Caitlin R. Kiernan is an amazing writer. Everytime I read one of her books I feel like a voyeur because she bares her soul like no other writer does. The good. The bad. The ugly. And the beautiful. It's all here in this book which feels to me like her most personal yet.

Echoes of Peter's Straub's seminal Ghost Story echo through out this book. Anything I can say about Kiernan's work will diminish her talent.

This is poignant. This is raw. This is as real as it gets.

We are all ghosts.

Straub showed us that. Kiernan reminds us of that. Remind does a disservice to this book. The Drowning Girl makes it personal.

I am in awe.

Remarkable novel from a unique writer. I've also read her earlier "The Red Tree"; I think this one is stonger.

I was really disappointed in this book. It is really slow and can be somewhat hard to follow at times. I couldn't get past chapter 3.
