This was a really nice horror novel. Albeit quite strange but I like strange :) The story felt very “Lovecraftian”. H.P. Lovecraft and also a bit Clive Barker too. When reading about how the monsters look like, it felt like Clive Barker monsters. Sadly though, It was a bit too much about her dog Bongo. I can’t understand how some people (dog owners) can prioritize a dog over a human being? But that is just my own personal opinion though. I don’t like dogs, or actually more precise, I don’t like some dog owners and how they sometimes behave. It usually isn’t the dog’s fault.

Because of too much about the dog (and dog owning), I gave this book 4/5 in score. Otherwise it would have been a 5/5.

I have decided that I will read books that I like and not books that I try to like. I like Thrillers, Horror, Action and Adventure books. I have tried to read Fantasy and Science Fiction, but I have a hard time finding books in those categories that I like. I think Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan and the likes are too hard to read and gets so boring in large parts. Too many characters to keep track of, and way too big worlds to remember. I liked Michael J. Sullivans Fantasy though but that is a bit more “light” fantasy if you know what I mean? And I like Isaac Asimov’s Sci-Fi. But I don’t have the time to try to find such books I like. It’s better to go for safe bets like Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Stephen King, James Rollins and many more!

Life is too short to read books you don’t like.
