Product description

Review

I started IN A DARK, DARK WOOD on an airplane, kept dipping into it whenever I was left alone, devoured another big chunk on the flight home, and after that surrendered myself to it until the last revelation had bloomed, the final surprise had exploded, and the bittersweet conclusive turn had folded the final page. Ruth Ware has written an exciting, and in fact amazing book that never stops circling around behind the reader and clapping its cold hands over her eyes.--Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author

I raced through this, totally unable to put it down...Dark, smart and compulsive.--Nicci Cloke, author of Lay Me Down

"So gripping. So glad my hen days are behind me. It's going to be huge."--Tamar Cohen, author of Dying for Christmas and The Broken

"Likely to be the next "Gone Girl.""--Elizabeth Willse "Surrounded by Books "

"An English psychological thriller...compared to "Gone Girl "and "Girl on the Train.""--Steve Bennett "My San Antonio "

"If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware's analysis of the power-games some women revel in - and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships - is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane."--Patricia Nicol "Independent " --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book is quite simply well plotted and crafted.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 May 2020
I was a little late arriving at the party as far as Ruth Ware is concerned. My first experience of her work was when I recently read the excellent "The Turn of the Key". I am now setting about catching up with her back catalogue in chronological order.

"In a Dark Dark Wood" is another very enjoyable book. It isn't particularly difficult to work out who does the deed, but this is one of those instances when it doesn't really matter. There aren't red herrings a-plenty just for the sake of it, so that it purely becomes a random guessing game about who did what. The book is simply well plotted and crafted. As in "The Turn of the Key" the setting is well chosen to add to the atmosphere and the characters are well drawn.

Sometimes you come across a writer whose style and approach you just connect with. Based on the two books by Ruth Ware that I have now read, I would have to say that she falls into that category for me. I am looking forward to the next on the list!
