Description

A compelling folk-horror story of deadly rivalry and the oldest magic from the author of The Ritual, The Reddening, No One Gets Out Alive and the four times winner of The August Derleth Award for Best Horror Novel.

No home is heaven with hell next door.

Money's tight and their new home is a fixer-upper. Deep in rural South West England, with an ancient wood at the foot of the garden, Tom and his family are miles from anywhere and anyone familiar. His wife, Fiona, was never convinced that buying the money-pit at auction was a good idea. Not least because the previous owner committed suicide. Though no one can explain why.

Within days of crossing the threshold, when hostilities break out with the elderly couple next door, Tom's dreams of future contentment are threatened by an escalating tit-for-tat campaign of petty damage and disruption.

Increasingly isolated and tormented, Tom risks losing his home, everyone dear to him, and his mind. Because, surely, only the mad would suspect that the oddballs across the hedgerow command unearthly powers. A malicious magic even older than the eerie wood and the strange barrow therein. A hallowed realm from where, he suspects, his neighbours draw a hideous power.

“Adam Nevill excels at making nightmares real.” (Guardian)

“Nevill has crafted some of the tensest scariest horror this reviewer has read in years.” (SFX)

writing Too heavy

The writing is to heavy, and also the reader, it distracted me from the plot. A little sad..

I can’t even continue

I’m really bummed that I can’t finish this book. The narrator is so boring and difficult to listen to. There’s no way I can listen to 10 more hours of this. I wish I had listened to the previous reviews about the narrator or at least googled him to see if id be able to pay attention to him drawling on. Now I’m out a credit and without a book to listen to.

Enjoying the story, narration is rough

Most of the narration is just fine but his female voice is very grating. When it's an angry female voice it hits a Monty Python-esqe comical level that really takes you out of the story. Also, there's a water trickling sound through a lot of the book. I don't know if the narrator just has a really wet mouth or if he had a small desktop fountain near his microphone. I'm still going to finish because the story hooked me but I'll definitely remember to avoid this narrator in the future.

Wonderful performance!

I really enjoyed the narration which perfectly captured the essence of the book. The story is reminiscent of some of my favorites yet manages to stay original and interesting.

loved it.

Nevill has a fantastic talent for taking the ancient world, the things that we have forgotten about, and bringing them backup to the surface. He has an excellent talent for having his characters come unraveled at things that would pull a person's threads apart.

Great book.

terrible narration

had to bail. I've read other Adam Nevill books, the ritual is great and I liked the reddening, but the narration on this is awful. he reads modern horror like he's reading Dickens. takes you right out of the story.

Dropped a lot of pallets to this book working RSR.

I enjoyed it, have a young daughter myself, it was stressful. Certainly worth a listen.

Slowly chilling

The first half of the book is slow and primarily introspective of the characters. The supernatural elements start subtle enough to be doubted. The second half becomes gory very quickly, The plot holds together with Tom’s deteriorating stability and the revealed supernatural happenings. But read with caution if gory horror isn’t your normal reading.

another good one from Adam Nevill!

Another great, surreal read by Adam Nevill. Good story, absolute awful neighbors (they are supposed to be terrible). Great setting, made me want to read Wylding Hall again. This one did seem a little too similar to The Reddening for my taste. But will that keep me from reading more by this author? Heck no! Adam is a great author!

Interesting Story

Beneath mountains of metaphors, similes, and excess description there is a great story. One major theme was unleashing rage without truly understanding what the receiving end of that rage is capable of. The initial instant gratification of releasing rage doesn’t figure in consequences or the strength of the opposing party. Quite timely social commentary. The ending was really satisfying.

Adam Nevill Strikes Again

This is another great horror novel by Nevill. Old gods and original ideas converge in his novels in ways that always leave me a bit stunned at the end. Love it
