I really enjoyed these -- very deliciously creepy, and they sit with you for a while. She has great pacing and a very good sense of place. I'm not sure I would reread these; they're a little too disturbing for me. But I am glad I did pick this up.

This was a quick read. Some stories were interesting, some were not. ( )

this was great.
i probably won't read it again due to the violence and gore,
but it was very well-done.
an eerie and haunting merging of supernatural horror, governmental terror, and growing up as a woman in south america. ( )

This book took me by surprise with the quiet way the stories crept under my skin. Each story was eerie and disturbing in its own way, and yet the collection fit together very well. Several have stuck with me since I put the book down, and I will definitely seek out more by Enriquez. ( )

This collection was very eery and disturbing like others have said before me. I really enjoyed it as a collection the first time around and have thought of it many times since. Mariana Enriquez has piqued my curiosity and I want to read more from her! ( )
