    This was a straight, fast-forward story that took no detours but delivered with each sentence. The author did a great job describing the confused thoughts and mixed feelings of a ten-year-old boy. However, I would have loved if the author had put more focus on David's internal struggle between his own conscience and the mosquito's presence instead of just letting it take over.I also missed some explanation of the origin of the mosquito and its motivation (besides the obvious...). I imagined something like an alien force or the ghost of an ancient creature that took hold of the little bloodsucking pest, or maybe even a hive-like collective mind. But I will never know for sure...Still, Mosquitos is a recommendable, original horror novella which I enjoyed very much
