I gave it a star and a half, because the language was beautiful. I had expected it to be twisty, but other than the language, I I found this really impossible to track, and that led me to bail on it, and I did not finish the book.
I checked this out from the library on the strength of a review on Lithub by Jac Jemc. Jemc said, in Books to Warp Your Sense of Reality;
"Hell is the story of not one but three haunted houses, all existing in the same space and time. As a reader you must decide, from sentence to sentence which house it is you’re reading about. Maybe it’s all three, but the sentence means something different depending on the space you’re projecting it onto. It’s the most disorienting book I’ve read, and, with each subsequent reading, I never feel myself on firmer ground. A bold hall of mirrors that has you bumping into yourself until the end."
I might try wading into this again, but it really was too disorienting for me to want to persevere to the end.
