    1. I've read reviews on other sites that compare it to Stephen King. There's something in the way this is written that I found familiar,too; the author and SK have a fairly clear, uncluttered way of writing that's easy to read and yet really evocative.

It was a bit all over the place. The style was teetering on the knife edge of being unbelievably awful or distinctive and it was far too long - we really didn't need to know the back story of everyone who pops up in the story (usually only to be killed.
