Very good, but the end was a bit much!

Creepy and weird. I liked it! Fast read despite being over 500 pages.

I could not put this book down. Yes, it is dark and disturbing. It is also fascinating and had a lot of topics for discussion. Not for the faint of heart.

I was on board for the first half and then got a bit bored for the other half. Gruesome and interesting, and I really like that we never find out what exactly Theres is but it just didn't engage me. Also am not quite sure how much I buy Teresa's transformation.

Ick. I did find it interesting, though, how Omaha native Conor Oberst and his album "Bright Eyes" is mentioned more than once in this book.

As always, JAL writes beautifully, and is completely original. His imagination is amazing, and he is a craftsman of the highest order. Do not start this book unless you have time to finish it. Incredible.

The reviews liken the author to Stephen King. Don't enjoy him either. Not rating it as didn't finish it, which doesn't happen often. For horror fans only.

Started off intriguing and ended up being more disturbing, pointless and disgusting.
