Slights - in UK stores 1 July 09I’m not sure how to write this review.

I don’t think I have the words to describe how dark and depraved and strangely, perversely heartbreaking Slights is.

Head on over to The Book Smugglers for the latest review of Slights (launched in the UK and Australia on July 1st, US and Canada October 1st).

As well as being extremely positive about the book (and after Slights it you’ll see why), it is also one of the most thoughtful analyses of the text that we’ve read. Not only do the good folk over at The Book Smugglers know good literature when they read it, they also know how to write about it!

Slights is a forceful, harrowing read, and is not only the best horror novel but one of the best books I have read in 2009. Be warned, this is a dark read and certainly isn’t for everyone…but I loved it. Absolutely recommended, for those with a strong constitution.
