Synopsis: Sometimes the only thing to fear…is yourself.
When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to the English countryside for a weekend away, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new, an unnerving memory shatters Leonora’s reserve, and a haunting realization creeps in: the party is not alone in the woods.
In a Dark, Dark Wood has an interesting plot. The entire story centers around a hen party (known as a Bachlorette part in the America for the bride to be). The party takes place in a minimalist glass house located in the middle of the woods during the winter time, and of course, without cell reception.
Personally, I felt that what I was expecting from this story is not what I got. When I picked the book up, it was sold as a dark thriller. It was even compared to Gone Girl...it's hard to believe people are still pitching books comparing them to Gone Girl...anyway, I digress. I simply wanted more. I was expecting a huge plot twist and it didn't quite hit the mark.
