When the end is near will you know it Will signs appear to show it And what sort of end will it be Ice or fire Conflagration Land consumed by an angry sea And what if there s uncertainty What if this is not the result of that, but just the way things are, under no one s control to cause or prevent And if there is no control, what is the role of those who speak on behalf of an unseen power Do they suffer from confusion, perhaps delusion Can we take them at their word What if they insist we go along with their intrusion, even though we ve reached a very different conclusion Lines are drawn when the mad demand our subjugation What sort of god could allow such things and still insist on adoration Paul Tremblay image from Litreactor.com Wenling Wen will be eight years old in a few days She and her two daddies, Eric and Andrew, are away from it all, up from Cambridge, at a cabin in northern New Hampshire, near the Canadian border Her dads chose this place because there would be no Wi fi or cell reception so they could unplug and it would be just the three of them hanging out, swimming, talking, playing cards or board games without any digital distractions Peace and quiet, no nearby neighbors, plenty of grasshoppers Wen is outside collecting some in a jar, to study She is even giving them names, and making sure to pick smaller ones that will not damage themselves on the jagged edges of the air holes she s poked in the metal lid Out of nowhere a very large man
2.5 The book started great but it quickly fell flat It probably would have made a better short story.Don t recommend the audiobook as some characters sounded quite robotic and it took me out of the story.O
3.5 STARS Your dads won t let us in, Wen But they have to Tell them they have to We are not here to hurt you We need your help to save the world Please I love that, when you pick up a Paul Tremblay novel, you never know exactly what you re getting yourself into until you finish the book Each one of his novels are widely different in plot, but also wholly similar in their unsettling and deliciously compulsive nature Each of his fans have their own personal favorite for me, that s A Head Full Of Ghosts Regardless of which book you ve taken to mostly, I think all who enjoy his books can agree that no one writes about the dark and gritty unseen moments of domestic life like he can That said, I enjoyed The Cabin At The End Of The World, but it wasn t my favorite Come inside, now Please come in You have to Hurry There are people here and they want to come in and they want to talk to you and some of them scare me The tension and building of suspense here is brilliant I felt like a brittle bone I was so rigid and engrossed while reading that if someone had come along and poked me with their pinky, I may have shattered What is this book about you ask I d rather not say, partially because I m still trying to process what exactly I just read It s very hard to talk about any specifics here, because this is a very different book with a very different vibe and to spo
4.5 starsWhen I first started reading this book, I thought if the horror films The Strangers and The Cabin in the woods had a baby it would be this book Of course, there are major differences and plots but still.A getaway to a cabin sounds like a perfect time away for Wen and her two dads They are going to relax, she wants to catch some grasshoppers and they plan to enjoy the lake But one day a man approaches Wen while she is busy catching her grasshoppers and tells her None of what s going to happen is your fault and Your dads won t want to let us in, Wen But they must We need your help to save the world So, what would you do Four strangers show up on your doorstep, telling you to let them inside They won t hurt you, but you must let them in Do you Do you believe their stories about the apocalypse Sounds crazy right Who are these people Why should you believe them Would you let them in To say that I thought this book was fantastic is an understatement I loved the family Wen is adorable and inquisitive She wants to study grasshoppers, so she can save them if they get sick She loves her Dads and has a wonderful home life with them Andrew and Eric love Wen They are affectionate and extremely likable Tremblay has the rea
THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD takes a look at an American family and asks what are you willing to do to protect them But this book asks that question in an unique way right before it rips your heart out and stomps all over it Eric and Andrew take their daughter Wen on vacation to a remote cabin located on a lake in the woods of New Hampshire It s been deliberately chosen because it has no cell service, no internet, no nothing They want to spend this time together, uninterrupted as a family Unfortunately, their dream vacation came to a screeching halt when a large man named Leonard wandered into their front yard and started talking to Wen Soon thereafter, three people join him and together, they enter the cabin Things go so downhill from there, it s hard to even talk about What happens after that You ll have to read this book to find out To give away any about the plot would be spoilery, so I m just going to talk about my thoughts and impressions and leave it at that First, I love the way that Paul Tremblay writes families He always provides honest insights and observations and as such,
Too many people have smiles that don t mean what a smile is supposed to mean Eric and Andrew are staying in a remote cabin on a New Hampshire lake with their seven year old child, Wen, who is catching grasshoppers in the garden when a large man appears He is friendly at first and is starting to win Wen over when he abruptly says, None of what is going to happen is your fault Three strangers then appear in the driveway holding deadly weaponsThis has probably been my most disappointing read of the year my rage is fuelled further by the fact that I wasted a precious October read on it Writing a review like this is difficult when the author is quite active on bookstagram etc, especially when they are a pretty cool guy, as Tremblay is, but I do believe it s of the utmost importance to always be honest in your reviews This book was majorly hyped on bookstagram but unfortunately it really fell flat for me.The first 50 pages or so were incredibly promising I was HOOKED and needed to know what happened next But then nothing really did for the next 250 pages I mean, sure, perhaps events did occur but I felt like the story itself didn t really move forward It was basically 250 pages
DARK VERY DARK
Can see why Stephen King endorsed this gripping and horrifying tale.Yikes
The creepy, unsettling start A sweet, but cautious seven year old Wen knows very well she shouldn t talk to strangers, but this BIG guy is so nice and is helping her catch grasshoppers after all so everything is copacetic until his repeated requests for her help become frightening.
Run to the cabin she does to warn daddy Eric and daddy Andrew The cabin doors are bolted.the man as BIG as a boulder and his scary entourage appear, and the relaxing week at the lake turns threatening and deadly.
The menacing visitors.with their ominous tools insist they must be allowed in.just to talk.to explain why they have come to this remote location.to them.
Time is of the essence to prevent the worst.the annihilation of humanity
Did you ever finish a book then realize you have absolutely no idea how to review it Well, that is this book for me I m afraid of saying anything about the plot because of spoilers I really think this is a book that is best to go into blind First and foremost Paul Tremblay gave us characters that you immediately care for Eric, Andrew, and their adopted daughter Wen are such a breath of fresh air They feel so real and their interactions with one another were so natural and fluid That s how he get s you though He makes you care and because you care you just keep flipping those pages hoping beyond hope for the safety of this family.There is one scene in this book where I will admit that I cursed you Mr Tremblay.HOW COULD YOU DO THAT Weeps I think the ending of this book is going to get a lot of people talking People are either going to love it or hate it I found it
Review first appeared in the September October 2018 issue of Scream Magazine UPDATE July 2nd, 2019 Congratulations to Paul for winning the Locus Award and the Stoker Award for achievement in a novel.https www.tor.com 2019 06 29 announhttp horror.org 2018 bram stoker awSo this book, The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay is going to be my new go to recommendation for any reader that still thinks horror is only blood guts and scary stuff But hang in there with me a little bit while I explain why.Being a ferocious fan of horror, I m regularly faced with genre stereotypes For example, a friend was looking at my personal collection and she says, So much Stephen King I said, Well, he s been my favorite author since I was like thirteen She scrunches up her nose and says, Ugh Why He only writes scary stuff right I try not to take offense to these sort of ignorant statements I say ignorant not to be insulting but truly because they just don t know I can t fault them for what they don t know But it s the same sort of ignorance I find in bookstores EVERYWHERE, among people who should actually know better.Horror authors are usually shelved in general fiction
