"But my reverie was soon tempered by disastrous news."
I rushed out and got myself a copy of this when I heard that it was being adapted into a film. My usual preoccupation with reading the novel first, kicked in as always. It does read something like a film treatise. It has moments of pure suspense and horror and then there's a kind of void. There is just something missing and I think its the fact that the story doesn't really finish. Perhaps it is the start of a longer series and I lack the patience to embark on another series of anything.There just aren't enough hours in a day.
4 out of 5 moody, suspense ridden moments but lacking a certain something.
