    Fantastic, creepy, cannot recommend enough

    A Head Full of Ghosts was a terrifying look into the way mental illness affects both the individual and the family. The horror came partly from the exorcism aspects, of course, but also from Marjorie's family not being able to get her appropriate treatment. Any instance of improperly treated mental illness fringes on a horror story, in my eyes. Tremblay's exploration of the unreliable narrator was intelligently done, seducing me into believing the narrator and then being reminded that her telling cannot be trusted. Pairing this with the critical analysis of the blog posts ended up putting together an incredible read. Tremblay knows how to write people, and he knows how to write women. All his characters are realistic and flawed, eliciting our sympathy because their motives simply make sense. I recommend this book to everyone. If I can push a copy into your hands, I will. Go read this: treat yourself to an excellently written series of twists and turns, and see if you can figure out who to trust. read more reviews at www.katielovestoread.tumblr.com

    A solid story

    This is a pretty good book about a troubled family in a "reality" TV show, mental illness, and the impacts they have. Short enough not to overstay it's welcome or feel drawn out.

    One of the best horror novels in recent years.

    This is not your average scary horror story. The author knows his material very well and I totally enjoyed his approach to supernatural phenomena. Also, very good prose, witty and full of horror genre references. Don't miss this!

    So good.

    The story grips you. Laid out in a forward and back style that's not at all confusing, you'll find yourself lost in little Merry's tale, terrified and confused with her, believing, then not believing, then believing again. What an absolute pleasure of a read. Highly recommend to anyone who likes their horror wrapped up in a compelling, very readable tale.

    Head Full of Ghosts

    Loved it, my favorite books in my collection. Linking mental illness and religious fanaticism, it's very psychological and atmospheric. Told from the point of view of the younger daughter, a story about the older daughter's struggles with mental illness (or possession, depending on your view).
