GOAT DANCE by DOUGLAS CLEGG
* * *
There is a learning curve with this book.
At least there was for me. I'm really into small town horror stories, so I welcome large ensemble casts with open arms. But this story, when moving from character to character through the town, felt a little bit all over the place to me.
Have you ever seen the movie Cabin In The Woods? This book felt kind of like that film. There is a lot of buildup, and ultimately the ending is a huge buffet of creep-out and grossness that almost comes out of left field while still making sense.
I wasn't a fan of how similar the "Eater Of Souls"/"Kid Eating Spider" was to other horror icons like Pennywise, I'd hoped there would be a bit more of and identity to it. But it still served its purpose well, and as the debut novel for this author, it was great.
