Easy listen!

This book had a good plot. I rated it a 3 star because it felt very rushed. I wish I could have understood some of the character development a little more. Overall it was an easy listen. Not too scary, but great for anyone looking for a fall thrill!

Disappointingly dull. Great premise but fell flat.

A hard genre to stand out among with films - the slasher/stalker thriller. So many recycle ideas, don't bother with character development past a simple stereotype, villains are obvious. One of my least favourite sorts of films to watch.

But I was intrigued to see the idea of an escape room played out over pages rather than a screen. Escape rooms are rather popular as a concept at the moment, and as a (showing my age) fan of the original Crystal Maze programme, the idea of games and puzzles with a killer thrown in hooked me.

Sadly though, I soon found this rather humdrum. Not overly interesting teenage characters, they soon find themselves in an escape room situation. I was listening to this on Audible and despite a nicely-voiced set of narrators covering multiple characters, had to really concentrate to pay attention.

It seemed to follow genre conventions, switched between characters for tension and viewpoint, even the killer. But I was just bored, I'm afraid. I don't think the escape room itself worked well, these seem hard to describe and visualise when compared to watching one in action.

And I just didn't really care. I didn't really care what happened to the characters, sympathy hadn't been built up, and I had no real curiosity about who was controlling the action and why. This is not how it's meant to be. My favourite thrillers (again, not my favourite genre, but a good one really does stand out and make you pay attention) have you reading hungrily, guessing, physically sweating for the protagonists and their wellbeing.

I'd like to know what teenagers who may identify with these characters more than I do, think about this book. Maybe it works better on a page than in audio format.

While the narrators did a good job of bringing their characters out, I just didn't connect with the writing, the plot or the people. Not for me. Maybe for 14-17 year olds who are just experiencing thrillers for the first time and need a familiar context to get a feel for it.

With thanks to Nudge Books for providing a sample Audible copy.

Escape Room

This is such a good book!
It kind of reminds me of ‘Pretty Little Liars.’
