 "A tremendous book―thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay's personal best. It's that good."  -- Stephen King The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King's Misery, Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum's cult hit The Girl Next Door. Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what's going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: "Your dads won't want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world." Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay. "Read Paul Tremblay's new novel, The Cabin at the End of the World, and you might not sleep for a week. Longer. It will shape your nightmares for months - that's pretty much guaranteed." -- NPR "Gripping, horrifying, and mesmerizing." -- GQ "A tour-de-force of psychological and religious horror." -- BN.com "A blinding tale of survival and sacrifice." -- Kirkus Reviews "Tremblay has a real winner here." -- Tor.com… (plus d'informations)

Underbar bok. Man kastas direkt in i den fruktansvärda handlingen och det bara fortsätter. Det är spännande/otäckt i flera lager utan att bli sliskigt och det är svårt att lägga den ifrån sig. Här har jag fått mig en ny favoritförfattare. ( )

This is the first novel I've read by Paul Tremblay.

It just didn't work for me. I chose this novel because it sounded dark and suspenseful. Which , I suppose it was. I initially loved the family in this book and I was rooting for them at the beginning, and I did feel the suspense at first when they were being kept in the cabin. However, the four characters that showed up just seemed like comical characters to me and I couldn't take them seriously, which ruined the suspense. If this book had been written as a dark comedy I think I would have enjoyed it more.

This book is written in present tense (which isn't my preference, but I'll try it occasionally). There's also a chapter near the end which is strangely written in first person, from two collective points of view, which is just confusing and I'm not sure why the author thought this was necessary. At this point though, I was just reading to get to the end: the story was over-written and repetitive, with lots of backstory which was just filler.

After this I'll be reluctant to read other works by this author. ( )

It starts off scary but ends very oddly. ( )

Then back in the ground / We look at our hands / And wonder aloud / Could anyone choose to die / In the end everybody wins / In the end everybody wins --Future of the Left, "The Hope That House Built"

Meanwhile, planes drop from the sky / People disappear and bullets fly... Wouldn't be surprised if they have their way / (Tastes just like chicken they say.) --Clutch, "Animal Farm"

...because when the blanket of death came for us we kicked it off and were left naked and shivering in the world. --Nadia Bulkin, "Seven Minutes in Heaven," She Said Destory
