This novel was so much fun!
We have a weird, disfunctional, memorable family of villains and two female main characters you could root for, and who complemented each other. Charlene, in particular, is compelling as the selfless heroine. You can’t help but love her. Further to that, it was nice to read a story in which the main character is a wise-cracking lesbian.
Besides being a dark horror, My Pretties is filled with Strand’s sarcastic and dry sense of humour. It gives the majority of his stories that 80s cheesy horror movie feel.
Again.... I loved the story.
The only other comment I have is the cover of the book. The picture itself is fine but I was completely distracted by the typeface. Is it me or is there a very odd space between the R in Pretties and the first E? I kept staring at the cover as the word “Pretties” looked so strange, and I kept asking myself if Pretties was spelled wrong.
If that was the intention, then bravo. Otherwise, you may want to consider the font and spacing, and its effect on marketing the book.
Buy this book now if you want to read one of Strand’s best novels.
