Arrow My Review of The Troop by Nick Cutter



Let me first say that this book is by no means for the squeamish. It is very descriptively gory. It will make you lose your appetite for sure.

Now, I did enjoy the book, but one thing was missing for me. Terror. Right on the cover of the novel, it states that this is a novel of terror. Where was it? Now, don't get me wrong, this book will leave you with deep feelings of dread and will make your skin crawl whilst reading it. This is mainly thanks to the very detail orientated descriptions by Mr. Cutter. However, I did not find myself agreeing on what Stephen King writes on the cover. This one by no means scared the heck out of me.

I will say that this one really flows well and once you start reading it, the gruesomeness that the novel presents is unwilling captivating. You will have a hard time putting this one down.

So, after much thought, I'm giving this one 4 out of 5 stars. It would've gotten the 5 stars if it weren't so misleading, at least IMO, but the caption declearing this a novel of terror.

Hmm...I've been on the fence about reading this book for a while. I'm completely engrossed in the A Song of Ice and Fire series though, and I like to focus on one series at a time for the most part, so this will be put on my "To Read Later" list.

Thanks for the review.
