  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Overall not a bad read! People say that it is so incredibly gorey and disturbing - which it is - but I was expecting a lot moreso than it was. I could be a bit desensitized because I enjoy horror genre books, though. Still, an interesting plot that kept me guessing and I really loved the 3 different perspectives that Karin included in the narrative. It really tied the family together and made me feel for them. Character development was good.
