Review

Compulsive reading (Marie-Claire)

Sarah Lotz has just written the perfect horror story. This will be undoubtedly one of the best horror stories published in 2014. (The Book Plank)

It's reminiscent of Stephen King's CARRIE and THE THREE comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast. (The Guardian)

Tiptoeing the tightrope between fantasy and horror (Daily Mail)

One of the finest, freakiest horror novels I've read. (Chuck Wendig)

The author's use of the oral-history format, with its shifting voices and points of view, is a stroke of genius: the reader is in a state of near-constant confusion at the beginning, which is slowly replaced by unease and then dread as the various commentators start to see the bigger picture. A very creepy, very effective novel. (David Pitt Booklist)

Book Description

The extraordinary, unforgettable new thriller for fans of The Shining Girls, The Passage and Lost.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A series of inexplicable plane crashes - each with a mysterious survivor. A well-written novel that uses a range of techniques to explore the mystery at the heart of the plot. On-line conversations, interviews, pieces of journalism and sections of books, all form the fabric of the novel.

However, there is a certain sense of padding, that the story is being turned into a novel that is really too long. The plot lacks a complete ending - although it looks as if a sequel is intended.

Disappointing because much of The Three is lively, clever and full of a slightly failed potential for being a much better book.

A clever method of collating a book - there's a book within the book which is made up of research into the events and using different sources. Personally I found the Japanese cyber-chat sections a bit boring but that may be more appealing to a younger reader. The overall premiss is good but I did feel it never really got going to fever pitch. It is quite a swipe at US religious preachers at times - almost a side purpose to the book. But enjoyable and a good ending.

My book queue was desperately low and went to Amazon's recommendations. This is written in an odd interview style. It's not the greatest sci-fi fantasy I've read, but not the worst either.

Good premise but very irritating as no real resolution or answers. Reading this novel just felt like a lot of hard work with no much payback. Not worth it.

Not as good as I'd hoped as each chapter jumps around from character to character so at times a confusing read.

I was sucked into reading this after seeing a review comparing it to Stephen King, but it's lacking something special and left me feeling disappointed
