Now in mass-market paperback from the national bestselling author of The Troopwhich Stephen King raved scared the hell out of me and I couldnt put it down.old-school horror at its bestan utterly terrifying novel that pits the mysteries of The Abyss against the horrors of The Shining. A strange plague called the Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forgetsmall things at first, like where they left their keysthen the not-so-small things like how to drive, or the letters of the alphabet. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarilyand there is no cure. But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Mariana Trench, an heretofore unknown substance hailed as ambrosiaa universal healer, from initial reportshas been discovered. It may just be the key to eradicating the Gets. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste, has been built eight miles under the seas surface. But when the station goes incommunicado, a brave few descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depthsand perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine. Fans of unflinching bleakness and all-out horror will love this novel.Each new shock is freshly disturbing (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Since yesterday didn't allow for too much posting, I will annoy you with it all today! Need my #teamslaughter points!

#chillingphotochallenge #scarathlon day 19 No book has ever made me gag before. But that one particularly #gory scene... 🤮 This book became an instant favorite in that moment.

I mean, Clive Barker says it was utterly terrifying, so you know it's gonna be crazy! @Clwojick

🎧 I feel I should have read this one. The flashbacks made the audio feel disjointed or maybe I‘m having difficulty focusing? The book is great. It reminds me of the way King can scare you by taking you back to your childhood! It‘s a cross between The Abyss, The Shining and The Thing. Gross, scary, creepy. I wish they had talked more about The medical reason LUKE went down to the bottom of the trench. All in all a good horror book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A fun Sci-Fi/Horror, but it left me wanting more. Despite hearing that this book was terrifying, I didn't find it to be scary at all. I suppose it just didn't hit any of my triggers. Definitely now what I was hoping it would be.

Uh...you just lost me, Mr. Cutter. ?

Extinction Kit? Really? I've been in the vet field for 22 years, and I've never once heard of Euthasol being packaged this way. And, perhaps a little research on dosing of Euthasol would have been a good thing. While 2.5cc is certainly more than enough for a Guinea Pig, it's definitely not enough to "flatline a Great Dane." #factcheck

Inaccurate information like this just completely rips me out of a story.

A coworker once told me that she had to pull over while listening to this while driving just to collect herself. She said it was the scariest book she'd ever read. I immediately ordered it from #thriftbooks, but it has been sitting on my bookshelf for several months. I think today is a good day to finally get started. #horror #creepy #scarybook 😱

Well. That was deeply unsettling. Get it.😉Not for the faint hearted, the claustrophobic or the weak of stomach, especially if detailed descriptions of maggots, mutations & multiple eyeballs opening up on faces disturb you! Luke is sent down to a deep water lab in the Mariana Trench after all contact with it goes dark. What‘s waiting is far worse than the disease his brother was trying to cure. #SummersEndReadathon #HSreadathon #MountTBR2019

cherinium I recently got a copy of this from Thriftbooks. A former coworker had told me this was the most terrifying book she had ever read, and she's a big horror fan. Of course that piqued my interest. I've yet to crack it open, but look forward to seeing if it is as frightening as she says. 3mo

With a last minute vote pulling it over the finish line, my 8th book of the #SummersEndReadathon & the 26th book of the #HSreadathon is a novel described as terrifying, chilling & “scary as f**k”. And I‘m sitting alone, in my library at 3.30am in the morning.😳 Thanks guys.

“It was not as big as its brothers and sisters, and it looked very different indeed. It‘s head was that of a bee, though it‘s eyes were a bright and fiery red. It‘s abdomen was flesh tones - it looked like a severed fingertip - banded with angry red slashes. It‘s stinger was a cruel spike, dripping venom that sizzled on my skin.”

This book scratched the spot for isolation horror that‘s been itching! The descriptions were rich, but not overwhelming. The characters were deep and Luke was so easy to identify with. It‘s been likened to Event Horizon meets The Abyss and I couldn‘t say it better myself!

