I decided to read something scary in honor to Halloween.
The Cabin at the End of the World was a creepy, intelligent, horror-thriller perfect for my October pick of the month.
I usually provide a link to the synopsis because I hate being redundant and figure you already know what the book is about, you are only looking for opinions on whether or not to read this book. But, I’m not sure how to write a review without giving anything away. Trust me, you do not want to read any spoilers but here is a quick synopsis.
A home invasion novel with apocalyptic overtones. Andrew and Eric, and their adopted Chinese daughter, Wen, are trapped inside their cabin, surrounded by four individuals who may or may not be totally insane.
“They share another long look. This one is reserved for ill-fated observers in the moments before impending, inescapable calamity, whether it be natural disaster or violent failure of humanity; a look of resigned melancholy and awe, unblinking in the face of a revealed, horrific, sacred truth. And they realize again, in this darkest hour of the darkest day, they remain alone, fundamentally alone.”
― Paul Tremblay, The Cabin at the End of the World
The ending left me with intense feelings and lots to ponder about long after I finished reading.
A suspenseful horror, thrilling ride. A must read.
