2013 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Finalist, Horror.
Christopher Ritchie shows he's a skilful writer, with his 'The ordinary' a 2015 IndieFab Awards SILVER WINNER.
A world where nothing is as it seems.
SURREY LIFE magazine: "This brain-twister of a novel, by horror author Christopher Ritchie, has won plenty of acclaim and deservedly so as he takes the reader on a frightening, disturbing journey that tests the imagination, pushing it beyond the limits of 'normal'.
When officer Joe Gullidge is sent on a routine police call, the situation rapidly descends into a sequence of horrifically unsettling events that eat into the very depths of his soul. As 'Gully' is dragged into a reluctant search for the truth, his conscious mind struggles to separate reality from the suggestion of a parallel world. Is Gully's journey a metaphor for the deeper reality of an inescapable past - or is the explanation more straightforward than it initially appears?
House of Pigs doesn't fall into the 'easy read' category given the complexity of its ideas and multiple layers of interpretation - but these are strengths not weaknesses. This is a grippingly surreal novel with an edgy narrative and visual touches reminiscent of Stephen King's The Shining."
Horror Novel Reviews: "Needs to be read to even begin to grasp Ritchie’s vision. His alternate worlds… may throw you for an entertaining loop."
Rebbie Reviews: "will horrify you with some really gritty and gory events… I love the imagery and the pace."
