Melanie | 1656 comments Picked up my copy yesterday but I'll have to finish my other reads first.


Nicole | 5 comments I’ve been eyeballing this one for a little bit now. I’ve seen it recommended a few times in a FB horror book group I’m apart of. I just picked up my copy of it today, I’m pretty excited to start reading it Monday 😁


aPriL does feral sometimes  (cheshirescratch) Starts off slow, but soon I was feeling little prickles up my spine....

I have not gotten to the ending, I'm a little under halfway (read up through chapter eight, I think). The spookiest thing that's happened so far is (view spoiler)

Dana Fontaine (danaschipporeit) | 322 comments I was so excited to read this book and I was into it until about 75% in. The ending was crazy though!! I felt like I was being gaslighted.


Gina *A Bookwyrm in Belgium* (nyogtha) | 64 comments I didn't enjoy this one as much as I had hoped to.


message 22: by Kari (new) - rated it 1 star

Kari | 70 comments I'm not all the way through it yet, but tentatively agree, Gina. There's nothing bad about it, but nothing particularly stands out either. The translation also seems a little awkward to me at times? Like I'm very aware of it, which pulls me out of the story somewhat.

Chandler | 161 comments I'm about two thirds of the way through. I'm enjoying it so far. It's not bone-chilling but creepy at times.

Jason | 435 comments Just finished the 1st chapter can't say I am feeling it


Chandler | 161 comments Just finished it. It was interesting enough. (view spoiler)


message 27: by Jason (new) - rated it 1 star

Jason | 435 comments Just got past chapter 2, still not feeling it. In fact I'm a little bored....

Chandler wrote: "Just finished it. It was interesting enough. [spoilers removed]"

I agree....(view spoiler)


Nicole | 5 comments I’m still reading it. I’m a few chapters in and there are times that this grabs me and there are times that the dialogue just throws me. It feels forced or like a bad movie when I’m reading it at times.
I hope I start getting creeped soon. It sounds like it’s going to start getting creepy soon, if everyone in the book could just stop talking though that’d be fantastic 😅

LOL!!!


message 32: by Kari (new) - rated it 1 star

Kari | 70 comments Just finished. The dialogue is very cringe, and I can’t tell if it’s translation issues or just the writing? But I hated the end.


aPriL does feral sometimes  (cheshirescratch) I think it's the translation.


message 34: by Jason (new) - rated it 1 star

Jason | 435 comments Page 60, and I have ditched this book can not carry on this book has become a chore, to be blunt it is boring.

well, after seeing all of your comments, i'm not going to bother with this one.

I know tosh, I got it from the library so I think I'll give it a go, maybe a few chapters but throw in the towel if it gets too tedious.

How's your sister doing, Latasha?

Latasha (latasha513) | 11042 comments Mod
She’s back home and doing a lot better. Ty so much for asking.


message 40: by Melanie (new) - added it

Melanie | 1656 comments Nup. Chucking in the towel at 49.5 pages, tried to make it to 50 but just couldn't quite get there. I think there is some stuff lost in translation, like when the husband says something politely to his own brother, and I'm sure it's culturally appropriate, but more than that, there's a lot of telling rather than showing. This really irks me in books. Maybe I'm getting cranky in my old age, or maybe I've actually just been spoilt with some really exception show-don't-tell authors (I'm looking at you Laird Barron, Adam Nevill, Brian Hodge, CassandraKhaw.......). I'm gonna go hunt me down some dreadfully unsettling lovecraftian creep-fest if anyone's interested. :)

Sorry Melanie!


Gina *A Bookwyrm in Belgium* (nyogtha) | 64 comments I'm relieved to hear that I wasn't the only one to struggle with this novel. it did have some creepy moments but I didn't feel it built on them enough. I also agree with the rest of you that commented on the translation, it certainly felt like a factor. The book wasn't dreadful but I agree with Melanie, I think I have been spoiled but the quality horror available.

Montzalee Wittmann (montziew) | 57 comments I can't get this from the library and it's too expensive for my blood!
Maybe catch the next book! 😀

Most libraries here still are not even doing curbside pickups.


aPriL does feral sometimes  (cheshirescratch) Unless the bookclub chooses a book which our libraries have as an ebook, I can't get the book. Our libraries have been closed for almost three months now. Even the dropoff chutes are locked. I have five books I can't return!

I don't even know if ours DOES the eBooks (we have a population of more cows than humans here...)

That's like mine but it is hooked to a larger one. That's where I check. 😁

I hope they are not charging you!


aPriL does feral sometimes  (cheshirescratch) I hope not!

: D

Actually, the last time I checked online, someone, probably a librarian, moved the due date to May 31. I think I should check again! Thanks for reminding me!
