The Cabin at the End of the World
The Cabin at the End of the World: A Novel | Paul Tremblay
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.

Wow. This is good. It‘s TERRIFYING. (Although I‘ll admit that I‘m a scaredy-cat.) It‘s so good though, because every little detail in here is symbolic or builds on future chapters. Nothing is wasted.

There are additional spoilery liner notes at the end to be read AFTER finishing that are 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻!! Holy Batman good. These notes make me want to read again with all the cool stuff Tremblay shared.

Hmm. I don't know about this one. Very strange and I'm not sure I mean that in a good way. I think I was expecting more of a horror-esque/slasher story and I was let down by where the story went and how it ended. It was an easy read, written well, but left me befuttled and disappointed.

The premise is great, and I liked the changing POVs up until the last section where the chapters would be written in two different POVs at the same time (cool experiment but not my cup of tea). I was surprised and then delighted that the plot that I thought was only going to last for the first section actually went to the end of the book and didn't result in pacing issues. Also, shoutout to the ambiguous ending.

readordierachel I liked this one too. So tense! 4mo
Chazlyn @readordierachel The pacing was so good! I was convinced there was no way the whole book could be the standoff in the cabin - was so happy to be wrong! 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2
I finished this book last night. Andrew and Eric and their daughter, Wen, go to Vermont to spend a week unplugged from life but their vacation is interrupted when four strangers show up with homemade weapons. It‘s been a long time since I‘ve read a book that pulled me in like this one and had me thinking about the story and the characters when I wasn‘t reading. The ending fell flat for me, otherwise it would have been a four star book.

I thought this would be one of my favorite suspense books this year. Instead, it receives a rare pan. The characters were okay, the premise was interesting and promising. But it was like being stuck in a room listening to the same conversation for 8.5 hours. Maybe that was supposed to be the hell of it. The story just didn‘t go anywhere for me, and it wasn‘t suspenseful or scary or even creepy. I kept waiting for the big moment. It didn‘t come.

1. It was a good book but there was an event in the book that made me want to throw it across the room.

2. Eat at home but every once in a while we treat ourselves by dining out!

3. When I was 5 or 6, the back of my dress got tucked into my underpants and boys outside the restroom noticed before I did. 😳

4. Honeysuckle. Apples baking. My daughter's hair. Fresh cut lumber.

5. Black Moloka'i

I had a he'd time really getting into this book. I didn't find it particularly suspenseful or scary, and while the writing was good for the most part, there were times where it seemed like the author just wanted to show off how many words he knows and things that could have been written in a sentence or paragraph instead took up a page (or pages). The overall story idea is a good one, I just feel it could have been executed better.

This was almost a so-so for me... It's like a 70s slasher movie where you've got little backstory, there's a decent amount of gore and psychological tension and nothing really gets resolved. It's the apocalypse and sacrifices must be made. That's your basic plot, then chaos ensues.
Go for print on this because the narrator really didn't get the right tone for the tense scenes and was just so apathetic. Parents should take heed especially, though.

Ingerella Glad you thought this was a pick. I just bought this one recently. 6mo
IamIamIam @Ingerella It was interesting and more of reality based horror than the apocalyptic side. It shows how vulnerable you can be both mentally and physically and I really enjoyed that aspect of it. This would be a great book club or buddy read pick because it needs to be discussed. 😄 6mo
Ingerella Ooh! I have my in person book club this weekend and we're supposed to come with a book suggestion. Maybe I'll suggest this one! 6mo
Tamra You stuck it out! 6mo
IamIamIam @Tamra I did!! The gore wasn't terrible and the horrid narrator made it a lot easier to take the blows. I didn't hate it but it was all tension and very little plot development. Win some, lose some! Lol 6mo

I didn't really like this book at all. I have read some scary books and this one was not that scary to me. I listened to the audio and it was during the day and maybe if I was home alone and it was at night then I would have been more nervous. So, if you read this one and you were scared then I would say, "Good for you!" I just thought the whole story was rather strange. But I guess that's why they have so many flavors of ice cream!

rajithr I think the story is as scary as what is happening in the US Mexico border these days.. 8mo

This was an intense apocalyptic horror/thriller, with very human, sometimes-sympathetic ‘monsters‘. Tremblay again pens a very original story that moves along at a good clip. I read a lot less horror these days, but I‘m glad I read this.

Eric, Andrew, and their 7-year-old daughter are vacationing in a secluded cabin when 4 strangers arrive and present them with an impossible choice.

If you have any interest in reading horror that will emotionally destroy you, this book should rocket to the top of your list. It is exceptionally crafted, with characters that feel real and a threat beyond imagining.

Go in knowing as little as possible and buckle up.

Reggie Oh, Tobey. And you have kids. Ughhh Wen😭😭😭😭😭😭. It still comes up on me whenever somebody mentions this book. Right from the beginning when she was using her curved foot as a scythe to hunt for grasshoppers, I was hooked. And then Paul destroyed me. Sooo good. 😭 9mo

rohit-sawant 'Emotionally destroy' is right! I recall just sitting in a bubble of quiet after I turned the last page. 9mo
