Waterstones Says

An exercise in extreme narrative tension, The Cabin at the End of the World throws a quartet of highly disquieting strangers into the harmonious world of young Wen and her two fathers, and forces them to make a horrifying choice. Brittle, taut and claustrophobic, Tremblay’s pitch perfect prose serves up one of the most distinctive horror novels in years.

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake, with their closest neighbours more than two miles in either direction.

As Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young and friendly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologises and tells Wen, "None of what's going to happen is your fault".

Three more strangers arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out, "Your dads won't want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world."

So begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are intertwined.

“Got the audiobook - if I wanted to listen to a group of people argue about religion for over 7 hours, I would attend family Christmas dinners”

This was slow & dull. Kept expecting the author to pull it out of the bag at the end (like he had done in Head Full of Ghosts) but had essentially just listened to a religious moral debate for over 7 hours.... More

Just about as tense as it gets…

‘The Cabin at the End of the World’ takes tension to a whole new level! I was white knuckled as I read this book, gripping it for dear life as I was dragged into the world of Wen and... More

“Tense and gripping”

Paul Tremblay's second novel-A Head Full of Ghosts-is one of my favourite horror books, so I was incredibly excited to read this, and I loved it.

The premise is so chilling- 4 strangers armed with unidentifiable... More
