it was amazing
bookshelves: adapted-to-screen, horror
Read from October 25 to 27, 2011

Oh poor reader do take care as the master of shock and terror has yet again served up a dish of vulgarity, brutality and kindness!
Family how wonderful it is, mum and dad brother and sister living as a happy family but it all goes completely out the window when Ketchum is writing!
He opens the plot up with the Woman and a woman in the truest sense she is, but also brutally too in-touch with wilderness and it’s savagery.

A hunter stumbles across a prey and brings it home and oh boy that’s the best decision he made otherwise we would not have such a shocking story to read.
He brought us Girl next door another shocker and does not fail in this novel, there are disturbing scenes of rape and torture so beware.
You will find yourself saying o.m.g many times as the cruelness of these characters unfold in the story, a story that does not let up in momentum and totally gets your attention.
The real gem is the way the story unfolds with some hidden secrets. I will not give anything away as that is what really made this a page turning read for me, being in the dark on information. We are an evil species us humans. I wonder at who you will be rooting for in this story that does show the brutality of people.
This is a must read and I am sure the movie is going to be a memorable one.
There is now Video interviews to watch on my webpage here he is a nice guy even though he is called the scariest guy in horror.
