Don’t bother – This book one long incredibly lame cringe-fest.
I could say somthing about how absolutely loosely the author use the term ‘insane’, and I could say something about how offensive that actually comes off. I won’t – I will however say that the first story is semi decent, and when reading that you could be tricked into thinking there might be a theme… IT’S A TRAP!
I see most people give this more stars than me, and it might have been one of the reasons why I bought it – I mean the bunch of 4 star reveiws, but I was bored to TEARS. I had to give up halfway, and never got around to finish it, and I guess it’s a personal preference thing, it is not the quality.
My first initial thought was ‘%&!# that was lame’ – But I realise that it’s hardly a review. So a more adult version is; First part of the book is stupid slow, lots of getting to know the characters, and getting introduced to situations and characters that serves no, NO – purpose at all. I realize the author must have thought that a deep character makes us care, but it just falls flat because it is pointless and boring. The middle of the book is actually really decent, hence the 1 star – it efficiently was creepy, and kept you guessing why people were dying, was it a supernatural curse, or was it a ‘who done it’ situation. The last part of the book, the conclusion was so lame that it made me laugh- and just when I thought I had reached the peak of stupid, it just got worse from there. I do not under any circumstances recommend this book, I would rather sort socks or stare at paint drying. And I wonder what went wrong, the author has this fantastic scene with a long and deep history, and he manages to make it into a uwe boll movie.
