Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I did not find this book as horrifyng as the description alluded, however it was a great read-very difficult to put down, especially the final chapters. BUT having over 400 books on my nook this is the only book that has ever caused my nook to REPEATLY FREEZE. So be warned - the read may not be worth the frustration.
