I thought I wouldn’t enjoy this much, but I grabbed it while it was free and thought I’d nothing to lose. How wrong I was! I’ve lost several hours of sleep in the last few nights by staying awake way too late, unable to put it down! There’s definitely a feel of Stephen King to this, mostly the compulsive ‘I-need-to-keep-reading-just-a-bit-longer-to-see-what-happens’ aspect.
Most of the book happens around one isolated location with a small number of characters, which adds a claustrophobic intensity to the story that contributes to the suspense.
If you’re looking for a good distraction that’s overall pretty well written (and reasonably well edited, bar a few mistakes here and there) and engrossing, go for it!
