Kenneth McKinley | 1529 comments Mod
I've yet to read anything that wasn't excellent from Malfi. I'll be jumping into it tonight.


Latasha (latasha513) | 11050 comments Mod
I didn't get to read much, got to chapter 3 I think. Talking about when the boys were born.


Terry | 4931 comments I've read up to ch5. I did like that first chapter (view spoiler)

I agree.

Mallory is so scary. I don't have a twin but I do have a sister and we are close. We talk (text) everyday. If she went missing, I'd completely lose it. :(

Very cool. (view spoiler)

Me too Terry. The tales of dread's hand is interesting. What is up with this place?!

I know! What a great name though.


Latasha (latasha513) | 11050 comments Mod
Yeah!


Kenneth McKinley | 1529 comments Mod
So, I'm starting to read this (yes, I'm behind) and the first thing that hits me is how good Malfi is at telling a tale. The word "professional" first comes to mind. He has such a vast vocabulary, but he uses it with such an easy delivery that it doesn't feel like he's trying. Some authors feel like they flex their vocabular muscle simply because they can, not because they should.

I agree, too, Ken. Smooth is the word I'd use for the writing style as I've experienced it so far.

Rachel Bea (gekrepten) | 1760 comments I'm late, but I will be starting tomorrow :)

Right?! That is the point I stopped. What did he mean!!

I'm done. I really liked this story and never saw that last half of the book coming. and it broke my heart.

Rachel Bea (gekrepten) | 1760 comments I'm only on page 47 (13%). Ended up having a busy weekend with family coming in.

But it's so good! Really creepy in my opinion. Scared to find out what happened to Danny.

Glad you started, Rachel. It really does feel creepy. I'm right at the midpoint, and its still good!

It's funny you mention 30 Days of Night. I've kind of had that movie in the back of my head while reading this. Obviously, it's the remote northern Alaska small town as the location, but the picture is there, nevertheless.

I got up to page 162 on the train. I want to keep reading! When my train emerged from the tunnel and started going over the bridge, I looked out the window and expected to see snow lol. I was THAT lost in the story :D (And it didn't help that the train car was air conditioned to freezing temps)

Its the same ominous, cold kinda feeling. The cold adds to the darkness and the sense that you're not supposed to be there.
