Hoarder by Patti Larsen is not the "paranormal" horror story I was expecting. While the doll involved does bring a touch of the supernatural, this story is more a sad drama exposing the hidden side of hoarding. Even though it is a work of fiction, I found myself captivated by the realistic downfall of Jane. The author put so much detail into Jane's mental breakdown, the doll wasn't even necessary to keep me captivated. Larsen is a natural storyteller.
