One of the most enjoyably terrifying books I have ever read,
This review is from: The Well (Paperback)It's an unusual experience to read a book written by someone that one actually knows - there is an undercurrent of determination to enjoy it in appreciation of their hard work. Luckily I am unable to anything but honest so this review is entirely unbiased!
Before I cracked the spine of this book I hesitated for a few seconds, worried that I wouldn't like it because I'm not particularly drawn to the horror genre. I am proud and relieved however to say that by the end of the fourth page I was already Tweeting Peter to assure him how much I loved it. I was hooked from the very beginning by this gripping, chilling book and was driven schizophrenic as a result of not wanting to put it down and not wanting it to end.
Peter's characters are gritty and intricately created but leave plenty of room for the reader to engage with them, his plot is absolutely terrifying and suspensful and I adored the way the story is told in triplicate from the viewpoint of different characters (with wonderfully conflicting personalities!) and then brought together in the end.
Even if, like me, you don't usually read horror stories give this a try. It's absolutely fantastic.
