“The Dry” by Rebecca Nolen is quite the surprising treat! The book gripped me almost instantly and it wasn’t long before I experienced the familiar pangs of fear in my gut. The tale of Elliot and his search for his missing father is woven beautifully and kept me hooked. The writing style is fast-paced and easy to keep up with. Nolen gives just enough detail to keep the reader satisfied without overburdening the narrative. There are little spooks and creeps scattered throughout, but when the action gets going, it really gets going! I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys thriller and horror.
