Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul Tremblay @paulGtremblay @WmMorrowBooks

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

AUTHOR: Paul Tremblay
PUBLISHER: William Morrow
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 288 pages
GENRE: Horror
ISBN: 9780062679109
The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King’s Misery, Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum’s cult hit The Girl Next Door.

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what’s going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: "Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world."

Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay.

This one sounds like it would freak me out! Pretty much anything having to do with a remote cabin away from civilization immediately piques my interest and gives me goosebumps. 

Even Stephen King thinks it is terrifying:

  1. Well, if Stephen King loved it... I'm excited for this as well, although I didn't love the first Paul Tremblay book I read, I still want to check this out:-)

  2. Hope you get a chance to read it soon, it sounds like it will certainly be a good one.

  3. I read another book by this author a couple of years ago and liked it very much. Yes, it was a bit creepy - but I like that from time to time. This one looks good too.

  4. Wow! This does sound good. I love horror. I'm going to look into other books by this author.

  5. I love horror so this one is right up my alley! I have to add it to my TBR!
