In A Dark, Dark Wood By Ruth Ware


Book Description:

Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back.

In a dark, dark wood there was a dark, dark house

Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?

And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room

But something goes wrong. Very wrong.

And in the dark, dark room…

Some things can’t stay secret for ever.

My Thoughts:

In a Dark, Dark Wood is a dark psychological thriller that had me hooked right from the start.

Nora is invited to a hen do by Clare, a friend that she hasn’t seen or heard from since school. The setting for the hen do is in a house in a remote setting in the woods that for me, gave the whole scenario a very creepy and chilling feel to it.

There are six people in all that are party to the hen do, which some of the characters were certainly more intriguing than others.

The reader from the start knows there is something not quite right about the invite and it is obvious that something awful is going to happen on the hen weekend and I for one enjoyed every minute of reading this book as the events unfolded.

For anyone who likes their reads to be dark and thrilling certainly need not to look any further than In a Dark, Dark Wood. It is quite a fast read as you get so gripped by the story you will literally not be able to put it down until you have reached the end. I certainly look forward to reading more by this author.
