This was a good read, but it could have been so much more. The plot is quite compelling, but it lacks character development. I didn’t feel invested in the outcome as a result — I simply wasn’t particularly connected to any of the characters. If I have to throw down with a character driven or plot driven novel, I’ll choose a well formed character every time.

Also, this isn’t the sort of book that gives you a neatly tied up ending. It leaves so much open to interpretation, which I actually preferred here, because life is not usually black and white, especially this sort of pandemic situation.

Ultimately, I recommend it.

In fact, I’m hoping to make something on Sunday night, and maybe challenge myself to make one dish a week for the next month. I do so love my monthly challenges.

Oh and here’s the recipe that inspired me to purchase the book –

I wish this had been longer, because it had potential to be fantastic. As is, it’s a creepy little horror novella. I’m enjoying the Dark Corners novella series very much. I highly recommend checking them out. I’ve read three or four of them so far and they’ve been great.
