MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Gripping, disturbing and compelling - it's been a while since I've read a novel so good at uncomfortable psychological accuracy, dark humour and out and out horror. I loved it.’ – Jenn Ashworth, author of Ghosted; ‘Full of existential dread and sardonic humour, I enjoyed it immensely.’ – Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti; ‘A consuming exploration of the madness of love and its distortions of the lover and the loved. A literary debut that has so much to say.’ – Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual; ‘Fresh and compelling, this claustrophobic debut will suck you in and never spit you back out.’ – Eliza Clark, author of Boy Parts; ‘This quiet novel has a wonderfully dark and savage little heart. Not only did it move me, its horror still lingers. A fantastic debut.’ – Matt Wesolowski, author of Six Stories; ‘A genuinely original novel somewhere between horror and magic realism, enviably well written, it lingers deep in the mind.’ – Ramsey Campbell; ‘Uncomfortable and unnerving – the best kind of blackest comedy.’ – Aliya Whiteley, author of Skyward Inn

“Weird, innovative totally absorbing!”

Again a book like you have never read before. A tale of ostensibly a pretty ordinary girl. In reality a horror story which repels and fascinates. Definitely one for horror fans but also contributing to the feminist... More

“Absorbed Review”

Without wishing to be trite, Absorbed is, well, hugely absorbing. Written in the first person from Allison’s point of view, we’re very quickly shown the world from her perspective, and it’s a perspective that’s very... More
