The Housemates: A Novel of Extreme Terror by Iain Rob Wright
4.0 out of 5 stars Very hard to put down, 2 Jan 2014
I've heard a lot about Iain Rob Wright's books and this was the one that most caught my eye so I was very pleased to discover that it met my expectations.
Think Saw meets Big Brother with plenty of gore and an extremely compulsive narrative. I'm sure you'll find yourself saying, 'Just one more chapter', just like I did.

This was a cool collection with some great stories in.
Crawlspace and Mole People were my favourites, both creepy as hell and very hard to put down.

Whatever Possessed You, Dark Curtains and Black Door were also cracking reads, leaving you unsure as where they're going to end up.
All in all a great collection that I would recommend to others.

I'd rate them as follows:
'Taken' - A strange tale with a nice twist at the end. 4/5
'Gone' - A haunting tale that I found very subtle and moving. Some nice clues as to the outcome, but by the time it clicks, you've already missed a… Read more
