One of the those weird books that could be rated 1 or 5 stars. A short novella (85 pages) yet it took me forever to read. How to descibe it? Let's just say that the genre is puritan England meets gothic litterature. Austin meets Lovecraft (not kidding, it's as good and as bad as all that). Can't tell any specifics without ruining the story. I don't really recommand it, except to very patient readers, the ones who like intricate prose and somber moods.
