I've been posting links to reviews by critics on this blog, but I often like to check out what other, more general readers think about books and films, which is why I place so much faith in sites like Goodreads and IMDB. An Other Place has picked up several reader reviews over on Goodreads to date, including comments such as the following:
"This was utterly brilliant. Darren Shan/Dash is a master in horror, somehow it is so funny! I've LOLed and quoted this book and I want to recommend it to anyone who likes weird books." Odette.
"This is probably the fastest I've EVER read a (standalone) book, and it says a lot. I'm not normally a fast reader & sometimes it takes me at least a few days to finish a book (and sometimes months) but this took me less than a day!" Mahtab.
"I personally read this entire book in two sittings, which is a very rare achievement for me as a lot of the time a book doesn’t grip me by the time the second act even has a chance to kick in, but this book had me in it’s tangly and confusing grip by the time I’d hit the second chapter. I cannot recommend this book more than enough and I will certainly be telling everybody about it who is willing to listen, as my mind is still turning well after the final page was read." Danny.
