Creepy but not my type of story...
on May 12, 2015
Creepy is the first word that comes to mind for me when I think of this book. If you are into books containing the supernatural, then this book may be for you. I don't typically care for these types of books, so my opinion may vary from most of the others posted here. I decided to read it because I figured it would be more twisted in a human way. Sadly, it wasn't. Ghost stories aren't for me. The lack of ending, which I was expecting because I knew going in it was a series, made me purchase the second installment to find out what was going to happen next. So I guess the author did what she set out to do, and that is to get me to buy another one of her books.
The story does drag at times, but I suspect it was intended to be that way. If the story flew threw the events at a faster pace then the reader wouldn't have an opportunity to really feel the devastation of being held captive. The slow going made me very aware of how interminable their captivity felt to them. I may be wrong, but I didn't see it as a negative aspect the way other reviewers did.
I don't regret my purchase, but I doubt I will buy anything else from this author. Dollhouse and Paper Dolls have given me my fill of ghosts...time to return to my serial killers, human traffickers, and cheaters.
