review 1: the most disappointing book I have ever read. Has a good cover, good title, and I reckon a mostly good plot. Needs a more explained ending. The character development is shit. The main character, Cheyenne, is totally unrealistic in her observations. I get that when she realises the man she loves is crazy she flits between love and hate and loving his brother, it could be done but the way it is written shows an inexperienced writer. I am Surprised this book is published, as a draft it has so much potential and I can see it being made into a movie - its just gone astray in the editing, there needs to be less stupid immature air headed girl crap, and more character development of teo, Marcus, and a more solid realistic show of Cheyenne struggling with an unhealthy obsession wi... moreth her first love... She shouldnt so blatently fall for Marc, and finally, an explanation of wtf Jonas is all about, and explaining teo and his mental illness. And how it all affected those that survived. Kind of think brilliant first half of the book writing process, but god almighty royally screwed up the actual writing part... Who edited this??? Mary gray you have done well with your ideas but no one has refined your work! Pity.
review 2: The book is definitely creepy and gut wrenching. Once it starts, it gets to be a little predictable. The title is also somewhat misleading, as I didn't find very many doll or asylum references in the story. While it is a fabulous title, and I understand Gray is proud of it, I'm not sure it fits the book. That being said, the tie to classic literature is great. The development of the sociopath that is Hades (Tea) left me wanting more. Marcus really served as the only way to learn about Hades, a man Cheyenne has been in love with for a while, but it would have been more fulfilling to understand his character more through his own words, rather than actions. It is obvious that he was a very calculated man, but I think the author struggled with how to relay that characteristic, without spelling it out. less

Hmm..well...this book was not what I thought it was going to be. Review to come.
I NEVER give up on books, but I just couldn't get past the first fifty pages.
incredibly silly and dull and unimaginative