I liked this book WAY more than I anticipated and powered my way through. Compelling, gory, and such amazing suspense. This #lmpbc pick was perfect for #GroupHorror! I know this is super early but I‘ll probably send it along next week so I make sure to not forget. One of the few five star horror reads I‘ve had in a long time. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A dark and disturbing look at what lies in the deep. This book started out a bit slow and derivative. I kept being pulled out of the story...”oh, that reminds me of”...now, back to the story. But the book eventually came into its own and made it a pick. I will never be able to look at guinea pigs the same way ever again (See my post for #QuotsyDec18 | 7: #Magnetic ). And the bees, oh, the bees.

I have no problem bailing on books that don‘t work for me, so I don‘t know why I continued on with this one even though I pretty much hated it 🤷🏻‍♀️ Since I forced my way to the end, The Deep is my #worstread of 2018.

This scene from The Deep is quite possibly one of the most disgusting scene I've ever read. From the couple of books of his I've read, I can safely say, Nick Cutter does gross well. The last few pages leading up to this one are no exception, they absolutely made me gag. Not even Clive Barker's work has done that to me! This is an excellent book, horror fans should get a hold of it.

My attention span has been absolute trash lately. Focus is not my friend. I've jumped from book to book to book and scarcely finished a thing recently. So after an extended hiatus from The Deep, I've decided to try to finish it this weekend. It's an excellent book, and I've only got 120 pages left. That SHOULD be achievable. I hate when my reading habits become so fickle.

Anyone else in a slump?

1. My Hero Academia is my adaptation obsession of recent.
2. Swoon Carrot Cake or Ben&Jerry's Pecan Sticky Bun.
3. Not Halloween themed, no. But classified as horror, yes. (Tagged book)
4. Depends on how busy we are. Usually once every other week we'll go through Taco Bell because it's cheap enough to feed my crew.
5. Best, trip to Arizona. Worst, it was for work.

This book is TERRIFYING. The setting is everything- at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, 8 miles below the surface. I actually felt claustrophobic at times and had to finish it during the day 😂. The way Cutter builds the tension and describes the setting makes the creepy factor even higher. A great pick for horror fans, and was a perfect read to kick off my #spookyreads2018 - 4 👻👻👻👻

I knew it would be graphic given the goriness of The Troop. I was really enthralled at the beginning and there were some great cerebral moments but it did start to get tiresome by the end. Definitely skipped the pages about LB‘s fate. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018

Creepy and claustrophobic. Even more so in audio! I wasn't completely sold on the ending but the first half was good and I loved LB (the dog). My first Nick Cutter, and I think I'll check out The Troop next.

RadicalReader @Jovy I had heard wonderful praise for the troop and love how much more creepy and sinister thrillers are when they‘re listened to as audiobooks 1y
Jovy @RadicalReader The Troop in audio isn‘t in my local library so I‘m going paperback. But yes, I prefer horror and mysteries in audio for the extra chills! 1y

This guy writes spooky very well. The ending fell a little flat with me but I think maybe the author just backed himself into a corner a little bit. Actually, I can think of several flaws but the author captures something magical with his descriptions of enclosing madness. I just wish the novel was a little longer, maybe a better ending. The last 50 pages were a little meh. Overall though, I‘d recommend it!

Stephen King book recommendations do not disappoint! This was my first time reading the fantastic, Nick Cutter and I am a fan.

A bit of a slow start getting into this book, but really great. Some scary moment - making me remember The Shining and the dreaded second floor room.

Latest library haul. I picked up What if Earth Had Two Moons, How to Build a Dinosaur, and The Deep. The librarian noted that the collection seemed “eclectic”. Seems like a nice way to say weird. I can‘t be the only 35 year old woman into space, dinosaurs, and horror. Right?

There are many types of horror stories, but to me at least, the best (or should I say "the worst"?) are the ones that make you feel hopeless before a desperate situation. That's the kind of book The Deep is. And, after reading (and enjoying) two of his books, I will surely be looking for more from Nick Cutter. #thedeep #nickcutter #horror
