Rin Chupeco's writing style in this book was very unique. I actually think it helped add to the atmosphere of the book. It's not often that you get a ghost's point of view in a book. You do here. The scares are slow and creep up on you. There are also self contained scenes where the action is non-stop, and gory, and frightening. This one would make a perfect movie. I really loved all the creepy elements, the upside down girl, the possessed dolls, the unknown lurker. I wish I had loved the story. There were parts that I thought were Awesome, while others were just too drawn out for me and I honestly got a little bored. I think many readers will find this one scary, but go into it knowing that the writing style is unique and the storyline moves slowly.
