“The story wasn’t holding my attention and I didn’t feel invested in any of the characters.”
~ Under the Covers
I had such high hopes for this book, I wanted a captivating mystery with a paranormal edge and The Cabin on Souder Hill seemed like it fit my requirements. That wasn’t the case. I ended up DNFing this book after about 50%, I had just lost all interest. The story wasn’t holding my attention and I didn’t feel invested in any of the characters.
Maybe it was the pacing, it was too slow and meandering to be considered exciting and nail-biting, which, I don’t mind if instead the story builds up slowly, ramping up the tension and atmosphere as it goes. But The Cabin on Souder Hill didn’t do that either. It just plodded along leaving me in its wake with absolutely no interest in seeing where it was meandering off to.
I can see how some readers may enjoy this slower paced style, with its cast of odd, not quite likable characters. I had almost a Twin Peaks style quirkiness to it, which normally I would appreciate, but in this case it just wasn’t doing it for me.
