There are several different characters within the book, and each chapter is told from a single character’s point of view. It becomes very interesting how the characters are woven together and what becomes of them in the final scene. I do enjoy books with the various chapters told by a single character. However, I will say that my biggest complaint with the book is that with some of the characters, the chapter formatting was different with some characters than from the others. For example, even though all the chapters were told from 3rd person point-of-view, sometimes the words of the narrative took on the character’s spoken voice. Which I think is a creative way to do that since I don’t see that often. But when stories are told in 3rd person POV, I like for the narrative text to be consistent throughout the book. Or it could be that most of the character’s chapters had very similar styles, but two of them (Percy and Henry) were just so different from the others, it’s odd that two stuck out to me, and the rest did not. Despite this, I was still able to stay immersed in the story.
Another thing that I loved about the book is that I was constantly guessing until the very end whether the children of this creepy garden were real creatures or if they were just very vivid delusions created by one of the characters. Either way, whether real or creations of the mind, the children were excellently creepy. And the house itself, too, was full of horrors that were creepy and cringeworthy.
All of the characters were very real to me, which made it easy for me to find the people I wanted to feel sorry for, and the ones I wanted to hate. And I don’t want to give too much away about the plot, but the relationships between some the characters’ back stories were surprising and made for great plot twists.
If you’re someone who likes to be challenged not to be creeped out or grossed out by what I would call “coarse” situations, then definately give this one a read.
