 I was utterly transfixed by this book. I'd put it off for so long because "house invasion thriller" isn't my favourite subgenre but Cabin has a twist to it that makes the story so fascinating, the characters are incredible, the way it's written is fantastic... and the way he plays with ambiguity, holy hell. Chef's kiss. I *still* don't know what happened and I'm GLAD about it!! There were a few lines I highlighted just because they had me going, "Wow... what a line." Sheesh. Well now I need to obtain more Tremblay books, I guess. I've certainly got Horror Movie, his 2024 release, on preorder already.
