liked it

type of book: horror

I received this book from/at: Brandy Bee at Gadsden Regional where I took her for an epidural for her bad back

ideas expressed/message/plot: A young, autistic boy, Seth, becomes the vessel of an old evil (spirit? demon?) known as Tak, who has an odd fascination with Westerns (esp. The Regulators) & a cartoon called MotoKops. Tak thrives by talking lives & is able to make manifest his favorite TV characters & terrorize the 'burbs where Seth lives.

favorite characters: Cynthia (because she was surprisingly strong), Johnny (because he got silly when he got nervous)--there's so many characters in this book that you connect with but not deeply which is a good thing since so many die.

when I finished this book I felt: violated
