I finished this very good book in a couple of days...and as always, for me, that’s always the sign that I’ve enjoyed it.
Only a couple of things prevented it from becoming a 5 star read.
The characters were well developed and the storyline was good and creepy. The concept of unnerving chalkmen messages was a good one. The plot was tense and tightly woven, although got a little confusing at times and I had to go back over a few parts and re-read.
A couple of drawbacks were that I’m not a fan of the supernatural scenario. I don’t much care for dreams coming to life, where things become a bit too unrealistic and zombie/ghost-like. Supernatural themes always make me lose a bit of interest. Fortunately there wasn’t TOO much of this.
Also, even though the ending was good...it got a bit messy with a few too many unlikely events happening...almost like the author tried to cram too many “oh my god!”moments into it in a rush.
However, all in all , mostly it was a well put together story.
