Yes I fell for the initiation gag too,thankyou MR Bridgeman for duping me neatly at the start oh and also informing me where the inspiration for "Swallows and Amazons" came from..loved that!..The author clearly has good knowledge of the area and the country police force(think he/she also watched and enjoyed "Hot Fuzz"),nice descriptions of the police station and Coniston appear as though the author is familiar with the area and enabled me the reader to have a lovely clear picture of the scene ready to fill it with monster mayhem!!! Thoroughly enjoyed!!
As the story progresses Bridgeman shows his other great talent: that of twisting a well-known genre so that there are still plenty of surprises. There are some great scenes between the various policemen and the scene on the lake with the drifting yacht is inspired.
The passages dealing with encounters with the "thing" are riveting and horrific (I couldn't get to sleep after reading it!) but throughout the book Bridgeman weaves in a fabulous sense of comedy which works really well with the gory scenes. And the last line of the entire book is one of the most scarily hilarious things I have ever read!
