I read this in book format.
I was approached by book publishers Dead Good to promote their Summer promotion. I was sent three books that they believed readers would love for Summer. Whether it be read in the garden, on the beach or by the pool, these books are bound to pack a punch.
I began and finished this in one day. In A Dark, Dark Wood is incredible and I love the cover very much. So simple but the huge font makes your eyes draw to it instantly.
In A Dark, Dark Wood is a story told through the main character of Nora. She had a best friend, once. A best friend that she hasn’t seen for ten years. She receives an email invite to this best friend’s hen party. A hen party that is in the middle of the forest. Completely secluded from everyone, even phone signal struggles to be found there. Something goes wrong, someone is hurt, secrets and lies are hanging around, waiting to be revealed.
This book was just stunning. I was hooked. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it, even in the shower. When I needed to do other things, I did them one handed, the book in the other. I needed to complete it and I was determined to complete it. I needed to know everything, I needed to find out answers. Were my theories correct? Was I figuring the literary enigma in front of me? The answer was no. Boy, was I wrong with my theories.
It was just so good. I can’t tell you how good it was, you’ll just have to believe and trust me and read it for yourself.
You’ll be impressed, you’ll be very impressed.
I give this book a strong 4.5 out of 5 stars.
