My thoughts on "The Sleepwalkers" by J. Gabriel Gates

(from Goodreads)

A chilling and masterfully crafted teen horror novel guaranteed to keep the pages turning, the mind reeling, and the lamp on any reader's bedside table on long after midnight.

Privileged and popular Caleb Mason is celebrating his high school graduation when he receives a mysterious, disturbing letter from his long-lost childhood playmate, Christine. Caleb and his jokester friend Bean decide to travel to his tiny hometown of Hudsonville, Florida, to find her. Upon arrival, they discover the town has taken a horrifying turn for the worse. Caleb's childhood home is abandoned and his father has disappeared. Children are going missing. The old insane asylum has reopened, and Christine is locked inside. Her mother, a witch, is consumed with madness, and Christine's long-dead twin sister whispers clues to Caleb through the static of an a.m. radio. The terrifying prophesies of the spirits are coming to pass. Sixteen clocks are ticking; sixty-six murdered souls will bring about the end of the world. As Caleb peels back layer after layer of mystery, he uncovers a truth more horrible than anything he had imagined, a truth that could only be uttered by the lips of the dead.


Well, I can't really say too much about this book since I was sorta of distracted, pre-occupied while I was reading it, so I am not going to. I do not think that it is fair if I try to say what I thought of this book if my mind wasn't completely into the story.

I can say thought that it did keep my attention, that I did like the characters and the book was also a little on the spooky side. But that is the extent of what I can honestly say about the story, and I apologize for that.

Take Care-
