Dust – a Shadowy Read

DustDust by Arthur Slade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I checked out this book because the concept of Slade’s story intrigued me. Not a big horror girl, I tend to shy away from it anymore; I scare my own self too badly for it to be enjoyable reading, usually. I stepped into this luminous setting and it grabbed me. The shadows in it, the utter inability of its characters to understand what had happened, stayed with me for days. The perspective of this story and its characters was so unique, the work so cleanly crafted, that it was both disappointment and relief to finish it. This is the kind of work that makes me wish I had e-Readers for my middle school students. I would love to check this one out to them.
