Book review: A Local Habitation|
I avoided the details of your review until after reading the book and now find that I agree with your main points very strongly.
I wouldn't have known to make the "slasher movie" connection, but it makes sense. There were lots of interesting character-to-character things going on, but I was struck by the amount of back and forth motion happening with no progress -- both physically and developmentally. I also share the sense that there were things that remained a mystery to Toby far longer than I expected, and things that were ignored or delayed when their importance seemed like it was obvious.
