In A Dark, Dark Wood
Summary: In a dark, dark wood
Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back.
There was a dark, dark house
Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?
And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room
But something goes wrong. Very wrong.
And in the dark, dark room….
Some things can’t stay secret for ever.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
Over the summer I realized as I was walking through Target that I had all but one of Ruth Ware’s books. And so I grabbed In a Dark, Dark Wood to read at a later date.
I’ve honestly been hit and miss with Ruth. I’ve liked some way better than others- and all that I’ve read (I still have to read Turn of the Key) have been somewhere in the “good” category- some are just better than others.
In A Dark, Dark Wood def has appeal- but it’s def not my favorite.
What I liked:
The cover. So creepy.
Secrets. Red herrings. Betrayal. A creepy setting. No cell phone service. A phone line that mysteriously quits working. YES to all that. Also, further reminder of WHY I will not be going to the middle of the absolute NOWHERE for a friend get-together. Read my lips folks: Bad sh*t happens when you do this.
Bottom line: From my Goodreads review: “All this come together to form a mystery that was very readable- while chock full of characters that could have taken a long walk off a short cliff for all I cared about 😉 ” In the end, it’s a good book, but not a GREAT book.
