Review : In a dark, dark wood by Ruth Ware 

In a dark, dark wood
Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back. 
There was a dark, dark house
Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?
And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room
But something goes wrong. Very wrong.
And in the dark, dark room…. 
Some things can’t stay secret for ever. 

I enjoy In A Dark, Dark Wood for most of it, but there’s a couple of things that really annoyed me. First, the story was okay. I found it overall really predictable. From the first chapter, when Nora is running out of the wood thinking about a guy named James, you kind of know what is about to happenned. There’s no creepy in this story too, i was expecting a creepy vibe after reading the description and seeing the cover, but nop. Nothing spooky. which was a bit dissapointing. The begining was slow, and there was some parts of the story that didn’t really add anything. The second half wasn’t so slow, more interesting and fast-paced. The characters were pretty much forgetable. I liked Nora at first, but the fact that she is still addicted to her old boyfriend, who she dated for 6 months when she was 16….ten years ago. Yup. Nora is still not over him, ten years later. This just annoyed me. So much. I wanted to roll my eyes everytime she started thinking/talking about him. It’s just ridiculous. The writing style was pretty good. I liked it alot. 

Overall, this was an okay book, nothing crazy or incredible but entertaining enough for me to keep reading.

In a Dark, Dark Wood : 3/5
