Publisher Description

 “A tremendous book―thought-provoking and terrifying, with tension that winds up like a chain. The Cabin at the End of the World is Tremblay’s personal best. It’s that good.”  — Stephen King

The Bram Stoker Award-winning author of A Head Full of Ghosts adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense that recalls Stephen King’s Misery, Ruth Ware’s In a Dark, Dark Wood, and Jack Ketchum’s cult hit The Girl Next Door.

Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, "None of what’s going to happen is your fault". Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: "Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world."

Thus begins an unbearably tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined. The Cabin at the End of the World is a masterpiece of terror and suspense from the fantastically fertile imagination of Paul Tremblay.

you gotta listen ,


Great read through the whole book. Only disappointment was the ending in my opinion. But we all differ and maybe everyone else will love the ending.

The first half of this book was pretty good. Kept me in suspense. But then, Later on, toward the end, it was really weird how he was writing. One of the main characters Sabrina, was talking to Andrew, Eric, and Leonard. She was explaining to them why she was doing what she did. But it seemed like it switched back and forth from her explaining, to the author himself taking over And narrating for her, to her again. It was very weird and didn’t make any sense. And it dragged on longer than it needed to. It got boring and was hard for me to finish. I’m kinda upset that I wasted $14 on this book. Don’t waste your $$ on it.

hoooooowweerrrr ,

not worth it

fairly interesting at first, but quickly unravels into an unoriginal bore.
