Paula Kalin Nice review, Holly!


message 9: by Robin (new)

Robin Great review, Holly. Sorry to hear that this wasn't all it was cracked up to be. That sexy title and cover! I am a huge fan of Bird Box, but truth be told, after I read Malerman's Mad Black Wheel and then the mixed reviews for Unbury Carol and now this one, I'm less inclined to pick up one of his books.

message 11: by Zoeytron (new)

Zoeytron I agree with your assessment. Great premise, but the story itself stayed tepid for me. Nicely reviewed, Holly.

Michelle Awesome review, Holly! This probably would have been my review had I not read Bird Box. That was so terrifying and full of suspense that I was expecting the same out of this one. I was so disappointed.

I've only seen the film Bird Box, but still where was the suspense??

I thought the movie Bird Box was great, but it didn't have the suspense the book had partly because in the book - we the reader - couldn't see the dangers either. So it felt more real. And I totally agree - the caliber of fear was not even close. I was hesitant to even read Inspection because I thought bad things were going to happen to the kids so it could keep the same vibe of horror - I'm very glad in one respect it wasn't like that because I have no interest in reading bad things happen to kids, but at least it would have been in the same vein then, you know?


message 41: by Mackey (new)

Mackey I love your review Holly. I almost got this and now I'm so glad that I didn't. There was something about the color of the book that made me want to read it - LOL! I'm happy I resisted.

I agree! The title and cover are enticing! Too bad the book wasn't as thrilling though.


Mary Beth *Traveling Sister* Fab review Holly! I am so happy I didn't request this one. Hope your next one is Awesome.

Not exactly! They are just named after abc letters. Hope you like it more.


message 47: by Gerhard (new)

Gerhard I read 'Unbury Carol' after 'Bird Box'. That was a weird kind of noir-fantasy-horror Western. I think the key to Malerman is he enjoys genre mashups, and confounding reader expectations. Looking forward to reading this one ... and being non-plussed, probably. Hopefully in a good way.

I've not read those books, but this was strange to me. I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
