A young family is driving home one night but is forced off the highway by a blizzard. They arrive in the former mining town of Good Night, Idaho, and take shelter in a grand but dilapidated old hotel.
When they become separated, they enter a nightmare in which they relive the same day over and over, each caught in their own separate time loop. But what are the mysterious images that haunt them, and can they change what is past?
Dreary and long-winded. Because the main characters spend most of the book separated the narrative heavily focuses on internal monologues which make the book feel very slow and laborious. Also the "rules" of the alternate universe are not adequately explained, so it's difficult to invest in the events and by the time you get to the end you're still not quite sure what happened or why. Wish I hadn't wasted my time listening.
I got that the family gets lost in a nightmare hotel and relives the days a la Groundhog Day, but it wasn't the same day. Different stuff happened and other characters were introduced and I'm not sure who they were meant to be. Too complicated.
