    A little slow paced, but filled with horror!

    While Little Heaven was my first experience with a novel by Nick Cutter, I’ve had his other books, The Troop & The Deep, on my to-read list for quite some time now. I had heard a lot of positive things about his writing style when it comes to horror novels, so I was really excited to be able to read Little Heaven as part of the Dark Side Reads blog tour through Simon & Schuster Canada. While Little Heaven was extremely dark and disturbing (two of my favourite qualities in a horror novel), it was also very long-winded. What I Liked The graphic imagery. Little Heaven was filled with two different forms of graphic imagery. Written and visual. The words alone made me visualize some pretty dark and gruesome imagery, but then there were actual illustrations throughout the novel that provided even more dark and disturbing imagery. The darkness. Yes. This book was extremely dark. As most of you know, I tend to enjoy everything dark and creepy, so this element of the book worked extremely well for me. I’m not sure if reading it during the holiday season was the best decision, but if you’re looking for something that will make your skin crawl, this is the right book for you. img_4082 What I Didn’t Like The writing style. While the dark and disturbing elements worked well, it was everything in between that forced me to bring my rating down. There were a lot of moments in between all of the horror that were very dry and long-winded. It took me a long time to read this book, not because of it’s length, but because I kept feeling a little bored in between all of the horror. The length. While this book is just under 500 pages, which isn’t terrible in terms of length, it felt much longer. Ultimately, I just thought there was a lot that didn’t need to be there for me personally. There was a lot of dialogue that I skimmed and it was a tad over-descriptive for me. Overall, I really enjoyed the horror elements within this novel, but it felt dry and long-winded in between all of the dark and creepy moments. I loved the graphic imagery, both written and visual because I’m a weirdo like that. If you are looking for something dark and disturbing…in the best way possible of course, Little Heaven is the book for you!
