The ominous foreshadowing, frightening killer(s), language, and (fascinating) use of parentheses make this brilliant thriller unique. I do have to admit that Hannah, the housewife whose husband takes her for granted, grates on my nerves a bit. Now that there are more chapters narrated by Mikey & others, I am enjoying it even more. #amreading #serialkillers #thriller

I wanted to like this and push through but I couldn‘t. The first few chapters are just so strangely written—even if they are hauntingly beautiful—it feels like it‘s trying to be something it‘s not. And the more I read, the more the murder/mystery aspect just feels like the background and I cannot care any less about Hannah (main character). DNF.
