Thank you to the publishers for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
A gripping and tense psychological thriller, The Cabin In The Woods is an easy-to-read story full of mystery.
In the beginning, you don’t know much about what’s going on so the format works really well to keep you intrigued. You don’t know why Rose is hiding, who she is hiding from, or whether she is even a character that we can put our trust in.
The story is then told over two timelines, the past and the present, exploring Rose’s upbringing and her relationship with her husband Ryan alongside her present situation, as it all builds up to the reason why she’s hiding in the woods at all.
I loved the directions that the book takes. It’s unique and clever and it certainly kept me on my toes. However, I was hoping for more of an atmosphere in the cabin. Maybe if the finale took place here and we got a chance to feel a sense of fear from this setting and its isolated location, I would have loved it even more, since that’s what I was looking forward to most with the title and tagline.
Still, I was really impressed with this one and it’s a fast-paced thriller that’s easy to enjoy. Alderson is definitely an author I want to read more by!
