I had a date with The Beast of Barcroft this week and it got off to a rocky start. The chapters in the beginning felt disjointed and I thought the execution was choppy and awkward. Then as I got further into it, around Chapter 8, the writing improved and the flow got a lot smoother. Once the writing and story came together, I started enjoying it a lot more. It's basically a quick thriller about a community with a terrible neighbor and an even worse animal problem. I thought the horror and gore was mildly portrayed though so even those that are squeamish or scare easily can still enjoy this one.
