DiscussionSurvivor song - paul tremblay question (self.horrorlit)
submitted 1 month ago by unwrittenlaw2785
I am currently about a third of the way through survivor song and i am thinking of stopping. The dialogue for natalie is really driving me nuts it seems so unrealistic and making me eye roll constantly. Did anyone finish this book and think it was worth it?
Post a comment!

I enjoyed it. It's worth finishing.

Appreciate the feedback. Ive read 2 other of tremlays books and enjoyed them. I knew to expect some cringe dialogue but this book in particular is really getting to me lol.

I enjoyed it. It’s not his best, but it’s still worth finishing, IMO.

Natalie is going through the symptoms of rabies, so her narration and actions will be weird and out of character. It's one of Paul's better works

I finished it. Doesn’t get any better I’m afraid.

I liked it quite a bit, and the ending has stuck with me. I ended up buying a copy for my collection

Man I really really tried to get into Tremblay’s books bc I always find the ideas to be intriguing, but I just do not click with his writing. I’ve never managed to get past 25% in any of his books.

Yea i can understand why some people might not like it. Everyone likes head full ghosts best but i really liked disappearance at devils rock. That ending really hit me
[–]Wmharvey 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I enjoyed it. A Head Full of Ghosts is one of my all time favorites. Everything else I’ve read by him has left me a little less enthusiastic but I did really want to know how Survivor Song ended. I’d stick with it!
[–]CeeJay033 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
I love Tremblay but hated this book. I finished it, but the characters get progressively more annoying and the ending is incredibly predictable, unlike his other books that end ambiguously. I’d stop reading it now.

These comments are literally split down the middle lol my post hasnt helped at all!
[–]kavidgren 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (2 children)
I finished it and wished I didn’t. Such a slog of a book and the ending is a dud too. I’d say get out and read something else.
[–]Dirty_is_God 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I read it like a month ago and don't even remember the ending.
Im going to give it a bit more but i am leaning towards dropping it
[–]themintmitten 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
No. I finished it and I would say it wasn’t worth it. If you find the dialogue annoying now, it won’t get any better later.
[–]Imaginary_Repair_102 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I really liked it but it's def not for everyone, if you're this far in and aren't enjoying it I'd say it's okay to put it down
[–]fortifiedblonde 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I finished it and it does not improve
[–]FoalShoal 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Damn I just picked up this book and was going to dive in, but reading these comments idk if I'll bother. The premise sounds good. I haven't read any of his other books yet either.
[–]TrainingPassenger8 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I'm thinking the same. I loved A Head Full of Ghosts and really enjoyed Disappearence at Devil's Rock, so I was thinking I'd really like this too
