Amazon Editorial Review
A bone-chilling new mystery from the acclaimed author of The Devil of Nanking
Mo Hayder , a rising star of hardcore horror fiction, returns with a riveting and macabre novel that explores the evils committed in the name of faith. Journalist Joe Oakes is a born skeptic who makes his living exposing supernatural hoaxes. But his stay with a cult-like religious group on Scotland?s remote Pig Island might be enough to turn him into a believer. When the island erupts into bloodshed, Oakes must abandon everything he thought he knew to discover the secret behind exiled cult leader Malachi Dove, who lives alone behind a wall of electricity and toxic waste on the island?s far end. As the cataclysm of violence crashes down around him, Oakes is ultimately forced to confront the very nature of evil itself.
I read this a few months ago and enjoyed it.
One more new to me author discovered through BookCrossing, this book seems interesting!
Your parcel was brilliant, thank you very much yorkshire-lass!
The plot was ridiculous, the characters mediocre and unbelievable, the pace after the first couple of chapters so slow it was torturous to read, the so called twists and revelations predictable and unconvincing and even the final scenes were abrupt.
Definitely not my cup of tea. I try hard to find some virtue on this book and I can't and this rarely happens to me. I usually find some positive elemens to mention even on the worst books, but sorry, not here. Well, I finished it, but this is just a weakness of my part, never to leave a book unfinished...
All that said, I'm an optimist and I may give an other try to this author sometime in the future. And thanks once again yorkshire-lass for giving me the chance to read this and form an opinion!
I hope future readers will enjoy this book more than me and let us know : )
