I came across this book whilst browsing for a 'different' read, and that is precisely what I got. After reading a few pages, my reaction was that the plot was a little far fetched, but I kept reading and was just utterly hooked. This book is a horror, a crime novel, a supernatural novella and a story about the frailty of human life. The character Harry is a complex, often pitiful character and I alternated between wanting to shout at him for being so weak, wanting to hug him and make him feel better, and being utterly horrified by him. This story is a book that will stay with me for a long time, and even after the last chapter I was still flummoxed as to the outcome. Did he, didn't he? Did they? Did they not?
The last chapter is an eerie sucker punch of an ending, and I cannot wait to read Knowles's other works.
One work of caution, some scenes are hard to read due to the material, but the content is necessary and well written. This is a book which I cannot find fault with.
The author is not a well man and campaigns to raise money and awareness for fellow sufferers. Next time I put my children to bed, and bemoan my huge uni and writing workload, I shall think of this book and the author and stop moaning.
