2.5 /5 Stars
This novella has the perfect setup: A creepy old mansion on the outskirts of town, a teenager who finds himself working there to save up money for a car, and an equally creepy employer. Add the employer's grotesque and mysterious appearance, and you're sure to have a creepy little read. Well, that's what I thought the majority of the book at least. But then came the ending...
I'm not sure if I missed something, or just simply didn't understand what was going on, but I absolutely dislike it when I get invested in a story and then the ending makes no sense. Of course, reading in the horror genre means the endings will most likely not be good, which is not what I'm talking about. I also don't mind an open ending, but this wasn't that either. The ending in Unknowing, I Sink just didn't do anything for me but leaving me confused.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this review copy.
