SLENDER MAN by Anonymous

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm probably one of the very small group of people who actually enjoyed the Slender Man movie, so of course I had to grab a copy of this book.

Matt is a student in a private school. His parents expect him to become a lawyer but he has other plans. But right now, they send him to get therapy because he's having some pretty weird dreams. When his friend Lauren goes missing, he's determined to find out what happened to her and delves down a dark path...

I love the way this story is told. Included within this lovely hardback tome are journal entries, audio transcripts, police interviews, story snippets, letters, instant messages, and other interesting pieces. And every new piece slowly stitches a very dark story together.

One of the things I enjoyed the most is how the creepy Slender Man stuff started to appear when I least expected it. I find the Slender Man meme and internet urban legend intriguing. Not so much the real-life stuff that included little assholes using this as an excuse to stab someone. People always have to ruin everything, don't they? 😑

Anyway, back to the book because I enjoyed the hell out of it. This is creepy, interesting and so very much addictive. In case I didn't mention this, I'm a huge urban legends fan, so this was right up my alley.

I couldn't put this book down. Seriously, I started reading in the afternoon, went about my real-life business, picked it up again at night and stayed up until I finished. I SO wanted to get to the end and was NOT disappointed. The scenes where Matt experiences all the super spooky stuff were very engrossing. I couldn't look away and found them deliciously twisted.

This is such a fun & chilling book! 😈
