On my hind legs and tap dancing with my hooves. NOGOA makes Kit powers novel of the year at Gingernuts.
And my massive thanks goes out to Jim Mcleod and Gingernuts for supporting our horror scene and culture for another year.
“Not a galloping shock for those of you who follow my reviews, I suspect, but it’s got to be Adam Nevill’s No One Gets Out Alive. Again, I don’t have a lot to add to my review, except to say that what makes this novel so exceptional, for me, is that it manages to be both one of the very best haunted house stories I’ve ever read, and also a devastating and quietly furious meditation on the reality of poverty. At the same time. Oh, and it also has what is simply one of the most unexpected and original final acts I have ever read. And it is phenomenally well written. In fact.. ah hell. Read the review, then read the book. And don’t blame me for any lost sleep”
