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.
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.Read more ›
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!
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.
