I had high hopes for this book. It started off okay...strong...but then it just died. The main character was annoying. I kept thinking through the entire book, how sophomoric he was. This got very good reviews from other authors, and editors and the like, about how 'imaginative' and 'scary' it was. Please. Not scary, and really not all that imaginative to be honest. I could put that aside if every other sentence wasn't about how the main character wanted to get laid. (no joke). I read it, I finished it, I wouldn't recommend it unless you get it from the library. Even then, I think you would be better off with another horror writer. All in all...not the best book I have read this yea.
