#39: Watch The Shadows - Robin Winter

In the college town of Isla Vista, California, small, odd things start happening. Science-geek Nicole notes the crows are leaving. Meg Burdigal can’t find her tabby cat, Schrand. Brian the postman feels uneasy at the rustlings, the shadows he’s seen at the edge of his vision on his delivery route in town. Now Nicole sees fewer and fewer homeless in the park. Using her knowledge of biology and forensics, Nicole searches for answers—but will anyone take the horror she finds seriously? In this unusual thriller, "Watch the Shadows," author Robin Winter explores where the ordinary slams against the extraordinary.

REVIEW:
Hmmm.
For the first ninety-something pages, I was utterly and completely bored. I even actually contemplated DNF'ing the book. Then it picked up and started to get good, for most of the last half, anyway. I was excited reading about these alien things going around killing people and animals. It was intriguing to learn about them and wait for them to strike again. It was a totally new way of portraying alien species in stories, and I appreciated the ingenuity.
I hated, yes, hated, the very end. Literally, it was the last two pages. Not how I wanted it to end off the story at all. It went back to total boredom, so quick. Out of 174 pages, only about 70 of them were any good.

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered.
