2.5 or 3 starsI think what made this book so interesting is that it's told from the perspective of the illness and how it matures and takes more and more of Mike everytime. It's different and creative, making me feel like I was the illness itself. Unfortunately this novel is barely 200 pages and because of this, it moves far too fast. The characters feel very flimsy and childish, going from best friends to complete enemies in only a matter of days. It's not very realistic. I was also hoping for a more sadistic protagonist who, not only told Mike what to do but told him horrible things about everyone around him. The protagonist albeit creepy, isn't creepy enough for me. I was hoping for a lot more from this book that I just didn't receive. Full review to come.
