Shelves: my-must-reads , favorites , mystery , ghosts , japan-stuff , love-that-title This was creepy. Thoroughly creepy. Not scary. Though, I think part of it is that I already saw the anime before diving into the novel. Because of this, I already knew what to expect. The anime was probably scarier than the novel, too, since you get more on screen gruesome death in the anime than the novel. So in essence, this series is a horror mystery. I do want to say that the description is somewhat misleading.
Yes, This was creepy. Yes, Sakakibara tries to figure out the curse. There is no vengeful spirit, though! This makes sense because most of the characters, even main ones, tend to die off fairly quickly, and with such a large cast to murder, you kind of expect it. You do learn a lot about Sakakibara and Misaki especially Misaki , but some of the others If you want more character building and jump scares, go watch the anime. If you want more curse focus and creep factor, read the novel.
I really enjoyed this, so if you like creepy and you like mystery, I highly recommend it.
