Even though the characters were not particularly likeable, they were all understandable and sympathetic to a degree. I really found myself rooting for Rebecca and her small family. I even found myself hoping things would go well for Diesel, which is saying something considering I'm about as diametrically opposed to his character as it's possible to be and still be human.
People who already really enjoy horror will find more than enough to satisfy here... people who enjoy noir will most likely enjoy this book as well... the people who enjoy literary/dystopian fiction will almost certainly be in raptures of delight. A really well crafted enjoyable(?) creepy read. Any fans who entered the room through the Joe Hill/Clive Barker/Stephen King door, enjoy this new source of horror from a new author who can stand up there with the masters.
Five big stars.
