BUT about midway through the book, everything clicked and I found myself engrossed in this commentary/horror tale. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing and turning the pages.
There's definitely a Lord of the Flies atmosphere to the story although I think it could have been toned down a little. Teen angst, bullying, lust, stereotypical behaviours - all seemed to be exaggerated and almost slapstick in some spots.
And this definitely isn't a book for young teens (language, violence, sexual situations) even though it has teen characters in it. I'm glad that the authors realize this and are marketing it to mature Teens/New Adults.
Overall, I would recommend this book to readers that want a different type of horror story - both internalized and externalized horror.
Wherewolves is a thrill ride that starts with a group of “at risk students” on a survival weekend that is meant to help them get past some traumas in their personal lives and help them find their inner hero and ends with the survivors being traumatized in ways that would have surprised even Rod Serling.
This is NOT a straight up teenagers vs. monsters story. This is much more going on here then wherewolves hunting their teen aged prey. While the pack picking off the kids and turning them into dog chow is terrifying enough, what is really going on is absolutely chilling.
They author tells a very deep story where the tension levels are often off the hook. There are times when it felt like the reader just needed a rest but putting the book down was impossible. With that said, the problem with the book is that its lack of likable characters. There were times I found myself rooting for the monsters, which actually may have been the authors intent. There is also a bit too much of a mixed group of teenagers doing what a mixed group of teenagers would do if dropped into the woods. I know enough about the pranks and sex life teenagers from MTV's Jackass and Teen Mom, I didn’t find it helpful in this book. Other than that, I thought this was a fun and intense read that gives us horror fans a break from zombies.
Right away These kids have an edge of physicality. They are willing and able to carry weapons. They do not like weakness. When things fall apart in the woods, we really do not know where to turn. My single criticism is that the kids are just enough alike that the names and identities are not easily remembered. In many places this doesn't matter at all. And of course some of these kids we really do not mind seeing afraid. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review, but I will buy the sequel if any emerges.
The prose of this novel holds the story well. The plot is well manipulated. I would agree many of the interactions belong in YA, but nothing is wrong with that. . The last few pages really are a surprise, and it adds quite a dimension to the book! I am a forest coward, certainly wouldn't read it before a hike!
Not the same old same, it’s a new take on an old theme. Moving at the speed of light, it’s fast-paced and adventurous. With quick wit and incisive descriptions, the characters are fleshed out just enough to make them interesting and ripe for attack. Loved the book and loved the writing team. It’s a good read that delivers!
