    Dollmaker was, is, unique for me. Book are normally something to be absorbed, for the story to wash over and to be carried along with it. Only after I'm done do I find which images stick with me and define the story. That was not the case with Robinson's Dollmaker. The images, the scenes he created would linger, forcing me to revisit them before I could move on to the rest of the story.

    It is a horror that creeps under your own skin and forces you to feel it. Which, with the dark places Dollmaker goes, isn't always pleasant, but is so much a part of the rightness of the story. Dollmaker is a unique story, that touches on the deepest questions of what makes us human. A book that I encourage you to read, and one that I fully intend to read again.

    Do you like disturbing things? I'm not going to lie to you - this book's pretty dark. But if you like real horror (mixed with some philosophical questions about reality and humanity), you're going to love this book. It might keep you up at night, but it's certainly not an experience you're going to easily forget. Nor will you want to forget it, as it's not only haunting, but also strangely poignant and affecting. Robinson's created a truly original story. Do yourself a favor and read it now.

    A Dark and Disturbing Trip Well Worth Taking

    This is honestly one of the most disturbing books I've ever read. That said, as soon as I started it, I couldn't put it down. I was fortunate enough to read the book during its draft stage, and I finished it the day I started it.

    The story isn't a happy one. The good things that happen are really more like not-totally-horrible things happening. Don't let that scare you away! The story is engrossing and the characters are, for the most part, deeply flawed and realistic. This is not a book for the squeamish, but it certainly IS a book for any horror novel fan looking for something new to fuel their nightmares.

    Justin's writing will keep you interested the entire journey, and if you were silly enough to read it at night like I did, maybe you'll find yourself finishing the novel at 2 am, thinking maybe it's a great night to leave the lights on.
