really liked it
bookshelves: horror, mysterysuspense, fiction
Read in January, 2007

It gets 4 stars for creepiness and originality. Parts were a bit long-winded and unnecessary (and almost detracted from the creepiness), but other than that, a good read.

Elizabeth what do you think so far? Isn't it creepy?

Courtney It is super creepy - I'm almost done. My main complaint is the uber-verbosity of sections detailing the thoughts of some of the characters (like Baldini, for example). I thought they detracted from the story's effect and were unnecessary.
