Book Review: The Ruins

I just finished reading The Ruins by Scott Smith. This is a well written, fast paced horror novel and oh, yes it is a horror novel in every since of the word. A group of college students are having the time of their life during a vacation in Cancun.

They’re making new friends; partying hard and God help them, feeling invincible. When the brother of one of their new friends goes missing, they agree to help find him. This one decision will launch them down a path that will lead them --implacably, inexorably-- to a mysterious clearing, home of ruins guarded by Mayans and the ancient evil that awaits them there.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a suspenseful read. With its haunting images, well developed characters and well placed surprises, this is one of the best books I’ve read all year.

Rating: 5 Stars

It seems that in movies and books out tastes run somewhat close. After this review I will definitely have to read this. I love stocking up on books of this nature this time of year anyways since fall is coming.

I hope you have a good day!
