What to say about this book?
But to sum it up IT'S...
Yes, this story is DARK, DISTURBING, CREEPY AND BRILLIANT! An emotion MINDF*CK!I loved the whole vibe of the book...the atmosphere of the novel is haunting...it sucks you in and while the intensity increases, you can't just stop reading it! It's definitely a turn pager.
It actually reminded me a lot of Gothic novels, that feel to it, the mystery, the danger and how the heroine keeps get caught in that web.
And the stalker? Phantom of the Opera came to my mind ;)
Besides the story, I got to say that I fall in love with the writing! It's soooooo GOOD! It's poetic, it's intense, it's disturbing (yep, I'm talking about the journal)and it's terrific.I caught myself fascinated by Gavin like a moth to a flame. I think we want to believe in the whole tortured soul that can be saved...
Now I can't wait to read Horrorscape!!
And of course read all of Nenia's books!!
