Waiting on Wednesday : I Am Behind You (Platserna #1) by John Ajvide Lindqvist


“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is :  I Am Behind You (Platserna #1) by John Ajvide Lindqvist.  The Title, the cover and the write up give me the chills – I want this book.

Molly wakes her mother to go to the toilet. The campsite is strangely blank. The toilet block has gone. Everything else has gone too. This is a place with no sun. No god.

Just four families remain. Each has done something to bring them here – each denies they deserve it. Until they see what’s coming over the horizon, moving irrevocably towards them. Their worst mistake. Their darkest fear.

And for just one of them, their homecoming.

This gripping conceptual horror takes you deep into one of the most macabre and unique imaginations writing in the genre. On family, on children, Lindqvist writes in a way that tears the heart and twists the soul. I Am Behind You turns the world upside down and, disturbing, terrifying and shattering by turns, it will suck you in.

Due out September 2017

    Woahh. I didn’t know about this book before. Thanks for making this post! The book sounds great; I love thrillers – and the fact that it is a supernatural thriller makes it even more exciting!

    What??? How did this come out of nowhere and escape my notice? Not sure there is a US publisher yet, maybe that’s the reason. Very cool, have you read Let Me In?

      Actually the book title is Let the Right One In.

      To my shame I haven’t read it – although I have seen the original film and loved it. And, I will also read the book because it’s on my own classic list.

    Oooh. A Supernatural thriller. Nice. It’s new to me but sounds good.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it sounds really quite chilling – I don’t read too many scary books but I like to throw in a few each year.
