This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Fans of Steven King might enjoy this
What could Keith Lee Morris have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
This really could have been edited down. It seemed to go on and on and on. It almost feels like the characters themselves that the author got pulled into the circular story and couldn't get out of it. The book had the feel of the movie 1408 but less interesting. Lots and lots of self reflection to the point of boredom. I was really hoping this would get scary but it never did. I do think the author is talented but this effort left me disappointed.
What about Peter Berkrot’s performance did you like?
Without Peter's performance, I don't think I could have gotten through this. Great with giving characters their own voice. Well done.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I wanted to love this book and it started well but too quickly got into endless pages of self reflection. I was hoping this would be in the vein of the Shining but it never got there.

I bought this one on sale, having no idea what it was about. I'm not a literary fiction person but this has enough Twilight Zone flavor to keep me interested in the lit fic "dysfunctional family confronts its issues" thing, which I usually find too navel gazing and tedious to handle for a whole book. There's some really enjoyable imagery folded into the creepy happenings, too. Good stuff, makes me want to explore the genre more.
