I simply loved this book. The concept and characters draw you in. Lots of dark humour and enough pathos to really want the three main characters to win and I am left wondering what will happen to them next.

You need to be an ardent Lovecraft fan to enjoy this book. I managed 30minutes then had to admit defeat. Language to archaic and monotone.
