First of all, I don‘t recommend listening to the audiobook, as the narrator is terrible. However, I was able to make my way through the book and, for the most part, enjoyed it. I had expected this to be a bit of a “Dexter Junior,” and it did start out that way. But 1/3 to 1/2 way through the book, it became a horror novel. The difference was jarring. I wish it had been one way or the other. 3 1/2 out of five stars.
