The ending was very good and neatly tied everything up together and there is no getting away from the fact that there were some really shocking and gruesome moments in the book that made my cringe but for me there was just something missing,
Natalie clearly has issues as does every character in the book. Her mother's death had obviously taken it's toll and clearly it has been something that she has never gotten over. The village of Little Downey is a sinister place and one that I hope I never have the pleasure of visiting and it's really made me wonder about what really goes on in butchers shops.
I would put this in the horror category as there is plenty of blood and lots of gory scenes. The reference to the red silk dress of her mothers is something that I could definitely see in a movie and would make a scary, hide behind the cushion moment.
There were a lot of moments in the book that I really did enjoy reading, the complex relationship with Daniel, Natalie's father's employee and Natalie's one time best friend and moving on from there her new found friendship with the Irish gypsy Jed and his slightly wild sister Merry. Despite me not loving the book, I certainly didn't hate it and I do think that elements of the book will stay with me for some weeks to come.
That said, this is a great story. I loved the premise and the setting. We are in Natalie's shoes as she struggles to emerge from the fog of psychiatric trauma and make sense of the raw and unnerving world in which she lives. It's atmospheric and menacing, sometimes scary, and there are questions we really do want to get to the bottom of.
Finally, like some of the other reviewers I absolutely hated the animal cruelty and would prefer not to have to read that when I want escapism and a good book, and I did have to totally skip those chapters. But I do recommend this book as a whole. Had it been edited better and thus been a smoother read, I'd recommend it even more highly. It's a very good story with plenty of twists and excellent characters, and it will keep you guessing to the end.
When she returns to her father's house in a remote coastal village, the residents are more than a little strange. As the story develops, the reader is left wondering how much is real and how much is taking place in Natalie's head.
The author builds the tension with several skilfully written twists and turns.
A dark but enjoyable read.
Full of twists, turns, revelations, and unexpected moments.
Prepare to have a robust stomach for the butchery element!
