    Description

    A compelling, eerie new audiobook from the internationally best-selling author of Let the Right One In.

    Four families wake up one morning in their trailer on an ordinary campsite. However, during the night, something strange has happened. Everything outside the camping grounds has disappeared, and the world has been transformed into an endless expanse of grass. The sky is blue, but there is no sign of the sun; there are no trees, no flowers, no birds. And every radio plays nothing but the songs of '60s pop icon Peter Himmelstrand.  

    As the holiday-makers try to come to terms with what has happened, they are forced to confront their deepest fears and secret desires. Past events that each of them has tried to bury rise to the surface and take on terrifying physical forms. Can any of them find a way back to reality?

    Commentaires

    "At the top of his game, Lindqvist gives Stephen King and John Saul at their best a run for the money." (Library Journal (starred))

    "Dubbed the Stephen King of Sweden, Lindqvist lives up to the billing." (New York Post)

    A masterpiece of surrealist horror

    This is the second title I have read by Mr. Lindqvist. Let Me In was the first, and after that Lindqvist had my complete and utter trust, so I was not put off by the middling reviews here and plunged right into this novel. I was not disappointed. It is a slow burn to be sure, but not a word is wasted in its depiction of fascinating characters with rich and tragic backstories, and the strange and completely original nightmare they find themselves in. There are no easy answers about how they have found themselves in their desperate situation, nor for the mechanics of this new terrible world, but there are just enough breadcrumbs to savor and reflect upon as you are taken through a wild and nailbiting existential ride. There were several instances where I had to pause the story and digest the next bleak turn of events, and at least one part towards the end where I felt I might not be able to take it anymore. But I'm glad I stuck with it, as things don't go quite as poorly as I feared. There are certainly lighter moments, especially the sections where the story is told from the perspective of a dog, As the story shifts from character to character, your investment in them and their predicament grows, and each development is felt viscerally. Kudos to the narrator for clearly delineating each character's voice and attitude.

    Incredible

    This book is so incredible, parts of it so beautifully detailed I feel like I am there, and then parts so devastating and painful, I can barely stand to listen. How fantastic.

    WOW! Five stars all around!!!

    Okay this book was incredible. Genuinely I think it has to be one of my favorite ever. I was so confused in the best way. I'm still confused?? But not mad about it. The author creates such a picture in my mind with the way he writes. I was dying to get this book finished to figure out what was going on, but sad to be done with it. The characters are all so dynamic and my favorite part was the flashbacks to their past- getting to understand who they really are and learning the things that they have done or had happen to them. I can't wait to get into some of John Lindqvist's other books! FIVE. STARS. !!!!

    Liked it but confused

    Lindquist has an interesting style. I like his development of characters but I had problems connecting the dots. I never really understood what was happening in the end but still worth a listen. When you figure it out let me know!

    I got bored

    I got bored a little way in and returned the book. It's very difficult to tell the male characters apart as it is narrated.

    Existential Horror

    With a purposefully vague narrative, I can't stop looking for answers in this horrific story.

    A Work of Art!

    Loved this book. Very creative and surreal. I admire Lindqvist for bringing this world into reality in a way that I haven't seen before. This work is true artistry in my opinion. This is art, creativity, conceptual ideology, interpretation of that which cannot be known. My new favorite book, along with Let The Right One In. Thank you Lindqvist, for this beautiful work you brought forth, in all of its originality.

    Couldn't finish it

    Bunch of people in an unknown situation, having flashbacks to bad times in their lives as they try to figure out what's going on. That's it... not much else beyond descriptions of terrible outcomes and veiled references to reincarnation. Horror has to have some kind of progression or impact to be effective and after chapters and chapters of not much happening, with occasional stings which lose flavor over time, the sheer banality of it puts one to sleep.

    What the hell?

    Don’t even get this. I feel like the plot was a once-interesting idea and the author just gave up on developing it. They never really explained why all of this was happening. It’s just way too weird with no reason for it.
