A bit monotonous and so could have used some editing, but an interesting and entertaining read.

I went into this book hoping to get some questions from the movie answered. Well it did but it then brought up more questions.

I am changing reading tracks and returning this to the library. I might come back to this later. Gifted writer but this is some weird-a$$ stuff for sure. Not exactly scary, more like old-school horror.
