You ever have one of those days where things aren’t necessarily going your way. I had a few days like that in a row. But when you come across a story that sucks you in and doesn’t let go, all that seems to fall away. If the story is done right it is something that grabs you by the brain and just won’t let go. The Switch House by Tim Myer was one of those reads.
Summary: A couple lose a child and then go on a reality TV show to switch houses. However; when they switch back to their own home things aren’t necessarily the same.
What I liked: I liked the entire story. I thought it was going to be straight forward when I first started reading it and HOLY BEEGUS!!! It zigged when I thought it was going to zag. And then when I thought the twists where done it zigged again. I love when a story keeps me guessing and let me tell you this story did. I enjoyed the pacing of the story and Meyer’s writing was so good. The last few pages I was holding my breath.
What I didn’t like: Honestly, there was nothing I didn’t like about the story, pacing or the characters that Meyer dreamed up.
Star Rating: 5 stars and more!!!
My Thoughts: My brain is still wrapped around the story. I have all the thoughts about this story. It is going to be with me for a while. For me the story wasn’t as much about horror as it was about being a parent. I know I might be looking too deeply into the story but I in the words I can see the frustrations of being a parent. Again I may be looking to deeply but sometimes there can be more behind words then just words. Tim Meyer’s The Switch House knocked my proverbial socks off.
