Book Description


'The Drive'

"Brian Hadley began to recognize that he was losing
everything he had been working his whole life to build. He realized he needed
to reconnect with his family before it was too late. In hopes of salvaging what
is left of their slowly dissolving and parting relationships, he designed what
he thought to be the perfect family get away; a road trip to a remote mountain
Lodge merely a few hundred miles drive away from their home.
Along the way
Brian, his wife Kathy and their three children discover much more than a rekindling
of their family bonds with each other as they attempt to escape the deadly and
treacherous landscape surrounding them.

Their holiday away to discover each other rapidly becomes a
struggle for their very survival when they are suddenly thrust into a wild and
unpredictable land filled with unnatural and deadly threats at every turn. A
place shrouded in dense unforgiving fog and seemingly determined to destroy
them as they endure one torment after another.

The question is no longer will they regain what
they have lost from each other, but rather how will they survive, the drive.
"


Editorial Reviews

Review

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite a few type errors, it was a very good read. I'd downloaded it to my Kindle, but my husband was the one who started reading it first.

It kept me guessing throughout and I was left speechless at the ending.

Well worth the time to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars SPOOKY! May 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the entire book in one sitting. It was an eerie book, and the author did a good job of describing the surroundings. I could really picture the thick fog and weird sandy ground. It kept my interest throughout. There were a few typos, but nothing bad. There were several curse words that I would have preferred not to see, though. Other than that, I enjoyed it. I went back and read the first of the book at the end. (You'll know who the men are in the prologue if you do). Would loved to have known what happened to the main characters...It leaves you guessing, or maybe there will be a sequel?
