Because of the mood it set and the depth of the creepiness The descriptive language and sinuous twisting grasp of malice that just entwined Not only you the reader either For some reason the length of this novella heightened the effect did not lessen it It's a one sitting goose bumps and hair rising on your neck interlude In fact much later I had it pop into my head and that heaviness of dread retur
