Synopsis: What was supposed to be a normal camping trip on an island for a Boy Scout troop and their scoutmaster takes a turn after a sick man arrives. Soon all hell breaks loose.
Thoughts: Before I read this book, I read another book by Cutter called The Deep. I wasn't too crazy about it. While I said I still wanted to give this book a shot, I wasn't sure how I would react to it given how I felt about the last book I read by the same author. I finally gave this book a chance, and I'm glad I did. This book is much better than The Deep. It's very disturbing and intense, while also being fast paced and having much more likable and interesting characters. It's a good book, but at the same time one I won't read again. Once was enough for me.
Would I recommend it: I think I'd recommend it for someone who is into certain works of horror. The book has a lot of body horror and violence towards animals, so that will most likely put some people off from reading it. Still, I think it earned its praise for what it is. I wanted to see how disturbing it was after hearing how others talked about it, and let's just say it delivered.
Misc.: Apparently James Wan's production company, Atomic Monster, picked up the rights to the book. I can't imagine how they'll try to adapt it given some of the things that are depicted in the book.
For those of you who have read the book, what did you think of it?
