I had really high expectations towards this book, because the first one was incredibly good. Really, it was! However, it didn't take more than a few pages for me to realize that this book wouldn't meet those expectations. I had to read quite a lot of pages before this book picked up pace, and that was a big disappointment to me. I also had a hard time keeping track of all the cases, which only added to my confusion.
This book isn't nearly as creepy as the first one was. Instead, this one is gross. Really. It made me sick every now and then. It worked okay, but it didn't have the same kind of cliffhanger-feeling.
Compared to the first book, it's clear to me that he's a more experienced writer now. The writing was much better and really easy in this book. Unfortunately, I didn't like this story as much as the first one. He's gotten better at some things and lacked on something else.
