The Cabin at the End of the World: A Novel
A young girl plays in the front yard of a rented cabin when a stranger approaches. The stranger is friendly, kind, and direct, asking for the girl’s help. You see, she and her adopted parents are the planet’s only hope of survival. The young girl runs into the house, telling her parents about the stranger and his friends.
And the events that follow will test the girl, her parents, and the strangers in ways you could never anticipate.
The Cabin at the End of the World is tense from the first sentence onward. An unsettling, dark, and brilliant exploration of trust, perception, and the meaning of belief, the book casts the protagonists in an impossible situation, and then simply lets it play out in front of the reader.
This book is absolutely relentless in all the best ways, making you feel like you’re in the cabin with the family and the strangers, and you’re powerless to intervene.
Couple the setup and the near-flawless execution with a devastating twist halfway through the book, and you’ve got something special here. The Cabin at the End of the World is a true rarity, a thriller that is genuinely thrilling from start to finish.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
