Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: As the ash and chaos from Mount Rainier's eruption swirled and finally settled, the story of the Greenloop massacre has passed unnoticed, unexamined, until now. But the journals of resident Kate Holland, recovered from the town's bloody wreckage, capture a tale too harrowing and too earth-shattering in its implications, to be forgotten. Because if what Kate Holland saw in those days is real, then we must accept the impossible. We must accept that the creature known as Bigfoot walks among us, and that it is a beast of terrible strength and ferocity.

    *Starred Review* Imagine being stranded, and rescue attempts have been cut off. Imagine using technology so frequently that it is taken for granted, until there is no access to it. Imagine an unforeseen natural disaster unleashing a ravenous host of powerful predators on unsuspecting and unarmed neighborhoods. In Brooks' latest, reminiscent of his popular best-seller, World War Z (2006), he documents a terrifyingly realistic survival encounter using first-person interviews interspersed with journal entries recorded by a woman as she experiences events. The introduction, accompanied by a hand-drawn map of an isolated, high-tech ecocommunity in Washington, sets the stage for a bloody confrontation between a small group of humans and creatures previously believed to exist only in folklore. The escalating alarm of naive people preparing to face a curiously intelligent terror from the woods is related straightforwardly even as the beasts come howling in through the front door. The footnoted text and references to historical incidents of catastrophic failure, some fairly recent, give insight into weaknesses humanity blithely ignores every day. The story is told in such a compelling manner that horror fans will want to believe and, perhaps, take the warning to heart. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
