About the book

image3.6/5.0

Now a Netflix Original Movie! When four old University friends set off into the Scandinavian wilderness of the Arctic Circle, they aim to briefly escape the problems of their lives and reconnect with one another. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise. With limited experience between them, a shortcut meant to ease their hike turns into a nightmare scenario that could cost them their lives. Lost, hungry, and surrounded by forest untouched for millennia, Luke figures things couldn't possibly get any worse. But then they stumble across an old habitation. Ancient artefacts decorate the walls and there are bones scattered upon the dry floors. The residue of old rites and pagan sacrifice for something that still exists in the forest. Something responsible for the bestial presence that follows their every step. As the four friends stagger in the direction of salvation, they learn that death doesn't come easy among these ancient trees . . .

Technically a 6.5 as I don’t like it enough to rate it as Good. Gory, brutal, moving in certain parts and incredibly effective with its depiction of Moder, but ultimately loaded with such snide hatred for feminity/women And fatness that it reflects poorly on the author himself.

An amazing read by Adam Nevill! Great horror writing and one I have read multiple times. Great to find an author that is not a one book wonder for me.
