The Room is a compelling story of possession, evil, and the struggle of a family dealing with the unknown. Derek Blass has a way of permeating your mind with his vivid storytelling. You can sense the character's emotions, see the world they live in, and, most of all, feel their fear.
The horror genre is a difficult one, as there is a fine line between scary and cheesy, but The Room delivers. I read the book quickly and was impressed by how it grabbed my attention and kept me wanting more. Derek Blass is a master of suspense, knowing exactly how much to give you and hook you in.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Room and I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
I don't know what it is about horror/thriller stories right now, but they're in for me. Movies, books, I'm devouring all of it. This made The Room a no-brainer. I scooped it up and was pleasantly delighted to find developed characters with robust backstories above and beyond the written pages of this tale. It lends a more tangible feel to the reality.
I also enjoy that the story is set in Denver, a location I know well. At the same time, I learned about the history of the city through reading this and that was a bonus.
The trouble with horror these days is that the stories can be too short and often teeter towards the melodramatic. That isn't the case in Blass' latest work. The story has room to breathe and grow and the reader is encouraged to carry on by having enough left in the shadows to pique your interest. When it seems to border on the predictable, Blass changes gears to keep it fresh. You can feel the icy touch of evil in the tale as your eyes flit across the page and it makes you stop and think about the history of your living situation.
Looking at the previous reviews, I can see that this book may not be for everyone. I think it is fun, dark, lively, and easy to read. It's definitely worth picking up.
