This book seemed about 100 pages too long and had times that were a bit disjointed to me but overall, it was a monster book and who doesn’t like them?
The creature sounded terrifying and possibly would have come more into play but the two men who knew of it’s existence had memory loss so it took a while for them both to remember it all.
There were a few times I had to shut the book in mild frustration but reminded myself that it was the writer’s first work of fiction. I am pretty sure that, if he stayed with monster books, I would read another of his. I would have liked a bit more about the creature – a bigger presence of it throughout the book – after all, it was one of the main characters.
Still, a decent work of fiction overall.
