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