The Troop

The Troop - Nick Cutter Reseña en español en mi blog: Click Aquí

Everyone says (Stephen King included) that this book is scary: they are right,The Troop is probably the most disturbing book I've ever read. Five boy scouts and their Scout-Leader are isolated in an island with something that is really hungry and will eat anything ...

The story is extremely well written: short and fast paced chapters. The character development is reached through flashbacks of the characters and documents placed between chapters. This documents are evidence logs, interviews and newspaper articles that provide background information of the characters and, some times, anticipate what is going to happen next.

If you like old-school horror stories you'll probably enjoy this book,it reminded me some of Stephen King's earlier works.
