Tanglewood Road follows 16 year old Cody, a boy who ends up seeing some crazy stuff and has to deal with it. It's an extremely quick read--on my Nook it's 82 pages. It took me two days just because I was so tired last night I was falling asleep with the Nook in my hand. It's got a deliciously creepy start, and I relished it. It easily could have been a Twilight Zone episode, albeit a particularly grotesque one. (In fact, there is actually an episode where a couple wakes up to a totally empty town.) However, it kind of went off in a totally different direction. The creepy demon took a backseat to romance and random meetings with new people. I got the chills when I read what Duarte had found out about Cody's neighbors, and then all the demon does is leave white yarn? Come on. I wanted to be freaked out. Instead, I got to know all of Cody's new friends. Which isn't a bad thing at all. They were good characters and each had their own issues they had to deal with.  But again, I wanted to see more demonic action. More of Cody and Adam's demon. Even Dominic's demon, because if I were him I'd be traumatized. But the one that got the most time is the one I was least interested in--a pervy old man. And even that had very little scare factor. And I think I'd built up my expectations too much after the initial encounter Cody had with his demon. The story started out fast and aggressive, with the fire happening within the first 20 pages I think, and then we've got a meandering middle of Cody avoiding showers constantly and eating junk food and watching his show to avoid falling asleep.  And with that, I loved the ending, and I'm also frustrated by it. Why wasn't THAT part of the whole book, now the last five paragraphs!? I wanted that the whole way through! It was an awesome way to end the book and I wish the whole thing had been like that. Honestly though, I was still satisfied with it. It was a good story and had likable characters--actually, Cody was probably my least favorite. The ghostly and demonic interactions, when they occurred, were well done. I think there's a solid future in creepy stories here, and I'd love to read more.
