#133 for the year, A Special Place by Peter Straub
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6565881-a-special-place
Date Finished: 10/4/13
How Acquired: I went to the library looking for some good horror books and came across this.
Rating: 3.5/5
Final Thoughts: What a creepy and disturbing book…I liked it. A Special Place is a novella and it tells the story of Keith, a budding serial killer, who finds guidance in his uncle who loves to cut things up just as much as Keith does. This was my first Peter Straub book and I really liked his writing. It was gory at times, but really does go to “the heart of the dark matter” and skillfully shows the inner-workings of a psychopath. A good October read.
