“If You Go Down To The Woods” by Seth C. Adams

I’ve finished this book today. It’s meant to be scary and it was, but there was some funny lines in the book. I liked the occasional funny lines in the book despite that it was suppose to be scary. I think it added a little bit of something extra to the story. Anyway, I was not disappointed with this book. It’s one of those books that will keep you on the edge of your seat through the whole thing. If you are a fan of “IT” by Stephen King or “The Chalk Man” by C. J. Tudor or the “Stranger Things” tv show, you should check out this book.

Synopsis: We were so young when it all happened–just 13-year-olds making the most of the long, hot, lazy days of summer, thinking we had the world at our feet. That was us–me, Fat Bobby, Jim, and Tara–the four members of the Outsiders’ Club. The day we found a burnt-out car in the woods was the day everything changed. Cold, hard cash in the front seat and a body in the trunk. It started as a mystery we were desperate to solve. Then the Collector arrived. He knew we had found his secret, and suddenly, our summer of innocence turned into the stuff of nightmares.

  1. This sounds like my jam. I love teenagers getting a bigger bite that can chew and psychological thrillers like that and I think some humour can help the pace and break a bit the tension, so if it is clever and not forced I am sure it will make the tale even better.

    What I like of this premise is that it sounds like something that can happen, just coming across something like that because you are not in a densely populated area, finding something that seems ordinary and without realizing you have just stepped into a situation you can’t just turn back and pretend it didn’t happen.

    Just imagining how the different characters might react to the scenario of finding a lot of money and a dead guy.

    1. Yeah, it was an interesting story line, for sure. But the humor made it a little better. That’s something that I haven’t really come across when I’m reading. I think my hubby would have enjoyed that version of humor if he only enjoyed reading like I do.
