Graphics were tremendous, it would be great to see these in a larger format.
I was a little confused with the storyline, I was never sure where it was going or what was happening half the time. It did come off as very creepy and sinister, which is what it was supposed to be, so it gets points for that. However, the storyline overall seemed to lack something. I didn't feel satisfied with the ending, because I wasn't sure what happened or how it got there. I expected more. More creepiness, more violence, and perhaps more closure at the end.
It all seemed like a hazy dream/nightmare that you wake up from halfway through, not knowing what happened or why it happened, and when you try to go back to sleep to finish it off, it eludes you until it is completely gone and you're just left with the remnants of that vague dream you awoke from.
That's basically how I felt about this book. Might get around to reading it again sometime in the future, and maybe then I'll pick up on things I missed out on this time around.
