An odd combo of literary fiction and horror
on June 4, 2014
The Killing Circle wasn't a bad read, exactly, but I did find that I had some trouble with it. It reads as though the author was trying to combine the literary and horror genres. At times he succeeds, but at other times, the attempt just seems to slow down what's happening, nearly to the point where I had trouble reading through to when it began moving again.
Overall, though, I did like the mystery/horror aspect of the novel. The author did a good job of keeping the reader in suspense, and the ending was something that I didn't see coming.
