When I read the synopsis, I really thought this book might have a bit too much going on. It just seemed like there might be an element or two too many. Everything came together, though, and I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of chaos and confusion in the writing itself. Beyond the writing, there was no shortage of chaos and confusion. This is written in such a way, that you don't just read what the characters are going through, you go through it with them –so, yes, chaos and confusion everywhere! Even after several “a-ha!” moments, I was still as lost and fumbling in the dark, trying to figure out if I was right or how it would work –could it work? Just like the characters, I had no way of knowing until the moment when it'd be too late to change anything. The time-travel was a spot of concern for me, but I love the way it was done. It wasn't always the easiest to keep track of (which just made the book come to life even more), but it also wasn't done in any way that I could have predicted. It really was done with quite a stroke of genius. The haunting part is … haunting. My mind must have changed about a hundred times in reference to the “evil entity,” which was just plain spooky as I was left depending on the characters to put it together with me as, one by one, my theories were shot down. The characters are real. They are likable and unlikable –often at the same exact time. They do some “stupid” things. They formulate plans. They react without a plan. They hate. They love. All around, they are just very human -even the ones that are not so human. All around, I loved reading this book. It truly did come to life and may or may not have given me a fear of the dark.
