Basically the book was disappointing. I've been a big fan of Stine since I was a child. I had very high hopes for this book. I was very excited to see that he'd written a book for adults. But honestly he should probably stick to writing books for children and teens. The book wasn't scary. It didn't ever manage to capture my attention and interest. I found it boring at many parts and wanted to skip ahead a lot. It didn't have any realism to it even before it started to get too much into the supernatural elements. The characters just didn't seem like they were developed enough. The plot didn't turn out well at all. Stine is a great writer but adult books like this just don't seem to be a strong point of his.
