 stars...although I don't think "like" is quite the right word. The book is very well written and packs a massive punch in just 30 pages. In that short space, I felt I got to know - and like - Eddie. From the blurb, I thought I would enjoy this book. The ending, for me, came out of nowhere...and wasn't what I was expecting at all. It was very cleverly, eloquently and vividly written...and left me feeling most uncomfortable and with questions about what happens next to Joy.

Trying to write my thoughts on this book without giving away the plot is difficult!

In summary: excellent, accomplished wordsmithing, but a disturbing story. If you like dark, you'll like this story.

Thank you to Travis for choosing me as a winner in the First Reads Giveaway.
