The Bad Seed
I have been doing well with this, although since I returned to work full time, I haven’t had as much time to keep going. However, I pulled out a box of stuff that my mother had given me and this book was in there. It is falling apart. Some of the pages crumbled as I opened the book. Definite weeder.
If you don’t know anything about this book, I encourage to check out a “nice” copy from your library. This book is of a genre I will call creepy kids. Little, perfect Rhoda (said evil kid) is the picture of innocence and cooperation. Too bad she is a killer. Evil kids have always been the scariest type of horror lit, in my opinion. I put it in the category with Rosemary’s Baby (Levin), Wicked Angel (Caldwell), or the Exorcist (Blatty). (I had to sleep with one eye open after reading Rosemary’s Baby when I was about 15. <shivers>)
Sleep well tonight!
