My Opinion:
Horror fans, this is definitely for you. It had me looking over my shoulder when I was reading at home alone at night. It's that scary!
It's also very , and I mean, very graphic. In the same style as Stephen King, this author does not hold anything back from the imagination. Twisted, dark and gruesome are some of my favorite traits when reading this genre, I'd be disappointed if they weren't there, and this had it all!
Such intricate storytelling goes in this book. One minute you absolutely know everything that is going on.... or so you think... and then you're like, "WHOA!". You go on this trip with the writer and can't stop yourself following, even though it's like being the person in the horror movie that goes looking for the source of the noise instead of running. It's such good writing that you get immersed into something you already know isn't reality, but you lose sight if it still somehow the longer you read on.
Obviously I enjoyed the book. No, I loved it!!! So, enough said. If you like graphic horror or thriller, read it! 


5/5

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
