I…. was NOT expecting that5 star

Wow. I’m in reader’s shock. I won’t give it away, but the ending?? It feels so unreal. This story kept me reading, every chapter ended with a twist. You simply can’t stop once you start and to me that is one of the best qualities in literature that I have ever seen! The author definitely does not lack the ability to capture the pure terror Lucas was feeling, and I applaud that. 10/10 would recommend.55

Madhouse…or ClichéHouse?1 star

This book is honestly creepy. So, if you want a book with no apparent storyline, no psychological or mental “deepness”, this is the book for you. Estrada’s lack of powerful and meaningful words and storyline and character development almost immediately shuts down the story. I am not saying this is not a horror story. It certainly is. But nothing more. It is filled with incorrect grammar for one thing, as well as shallow 1-D characters and needless gore. Every “spooky” thing in this story is cliché, overdramatized and shallow. This is not a deep or meaningful book. It is a three-day read of pure superficial scares. If you are looking for something needlessly gross, bloody, completely shallow and not mentally stimulating, choose this book. I’m sure you’ll agree it’s very very below average in the psychological thriller department.15
