I wish I could say anything positive about this book. MPR is hyping this book because of their relationship to Graywolf Press. There is nothing redeeming about this book from its intense cliche to its overt symbolism. I'm disappointed I fell for MPR's clickbait.

This felt like such a rip-off of Amityville from page one that every time I went to Goodreads to search for it, I typed "Amityville" in the Search field. Like, come on, Mr. Lennon. I found the writing to be dry, stilted, boring, and couldn't wrap my head around the awkward plot device of the "observer", which is some poorly-constructed supernatural entity watching the events unfold in this house. Just bad, and not even in a good way. I gave it two stars just because I'm feeling generous.

I'm so disillusioned with fiction right now, it's no wonder my non-fiction pile is growing while my fiction pile continues to disappoint and shrink.
