      Moving Day Coming Soon   01/11/2021

      As many of you know, we've been looking at changing hosts for a while now. This will allow us to access the tech support we need for the site and should speed up the forum as well as ironing out a few issues we've been having recently.    We are now signed up to the new hosting plan and can go ahead with the move as soon as the new hosts have everything they need (which is currently being sorted!). The forum should not be offline for more than a day during the switch and hopefully it won't even take that long. I don't have an exact time or day for the move yet but this is an early warning to expect some downtime soon.   When we are offline, no matter how briefly, you can follow the forum twitter page (@bookclubforum) for updates.

This is another of those books which is difficult to describe without giving too much away, whilst being a book you want to tell everyone to read! 

 

Nate is on minimum wage, and needing somewhere cheap to live, so when he's told about an apartment building which fits the bill he jumps at it. Once moved in, he starts to spot some strange things, such as a padlocked door, a false door, a lift which has never worked, and glowing cockroaches. He starts to get to know some of the other residents, and they decide to investigate.

 

I was expecting a haunted house genre, but this is much more about SF and fantasy - but just as importantly, I just loved the characters that the author develops. The actual story is quite slow to get started, but by the time it does, you're so invested in these characters that it makes it come alive. 

 

Cline also drops in lots of references to horror writers and pop cultures, some of which I probably missed - if you like Lost, Fringe, Doctor Who etc, you'll find yourself grinning when you hear them.

 

Highly recommended, and I've moved straight on to Ex Heroes by the same author. 

 

(From what I can see, this is out for the kindle and as an audiobook, with the paperback coming soon.)

This sounds really interesting, Michelle. I really enjoyed Ex-Heroes, and I like the sound of this being a sort of mix of horror, fantasy and SF.

 

Added to the wishlist!
