The Ruins

The Ruins - Scott B. Smith With a concept and "villain" that could easily turn the book into just silly camp, it's the sheer audacity and confidence of the writing and character development that elevates this story above expectations! One of the novel's most ingenious achievements is trapping the characters in an environment that's claustrophobic and at the same time terrifyingly exposed! It is one of my absolute favorite horror novels. Scott Smith needs to stop taking these long breaks between books! Where the hell has he been?!

*Note: It's best to know as little as possible about this book's plot before reading...*
