5/5 Terrified Stars
OMG. This. Book.
It’s part Texas Chainsaw Massacre, partly a game of “six degrees of separation.”
I don’t want to say too much because this is the type of book that is better the less you know going into it. But prepare for a book that reads like a horror movie that you just can’t look away from. The characters depicted in the “Past” and “Present” sections are all interconnected, and unraveling the mystery is pat of the fun.
The central mystery is the classic horror genre conundrum: Who will survive? How? And what will it cost them? There’s several times in the book that the characters are faced with basic questions of humanity and which way to “turn,” both figuratively and literally. I loved that it made me think about what I would do if it were me. It really makes you think about how a split second decision can change your life.
If you didn’t get it from my Texas Chainsaw reference, this book has plenty of gore, so it’s not for those with weak stomachs. But if you’re a horror story person, you have to check this book out.
I for one am still a little scared to drive down unknown country lanes.
