The horror in this book has nothing to do with imaginary monsters, but with the horror of what humans are able to do to one another. It is fascinating
The story, while sometimes dark and sad, is mostly on an upbeat note, as things seem to come together at some point. Many characters do the honorable things, criminals step up when needed and the town comes together.
This is a tense and ugly story, but it sucks you in.
This is a clever book and the translation is simply brilliant
