While I really want to say this book scared the living daylights out of me, it didn't. It was scary at times when tension ran high and I certainly side-eyed my parents' Golden Retriever while reading - just in case. Mostly though just as things were getting tense there was a line skip and the story changed point of view to something completely different. This made it quite hard to feel very engaged and even made the book a bit hard to read as I almost lost interest in it a few times.
Overall it was a pretty good book with well written characters and interesting stories of their own, but all I really cared about after all was the main plot about the dog turned monster.
As you can see above the story starts out talking about the monster of a man Frank Dodd. Why, I never really figured out. You see he has no actual role in this. This book, I can say without spoiling anyone I hope, is all about the dog.
Poor poor dog.
