Read from November 27 to 29, 2011

This was like watching SAW; pretty gruesome torture scenes, although the author doesn't go into many gory details. However, there is plenty of shocking stuff through-out the book. I don't love that kind of stuff, but it's like watching a train wreck; I just had to keep turning the pages because the story was so good! I really cared about the characters and was rooting for the small group of people (and scene-stealing Woof) fighting the evil that had come to their town. Nothing supernatural going on here, just a horrifying thriller. I had to suspend belief when it came to how much physical and psychological damage the heroes and heroine could take and keep on running and fighting. In spite of that, I really enjoyed this fast-paced novel.

Lynne Lowe I have never watched the "Saw" movies, but if I could finish "Afraid", those movies are probably a piece of cake.
