Review for One-Eyed Doll

Review for One-Eyed Doll

A scary doll, a witch, and a boy who is dedicated to saving his sister no matter what!

This is a wonderful Halloween read, it features all sorts of creepy things, the biggest of them a one-eyed doll taking over control! Dolls are one of those things that I stay far far away from. You never know when one starts talking and possessing your mind!

This one starts off pretty nicely, but things take a turn for the eerie when our MC’s little sister finds a box in the garden of the haunted house. Anyone would know to run away, stay away, or to just leave the box as it is, but not these kids. Typical horror stupidity right there. But then again, if we didn’t have people acting stupid during creepy things we wouldn’t have horror books/movies.

Our boy is at first quite happy his sister has a new friend, but he quickly notices changes. His sister is acting weird, he hears her talking to someone (or something), and that is just the beginning. I just loved our MC, how he cared so so much for his little sister, he tried to help her. Tried to figure out what was going on.

With each page, each day passing, things got gradually creepier.

We eventually find out what is going on with the doll, what it is, and what it can do.

The ending was exciting, but also spooky, especially those last pages. Dang, burning would have been better I guess?

There are also illustrations throughout the book and I love how well they capture the mood of the story. The doll is creepy as hell, and I think it wasn’t such a good idea to read this one late at night.

All in all, a book I would recommend, it is perfect for this Halloween season.
