"In a Dark, Dark Wood" by Ruth Ware [REVIEW]
Based on the title, In The Dark Dark Wood and the great eerie book cover, I was hoping for creepiness and devilment in the snowy outdoors, but instead received a fair to middling somewhat predictable crime-myste. Based on the title, In The Dark Dark Wood and the great eerie book cover, I was hoping for creepiness and devilment in the snowy outdoors, but instead received a fair to middling somewhat predictable crime-mystery that nonetheless kept me reading into the early morning hours. While the character's actions and conversations seemed a bit juvenile for their age, still a solid 3 Star entertaining debut read from an author I would definitely try again.
In a Dark, Dark Wood
The best of them capture the essence of what has gone before and give a sense of completion. Fictional endings help us to make sense of the ways we try to make sense of our lives. The pressure to deliver is immense: questions must be answered, ambiguities resolved, loose ends tied up, judgments passed. In crime fiction there is arguably a bigger onus on the writer. Psychological thrillers lure readers in with the promise of a mystery and a revelation. Even recent bestsellers such as Before I Go to Sleep and Gone Girl left many disappointed that the twists and revelations did not live up to earlier promise.
Sometimes the only thing to fear…is yourself. Leonora Lee to some, Nora to others is a reclusive writer, but when an old friend unexpectedly invites her to a weekend away in an eerie glass house, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But a haunting realization creeps in to the party: they are not alone in the woods.
