 "A tremendous book―thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay's personal best. It's that good."  -- Stephen King The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King's Misery, Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum's cult hit The Girl Next Door. Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road. One afternoon, 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, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what's going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then 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." Thus 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 entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay. "Read Paul Tremblay's new novel, The Cabin at the End of the World, and you might not sleep for a week. Longer. It will shape your nightmares for months - that's pretty much guaranteed." -- NPR "Gripping, horrifying, and mesmerizing." -- GQ "A tour-de-force of psychological and religious horror." -- BN.com "A blinding tale of survival and sacrifice." -- Kirkus Reviews "Tremblay has a real winner here." -- Tor.com… (més)

This book was DARK. I devoured it though. I've seen others here complain about the pacing, and the repetition, but I think that's kind of the point? As humans living through modern society, we have to put up with a lot of terrible things going on around us. These terrible things get repeated, we have to try to ignore them and carry on with our day to day lives because otherwise how would we survive? The repetition in the storytelling is designed to try to break our characters, but also reflect the world we live in. My impression of this book, and I think the ending supports this impression, is that despite being presented with horrible choices at every turn, we still need to choose to love each other and support each other. One of the things I both love and hate about Paul Tremblay's books is that the supernatural, or the paranormal is never definitive. Its hinted at. It could be a paranormal occurrence. Or it could be this other logical explanation. Much like life, we never get all of the answers given to us wrapped up in a tidy package, with a cute bow on top. We just have to muddle along with the characters and make sense of it with the limited information available to us. I'm glad the book ended the way that it did, because everything before it was so bleak. The characters chose each other, instead of an easy way out, or leaving the other alone, and I felt like that was emotionally correct. ( )

Really wonderfully tense in the beginning, but then the verb tense and POV gets weird and inconsistent and all the tension leaks out. (Though I will give Tremblay credit for being a master of the vague/nothing burger ending - nothing is explained or answered but I felt that I understood enough not to be bothered.)

Also what's up with Tremblay and his repeated motif of little girls losing their innocence?

After three of his books, Paul Tremblay isn't for me. ( )

And I'm done. This book felt like it took forever to get through, but that was mostly due to all the goddamn padding of story that went nowhere.

And speaking of stories that go nowhere, at no point did any of the four just stop, take five minutes, and explain what it was specifically that not only initially convinced them to risk their lives to come to this spot, but also why they believe what they believe. At no point did Tremblay provide any motivation beyond, "I believe it." Lame.

The narrative voice was absolutely horrible. You were never given intimacy with any of the characters, each was held out at arm's length from the reader. And the dialogue was flat out deplorable. Stupendously long uninterrupted monologues. Repetition galore.

And, the ending was exactly what I predicted when the four of them finally got down to actually discussing what they were here for.

I still say Tremblay's Head Full of Ghosts was one of the best horror reads of last year, but this one is so goddamn bad, I'm honestly questioning if I missed some badness there, or Tremblay actually got someone else to write this particular stinker.

Honestly, had I known it was this awful, I wouldn't have read this novel if it was the last one in the last cabin at the end of the world.

And for those keeping score, of the five hotly anticipated books of this year, King disappointed me, Kepnes let me down, but Tremblay cratered. It's up to Marisha Pessl and King's second release of the year, but honestly, this is turning out to be a crap year for my go-to authors.

UPDATE: Of course this piece of crap won the Stoker Award. Apparently there was not one single horror novel that was better written, had a better plot, and actually took the time to say something.

I've been told that I "just didn't get" the novel.

I am officially inviting anyone who actually enjoyed this trainwreck to explain to me why you enjoyed it, and what I'm not "getting". ( )

Although this was way more grisly than I expected and the moral dilemma at the heart way less convincing or interesting than it should have been, Andrew, Eric, and Wen were such, such tender, endearing characters that I felt compelled to keep listening. Even though it is supposedly open-ended in that we don’t learn whether the apocalypse was real, that wasn’t really the point, and the important issue was resolved to my satisfaction at the end. ( )
  Charon07 | Jul 16, 2021 |
An interesting premise that doesn't quite come together as a story. Once you've got to the stand off between the cultists and the family and all the cards are on the table, where do you go from there? If the apocalyptic visions are true then obviously the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. If not, the family need to GTFO. If you're not going to say either way, and particularly if you're going to present the story from multiple points of view, there's nothing for the reader to grab onto and you never quite have that investment that you need in where it's all going. I didn't anyway. ( )

Then back in the ground / We look at our hands / And wonder aloud / Could anyone choose to die / In the end everybody wins / In the end everybody wins --Future of the Left, "The Hope That House Built"

Meanwhile, planes drop from the sky / People disappear and bullets fly... Wouldn't be surprised if they have their way / (Tastes just like chicken they say.) --Clutch, "Animal Farm"

...because when the blanket of death came for us we kicked it off and were left naked and shivering in the world. --Nadia Bulkin, "Seven Minutes in Heaven," She Said Destory
