This book is terrifying, but beautiful. Short as it is, I read it incredibly slowly both because I was too scared to turn the page and because I wanted to drag out the experience as much as possible. The sense of place and description of the setting is nearly unparalleled. It's written in a slow creeping style, which I guess may annoy some readers but I think it works well for the material. I'm not sure how to describe this, but if sci-fi with a dose of horror is up your alley, read this.
