So this is actually my first Stephen King book. Not really a reason why but it was only two hours of an audiobook and I say, “eh, what the heck” and picked it up before I started my next one.
I got a taste of King’s writing with this. This girl, Emily, is going through some crazy emotional things. Her daughter passed, her husband isn’t really supporting her and all she wants to do is run, and run hard.
She goes to her father’s shack by the Gulf of Florida for a get away, to gather her thoughts, when she literally walks into a situation where someone can’t escape alive: her or this guy who kills girls he brings there and says they are his “nieces.”
All I can really comment on is the writing. There is no sugar coating. She peed her pants at one point because that would probably happen to someone who is being attacked by someone you know killed someone else. He doesn’t leave anything out when it comes to that but he also doesn’t over do anything with too many adjectives.
It was a really short book so you don’t really get to “know” Emily very well, but I think that was the point. Just a short story about a really freaky kidnapping and how someone already going through a lot deals with it.
I didn’t really like the narrator very well. I also couldn’t find her name. But she didn’t have any emotion in her voice nor did she give people different voices. It kind of made it hard to follow.
