At The End.
I had to post that first. I found this book by accident and thought, Oh, this is gonna be good! Do me a favor- .watch the trailer for a minute. See why the story caught my eye, then finish reading my book review. It's cool; I'll wait...
waited for the cringe. I waited for the fear and itchy flesh. I Kept reading and reading, looking for anything that would creep me out... and never read them! I was mortified, panicked and paralyzed with regret. I wasted so much time! Oh- I'm sorry... I was so caught up in my dislike for this book, I never told what the story was about?
Alex and Susan wanted a new place to stay but within their budget. Instead, they found a wonderful apartment that had everything they wanted- even a small 'bonus' room for Susan's painting. Sadly, the cost was above their budget, their marriage and later, their sanity. At least Susan's sanity. She begins to think the $3,500 a month apartment is haunted, then is more than convince the place is infested with - 'Gasp!' - Bedbugs!
I will say no more.
The book is a bomb! I'd describe the story with adjectives like BORING, and ANTICLIMACTIC and a few choice ones... but I don't curse. Much. Ben H. Winters, the author, got me, the same way I got you by saying, the book terrified. Well, it actually did because I was more than scared of the time I'd wasted when I could have been reading a much better title- though I must say, the ending does surprise! I thought the old lady was off but not to the point of... Well, you'll have to check it out if you're interested.
The narrative was pretty good and I felt I was going through a bit with her, but it wasn't enough to keep me. Once I'm caught up in a story that's supposed to go one way, if it goes another, I'm done. The only reason I got through it so fast is because I quickly realized what was going on. A movie, okay but predicting a book? I hated the entire experience of Bedbugs and that's saying a lot because I've read a lot of crap books.
Sorry for the trick, but this book tricked me first!
