Though Timothy starts to come off as an insidious blight on an entire town, when we learn the secrets he knows about other people, we learn that the people around Timothy are not so picture-perfect either; is he a wicked troublemaker, or more of a mirror that reflects the crusted underbelly of a small community? And when Timothy hints to another child that that boy's father may be a murderer, it is difficult to know if Timothy is even telling the truth. True or not, the damage is done. Suspicion and bitterness alter an innocent young boy's life forever, thanks to the infection of Timothy Gedge's words.
This is a creepy little tale, that becomes more and more thought-provoking as it skitters along. Some final passages in the novel indicate that the story should perhaps be taken as a look at a dangerous mind in early development, but I think there is much more going on than that. This tale is about all the people in Dynmouth.

I'm an avid reader. Sometimes I find books predictable - to a certain extent. Maybe I've been reading too much, but the characters in this book really caught my attention. Wacky, yet believable - a feeling of....."this can't be, but....." It could happen.
