In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

STATUS:  Should have put down

Never judge a book by its cover.  I did with this one and have learnt my lesson – again.  It’s not that it’s appalling, it’s that it’s silly.  A hen night in a woods in a posh cabin.  A misfit bunch of girls and their token gay friend.  Cue suspense because one of the girls had an argument with the bride-to-be a few years ago.  Deliberations over whether to go to the cabin in the unusually darker-than-the-average wood follow.  Obviously, our protagonist decides to go and face her past with the bride.  Oh, it’s just so tedious.  Any attempt at creating a bit of suspense is lost when you remind yourself of the petty plot revolving around petty girls and their gay friend.  This is a predictable, childish and dull read.
