I am shelving this with my other facetious "to-not-read-ever" reviews, even though I have nothing against the book. My parents owned a copy of it when I was very young and I was always fascinated and creeped out by the evocative cover with the lost shoe and the smear of blood. I spotted a used copy at a library sale a few weeks ago and debated buying it but I have too many books to read already. I contented myself with looking it up on Goodreads and I saw the alternate cover linked to this review. And suddenly I question. I question why my parents just left lying around what is obiously some sort of weird monkey insect pedophilia fetish book. I also question WTF was going on when this cover was illustrated.Mostly that second part.
