I want to say that reading this book is akin to watching a horror movie, but my actual knowledge of horror movies is severely limited because they scare the bejeebers out of me.
So you tell me.
If a book…
-Says, per the book blurb, that ” It involves a strong element of suspense…” (Or translated into layman’s speak- your elevated vitals will have you feeling like you just ran a marathon while reading this book).
-Has a main character and sidekicks that have you yelling at them “What are you doing?!? WHY? Why would you do that… no… what?!! Have you no sense of self-preservation!?”
-And was a non-stop page turner despite the fact that you wished for more character development in some cases and a bit better plot flow in others.
Does all that make it like a horror film?
I think it may be the next blockbuster.
It’ll probably be great.
I’m never watching it.
Would I recommend it? It was scary and icky and Dear Lord had I read this as a kid I would never have gone into the woods at night again – but wow was it a page turner. I think if horror is your thing this could be the book for you. But if you, like me, would rather get off the couch and actually run to elevate your vitals, you might want to take a pass on this one.
