Sounds like an overdone plot line, but therein is the magic of Moody's storytelling. He creates tension between so many people in so many ways and as it mounts, one MUST read on to learn how the piano wire of discord will eviscerate it's victims.
Like his previous work, his strength is in the realistic portrayal of his characters. You don't have people coming out unscathed against overwhelming odds, as you see in so many other writers books. Characters in his novels act in a realistic manner, and the outcome of their actions are what you would expect if these events were actually occurring.
If you are wondering why I give this book 4 stars instead of 5, it's quite simple. I believe the rating system is just not accurate. To me, a 5 star book is nothing short of a literary masterpiece.
Great work Mr. Moody. Looking forward to all your future releases.
Strangers, like many of his stories, is a desolate thing with some highly unpleasant subject matter and narrative twists. If you're familiar with his work you will discover the elements of paranoia and division that arise in most of his stories to varying extents...but developed and explored quite differently.
The subject matter here is definitely adult and frequently more graphic than in his previous novels...running the gamut from domestic violence and the dangers associated with sex to the more eerie aspects of being uprooted and moving to a strange location surrounded by unfamiliar faces.
If you enjoyed the story Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell (the basis for John Carpenter's The Thing, which was a truer adaptation of the story than the earlier film The Thing From Another World) and David Cronenberg's Shivers, you will love this novel. I was thinking about the similarities between this book and the movies The Thing and Shivers not altogether too long before the same correlation is drawn by characters within the narrative, which was a nice touch by the author, outright paying homage to some of the clear influences.
This was an uncomfortable, spooky book, and I can't recommend it strongly enough.
