American Elsewhere is seriously disturbing. It starts out as a kind of odd, slightly creepy kind of mystery. It reminded me of Neil Gaiman, actually. It's part science-fiction, part horror, a little fantasy maybe? But it gets really, really dark. And really creepy. Disturbing. Terrifying. I actually couldn't sleep a couple of nights. I was having the most bizarre, insane dreams. If you're looking for something freaky, this might be for you. I loved it.
