About this deal
I enjoyed this book, but found the resolution to the case not satisfying, as it did not feel not earned. The murderer experiences a break with reality at the end, and it felt like a too swift and easy wrap-up to what till then had been a compelling story.

And the stakes are about to get higher and higher after the body of a young woman is found near the Riverwalk by a woman out for a run. A young man is hunched over unconscious near the scene. All eyes are on nineteen year old Keith Ainsley. But did he do it? If you want to read something truly spooky with a terrifying storyline then look no further than Hide! I tried this on multiple devices and platforms and the speech text was so blurry it was very difficult to read. Even zooming in just made it pixelated rather than clear.I have to admit, seeing some of the scenes in here was intense! If you remember there was quite a bit of violence in this one! Seeing even the violent scenes was a little intense. Lol. And of course if you’ve read the book, you’ll remember what’s hunting them and seeing that was the stuff of nightmares! The chosen narration was dull though, it felt more like an over-arching stream of consciousness rather than a coherent storyline.

When Audrey realizes that the estate needs a gardener, Josiah answers the call, and the lower-class gardener’s presence—bringing more to the fore the same-class but servant-like Marion, Audrey’s late-husband’s cousin—begins to complicate everyone’s lives. While Simon is innocent in his voyeurism and underground burrowing, insofar as he never acts on his desires, this is then juxtaposed with Josiah’s less-educated and much more youthful innocence: the wide-eyed, believe-all-you-tell-me sort that takes words at face value, an innocence that longs to explore. Both of these get tested and pitted against one another in a theatrical and truly psychoanalytical way; indeed, while immersed in this, my first Unsworth, I read somewhere that this was an early, minor work of his. I can only imagine how his insights into human nature have grown with his subsequent books. The suspenseful plot combines elements of Thomas Tryon’s classic Harvest Home, Netflix’s Squid Game, and the social commentary of Jordan Peele’s film oeuvre and mixes these with a revelatory pacing reminiscent of Spielberg’s Jaws.” — BooklistTaken into a shelter they are given the rules, from dawn until dusk the game is on, hide or be eliminated if found. They are told that two of them will be eliminated each day and after that return to the base until the next day when the hunt begins again. To win simply survive the seven days without being found.
