Review: The Girl from the Well
The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Rin Chupeco has presented a horror story that has several stories within a story that completely creeped me out. The avenging ghost actually grew into a character I liked as the story progressed even with the odd descriptions of her and her horrific behavior at times. The characters are well developed and pull you into their struggle for help and information.
A guardian angel ~ murdering monster ... Justice served to the evil and deserving while also providing some material for your own nightmares. Liked the writing style, and came to appreciate the different stories that were occurring simotaniously.
You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.
The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.
