Katherine Arden Ë Small Spaces book

Small SpacesGet moving At nightfall they'll come for the rest of you Nightfall is indeed fast descending when Ollie's previously broken digital wristwatch a keepsake reminder of better times begins a startling countdown and delivers a terrifying message RUN Only Ollie and two of her classmates heed the bus driver's warning As the trio head out into the woods bordered by a field of scarecrows that seem to be watching them the bus driver has just one final piece of advice for Ollie and her friends Avoid large places Keep to small And with that a deliciously creepy and hair raising adventure begin Many thanks to the GP Putnam's Sons for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review When the mist rises and the Smiling Man comes walking you must avoid large places at night Keep to small Have you ever heard of the Scoville Scale It is the scale that measures the spicy ness of a food Mainly peppers With the lowest pepper the Bell Pepper all the way to the hottest the Carolina Reaper 💀 the Scoville Scale has a variety of hotness I feel like this reflects on horror books as well Just like spicy food different book are or less potent And just like spicy food it affects people differently Some can read a Stephen King book and be fine just like some can eat a jalapeño and be fine I personally have a high horror tolerance Funny because I cannot stand spicy food so not a ton of books give me a good chill This one did which was surprising considering its middle grade Why I'll tell youFirstly the characters I know it seems like I say this about every book but I loved all the characters again especially Ollie 💓♣ Ollie God I loved Ollie She was without a doubt My favorite character She reminded me of myself so much I felt as though as though I was looking into a mirror She loves books which obviously won me over instantly She very headstrong and impulsive but in the best possible way At the same time she is very down to earth and uiet I enjoyed seeing her rebellious side but also when she was calm shy and uick thinking♣ Brian Hmmmmmm well I didn't hate him He definitely added to the story He was the absolute opposite of Ollie and thus me Athletic handsome charismatic popular Words I would never use to describe myself He was also not very chivalrous He didn't directly bully but when he witnessed it happening he did nothing to stop it He also wasn't the brightest bulb on the tree I'm just glad he didn't try to persue Ollie in a relationship because that would have made me cra cra Well than I already am 😏♣ Coco She was a bit like Brian except whiny and dare I say it stupider I honestly couldn't decide if she was supposed to be the comic relief or an antagonist I felt the same way for Brian ♣ Ollie's Dad Even though he wasn't technically a main character I still want to talk about Ollie's dad who was never given a name As far as I can remember that is He's one of those characters that you simultaneously pity and hate at the same time He would lash out but was still a very loving dad I think the main reason I liked him is because he felt so human So real and raw He's grieving the loss of his wife and trying to take care of his daughter at the same time I rooted him and I hope we see of him in book two♣ Smiling Man If Pennywise and Legend had a baby and then dipped in Pure Evil® the Smiling Man would be that Not only is he creepy he is smart and conniving I don't want to spoil anything but I just think he was such a perfect villain I'd love to read his preuel story if it's ever written♣ Scarecrows I mean this would be like calling the Walkers from The Walking Dead characters But still The attention to detail for these creatures was stunning and terrifying That combined with the seriously creepy cover art made these things one of the creepiest made up creatures I've ever heard of Also when one of them spoke Creepiest scene of the whole bookThis book seems to dip into a variety of genres From fantasy to Mystery to sci fi I have seen books try and fail to pull this off It ain't easy to do well So props to Katherine Arden for doing that well 🙌🙌 This read like a mystery because of it's clues and sleuthing but also like a fantasy because of the zombie scarecrows and evil smiling man I also loved that it felt like a zombie apocalypse book I love zombie apocalypses I mean I'd never want to experience one but I love reading about them but it is so hard to find a good zombie apocalypse book Even though this wasn't a zombie apocalypse book per se it still is one of the best ones I have ever read I also really loved the farm setting That just added to the already superb creepinessSomething I except from most books especially middle grade ones is a strong moral theme I loved the team work self sacrifice and kindness shown by almost all of the characters Good job book 👍I am a knowledge addict When I find a subject especially a science fiction or fantasy one I need to know everything While I got enough lore to just barely satisfy me I still was left wanting to know about how the world works I want to know the ins and outs of everything from The Smiling Man to the Scarecrows to the Small Spaces book Book two you had better come throughThe ending felt a bit too perfect a bit too easy Somehow I have a feeling this is not the past we'll of the Smiling Man45 StarsThat Was Astoundingly Surprisingly
