Your Nightmares Are Going To Be Infected
Reviewed in the United States on May 20, 2018
There comes a point when you’re reading a Jeff Strand horror novel when you ask yourself, Why the hell am I reading this? With BRING HER BACK (possibly the darkest of Jeff Strand’s novels, which is saying a lot), that questioning point came for me around the “60% Read” mark (according to my Kindle app). What’s happening is so dark, so outrageous, you start to wonder why you should care about these characters at all, but you do, because Jeff Strand’s writing style is so conversational, so compulsively readable that you find yourself forging ahead despite your reservations, even if it means staying up late to finish the damn book, or even if you know your nightmares are going to be infected by what you’ve read. All of this happened to me with SICK HOUSE, and it happened again with BRING HER BACK, and it will happen again with Jeff Strand’s next novel because dammit, I’m hooked.
