Overview

The San Francisco Chronicle declared him "one of the most brilliant writers to ever come out of Ireland," and Neil Jordan called Winterwood "the most terrifying book Ive ever read." In this chilling and unforgettable novel, Patrick McCabe shows us that nothing-and no one-is ever quite what they seem. Shortlisted for the Irish Book Award for Novel of the Year, Winterwood is a disturbing tale of love, death, and identity from a masterful novelist whose "books are skillful exercises in the macabre and the horrific. It is as though Stephen King had learned how to write" (New York Review of Books).

The New York Times Book Review says of this book, 'a Gothic ghost story... like Stephen King'. I am sorry but this can't hold a candle to King's weakest work 'if there was one'. I picked up this book because of this review. It is not what you would expect. I unfortunately stuck with it until the bitter end waiting for something, anything to happen. It is a drab, cold and bitter story. Maybe this passes for good literature in Ireland? Not recommended.
