Unbury Carol – Josh Malerman || RANT REVIEW

So I’m a huge fan of Josh Malerman. I loved Bird Box! It was one of the most innovative and refreshing horror/suspense novels I had read in a long time. Then I read The House at the Bottom of the Lake. I rated it low, but I think the suspense in the book was top notch.

Then I came to Unbury Carol. I was SO excited to read Unbury Carol and had actually received an e-arc for the book but was unable to read it because it expired before I got to it.

So you can imagine my excitement when I saw that my library got a copy of Unbury Carol. I picked it up immediately and my friend Regina @ Bookish in Bed was excited too so we buddy read it. And….well….let’s talk about how I felt….



Carol Evers is a woman with a dark secret. She has died many times . . . but her many deaths are not final: They are comas, a waking slumber indistinguishable from death, each lasting days.

Only two people know of Carol’s eerie condition. One is her husband, Dwight, who married Carol for her fortune, and—when she lapses into another coma—plots to seize it by proclaiming her dead and quickly burying her . . . alive. The other is her lost love, the infamous outlaw James Moxie. When word of Carol’s dreadful fate reaches him, Moxie rides the Trail again to save his beloved from an early, unnatural grave.

And all the while, awake and aware, Carol fights to free herself from the crippling darkness that binds her—summoning her own fierce will to survive. As the players in this drama of life and death fight to decide her fate, Carol must in the end battle to save herself
