This started off quite stodgily. I thought I might have to give up but luckily I persevered because it opened up into the most amazing multi-layered story. The title might refer to the original drive out to the campsite or the drive to survive or even the drive to escape wherever they had found themselves with their lives. Brian's slow descent into almost madness at all that is thrown at him is tangible and my heart went out to his suffering. After the initial slowness, the book took off and I found myself devouring page after page. So much so that I read it in two sittings. This is a very cleverly written horror/suspense that gives far more than is initially obvious. It will appeal to anyone. --wistfulskimmie - Wistfulskimmies Book Reviews...
After just finishing The Drive, I must say that it kept me tense, thrilled and wondering. I have never read a book that had me feeling claustrophobic, full of awe, wondering what would happen next and joyful, all in the same book. I was impressed at how many different elements were so well blended together. And on top of it, to throw in a realistic family dynamic, a hard task to start with. S.J. Johnson does a thoroughly impressive job of weaving a spellbinding if sometimes frightening tale. A must read. --Skip410
