Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com

I've been postponing this review for weeks now because basically I still don't know what to say about it.

It was by far one of the weirdest books I've ever read. But not in the weird way that I usually quite like. No, I was wondering for almost the entire book if I wasn't somehow missing what was going on and what the purpose of the complete story was.

Morgan lives secluded from the world in his big house together with a bunch of children and a doctor, but while you get the feeling something is wrong right from the start, it doesn't really progresses from me.

I didn't enjoy reading it. I never really got into the story, and for most of the time I was just waiting for something to happen. Like I said, I felt like I was missing the point of the book and the ending felt weird, even after the rest of the book. I'm sure there are people who will like this book, but I myself can not recommend it.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Three stars because I liked the characters and the atmospheric style (and I don't know how to give two and a half stars) but...

I'm the guy who usually says "if the characters, atmosphere, writing are good, who cares about plot...plot won't be what brings you back to re-read and live with the story again." For me, tbe ones that lure you back are always the best books.

That said, I don't think I've ever been so confused and left without closure by a story which seems to strive (and succeed) in being intentionally cryptic. Annoyingly so.

I'm not sure I'm ever going to read this author again. Certainly not this book.
