Sinopsis de THE MONSTERS WE DESERVE
An ambitious and original take on the gothic’ Observer.
‘Quiet, riveting and compelling with an unnerving atmosphere and a deeply troubling sense of unrest that must be experienced. Genre-defying, truly great horror’ Fallen Star Stories Blog.
‘A taut menacing ghost story’ The Bookseller, ‘One to Watch’.
‘Wow, so elegantly done, so intelligent and so dark’ Nicola Davies.
‘Deeply atmospheric and gothicly creepy, this is probably my favourite Sedgwick book to date … This is a must’ Askews Children’s Newsletter.
‘There is a great cinematic quality to the writing’ The Bookbag.
‘This slender, beautifully written novel is probably best read in one atmospheric sitting’ Guardian.
‘Monsters are born in the pages of books but spread their twisted limbs in far wider and unexpected ways. This premise is at the centre of this slick, teasing and knowing novel … Erudite and gripping, this is a dialogue between literary traditions … Exquisitely written, the book is also beautifully illustrated – in monochrome. The thinking reader’s spook-fest’ The Lady.
‘This claustrophobic monstrous tale will lure you in to witness the tortured mind of a writer’ South Wales Evening Post.
‘Beautifully written … Sedgwick sustains the sense of dread well’ SFX.
