Novella in which a “moderately unsuccessful” TV writer wakes up the morning after Christmas to find his wife and daughter missing—and then, it turns out, everyone is missing. In that loneliness he confronts who he is and whether he wants to be that person. It didn’t grab me as much as the best of his writing does, but it was a solid “the fantastic reveals our true natures” story.

This book gripped me from the very beginning, despite the fact that the pacing is quite slow. This is not a fast-paced, thrill-a-minute kind of story. It takes its time, more of a controlled burn, slow build psychological type of horror as you (and the characters) imagine a million terrible things that could happen as events progress.

I will say, the humour surprised me. There were genuine laugh-out-loud moments, small observations or bits of banter that struck me as hilarious just as the tension was ratcheting up. The break was welcome, and added to my enjoyment of the story.

I liked Nolan a lot, and I'd love to read more books with him as the central character. He's funny, self-deprecating, smart, and genuinely likeable. The other characters were well developed as well; I warmed up to Ken even though I hadn't expected to, and I liked Molly and Pierre quite a bit as well.

I'm keeping fingers crossed that this will be turned into a movie. It would make a spectacular blockbuster!

This is a very strange book, not only because of the absolutely weird setting but also because of the story telling. I think I have never read a book in which the narrator was actively holding back information and telling me things that turned out not to be true. This made the book seem a little "alive" and made the mystery very interesting.
I wasn't really into the book at first, even though I really liked the writing style, but when the story started heating up I was hooked and read through to the end in one go.… (mais)
