Hemlock Grove - Brian McGreevy Read this after watching the Netflix series, which was sooooo slooooow. I still recall with acidic fondness a lengthy and meaningless tie tying scene with Olivia and Norman. Pointless. The book was more compact and things actually happen one after another. The writing was too clunky at times, trying to be cool or rhythmic, I think, although sometimes it worked. Point of view shifted inexplicably a couple times. With this much interesting material, it could have been improved with another edit to fix some of those distractions.
