I don’t want to say too much in fear of spoilers so I will just say: there is something for almost any horror lover here. Terror, supernatural ideals, violence, sex, fast paced and suspenseful. Also, a lot of potential for the rest of this series. So glad I got the opportunity to read this and I recommend to all fans of modern horror. Bring it on Stone!
This book is what would happen if The Stand and The Walking Dead got together and had a baby on some hardcore LSD. It takes the supernatural thriller to a new extreme, and I, for one, CANNOT wait for whatever comes next!
Added note: I LOVE that this book is set in Massachusetts (even if Lenton is a ficticious town), and was SO EXCITED to know that Amy, Jason, and Duke attempted to get to the real town of Attleboro, since I grew up there! Ha ha, I know, nothing to do with my actual review, but I just had to mention it!
Joe Stone brings these together into a kinetic, terrifying and, at times, disturbing narrative set within an idyllic New England town that suddenly goes to hell in a hand basket - literally. Through the chaos Stone brings together six disparate characters who have no previous association with one another and forces them to work together for their very survival. They are a surprisingly appealing team, challenged by the hellish nightmare that threatens them. When Satan presents himself, he goads each of them with their own private 'sins' yet each of them are able to put them aside in the face of something that is far greater than themselves.
Stone creates scenes of crackling tension, guttural violence and, surprisingly, moments of quiet reflection that lift this novel up from being a generic slasher fest, offering the reader something that is more thought provoking. Readers are warned however that it is, at times, particularly violent so I would not recommend it for the faint hearted.
The Many is the first in a series and it sets the reader up for a sequel that has a lot of potential.
I'm in for the ride.
