2.0 out of 5 stars Slow Slow Slow, May 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror #1) (Kindle Edition)
I need to preface this review by stating that I did not finish the book. At about the 45% mark I had lost interest and decided to move on.

There is a certain expectation when you pick up a book which includes "Experiment in Terror" in the title. To the point that I quit reading, our main character had experienced a couple of really bad dreams and some sort of out of body experience. To make matters worse, I did not care for the main character. The author spent to much time explaining Perry's self-confidence issues. Perry is a 22 year old misfit that acts like she is still in 8th grade. The amount of time Perry spent on self-reflection (bordering on self-loathing) was enough to drive me to distraction.

Based on the other reviews, maybe I missed a gem in the latter part of the book. But I just couldn't see myself slogging through it.

You didn't miss anything. This was a young adult romance story disguised as a horror book.

You are missing a great series. Honestly the first was slow compared to the others. The chemistry and story surrounding Dex and Perry is a wild ride. I read a lot of horror and Karina had me feeling extremely uncomfortable most of the time. Do yourself a favor and give it another chance.
