Cover Page: I LOVE it! You can see how a girl is walking on a wooden log in a forest with blood dripping down his leg. It is really a great choice.
Plot: The book revolves around many characters, not just one. The pace was fast yet gripping. It had all the following genres,
- Denial. The only thing that keeps most of us from losing our sanity.
- Sudden deaths are like sudden Zombie attacks, some people get a grip on their emotions and deal with everything in an organized way, but some people, the rare ones, lose it and start behaving like jerks.
- She found the darkness and the dank forest smell comforting. More comforting than the warm house and the cold parents she had left behind.
- It wasn’t the wild animals that scared her, but the civilised ones.
I liked this book very much. This might be the first mystery, thriller novel that I was not able to put down. The scene setting was amazing.
I specially loved those journal entries. They were filled with craziness. There was every piece of information provided which would need a reader to follow-up with the book.
There was only one thing I didn’t get was, the phone conversations. She had only written the conversation said by the character whose point of view was written. We never get to know the other way around, just guess which was pretty confusing at times.
This book has some brutal scenes that even made me gag at sometimes. You cannot predict what is going to happen, what you can do is read and read. I was done with the first half and had my nail nearly chipped due to severe biting while reading. My mind was all over the place.
Other than that, I am already in love with this book and would recommend it to every mystery lover and non lover. I’m a non-lover and look how much I praised this book. :p
