Amanda loves her husband, her converted loft apartment and her job as an architect. On the surface she appears to have done everything right. So why does she feel so off-balance? There's a strange tapping noise in the apartment but, as Amanda's husband Ed has pointed out, it can't be a mouse because they only hear it when she's around. Much to husband's disgust, Amanda has also taken up smoking. Even the friendly dog at the train station shies away from her these days. Could it be something to do with the lustful and violent dreams she's been having recently? We could devote our lives to making sense of the odd, the inexplicable, the coincidental, but most of us don't. Neither did Amanda. After all, what we think is impossible happens all the time . . .… (més)

This book creeped me out. That coming from someone who lives on a steady diet of horror.

If you love horror, you have to read this one. ( )

This book is a very short, quick read...more of a novella. I have to say that it was fun, but predictable. It was engrossing… but seriously lacking in character development. It's very typical of it's genre. It was somewhat creepy because of Amanda's complete lack of control over her situation. However, most readers are going to need more. It had the potential to be a great little horror novel…but unfortunately it just wasn't long enough to really get very deep into the characters or their thoughts or feelings…not even for the demon herself.

Come Closer. Sara Gran. 2003. This book was billed as one of the “year’s scariest novel;” however I found it creepy, but not by any means as frightening as the reviewers did. It is a book about possession and very little else. That is the plot and there is very little character development. William Peter Blatty’s The Exorist and Legion were more scarier to me. It is short and suspenseful but obviously not for everyone. ( )

A quick intense read worth a few hours. The story is tight and well crafted. As a horror story it stands on its own as a fine work. (Spoilers ahead) The power in this story is in the questions you ask yourself about it. As a straightforward account of a demon possession the story is what it is; fine. This story poses questions about powers that can dominate our lives; loneliness, needs that we do not fully understand how to address, our subconscious mechanisms for coping with pain, and self amongst others. Fun read. ( )
