Genre: Psychological Thriller and Suspense
Actual Rating: 3 stars
I am on a roll this week with reading and reviewing! I can't believe I have managed one book a day. There have been some really GREAT ones, some TERRIBLE ones, and some that fall between. This particular one fall in the "in between" category. I liked this book. I liked the authors execution and the mystery behind "The Tall Man" and how she manages to bring her readers to the edge of their seats. However, I felt that much of the book was SLOW. There were moments where I wondered where the heck the book was going and if we were ever going to get there. I think the authors intention was to slowly build the reader up until the brutal end BUT it was much to slow for me. Had there been more exciting parts I think I would have liked it better. On top of this, I read a similar book that surrounds the Tall Man urban legend at the beginning of the year and this one felt a bit to close to it in terms of how the story is written about it. I would have LOVED for this book to be about a particular part (view spoiler) rather than an after story, but it worked fine for what she was trying to convey. Perhaps someone in the future will solely base their book on The Tall Man and NOT it's aftermath? We shall see. But if they do, I am HOPING it was be extremely creepy!
I won't get into the plot with this book because it would spoil the entire book for those who plan on reading it. But, I will say it's not the creepy story that many are going to hope for. Sure, there are parts that will chill you to the bone, but these are few and far between.
