This one got under my skin BAD. Scary stuff. I highly recommend

I just finished this book. I started it a couple days ago and I would have devoured it in one sitting but, you know--life--so I gulped down huge chunks of it in whatever reading time I could steal. I can't believe it's just under 200 pages! I feel like so much happened in these pages...
...certain things are going to scare certain people. Okay? Let's just start there. Not everything is going to have the same impact on every, single reader because we all come to the story with so much baggage--preferences, worldviews, triggers, perspectives, pet peeves, history, so much baggage.
For me, Sara Gran touches on a subject that hits very close to home. So, the protagonist, Amanda--I can relate to her.
Things happen to her that feel akin to my context.
And then when the author starts to turn up the heat and the bubbles begin to gather around the edges of the pot...the water starts getting warm...and then hot...hotter...and then BOILING...I felt it all. I felt everything Amanda did and it just straight terrified me.
This book got under my skin in the worst/best way.
Like, I even wondered about myself there for a minute, you know??
People who have read this book, are you nodding your head in agreement? Did you go over that checklist and you're like, hmmmm, I could score a 3 or a 4 right now...
Those of you who haven't read this book, this is for you:
I'm recommending this read for people who enjoy those psychological, unreliable-narrator, creeping-dread, disturbing stories that just get more and more messed up and crazy as it goes on.
Truly, there were some stand out moment here that if this was a book, I'd cover my eyes.
Scary, scary, scary.
Maybe not for some--I understand that, but it was for ME. Big time.
