Review: The Chosen Routes

The Chosen Routes The Chosen Routes by Matt Shaw
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review of THE CHOSEN ROUTES by Matt Shaw

The more I read by this prolific author, the more I am impressed. This story is horror, yes; Supernatural, yes; a thriller, yes. Character exposition is excellent, yes. But as well as being scared (yes), I am most impressed by Mr. Shaw's writing capabilities. THE CHOSEN ROUTES is an incredibly polished piece of writing. Each character is perfectly delineated and a perfect fit into the story's jigsaw. The horror starts subtly, more as an aside (like children making fun of the old grimy rundown house at the end of the road), but builds and builds until WHAM!! the reader (and the characters) are knocked senseless with grief and fear. Perfectly polished, perfect in execution.
