Goth Review

I bought Goth on a whim in my last haul. I really looked forward to it, but it ended up not working out. Let’s talk about it.


“Morino is the strangest girl in school–how could she not be, given her obsession with brutal murders? And there are plenty of murders to grow obsessed with as the town in which she lives is a magnet for serial killers. She and her schoolmate will go to any length to investigate the murders, even putting their own bodies on the line. And they don’t want to stop the killer, but simply to understand him.”–

My Thoughts on Goth

If I’m being honest Goth confused me from the very beginning. To start with, it’s a short story collection, which is not mentioned anywhere in the synopsis. And it looks like the stories are broken down into chapters like a novel would have. I thought I’d lost my mind a few times when a new perspective popped up and it didn’t have anything to do with the previous chapter. Once I figured that out, I thought I would enjoy it more. The writing hooked me in. Somehow it was dry but engaging all at the same time. I wasn’t necessarily enjoying myself, but I couldn’t put it down.

But the main thing that bugged me about Goth was the unbelievability of the story. There were multiple murderers confessing their crimes to random teenagers. And there were so many instances where people just didn’t act in a normal manner. None of their actions made sense. I can suspend my belief for fantastical and supernatural stories. That’s the point of them. But this just went too far.

My Rating: 2/5

Purchase books, toys, tech, & more.
