In my opinion this was a good book. It was very well writen, it didn't go into too much detail about anything like other books which make you bored of it. Another good part about the book is that everything happens in 3s. My favorite part of the book is when he is driving the car extremly fast and hits what he thought is Robert Kroftip. In my opinion it was a very well written book!

I loved Brandon Swarrow's The Barn. It flows quickly just like a movie and that is what makes it so unique. There are also tiny hidden messages linked throughout the book. The chapters are short, and it only takes about an hour and a half to read.

I would recommend The Barn over any scary movie that I've seen in the past five or six years. Go get this book if you're in the mood for something unfamilar.
