My Rating: 5 Stars
Frightening, stunning, a page-turner! The absolutely amazing novel, impossible to put down until the last page.
I congratulate Keith Donohue on the idea and the creativity of this novel and the style of writing. I feel in love with the idea of the puppet world, even if it does give me goosebumps. Some parts of the book really got my hairs staying-up, spooky is the only way to describe it. One of the details that really got me into the story was the way Donohue described the world of puppets, I really got a perfect picture of that reality almost as if I was there. I found it be an intriguing novel and it kept me interested all the way to the last chapter. As for the ending: brace yourselves. Be aware of this bittersweet conclusion of this amazing novel.
I must say, in my honest opinion, that I found it unjust and almost cruel. It's definitely going to stay in mind for a while, which I think it's the objective.
Very enjoyable read and I highly recommend it!
