In the run-up to the next ‘Scardiff’ horror expo, I’ve just
read and reviewed Adam Nevill’s novel ‘The Ritual’ (2011).This really is a book of two halves. An incredible first half – packed with
atmosphere, horror and suspense.Followed
on by a strange ‘Black Metal’ influenced latter half – which just feels completely
out of place with the earlier portion of the book.
Strange, and ultimately a little disappointing.But nevertheless well worth a read.
