So I told myself that I was going to wait until closer to release day to read this one, but I could not wait!
Thanks to William Morrow for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review
THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD – Paul Tremblay (Releasing June 26th, 2018)
I read and enjoyed his other two books – HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and DISAPPEARANCE AT DEVIL’S ROCK – so naturally I was looking forward to his third novel. When the King gives it a good review, you gotta pick it up!
Check back later for the #allthebookreviews thoughts on this one 🙂
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
I had heard nothing but great things going into THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD, and I was anxious to get started. Holy crap, guys. The first chapter alone pulls you in instantly and the suspense created in the last couple pages of chapter one was insane. Literally felt my heart racing as the chapter continued and that didn’t quit for the rest of the book.
We are introduced to Wen, she’s almost 8 years old, and she’s playing her front yard trying to collect grasshoppers. The sweetness ends about there and then the tone completely changes. Like I already mentioned, the end of this first chapter the suspense and ominous tone takes over.
The emotions and themes throughout this book are insane. We come across loyalty, sacrifice, the strength of your beliefs, and the importance and love of your family. Wen and her fathers, Eric and Andrew, were brought to life in this novel – you’ll definitely fall in love with this little girl. Tremblay does an incredible job bringing you through an array of reactions and plenty of WHAT THE HELL moments. I know for a fact I said that out loud a couple of times.
I don’t want to give away much because this is one you need to fully experience. If you’re a horror fan or already love Tremblay’s work, then this is a no-brainer. I can see this being a buzzed about book this summer!
Have you read any of Paul Tremblay’s work? Which is your favorite or most anticipated?
