Review: The Sandman, by SJI Holliday

Mr. SandmanMr. Sandman by SJI Holliday
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read from a great author. This time a horror novella and I loved every bit of it.

Set in London with a trip to the seaside, Mr Sandman is a twisted tale built around being careful what you wish for. The main character wants her boyfriend to be different and visits a fortune teller on the pier. She ends up getting more than she wished for. And, as usual, Susi Holliday adds in a nice twist at the end just to mix things up and keep you thinking about it long after its done.

Well written characters who you can imagine knowing in real life, and fast paced, I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that didn't fit for me was the external cover, as I didn't feel it related to the story very well; I wouldn't have picked it up based on that alone. However, the inside cover was much more fitting. So don't judge this book by its cover, it has a great dark tale to tell inside.
