Pig Island (ARC)
3 journalers for this copy...
Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes, but when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned. On the trial of a strange creature caught briefly on film, so deformed it can hardly be human, Oakes crosses a border of electrical fencing, toxin-filled oil drums, and pigs’ skulls to infiltrate the territory of the groups’ isolated founder, Malachi Dove. Their confrontation, and its violent aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oakes to question the nature of evil—and whether he might be responsible for the heinous crime about to unfold. Startling and uncompromising, Pig Island confirms Mo Hayder as one of the most talented, compelling thriller writers now working.
Pig Island has you on the edge of your seat from the very first word. As you go through the book, you start turning the pages quicker and your heart starts beating faster. You can't wait to figure out how it's going to end and you get thrown for such a complete loop at the end you don't even realize what's hit you until it's over.
Although other Hayder works are fantastic reads, Pig Island is her best. But it's not for the feint of heart. There are satanic rituals, mass murders, and a lot of gore. Any sick shit fan will love this book.
What a creepy book. I really didn't get into it very much. I'm not a big fan of this type of thriller/mystery. But I do recall a lot of people on bookobsessed loved it. I guess it's just not my cup of tea.
