House of Small Shadows, 20 Nov. 2013
This novel is full of good ideas and some excellent scary scenes - but not all the ideas are followed through and while attempting to create fear through vagueness and uncertainty, the author fails to grip. Certainly towards the end, he lost this reader's interest. The last section of the book is drawn out and repetitive and I'm not sure it makes complete sense. Of course this could be the author's intention - but it left me dissatisfied. A little point, neither author nor his editor was aware that he should have used standing and sitting instead of stood and sat throughout the book.
