This fantastic novel is only .99 today in the U.S. here: The Hole
When a hole opens up in the rich area of town, people are intrigued but not scared. When the humming starts and everyone's nose begins to bleed, people DO get scared. And rightfully so.
I just loved this fast paced, original story. A couple of the characters were quite memorable and realistic. (I think every small town has an Ellen.)There are some seriously horrific scenes and the tension level stayed high throughout the book. By the time I was done I needed a muscle relaxer because I was so tense. It's true. I have found very few authors who can create that level of tension and sustain it the entire way. I'm impressed!
I've read a few of Mr. Meikle's creature features and I've loved them. This was my first novel by him, but it certainly won't be the last. If you're looking for a unique read with some memorable characters and scary scenes, choose The Hole. Treat yourself to some fun! Highly recommended!
