Not the best horror dark book I've read. It is easy to see why this series is popular. Very much a pulp serial killer genre. I may try another in the series knowing that this was the first but I think I need more deep books. Stephen King, Joe Hill etc have nothing to fear. Read full review

It seemed to skip over so many parts and I believe that the show had many more (ah) Deep inclination of the breath factor.I'm a little skeptical on buying the next book but since I started it, I will finish it....
