You really feel for the characters and kind of feel their anguish at having to do gruesome stuff without even knowing why they are doing it. It is a story in the style of Saw but with so much more volume to it.
Of course, there is a very accentuated human element to the story as you get to see the "guests" having to decide who dies and the whole idea of redemption was great. I probably did not enjoy the deep purpose of redemption as the characters do not even remember who they are and how they got there. Maybe that was a bit of a plothole for me.
Besides that, a brilliant idea with a very interesting narrative.
The twelve characters are diverse and interesting enough. But I think the story took a while to pick up its pace and excitement. The story is a harsh and cruel reflection of human nature. There is the big question about morals and ethics behind the story about how we judge the people around us based on bits of information that we have which may or may not be true. Who deserves to survive? Do our backgrounds and alleged behavior make us any less worthy of survival than others?
Overall an interesting read.
I think this book is great, the writing style keeps you on the edge of your seat and guessing what will happen next. The ending itself was very unexpected and dramatic and leaves you questioning what had just happened. This is definitely a book to get and enjoy if you are a fan of the horror/supernatural genre.
Just trying to picture you in the same situation in this book, the thrilling scene makes me sweat, just by reading every page I was exhausted, the eerie music in the background, surrounded by strangers, the vagueness of the setting and characters is just phenomenal.
I don’t know how such writing skills manages to completely immerse you in this book, you feel the pain and fear of every character and as time goes by the worse it gets, this book is amazing, is a nightmare you have to pull yourself together to keep reading but it’s worth the effort, the amount of tension here is surreal, no over the top deaths, wooden characters or unnecessary gore, everything has a purpose here, even redemption, but you learn more after you buy it and read it.
The premise of the book reminds me of a movie called "The Cube," which was similarly an story about some people who had to escape from a twisted maze. If you like that sort of horror story, I'm sure you'll find this book engaging and suspenseful.
It's also interesting, beyond the suspense punctuated by revulsion and terror, to see how the characters interact and develop within the context of the story, as they're set on each other to pick the others off one by one until one is left.
