My first time reading anything written by John Langan and I am so happy I picked this one! It took me awhile because this is a story, within a story, within a story and it draws you in and won’t let you go. It is one that you savor and enjoy!
The base of this story is grief, loss and the horrifying choice you have to make if given the opportunity to spend more time with a dead loved one! The horror kind of creeps up on you as you get further into the story. The images that are conjured up by his storytelling are so vivid. And it’s been awhile that a book has affected me like this one did! I finished it one morning before work, thought about it all day while at work and didn’t want to start another book till I got this one out of my system! This is a good one!
Received a BS degree in Marketing from Indiana University 1982. Have worked in the retail business for the last 19yrs. Raised 4 children, 3 have graduated college. I love animals and reading. Reading has become as much a part of my life as eating! If it’s not done a couple times a day, I feel starved!
