Ummm

Great, Cept that the “valley of salt” chapter is literally, visually unreadable. What the hell? Tried on a buncha different formats. No go. Is this intentional???????

Chilling!!! Easily the most unique book I've ever read. All the elements of a scary tale told around a campfire. Every page is a surprise and a dare to continue...Do you dare?

Not for the non-modern reader

Yet again another beautiful peice from Danielewski. Gripping and suspenseful, if you’re unfamiliar with his formatting you may be thrown for a loop, but if you want something easy to read I suggest Goodnight Moon.
