Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It’s a very creepy moment when we realize the narrator is the Ciguapa.

Con: : It’s very long and dull. The caricatures of bad men are tedious, the story seems to glorify the murder of a child just because he’s male, and it’s not clear what actually happens at the end.
