My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Many other reviewers have already expressed the admiration I have for this excellent novel. It’s a vampire novel that’s not about vampires. A post-apocalyptic novel that’s not really post-apocalyptic. A horror novel marked more by empathy and sorrow than gore.
Evocative, gorgeous prose with sentences that capture emotion with a minimum of words, Day Boy is a wonderful read from start to finish that will completely change your mind about what a horror novel can be.
A fantastic book.
