This is my second time reading Tim Meyer. The first being Sharkwater Beach. This story is different than that one. Both are equally enjoyable, though. Tim Meyer has a lot of range in the horror genre.
The Thin Veil is a great novella. Tim Meyer has a bright future in horror. I typically give a book 20 pages to intrigue me. This book caught my interest from the beginning and it kept me intrigued throughout.
Strange things start happening in Pleasantville, New Jersey. People start getting sick. Weird noises are heard in homes across Pleasantville. People start talking in unknown languages. People are acting weird. There are black butterflies and a green pulsating light shining through the cracks in the walls. The people of Pleasantville have developed a most unquenchable hunger and they only have an appetite for children. The children seem to taste better when they scream.
I enjoyed this novella. The Thin Veil grossed me out. I retched more than once while reading this book. The Thin Veil is a quick read with a solid storyline. The characters are believable, too. If you dig Invasion of the Body Snatchers, then you will dig The Thin Veil.
I also enjoyed Purple Cheese and No Makeup.
4/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
