Review: The Little Men

The Little Men The Little Men by Megan Abbott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free eARC of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

This was fun. Right from the start I could tell I had something worthwhile in my hands, as Abbott lays out the 1950s Hollywood neighborhood that is the setting for this novella. In a few short paragraphs, she conveyed the imagery so well that I wanted to visit there, or maybe stop and have a beer.

This story actually felt like an episode of The Twilight Zone. Perhaps the time period that the story was in added to that feel, but the while way it unfolded would have fit perfectly into one of their half hour segments. There's a mystery here, and several chills as Abbott weaves her chilling little tale.

Megan Abbott is certainly on my list of authors to watch.
