  There is something eerie about this village -- this hole of silent, maddened people.
  
  In 1922 my Papa told me of a faceless entity that lurks amongst us in our isolated slice of Russia. The locals have kept this horror alive for a century, though the only ones who claim to have seen the Folveshch have succumbed to a life of sightless silence. 
  
  My name is Stefan Alyovich and the people around me are changing. They slip into worsening madness every winter, and I ask myself: how much longer before I'm the only sane one left?
  
  ... The only one left alone with the Folveshch.

Love this last paragraph of this chapter. This easily makes me motivated to read chapter two.

First line is so good and this is the perfect time to read this book for the first time.
Rereading and I'm not ready for more of the scares, where's my mother's butcher knife?

I’m wondering what the Folveshch looks like. Can’t wait to read chapter two of this book.
