Here’s the book that has been ruining all my writing progress. It’s the kind of story that forces you to slow down and savor every word of the enviable prose. And then when you’ve finished, you’ll have to start over at page one just so you can read it again with the knowledge you have gained at the end.
Quietly twisted, to horrifying, to bitterly sad, with the most fitting ending I never expected. What a perfect horror story. It left me perfectly unsettled just as it should have. Exceptional on every level. My favorite read of the year.
(For those of you who are sensitive to animal cruelty, skip a few pages when rabbits are mentioned. It’s not graphic, but the details are haunting enough for me to wish I could unread.)
