  • A different read

    My first book by author Camilla Bruce, the story creeped me out with the entire idea of the PepperMan sucking the blood of a young child. The interpretation filled me with the horror of what the child might have gone through and how her mind tried to find its stability via the instability of an unbelievable tale. The prose, written as a fictional story, was stated as a body of facts of Cassie’s life which made reading easier. There were many things in the book that hit me hard. The author kept my thoughts a swirling mess all through the book. I raced through the book, it was 200 odd pages, to know if my interpretations were right. Were they? A surreal read

  • Simply Wonderful!

    You Let Me In, Camilla Bruce's début novel is a fascinating and disturbing work of folk horror. Impressive throughout, the plot centres on bestselling novelist Cassandra (Cassie) Tipp, who has disappeared without a trace. A controversial figure, as a child she had been the subject of a bestselling book called “Away with the fairies: A study in trauma-induced psychosis” written by her therapist, Dr. Martin. Then, later in life, she was a suspect in two gruesome murders. Her long estranged mother and sister remain firmly convinced of her guilt. Romance novelist Cassie, 74, has left a manuscript that her heirs, niece Penelope, and nephew Janus, need to read in order to discover the password to her testament, when hopefully, they'll be able to claim her estate. In the manuscript, Cassie relates an elaborate story – a fairytale. She suggests that, from a young age, she has been acquainted with a faerie community, particularly one faerie she calls Pepper-Man, whose influence, according to Cassie, is the reason for her problematic childhood, the deaths in her family, and other things, besides. It's left to you as the reader, Penelope and Janus to decide whether this story could, or not be true. What I do believe to true is that You Let Me In is a strange and beautifully written book, and the ambiguity of it is just one its strengths that makes it so fascinating. Though it's a tough, grisly read in places, it's also certainly very thought-provoking and unlike anything I’ve read before. Camilla Bruce is undeniably a talented writer and I will be looking out for her next book with (im)patience! Thank you to Camilla Bruce, Pigeonhole, the publisher, and NetGalley for the complimentary copy and the opportunity to read this book. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
