it was amazing

Josh Malerman has one of the most creative imaginations working in horror fiction today. He proved that with his debut novel, BIRD BOX, and he proves it again with BLACK MAD WHEEL. The concept of a mysterious sound in the Namib desert that can kill you, among other things, is thoroughly original. I found the characters realistic and compelling, Philip and Ellen in particular. As with BIRD BOX, Malerman's sparse writing style takes some getting used to, but I never felt lost or anything but immersed in the world of the novel. BLACK MAD WHEEL is a page-turner, and Malerman is quickly becoming a new favorite author.
