I’ve had this book on my Kindle for...well, ages. Aaaaand...it was quite good. Trust me, I was very surprised. It was so engaging, I read late into the night and finished it the same day I started.
The story reads like a typical low-budget slasher movie script (and I can’t stand slasher movies) and the ending was most likely inspired by the blockbuster movie, The Sixth Sense. Even so, apart from the blood, gore, the crude language, and cardboard characters, I had a blast reading this story. There are some seriously creepy and twisted characters in this book, and that’s excluding the killer. The plot is driven by suspense, and the never-ending rain (in the story) added a sense of doom and despair; exactly as the author intended.
Overall, Truck Stop won’t be winning any major literary prizes, but it ensured that I’ll definitely be reading more by this author.
