This was rather silly, but still an entertaining novel. There wasn't too much to the plot (and not nearly enough explanation), but there were several very strong characters and some genuinely funny quips back and forth between these rather-old-for-their-age twelve year olds. All in all, this was very reminiscent of Richard Laymon's work (albeit a lot more toned down!). I was on the edge of my seat towards the end, though it was a bit slow to start. The setting added a lot to the book as a whole, giving it a very real, and eerie sense of atmosphere.
