"Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home."

Reading progress update: I've read 90 out of 512 pages.

The Little Stranger - Sarah Waters

Oh, this is wonderful so far.  I requested it from PaperBackSwap thinking it was going to be light, pulpy horror, so I was surprised to see the "Man Booker Prize Finalist" seal on the cover.  Turns out, it's literary, fascinating, and beautifully written.


I love that the back cover has almost no information on the content of the story.  I have no idea what's in store, but the slowly-building Gothic atmosphere has me preparing to be scared shitless.


I can't wait.
