It’s boring if you only read love stories, right?

Try this novel. But don’t read it alone! Make sure there’s someone with you since you might start feeling strange. Or you might just hallucinate about things that shouldn’t be. This novel is not for those with a weak spirit but for those who want to work their mind and strengthen their heart. The more you read, the more you will think and faster your heart will beat. Don’t believe me? Try it…

I was almost put off with the baity title/lame image title and c*cky description and thinking that this is an amateurishly web novel trying to gather attention, but I was wrong, this is pretty good. It feels like this was written by a professional, the story is engaging and flowing smoothly. The main character have a quite distinct personality, that you might have irritated with him IRL, but it's quite effective for the story. The horror in this novel is the creepy mysterious type, it's not overwhelmingly scary but it... more>> made you feels that something is not right. There's also some local Malaysian flavour in it, but it's not intrusive to the storyline.

TLDR: don't be tricked by the 1 stars and baity title, it's a well written horror novel. <<less

Psychological horror, of the type that crawls over your skin slowly, so slowly that you are not sure is actually there but still something feels off.

The story itself was not enough to give me jumpscare or anything. But the everpresent feeling of confusion keep make me thinking something is off, that I might have missed something important. Honestly that's what keeps me going. Overall, I love the book and the smooth writing. It also feels nostalgic with the cultural streak so similar with my own. Although the translation can be a bit tricky but, well, I can always think back to the raw text.

The story is quite good, it's written really well. Though it can be a bit predictable i probably just read too many horror novels and illogical at times, that doesn't hinder the story much.

[spoiler="kinda reminds me of"]The whole premise of fiction melding into reality reminds of what the writers did for the movie "scary stories to tell in the dark." And a lot of parts remind me of other novels and movies but I guess since some of them are a bit niche and cliche it's understandable..[/spoiler]

All in all the... more>> novel isn't really that scary unless your someone who imagines themselves in the shoes of the main character.

Also I don't know why I initially expected there to be jumpscares like gifs and such at first but there isn't haha <<less

At first I didn't expect much from it and the first few chapters were ok but then... the plot thickened. I ended up with goosebumps and I really liked it.

It's not the type of gory horror story, it is more of a supernatural mystery/horror kind, so know what to expect.
