"When Stephanie moves to the notoriously cheap Perry Bar neighborhood of Birmingham, she's just happy to find an affordable room for rent that's large enough not to deserve her previous room's nickname, "the cell." The eccentric -- albeit slightly overly-friendly -- landlord seems nice and welcoming enough, the ceilings are high, and all of the other tenants are also girls. Things aren't great, but they're stable. Or at least that's what she tells herself when she impulsively hands over enough money to cover the first month's rent and decides to give it a go. But soon after she becomes uneasy about her rash decision. She hears things in the night. Feels them. Things...or people...who aren't there in the light. Who couldn't be there, because after-all, her door is locked every night, and the key is still in place in the morning. Concern soon turns to terror when the voices she hears and presence she feels each night become hostile. It's clear that something very bad has happened in this house. And something even worse is happening now. Stephanie has to find a way out, before whatever's going on in the house finds her first. Adam Nevill's No One Gets Out Alive will chill you straight through to the core -- a cold, merciless, fear-inducing nightmare to the last page. A word of caution, don't read this one in the dark"--… (mer)

This would have been a 4 star review if the first half of the book hadn't driven me crazy with frustration. From midlife I can look back on my green youth and honestly say that I was never as naive or in denial as the main character in NOGOA and watching her make one stupid mistake after another was maddening.

The second half of the novel was quite fast paced and tied up all the loose ends. The BEST PART is that this actually does turn out to be a story of the supernatural if you can get through all the horrific human behavior. I generally avoid themes of rape and human trafficking so this was a tough read for me. As a fan of horror involving ancient pagan deities the book was quite satisfying. As a pagan I just have to add that any goddess who demands virgin girl sacrifices is a very minor deity and a pathetic loser; powerful goddesses accept only adult males in their prime who volunteer themselves for the role.............just sayin'....................

I became rather frustrated at the start of the story as the main character...Stephanie... comes onto the scene with her life in a shambles with nothing to lose. Her self-worth is so drained...she can't imagine extricating herself from the ugly situation she lands in. A few pages of this and you find yourself the victim of a real downer. But then you realize that these feelings just go to demonstrate the talent of this author. The switching gears makes the story exhilarating especially toward the second half of the book. It's a good read. Just stick with it. ( )

After having read, House of Small Shadows by this author, I wanted to pick up this book many times on my to be read pile. I finally got the time to pick up this book. I was really looking forward to being scared. After a third of the way into the story it was evident to me that this was not going to be the case with this book. The presence of the spirits were not frightening at all. Although in the beginning the things that Stephanie experienced where a little freaky. Yet as the story went on I found the real humans more scary than the spirits.

The storyline is what did it for me. Unlike House of Small Shadows which had a great storyline and characters I actually liked, this book had characters that I hated and after a while I was over the events that were taking place in the residence that Stephanie was residing at. Yet, I kept reading this book until the end as I held out strong hope that it would get better and scarier. The last 10 pages of the book were actually interesting and creepy. ( )

[No One Gets Out Alive] by Adam Nevill
5★’s

From The Book:
Darkness lives within ...Cash-strapped, working for agencies and living in shared accommodation, Stephanie Booth feels she can fall no further. So when she takes a new room at the right price, she believes her luck has finally turned. But 82 Edgware Road is not what it appears to be. It's not only the eerie atmosphere of the vast, neglected house, or the disturbing attitude of her new landlord, Knacker McGuire, that makes her uneasy - it's the whispers behind the fireplace, the scratching beneath floors, the footsteps in the dark, and the young women weeping in neighboring rooms. And when Knacker's cousin Fergal arrives, the danger goes vertical. But this is merely a beginning, a gateway to horrors beyond Stephanie's worst nightmares. And in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?

My Thoughts:
Creepy… scary… super creepy… super scary...who could ask for more? She should have listened to the saying ‘If it looks to good to be true it probably is’ Her landlord Knacker McGuire and his dilapidated house give her the creeps. During the day she thinks she sees girls who turn out not to be there, and at night she is kept awake by weeping, whispers and footsteps. Just when Steph thinks that things can’t get any worse Knacker’s cousin Fergal arrives and soon Steph realizes that she will have to get out of the house at any cost, before she becomes trapped there too.

The bad thing about this book is it is a hefty tomb at over 600 pages but I never felt that it was a challenge; except to hold it I found that I was hooked from the time I red the fly-leaf until the brilliantly done ending. What characters we met! Knacker and Fergal are totally sinister giving the whole story a very overwhelming sense of foreboding from the start…Steph’s first night she hears scratching under the bed. Who has not in the dark of night put off looking under the bed until good daylight? You know something bad is going to happen, but the plot unfolds in such a way to make your dread build and build, and even when you think it’s all over at last…it’s not. This is definitely one of the best books of his I have read. To quote another reviewer “A menacing novel that gets under your skin and stays there.” ( )

The main character is Stephanie, who is so broke and alone in the world that she has to rent a room in an incredibly creepy house. How broke is she? You will find out over the course of two hundred pages as she endlessly counts her money and rehashes her finances only to end up back at the house every night due to the lack of money to go anywhere else. After it becomes clear that Stephanie is never going to be able to quit the house the action picks up. This book had some genuinely creepy moments. I was thoroughly entertained by the supernatural aspects of the book but could have done with a little less of Stephanie's financial regurgitation. Still I was intrigued enough to want to check out more by this author. ( )
