As controversial, terrifying and sickening as some of the subject matter of this book is, I'd have to say it's up there among my favorites. Jack Ketchum is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors...top three. I'm ashamed to admit that I've taken this long to start reading his work. Off Season and Offspring were my first two by him (read back to back) and I thought they were brilliant. I took some time away from the author, but now I'm thinking of doing a lot more Ketchum reading.
Not a book for everyone, but an amazing read nonetheless.
