I didn't finish, I can't finish, I don't know what it is. I don't care about the characters, the way they kind of rise is cool, but there just doesn't seem to be any substance. It's one of the only books I've not been able to finish. I just can't stay awake while reading it. Maybe I'm reading it at the wrong time and will re-visit, I don't know. Maybe I'll just suck it up and read the last 140 pages. But 200 pages is a really long time for me to continue reading.
I did find the death by beetles/cockroaches cool, but thought that it was ill described, I like gory details in horror books I guess.
This book reminds me heavily of the Jonathan Mayberry series, Ghost Road Blues for whatever reason.
