bookshelves: horror, mystery-thriller, brit-lit

Wow. What a fascinating read - and definitely quite different from what I expected. After enjoying Hayder’s Jack Caffery series, I thought her standalone novels would be in the same sort of vein. This one definitely falls under more of the horror genre than the mystery/thriller genre. It was definitely an entertaining read, but was surprisingly dark. Hayder is certainly a talented writer, and her story ideas are certainly original, but this one was definitely stranger than most. I did enjoy reading this, but part of the mystery was given away by reading the acknowledgments (so beware of that! These acknowledgments are placed at the end for a reason - and you will spoil part of the story if you skip to them!). And there were definite hints to the ending twist... it does seem to beg for a sequel, as there were a few loose ends but, all in all, I really enjoyed reading this, and I do hope that a sequel will be written some day. I will definitely keep an eye for more of this talented author’s work.
