    Too dark and depressing

    Firstly, yes, the writer is talented.. the writing itself is good. Two stars because of that fact- but 1 star is how I felt about it, really. This is not a murder mystery, or thriller nor is it a spooky fun-type frightening book. It's just frightening because the story gets more awful as it goes along. It's about a journalist who goes home to Ireland to research its folktales and songs..he winds up remembering more than he'd ever wanted to, regarding his family and his history-his own personal story is what you don't expect it to be. Unfortunately the reviewer who said this book was "too dark" for them- is right for me also. To me, the main character's tale is depressing, sad, full of despair- inducing personal situations, desires and awarenesses. Frightening, yes-- but not in an interesting way.. More like a very well-written "true crime" story, but again- too dimly lit like a subway bathroom and repellant like a filthy one. I was ice-cold when I finished it, and immediately deleted it from my account. No, not because it offended my religious beliefs or something similar. But simply because it was miserable.
