A group of people camping on an island (which they believe to be uninhabited) fall victim to a mad scientist, his Igor-type henchman and a number of mutant cannibals (yeah, right). The story basically consists of them getting picked off one by one, by stabbing, shooting, roasting, torture, and being chewed on by the cannibals. There's enough screaming going on to be heard from outer space, and the author struggles manfully to find sufficient adjectives to describe the amount of excruciating, agonising, unbearable, unbelievable, insanity-inducing pain they all suffer prior to their demise.

It's kind of fun in a daft way, even though the plot is slightly less credible than the existence of Santa Claus, but the author should learn that less is more when it comes to horror; too much torture and pain and death tends to blunt the senses. By the end, I couldn't care less who was doing what to whom, provided they all just shut up and got on with it.

Ever since I read Jack Kilborn's debut novel 'Afraid' I have been eagerly awaiting a follow up.
It seemed that Trapped was never going to get published as planned so I was delighted to find it available as an e-book (AND the follow on from that, 'Endurance' which I shall also review).

I can only say the wait was worth it! Kilborn writes the most breathlessly exciting and, yes, extremely nasty, books I have ever read. I defy anyone, after the first few chapters, to put one of them down! He uses a very clever 'cliffhanger' device at the end of most chapters that just keeps the pages turning well into the wee hours!

With Trapped - a very loose sequel/prequel to 'Afraid' - we are presented with a very simple premise of a group of 'difficult' teens who've been taken away to a remote island for a survival weekend by their counsellors/guardians, Sara and Martin.

After Martin tells a scary campfire story about a hidden civil war prison and a history involving cannibalistic Confederate soldiers he abruptly goes missing in the woods.

Thinking it's a prank, no one is too concerned. But when Martin fails to return and the kids split up to go looking for him, then the horror really begins and their 'survival' weekend takes on a very literal meaning...

From this point Kilborn launches us on a horrific roller coaster ride encompassing cannibals, traps, mad scientists, torture, page turning suspense and two VERY scary villains in the guises of 'Subject 33' and the towering, terrifying, sharp toothed 'Lester'. Oh, and a LOT of gore!

It may sound very far fetched but Kilborn's great skill is in making this crazy stuff seem very believable.

I don't like giving up on a book, it kept me reading and turing those pages, purely to get to the end!! I have just about managed to stick this one out!

I thought the plot was far fetched, far too much silly gore - I don't mind gore but too much just turned off my interest!

The way the characters spoke irritated me.

I was just glad to finish it!!

I thought the idea of two novels in one was interesting and I thought I'd enjoy reading the two versions. I've not bothered!

What I like about this author is that whilst his stories are extremely far-fetched, he captivates you with his writing, and you can actually believe you're right there with the characters. I liked the style of this book. Rather than tell the story of each character before any action happens, he breaks up the action with a little background of each one. That sometimes came as a much needed breather from the violence and gore.

I really found myself cringing at a lot of parts here, and I got so immersed. Almost every scene was left with a cliff-hanger before cutting to another character's situation, and I really wanted to know what was going to happen.

Great escapism, and a great read! I haven't read the original version yet, I'll read something else before I do that so as not to get too familiar with it.

I have read a number of books which were classed as "Horror", but were disappointing. This book definitely doesn't fall into this category, and is definitely not for the faint hearted. Well done to the author.

Wow this book is definately gory. When I started it I didn't think I would enjoy it but I thought wrong. The characters are brilliant and there are a couple of surprises which I didn't expect. I actually read both copies of the book and the first one is definately the best. I will be buying more books from this author and I strongly recommend this book to others. You won't be disappointed.

I have to admit that I struggled to get into this book. Some of the characters were so annoying and I didn't warm to them at first. But I decided to persevere and I'm glad I did. The characters that I struggled with either got more appealing or met with a nasty end. I really enjoyed the story, full of twists and turns and some very nasty moments. As an added bonus the author has included the original draft of the story which was turned down by the editors as being too extreme. Having enjoyed the toned down version so much I had to read the first draft to see which I preferred. I have to say that I preferred the first draft especially the ending. Also included are some sneak peeks of other Jack Kilborn books which I will definitely be buying soon. I got this book for free so I'm well pleased but at a couple of quid it's more than worth it.
