goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best horror 2018 what will happenwhat the fuck was thathere s the thing ever since paul tremblay wrote A Head Full of Ghosts and slipped in a character named karen brissette whose voice sounded an awful lot like the inside of my own ghostless head i ve been pestering him with am i gonna be in the next book huh huh huh am i but i am so glad to not be in this one because YEESHi don t even know how to review it it s pretty telling that the synopsis on here and the back cover copy of the ARC is basically here are many specific details about what happens in the very very beginning including pull uotes which is never done followed by a vague mini paragraph about the rest of the book enjoy because going any further into trying to describe the plot will a make the reviewer sound insane and b ruin the thrill of discovery for the reader i think the whole point of this book is to make the reader suirm not with excess gore or violence or anything like that but with anticipation it s a held breath kind of book where you need to know how it s going to resolve than anything but you must resist flipping ahead cheater it s page after page of stubborn standoff and escalating tension and raising of stakes and uestioning what s real and what s not and how does something like this end for anyone involved it will get under your skin i promise you thatthe plot isn t the draw because it s less traditional plot than it is setting a scenario in motion and letting the characters bounce off its walls the characters are part of the draw the happily vacationing family at the center of the situation are eric and andrew and their seven year old daughter wen whom they adopted from china as a baby and they are as loving and enviable a family as you could possibly want if you were looking to illustrate the terrible things happening to good people angle which is precisely the goal herein the calm before the storm when andrew and eric are just being a goofy couple on the back porch i remember reading that scene and thinking how well and naturally they were written that their banter read like actual long term couple banter with years of relationship history bubbling through subtextually so it was even effective once things started happening because relatable characters being put in extraordinary circumstances naturally makes the reader uestion themselves what would they do in eric and andrew s place me i would freak the fuck out period like sothis one plays it smart by never straying far from the realistic in terms of character s responses it sticks pretty close to the realm of ordinary parental bravery not liam neeson badassery which although wonderfully entertaining is only an option for people with a very particular set of skills eric and andrew do not have these skills but they do their best wen is also a great character i don t usually love kid characters but she s written to be appealing and smart and occasionally bossy as seven year old girls are and seeing her struggle to process what is even going on and how to react contributes some excellent dramaMaybe she should run like Daddy Andrew said sprint through the room dodge the turned over furniture like a mouse through high grass then onto the deck and outside and away She can run fast Her dads tell her that she is fast so fast all the time And they tell her she is shifty She knows their races are fixed for her to win but Wen outlasting the catchers in their catch me if you can games until Eric andor Andrew are bent over hands on knees gasping for air is legitimate She is shifty Wen loves this word It means hard to catch It means even better than fast it s a smart fastShe knows she d make it out of the cabin without getting caught if she was to run but where would she run to She doesn t want to accidentally get lost on the dirt roads that fork and branch away leading to nowhere or to worse places than here and what if she has to ditch the road for the thick woods surrounding the cabin for miles and miles Her dads were explicit in saying she could not go into these woods by herself under any circumstances because they might never find her againand that right there is the draw so than plot or characters is mood the tension and the shivery feeling that never goes away the whole time you re reading this what is the right choice when every choice is horrible you can prepare for a lot of eventualities as a parent from commonplace to very unlikely but this one no one s ever written a pamphlet to get you through this situation the comparison to In a Dark Dark Wood is a bit of a stretch i mean i guess they re both kind of bottle episodes so there s a claustrophobic facet at play except there s little to no tension in ddw and i couldn t even locate a whiff of the horror or suspense it advertised and i m not trying to be a jerk about that book just because she s never written me into one of her novels it was okay it was just a bit predictable and forgettable while this one is nothing but unpredictable horror and suspenseit s actually much much like 10 Cloverfield Lane which is not a book at all but it definitely explores the same general themes and conflict where a stranger has a story too outrageous to be true but oh man what if it is and trust doubt and self preservation shift and rattle and sustain an intense ambiguity for both characters and readerviewer for the whole damn ride can t say but this one s a nailbiteri got lost on my way to instagramthis was in my pagehabit horror box for june which is sad since i have already read and reviewed it but at least i got some fun notes from paul tremblay s brain and some adorable booky stickers and a gimble for when my arms need to be amputatedcome to my blog
