I just finished listing to the audiobook of this book. I thought it was really well done! I love a book that can toy with you psychologically and make you question the characters and their motives. As is typical with me and horror books/movies, I love it up until the big "reveal." This would have been a five-star read for me if it weren't for the ending. I particularly enjoyed the main character's quippy humor. I do not typically enjoy books that are written in a format that is solely letters or blog posts, but aside from the quick introductions to each chapter, I quickly forgot that the author was writing a series of blog entries. At first I was surprised by how short it was, but by the end, I felt that the book wasn't negatively impacted by its brevity. I'd definitely pick up more works by Jasper DeWitt.
