  1. The Uninvited Guests was a disaster. What a boring, weird and strange book that just got stranger and stranger as it went on and on and on…. Do people really enjoy reading such meaningless far-fetched and depressing books? Bodies decaying and fingers falling off…. There is enough sadness and horror in real life. Makes me wonder about our society….and why anyone would want to fill their mind and thoughts with such bizarre reading… Of course, to each his own.
