Review: THE WINDOW by Glenn Rolfe
Never gonna look in a mirror or out a window again! Thanks to Mr. Glenn Rolfe, who brings a most implacably terrifying tale, one with historical antecedents (can't argue with those grimdark Teutonic "fairy tales," now!) and a way-strong contemporary setting in which he works in several important interpersonal issues. On one level, THE WINDOW is a contemporary coming of age, with friendships, new love, dealing with parents' separation and new boyfriend/girlfriend, bullies, changing schools, etc. On a deeper level, no one should be subjected to the terrors of the coming of age of James, Carrie, Kevin, Eric, and Hank. Many adults could not have coped. THE WINDOW is deep and rich with Meaning, and even if all you're hoping for is a strong scary story--THE WINDOW will surely scare your socks off!
