Rezension zu "The Halloween Children" von Brian James Freeman

Not your typical Halloween tale
misspidervor einem Jahr

Shame on me! While the beautiful print edition was sitting on my shelf for ages, I never managed to actually read it. Thankfully, I was able to get my hands on this ebook edition, and that did the trick...

The story caught me completely by surprise, it was much less Halloween-ish, or better said: different in its angle, than expected. Also, Halloween is not the mayor subject here, but a nice playground for the story to unfold upon.
The story is told from different POVs, which made me immediately take Harris' side and dislike Lynn, though ironically sometimes she uttered exactly what I would have thought in a similar family situation...

While the beginning caught me off guard and made me wonder where this would all lead too, there was a sense of unease right from the start. With Halloween just a few days away (in the story), it was easy to foresee when the culminating horror would reach its boiling point and spill its ugly innards in every direction. Though the end could have answered one more question or even two, it was disturbing as hell and still keeps on haunting me. Far from your typical Halloween tale, this story is sure to cause some sleepless nights - one way or the other.

(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
