Contemporary horror with a supernatural twist. The Well is a horrifying blend of supernatural evil and the darker side of human nature. Peter Labrow weaves a tortured tale of horrors, past and present, that entangle and ensnare both victim and malefactor. The lives of multiple characters are entwined in this realistic, emotional story. Labrow presents flawed characters that are at once identifiable and believable. These are characters that readers can have strong feeling for. I found myself tensely rooting for the survival of some characters and vehemently wishing for the demise of others. If you are looking for a haunting tale of horror that delves deep into human motivations (sex/pleasure, survival/self preservation...), then this is the book for you. A dark work that will appeal to fans of psychological and supernatural horror.
I recommend The Well to readers of contemporary, psychological, and supernatural horror.
Sensitive reader warning: sexual situations, sexual predation of minors, language, death and violence.
