Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek - Jack Ketchum Four stars for the story. Five for the author's afterword which was mind-blowingly similar to a personal experience.

I'm going with the full five stars based on that alone. Ketchum consistently has an emotional impact on me but this was the creepiest one yet. I think Jack and I dated the same girl. Different time, different place, different name - but I'm still pretty sure it was the same girl.

The first 90% was a great Ketchum story; as I expect it should be. The last 10% floored my ass. It was like reading my own biography. Freaked me right the fuck out.

Read it.
