" A pretty interesting and creepy book. I have read a lot of reviews where people thought the end was weird, but I found it of a piece with the book. I think most folks probably expect a rational ending--but the book is supernatural in all senses of the word. The character of Vidoq is I think a way of throwing the reader off the scent of the answer, ironically enough. I liked the book very much. My only criticism is that I found the character of Maddy to be almost entirely unsympathetic. She is shallow and ignorant, and the main character's motivations for protecting and loving her were therefore hard to relate to, at least for me. "
