Interesting reading. The combination of fiction and reality. The name may scare potential readers, because it suggests that this is another hellish theme. But this is not the case. And the real facts themselves, on which the book is based, are surprising. You can find information about them. The book reminded me the Bell Witch haunting. Sometimes there is a feeling of hackneyed methods in describing the actions of young people. And I didn’t like the ending.
