For some reason this book left me cold – cold in a, really, type of a way. I didn’t find it as good as Handling the Undead or Let Me In.
While the book starts off very well, it seems to descend into a maelstrom of violence intended to shock. Maybe it’s because I live in America where there is too much violence among children that this book feels so facile in it’s look and development of a duo that take up violence. Maybe it’s because to me, violence doesn't necessary equal fear when reading.
The characterization is good overall, but I wanted more, something deeper perhaps.
