some thoughts

Or: What I was thinking while reading this, which was a freebie at Readercon:



1. Yay, it's set in western Mass!
2. At one of those private schools! Always did wonder about those private schools.
3. The writing is...not bad! Almost like the guy knows what he's doing! Cool, good writing and story set at the spooky private school!
4. Wonder which "New York Times bestselling author" Nicholas Wolff is.
5. Wait, did one guy just congratulate another guy for sleeping with a lot of women?
6. Wait, did one guy just think about cheating on his wife because she's "bad in bed" and we're supposed to feel sympathy for him?
7. Oh shit, does the mid-thirties psychiatrist who sleeps with a lot of women have the hots for his nineteen-year-old patient?
8. There's a black female character. I am warily optimistic! Do not screw this up, Nicholas Wolff.
9. Wait, the guy who wanted to cheat on his wife actually started cheating on his wife and I think we're supposed to be rooting for him?
10. Wait, the mid-thirties psychiatrist is now obsessed with the nineteen-year-old patient?
11. Yep. I'm rooting for you, crazy kids!
12. Er, kid.
13. Back to the black female character! She's cleaning the kitchen!
14. Back to the psychiatrist. He's...
15. NO
16. GOD, NO
17. HE'S READING ABOUT VOODOO
18. WHY IS THIS A VOODOO STORY
19. NO, DO NOT
20. NO, **DO NOT** CUT BACK TO THE LONE BLACK FEMALE CHARACTER
21. NONONONONONONONONONO

I'm out. Fuck you, horror.
