Recensioner

Nevill has been among my favourite authors from my first read of his books. My favourite out of those I’ve read so far remains No One Gets Out Alive. This newest novel may well be a close second, although trying to choose the best of this author’s work is difficult. In this (possible) alien invasion, supernatural horror, there’s so much to appreciate. The author well uses every sentence, creates a solid plot, and introduces a protagonist who is an average man thrown into exceptional circumstances. One of the book’s strengths is this character’s reactions. Even when he’s frozen in indecision, making me scream, the reaction is appropriate, genuine, and realistic. Real people aren’t superheroes. When hurt, people writhe in pain, unable to always miraculously drag themselves to their feet. The bad guy reminded me of several people I’ve stumbled across and was an excellent love-to-hate antagonist. The world-building also performs well, creating a steady creeping atmosphere and breakdown of our world. Although the horrors unfolding take place on Earth, they feel terribly genuine. The question of what’s bleeding through into our existence, extraterrestrial, inter-dimensional, denizens of hell… you’ll be wondering about and believing in them all, gazing at the sky and hoping it never turns red.… (mer)

Obviously inspired by The Day of the Triffids, War of the Worlds and an element of the Quiet Place; this should have been perfect fare for me. Yet I was somewhat disappointed, despite being a lover of post-apoc/dystopian fiction and I'm trying to ascertain why. It's very adjective heavy - always a criticism of the authors books in my view - and whilst there are only so many ways of describing an ominous red sky, it was almost getting to mirror the worst bits of Lovecraftian excess in places. Thankfully nothing eldritch was mentioned though.... Characterization was good but something for me, just didn't gel and I can't really explain more without plot spoilers. For all the end of days horror described and it really is an end of days horror situation, I didn't get the overwhelming feeling of dread that Mr Nevill usually does so excellently and in places without surpass. Kept my attention but felt the whole story was too one directional somehow and dragged in places, despite the events all happening at a frantic pace. A 3.75 stars job.… (mer)

There was a bit of mix I could have done without and info in the last few pages that could have been wonderfully added in the meat of the story to really make it eerie and very interesting.

I haven't read a book before by Adam Neville so picked this one as its folk horror and that is something I do enjoy. This story follows a family who move into a house and have neighbours from hell.

I have managed to read about 30% of this book and unfortunately have for the time bring had to DNF. I was just not getting on with it all. There becomes a slight fantasy element to it and that is just not my thing. I like horror and all things supernatural and spooky but just don't do fantasy.

Reading some other reviews I have felt that I am not going to like this book which is a shame as I really wanted to. I would give Adam Neville another go in the future or even may decide to try again with this one. The book deserves more than one star but that is my own rating for a DNF.
