    One thought on “Green Willows”

    1. This was an exceptionally good read. I enjoyed it immensely, and gave me a sensation from Stephen King's IT, "They all float down here".

    3. For the first half, maybe more, I was amazed by how good this was & wondering how something this good could be so unknown. But somewhere along the way things got way too crazy.

    4. I found this book to be excellently written.Descriptive, enjoyable, horrific, and entertaining.I will be posting a more in depth review on my blog if you wish to read: gothicromancereviews.
