Through the Woods Reviews
I’m looking through a window at some trees in the early evening, the trees becoming darker and darker, and I feel something despite myself - the DNA starts moving, remembering a time when the darkness of the trees meant danger. Emily Carroll plays off of those primal fears in the folkish horror stories of Through the Woods, which also warns “It came from the woods. Most strange things do.”
The first story, Our Neighbor’s House, loosely riffs on Red Riding Hood as a trio of sisters are left by the ...more
Loved the illustrations but didn't love the stories as much unfortunately :/
Goosebumps. Full of them. Reading this horror filled graphic novel during night-time turned out to be a terrifying idea. Yet, I couldn’t stop reading. It was captivating. I don’t think I’ve even noted a single thing of my environment while reading it; there was only the book and I.
There were five short stories in this book. All of them contained a spooky or completely frightening plot that will keep you on the edge. The author also managed to include suspense in the atmosphere. However scary th ...more
“Oh, but you must travel through those woods again and again ... and you must be lucky to avoid the wolf every time ... But the wolf ... the wolf only needs enough luck to find you once.”
My sister had gotten this book for Christmas––and today I picked it up because she'd told me it was really cool, and I've been trying to read more graphic novels.
And HOLY CRAPPPP I loved this so much. I devoured the whole thing in one sitting; it was so gripping and terrifying that I couldn't put it down for a ...more
I haven't bought books to 'write off'.....but I actually could. In the guest room of of our Airbnb.... I have a book shelf. I like to leave books for our guests to enjoy while they stay with us. We don't offer a TV in the room. We've been getting a lot of return guests ---people who come to town for business-and enjoy staying in our little retreat oasis- private quiet - their own warm pool and sauna.
I've been getting feedback on the books I leave out - so I keep rotating them for repeat 'friend ...more
I want to panel my bedroom with the pages from this book - although that might disturb visitors.
I adored the imagery and writing as a whole, but for over half of the stories, I felt the endings fell a bit flat.
A set of five short little horror stories.
Everyone loves this book.
Everyone says don't read these at dark.
I thought I would flip out over this book.
I think I may not be the target audience for something like this.
I'm not really a fan of short stories. At least the ones that have no definite endings.
It does have some awesome artwork though. I think if I had read these when I was a teenager I went have went bonkers over them. But my old jaded ass just didn't care for it now because i ...more
That wasn't nearly as scary as I was expecting. The art is beautiful though. I love the color palettes she chose for each story; they work very well together. They read like spooky folk tales, and while I wasn't particularly scared by them, they are rather creepy. I felt like a few of the stories ended too abruptly though. I would love for the author to make a longer, single scary story and really expand on what she has here. There wasn't much dialogue either so it goes by really quickly and rel ...more
