really liked it
Read in October, 2011

While Banquet for the Damned and Apartment 16 were compelling novels, they didn't entirely do it for me. Banquet felt a bit too fond of its traditional ghost story roots and Apartment 16 felt like it could have been a punchier, leaner work. However, with The Ritual Nevill has finally hit it out of the park. Both a grisly tale of survival in the oldest forest in Europe and a terrifying tale of the supernatural, The Ritual is a blistering page-turner that manages to build genuine dread and fear. You'll feel battered and bruised by the experience, but in a good way.
