I‘ve been meaning to read this for years! A working class guy comes into money in the 1960s so, like you do, he kidnaps a posh art student and holds her prisoner in his cellar. It was a lot deeper and more sinister than I expected; I cried at the end. 😟 This is a good book! #scarathlon #teamstoker

WOAH! This was a lot darker than I was expecting! Like the brain child of Stephen King & Wes Craven this is some warped, disturbing stuff! Amazing gothic, macabre illustrations that made my skin crawl. Fantastic! #scarathlon #teamstoker

In January 1937, a group of young men set out on an Artic expedition but the remote, uninhabited bay where they set up camp has a sinister past...! 😟
This was brilliant! A cracking ghost story that just sucked me in! (I was snowed in alone once when I lived in the mountains in Italy; by the 3rd day I felt painfully lonely. And I‘m not a people person!) #scarathlon #ScaryScavengerHunt #teamstoker

I love a good book vs the film comparison and in this case I‘d say the film is better although it is completely different. The author must have been fuming!!! 😬 #scarathlon #teamstoker

Mehso-so

Hmm, I loved the first half. The concept is so cool; reading about a zombie apocalypse like a history book. But then I got world weary, with no character to care about or root for and all the gun-ho craziness, it just all got too much for me. 🤷‍♀️ #scarathlon #ScaryScavengerHunt (with zombies in it) #teamstoker

eraderneely I‘m due for a reread, but when I read this 10 years ago I really enjoyed the metaphor of immigration politics and global crises. Not sure if it holds up to my mid-30s critique though! 7d
Caroline2 @eraderneely I know what you mean, I enjoyed that aspect. It was very clever. 👍 7d

TheReadingMermaid I hope he feels better today honey 🧟‍♀️ 2w
ravenlee If it‘s just recently, it could be related to changes in weather. If so, a humidifier could help. I used to put a little vaseline inside my nose with a q-tip (feels awful but keeps the nasal membranes moist) before bed. Saline spray can help too, if he‘s old enough to handle a nasal spray. I hope it goes away soon! 2w
Caroline2 @ravenlee it has been more recent! But he‘s had them in the past too. Thanks for the tips, I‘ll give them a go! 👍 2w

I loved this! I would recommend checking your expectations at the door; this isn‘t a dystopian novel. It‘s more Little Fires Everywhere than The Handmaid‘s Tale. But I found it fascinating! Interesting characters, loads of ethical issues raised (inequality, women‘s rights, race) but it never felt preachy! I was always just dying to know what happened next! 😲 👍
