Did I miss something?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What They Do In The Dark (Paperback)I bought this book after seeing it reviewed in a couple of women's magazines - it's this month's Marie Claire recommended read. I couldn't get to grips with the segments which involved the film being made and found those characters very thinly drawn - even now, a week after I finished it, can't really figure out why they were actually there other than to bring the story together at the end. The accounts of the girls growing up are really well-written and evocative, and while the ending is certainly shocking, I'd kind of guessed its nature from the reviews I'd read previously and comparisons with Lord of the Flies.

I got frustrated in the end trying to work out the relevance of some parts of this novel. I hated it in the end!
