Recensioner

At page 129, I realized that I love this book. That’s the point at which Cassie is on a plane and another girl tells her about Japanese ghosts.

I collect antique Japanese dolls. I hope none of them contain malevolent spirits. Strangely, this book inspired me to purchase some more antique Japanese dolls on Etsy!

For me, "The Girl from the Well" read like a more fleshed-out creepypasta.com story: full of ghosts and spirits, strange tattoos on a boys skin, a mother in a mental hospital, a really oblivious father, and a big ol heap of murder. This book had some very interesting aspects to it, like the Japanese ghostlore and mythology. Those bits were some of the best in the book!

The writing, while descriptive and even a little lyrical at times, is fairly basic. It strays more into "let me tell you everything that's happening" more often than I think it should have, but in a strange way it sort of worked here. Sometimes the tale strays off course, however, Chupeco pulls everything together at the end in a solid way.
I definitely think a teen around 16ish who loves horror would enjoy this book! It reminds me of a teenagers-in-the-woods-style slasher flick: fun, horrific, and just a little predictable.

>>>Content warning: this book is Graphic with a capital "G". There are several grisly murders described in detail and with lots of cussing. There is also talk of pedophilia and child abuse, which may be harmful to some readers.

Couldn't get through the first 50 pages of illogical world building info dumb vomiting. Yoicks.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was such a unique and thrilling tale of an old Japanese folklore. I loved how the author used such freedom her writing created such distinct voices for each character. The haunting voice of the main character was such a staccato you could almost feel the pain it took for her to try to communicate.
While I admit I was at first confused by the violence and aggression at the beginning of the book, as well as the duel plot lines, I soon found myself so captivated by the events unfolding at all my confusion was forgotten. New and exciting characters and sceneries where introduced and the main theme began blossoming.
I couldn't get enough of this book. I cannot wait for this author to write more. A great debut!
