Quick Review: In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

No wonder this was going to be adopted into a movie because it really reads like a movie. The descriptions of the glass house in the dark, dark wood, the distinct personalities of the characters who decided to agree to attend the hen party, the games, the weirdness (especially of Flo), and the slight creepiness (thanks to the Ouija although I beg to disagree with Ms. Witherspoon because I was prepared to be really scared and I wasn’t). The elements have been designed to bring the book to the big screen and I guess that makes Ms. Ruth Ware a good writer to be able to achieve that.

I couldn’t completely say that I was impressed though or that I found the plot unique or that the reveal shocking. I honestly wasn’t surprised to learn which one of them is the murderer, and yet I still found the entire read very entertaining and engaging because the writing is well done. I would definitely watch the movie when it’s out and will definitely check out the rest of the author’s books.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
