Off Season by Jack Ketchum (Book Review)

Off Season (Dead River, #1)Off Season by Jack Ketchum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Off Season is brutal, horrific, thrilling, and gut-wrenching.

It is no secret that Jack Ketchum made horror novels for people who enjoy great writing, and for people that love horror movies. Even though I was reading some pretty gnarly death scenes and vivid details about people being cannibalized, I just couldn't stop reading. It's one of those stories in which you just have to know what happens next no matter how intense and crazy it may be.

Off Season is about an editor from New York who decides to do some editing and vacationing in a remote cabin during offseason in Dead River, where she will be joined by her sister and her friends. A nearby family of animalistic cannibals who live nearby have new game to hunt.

Jack Ketchum was a writer who pulled you in for a story and kept you wanting more; the edge of your set, ears perked up, distractions non-existent, and imagination running wild with the shock and horrible things that go on in these stories of his. Off Season is without a doubt a very brutal, gory, and, at sometimes, hard to read story but you just can't help to read it because you end up so engaged into what is going on.

This book is not for the faint of heart, people who dislike horror movies, or people who will get upset easily with murder. Read at your own risk!
