Book Review: The Long Weekend
My mind is still reeling from all of the events in this thriller! I cannot believe everything that the boys went through. It is crazy scary! It’s unbelievable how strong you can become when put through a life or death situation.
I applaud Sam! He had so much courage and strength to pull Lloyd and him out of the scary situation they were in. There were multiple times when I was rooting for him and when I heard the jingle jangle my heart sped up so fast, I almost couldn’t even breathe! It was so much like watching a horror film; when you see what’s happening all around and you hide behind pillows with the blanket pulled up under your chin!
Lloyd, oh Lloyd! Throughout the book, I just wanted to punch him! Sam sure did have a lot of strength to not punch him! If I were Sam, I don’t think I would have held back, but I understand why Sam didn’t either because they both needed each other for the support to carry on and run and survive. As the book comes to an end, I completely understand the fear that invaded Lloyd! My heart broke and it’s so frighteningly scary what he went through – what they both went through is something that will leave a scar for a long time.
The Long Weekend is such a gripping thriller with an ending that will just break your heart yet make you feel extremely happy at the same time! I enjoyed it very much so. In all honesty, I was so scared while reading it. I did not know whether or not the boys would make it out alive or not. Savita Kalhan delivers such vivid descriptions of the events that the boys went through, it’s hard not to be scared! The Long Weekend is one creepy, thrilling, horrifying book that will glue you to your seat until the very last word!
