I do think it could have done with a bit more mystery to build the suspense, but it was still overall a very enjoyable read. The art, while nothing to write home about, was also decent. The whole time I was thinking how this would be a great tv show on a platform where they could go gory, because the whole time I was also thinking, "this is House on Haunted Hill in an amusement park with teenagers!" (I initially expected it to turn out more like The Hunger Games, which is kind of starts out as, but it is definitely more House of Haunted Hill (1999)!) The writing was a little wonky for me from the very start, but I was intrigued to see where it was going regardless.Guaranteed to be THE book of the summer. Cinematic in scope, breathless in suspense, this book is a rollercoaster of pitch-perfect horror. Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear and Good Rich People The challenge is simple. All fourteen competitors must spend seven days hiding in an abandoned amusement park from dawn to dusk. There’s only one rule: Don’t get caught.

Shoutout to NetGalley and Ten Speed Press for this ARC! I was so excited to see that Hide by Kiersten White was becoming a graphic novel. I think it is such a good book for this medium. I read Hide as an ARC in 2021 and I absolutely could not put it down. This adaptation was no different. The concept of a game of hide and seek in an abandoned amusement park is already fascinating, but add in potential paranormal events and people who are desperate to win the cash prize, you have yourself a good horror. I own and have read most of Kiersten White's work. Though I do have a copy of Hide, I haven't read it yet, so I was hoping the graphic novel adaptation would get me hyped to bump it up a bit sooner on my list.

Read Hide by Kiersten White

Two narrators, a kaleidoscope of time snippets, the distortions of lies, memories, and precognition—White’s paranormal thriller is a tour de force of perspective and unreliability.

People pretend things aren’t wrong, even when they can feel the truth, because they’re too afraid of what it means to look right at the horror, right at the wrongness, to face the truth in all its terrible glory. Like little kids, playing hide-and-seek. If they can’t see the monster, it can’t get them. But it can. It always can. And while you aren’t looking, it’s eating everyone around you.” What if Vlad Tepes, the historical inspiration for Dracula, had actually been a fearsome and brilliant teenage girl? That’s the question raised in this alternate history, first in a trilogy. Set in Continue reading »

From way too many references of peeing and two main characters with the exact same name, this was one confusing mess with way too many characters. I didn’t like any of them and even found the main protagonist annoying. This probably would have been better if it trimmed down some of these characters to make them memorable. I read the original version of Hide last year when it released, and while I enjoyed it, I remember thinking it had a lot of facets that didn't translate well to a written novel and would have worked better in a visual medium, like a film or mini-series—or, lo and behold, a graphic novel! A marvelously creepy thrill ride of a book that keeps twisting until the very end.” —Karen M. McManus, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying
