FIVE of FIVE stars

JEEEZUS.

Now I don’t know if I want to sleep with the light on or if I want to close all the curtains and turn lights off, stat. I read this through in a day, and am probably one of the few who knew nothing about the book at all before going in to it. At this point it’s likely one of the scariest things I’ve ever read (with the exception of sneak reading The Exorcist under the covers when I was 10). I can’t imagine any situation scarier than what happens in this book. Every horrific scene the characters had to get through just chilled me to the bone thinking how terrifying it would be.

That’s all I’m going to say. If you want to read an excellent horror book (that is quite low on the blood & guts scale), try your best to start this before you read what it’s about. It was an amazing experience for me. But even if you hear the plot, read it anyway. In my opinion, as a tough-as-nails old lady who’s read a lot of scary books, this one was fantastic.

And like I said, now it’s bedtime. Do I leave the lights on, or shut up every window and turn lights OFF???
