Now a major NETFLIX film
Adam Nevill has forged his reputation as one of the UKs best horror writers by writing elegantly stripped down, deceptively simple novels. No One Gets Alive starts off as a similarly pared-back take on the ghost story, but blossoms into something much grander in scale * SFX * Stephanie is submerged in abject terror, bouncing from mundane despair to supernatural fright so quickly that the reader becomes disoriented a sensation that only enhances the suspense . . . a reading experience fraught with real chills * Publishers Weekly * A macabre, otherworldly tale of a young woman swallowed whole and alive by the horror that refused to be sated * Kirkus * This great big anvil of horror lands hard from the get-go * Booklist * A fantastically cool read from start to finish, this author makes you turn on your lights and keep reading; a bit of an increase to the electric bill seeing as there are over six hundred pages in this unforgettable story. But if there were six stars to be given instead of five, this one deserves them! * Suspense Magazine * Written with an almost elegiac elegance, and a profound insight into the lives of those on the miserable fringes of society, this is a gripping, gruesome bone-chiller with resonant themes, a supernatural edge and an overwhelming sense of malevolence. Read it if you dare . . . but preferably not during the hours of darkness! * Fleetwood Today * A menacing novel that gets under your skin and stays there * Geek Syndicate * Adam Nevills No One Gets Out Alive will chill you straight through to the core a cold, merciless, fear-inducing nightmare to the last page. A word of caution, dont read this one in the dark * Night Owl Reviews * Brutal, shocking, scary and unnerving, No One Gets Out Alive is the best haunted house story I have read in long time * Ginger Nuts of Horror * Deeply psychological and harrowing, its an unforgettable study of cruelty that has plenty of surprises up its sleeve and drags you right to hell and back with it -- Matthew Fryer Nevills work is extremely dark and very often brutal. Its utterly mesmerizing, you want to look away but you cant * Eloquent Page * Verdict: a terrifying story of violence and the supernatural that deals with a monstrous evil rooted in the past. 9/10 * Sci-Fi Bulletin * That Nevill managed to sustain dread throughout a novel of this size is a true accomplishment, as this book throws horror at the readers from the very first paragraph and doesnt let up until the end. If youre a fan of horror and Adam Nevill isnt on your radar, youre doing something wrong * Arkham Digest * Once again we have a dark and disturbing tale from the pen of Adam Nevill, and its one which took me on a rollercoaster ride. * BCF Reviews * This here novel definitely comes as a cautionary tale: read the small print of your contract. More so, insist on a contract. And dont move into the first place on offer. Small Claims Courts cannot fight hell * Waterstones * One of the most scary and emotionally hard-hitting horror novels of recent times -- James Everington The book was brilliantly written. If any author is on his way to becoming a master of dark fiction, Adam Nevill is the one. He has a way of lifting his readers from the safety of their living room sofa into hell itself * Study Paranormal * No One Gets Out Alive is a fine addition to Adam Nevill's oeuvre, another classic piece of horror fiction and evidence that here is a writer at the very top of his game. Read it if you dare. I highly recommend that you should though -- Anthony Watson If you are a fan of the horror genre, this novel is a must read and my pick for 2014, albeit its an unrelenting and at times brutal story which takes you firmly by the lapels very early on and gets firmly, and unapologetically, right in your face -- Jonathan Wood
