ARC REVIEW: The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay


*No Major Spoilers*

**Thanks to William Marrow for letting me preview this novel early**

***Cabin at the End of the World will be hitting bookshelves on June 26, 2018***

One summer, Wen is catching grasshoppers in front of her fathers’ cabin. She’s enjoying herself; having fun. When a stranger named Leonard walks down the dirt driveway, things start to go haywire.

As Leonard is building a friendship with Wen, three more strangers arrive. Each carrying archaic, handmade weapons. Wen runs into the cabin to warn her parents, and their world is turned upside down forever.

I wanted to read this as soon as I read the description. Home invasion, oncoming apocalypse, how can you get any better?

This book is really good for the first half. The action of trying to escape from these crazy people and the “proof” of the coming apocalypse is very thrilling and mind-boggling. If you were in a cabin, and the only way you knew what was going on with the rest of the world was cable TV makes this a very interesting concept.

Now for the negatives. As soon as this climax happens, I instantly lost interest in how the rest of the story was going to go. I had to force myself to read the last half of the book. I wanted to like this book, honestly, but I didn’t like the way they handled the aftermath of the climax.

Overall, this book was okay. I would encourage you to read this book for yourself and make your own judgment. This is just my opinion on how the book was for me.

I would recommend this for lovers of apocalyptic books, home-invasions, action, and thrillers.

I am just a 20 something trying to figure out how to survive in this crazy world. I want to share my love of reading with everyone! I want to introduce people to some underrated or unknown authors. I also blog about other media I consume such as TV, Movies, Podcasts, and Video Games.
