As day breaks over the camping grounds, four families are waking up to discover that things have changed. It’s a beautiful day, but instead of the usual camp, they find themselves surrounded by a large field of grass, and there’s no sun in the sky. Nothing but green grass and blue sky as far as the eye can see. What’s happened? Have they been moved? Why? Where are they? As they try to find the answers, each of them is forced to confront not only their deepest desires, but also their deepest fears.
Lindqvist (Let the Right One In) has long been one of my favorite horror writers. Much like Stephen King, not only is he a keen observer to human behavior, he also has a master’s touch in crafting a truly terrifying story in which the monsters aren’t always the scariest thing about it.
