The mind works in mysterious ways in more than one...............Especially, with a broken psyche....
So, I read it. And while I "get it" (I'm pretty sure I get it) I admit to confuzzlement about the ending. No, not the obvious part of the ending; that was clear enough. But the twist? Other readers must have a different definition of what a "twist" ending is than I do.
I found Schriver's style a combination of decent in getting the story across, and clumsy at the same time. The story itself...I don't have a problem with the main character's childhood (it happens) but the treatment of it just felt trivialized to me. It was all too much "In Your Face" and stereotyped even as Schiver shifted between past and present.
While I think it's a good effort, I can't really give it more than three stars.
I loved that it wasn't so clear cut and obvious what was going on or where the story was going, it made me feel like I was experiencing it the way I would if I was in the main characters situation. The confusion, the fear and panic, where am I? what can I hear? how did I get here? just to name a few, these are all things I'm sure we would all have going through our minds if this were reality.
This is one of those stories once read you'll probably find each reader will have a different opinion of how it ended, it's creepy, twisted and very atmospheric and it's very cleverly left open to the readers own interpretation and imagination to put the pieces together in a way that can totally creep you out.
There's a saying amongst writers that goes, "show don't tell". While I think there are times when telling is better, Schiver seems to be of the mind that readers should just sort it all out for themselves, relieving the writer from actually telling the story - but isn't that what we're supposed to be doing?
This could probably be a great story if it were more clearly written. Also, it felt rushed. Maybe making it twice as long and really fleshing it out would have helped rather than rushing it along as if the writer can't wait for it to be over.
Richard plunges you headlong into the action, allowing you to pop back to the surface and splash around a little as he fills you in on the circumstances of her childhood. The final horror comes crashing down on you in a torrent and definitely leaves you gasping for more. This is the hallmark of a good horror story. It leaves you saying "Did I really just read that?"
This story contains taboo subject matter, so be forewarned. Richard has handled this subject tastefully in my opinion, and set out to write a creepy little story intended to entertain and frighten the reader, nothing more and nothing less.
In my book, he did just that.
During her captivity, she is knocked out, her memories of her painful past play out. Things no child should go through, she did and had to keep a secret. During one of her father's usual visits, he tells her to keep it a secret and gives her a clown that she names Bobo.
What happens from then on out will send chills up your spine and the ending will leave you wanting to know what happens next! This will have you on the edge of your seat, you will anger and sadness and then smile because of Bobo! I highly recommend this to any who love horror!
