The Crying Boy is a creepy, chilling read. It is packed full of intrigue and suspense with threads of horror entwined.
The author has put a lot of time and hard work into this book and that is clear to see in the detail included. It is these details that snared my attention and pulled me further into this book, I was hooked within the first few pages and devoured every single page as and when I could.
The characters are well written, and most are likeable. The Shaws have been through a lot before moving to Swallows Nest, and their struggles are far from over. But these two refused to quit and they keep fighting for themselves and for each other! I really enjoyed how these characters interact and they are easy to relate to.
The Crying Boy was a creepy, addictive and thoroughly enjoyable read from its very beginning.
I am so glad I finally made time to pick it up and read it.
