Wait Until Twilight
by Sang Pak
About the Book: A hauntingly strange and powerful affecting debut novel that heralds the arrival of a unique and captivating literary voice. Sang Pak's Wait Until Twilight is a coming-of-age story that explores the complex darkness infecting a damaged psyche in a small southern town.
Not long after his own mother's death, sixteen-year-old Samuel discovers a set of deformed triplets hidden behind closed doors in his sleepy Georgia community. The babies-whose shut-in mother believes they were immaculately conceived and whose menacing brother is a constant threat-take control of Samuel's every waking and sleeping thought. His only escape, he realizes, will be to save the monster children. But to do so, he must rein in his darkest impulses as he undergoes a profound transformation from motherless boy to self-defined man - because sometimes the most terrible monsters are those that live inside us all.
From me: All the pieces were there for a WOW storyline, but none of the ideas were actually fleshed out...it was an interesting read, but rather uneventful. I was looking for a little more excitement.
