I loved the cover, super scary, but also because I loved the reference. I have seen many Japanese horror movies, and also enough scary girls like this. 🙂
Now to the book, I really liked the concept of American girl going to Japan with her teacher dad. I liked how real it seemed, I know how Japan is against outsiders/foreigners so I am glad that was also mentioned enough times.
The horror was wonderful, the cats and things happening really gave me a scare and I had a few nights of sleeping less because I dreamt of cats with eyes like a human. :\
I like the conclusion to the story, and the potential it gave for the other stories. On the other hand, I kinda dislike it too, because I felt it was too surreal and too far fetched.
