Reading: Suicide Forest

Suicide Forestby Jeremy Bates

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

My first initial thought was ‘%&!# that was lame’ – But I realise that it’s hardly a review. So a more adult version is;
First part of the book is stupid slow, lots of getting to know the characters, and getting introduced to situations and characters that serves no, NO – purpose at all. I realize the author must have thought that a deep character makes us care, but it just falls flat because it is pointless and boring.
The middle of the book is actually really decent, hence the 1 star – it efficiently was creepy, and kept you guessing why people were dying, was it a supernatural curse, or was it a ‘who done it’ situation.
The last part of the book, the conclusion was so lame that it made me laugh- and just when I thought I had reached the peak of stupid, it just got worse from there.
I do not under any circumstances recommend this book, I would rather sort socks or stare at paint drying. And I wonder what went wrong, the author has this fantastic scene with a long and deep history, and he manages to make it into a uwe boll movie.
