Not finished yet, but if anyone sees me reading this and decides to give it a shot, I would like to say to you: PLEASE, give it until page 200 or so. PLEASE. The book starts off slooooow. If it started off any slower, I would have burned my copy, rather than merely throwing it across the room in disgust.
But, once Marty Strauss is settled in at Whitehead's place, the story picks up and gets GOOD! And I mean good in a scary, somewhat-gory way. So please! Keep reading!
Finally finished. Good story. Creepy. Gory. Evil. Don't know if it's one of the best horror stories of all-time (I got this book from a list of top 50 or 100 best horror novels) but I did enjoy. Like I said...Don't give up on it!
