"After reading only a few pages of
Drowned Sorrow, I was immersed in the story. Both the setting and the characters are well-crafted. Wonderful, creepy details abound, such as walls and ceilings that leak water around the corners and edges, and a grocery store that only sells water, which add to the menacing atmosphere. I can imagine this a a movie, with the eerie, icy cold lake that seems to have a mind of its own, the pallid, expressionless villagers, and the constant, dreary rain, dampness, and the puddles. (...) I was shocked not only by the chilling content but by how great I thought this book was. It's everything horror fiction should be: creepy, scary, suspenseful, and yet also touching."
