“If you leave a door half open, soon you’ll hear the whispers spoken. If you play outside alone, soon you won’t be going home. If your windows left unlatched, you’ll hear him tapping at the glass. If you’re lonely, sad, and blue, the Whisper Man will come for you” ~ Alex North, The Whisper Man.
A haunting novel to read, I couldn’t really get into the plot at first until after the first couple of chapters but then I was hooked. As adults we like to believe that the boogeymen is just make believe, but this book just brings home the fact that monsters are real, and the prey on the innocent.
You’ll be sure to double check (make that triple check) the locks on your doors and windows before turning in for the night.
