Unaware that this house was anything but abandoned not only do they enter, but they enter the basement. Terror & horror ensue. Stanley learns more about himself than he would ever want to know or imagine; what lurks inside Stanley? Where does it come from?
This book is dark, disturbing and violent. Not for the faint of heart. I often wonder about artist that create art in the form of horror and gore. The Stephen Kings of the world, if you will. Where do you find it inside your self to write about such explicit things that demand warning labels before reading??
With that being said, this book is VERY well written. Author, Jon Athan paints such clear, vivid descriptions of his characters that it’s like watching a movie. The langue, the detailed description of the clothing……..painted so well I couldn’t put it down.
Some how, Aftan manages to make these characters so real that at times you find yourself rooting for the most evil people imaginable.
