I’m generally not one for horror. I was a jumpy kid, and horror movies–even dumb ones–were often too much for me. I’ve gotten a bit better since then, but as much as I don’t care much for horror movies, I do greatly enjoy horror novels. Why that is I cannot say, but it may be that there is something comforting about the page that isn’t as visually worrisome as the motion picture.
I recently read author Rin Chupeco’s debut novel The Girl from the Well. Review and potential SPOILERS behind the cut.
