What will happen to this family and the people who have been trying to help them?
Hold the Dark isn't like any other book I've ever read. It's gripping and dark and sometimes it made me sick to my stomach. The violence is horrible and the main characters are not what I expected them to be at all. That made this story fascinating. I couldn't put it down, but I didn't want to keep on reading. These conflicting emotions stayed with me until the final page. The writing is really clever and the story is terrible, but so well constructed. Even though there's a lot of violence the writer never get lost in it and the story keeps the high quality it started with. I had no idea where the story would go and how it would end. The journey there is very important and it's both terrifying and intriguing. If you're easily scared, you shouldn't read it, but if you think you can manage you should definitely read Hold The Dark, it's gruesome and really good.
