This book was an anomaly for me; I didn’t particularly like it, but I couldn’t put it down. I suppose that throughout, right up to the end, it showed enough promise that I stayed with it, but ultimately it just never resonated with me. There’s a great premise here, actually maybe a few, from the Saw-like set-up where the protagonist wakes up in a dark room with no idea where he is or what’s happening other than sharing said room with a dead body and a typewriter (oh, and a black widow, which was one of the strangest yet more entertaining subplots here) to the all-too-easy incarnation of a new religion/cult, but despite Wilson’s almost consistently solid writing, it never clicked into place and the ending felt slightly contrived. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC, not a bad book in any way, shape, or form, just not quite a great one.
