DOLL HOUSE by John Hunt
Publisher: Black Rose Writing
Publication Date: January 2017
This was my first time reading John Hunt. I really enjoyed this experience. This one was a wild ride that felt real. The cover really caught my eye, but the story kept me reading.
This one kind of rubbed me the wrong way. It is really creepy and disturbing in that it could happen to anyone in real life kind of way. Everything was going well for Olivia. She was about to go to university, and live on her own for the first time. She was looking forward to the full college experience, but one night she is taken by two masked men. She was put in a pink cell–a room built for a doll. Olivia is part of their doll collection now.
This is very much a tale of abduction, but it's so much more than that. It's a tale of survival with a strong female lead. This book looks at abduction and the aftermath that follows a survivor. Suspects are found and questioned. What if they catch the wrong guy? What if the abductor is still out there?
The abductors are creepy. The female lead, Olivia, is a great character. She reminded me of Jamie Lee Curtis. John Hunt does a great job with the final girl scenario. He takes it one step further to show the reader what the final girl goes through after surviving a horrific event.
This book is good. The story is fluid. The characters are believable. The dialogue is good. The ending is everything. This book reads like a movie. I would read this book again.
5/5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
