DNF I did not finish this book because it was so predictable. I felt I saw everything that happened coming so I checked with some spoilers and I was right there was no point in finishing the book when I already knew what was going to happen just by guessing. I hate books that I can guess the endings in the first couple chapters of the book. it was a fantastic idea though just very poorly executed ( )

Can't quite decide how to rate this one (star ratings are so hard!). This novel is strange and thought-provoking and fascinating. A worthwhile read. ( )

It's a good thing I didn't have much planned for today, because once I started this book I had to keep going to the end. It is not structured like a traditional novel, but reads like a series of ghost stories, linked together by three recurring characters. Really an excellent read, but I don't understand why it is cataloged as young adult. Maybe because Sedwick's other books are? ( )

Chilling, haunting, and beautiful.

Do NOT listen to people, don't read the flyleaf, step into this tale utterly unschooled and open-minded.

You will not be able to put it down.

Thank you, BR, for the referral! ( )
