Book Overview

From the acclaimed author of The Troop--a book that is "utterly terrifying" (Clive Barker). "Fans of unflinching bleakness and all-out horror will love this novel....Each new shock is freshly disturbing" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

A strange plague called the 'Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget--small things at first, like where they left their keys, then the not-so-small...

The 'Gets is a frightening plague, but the search for the cure was less

I would like to say that I would read this book again, though it is confusing at times. This book is filled with flashbacks galore, and questionable logic of the characters. The book is split into six parts. I do love the creepy setting that Mr. Cutter has set up, with an underwater base far removed from other people, its quietness when entering. I do appreciate his build up to the scenes BUT unfortunately I was quickly sucked out of those moments with constant FLASHBACKS. I understand that flashbacks have their place in many a story but there was quite a few, and it was very hard to keep focused on what was going on in the base and keep the "fear" going. I was being pushed and pulled like a current, I did not enjoy it. I am sure that there were a few flashbacks that could be omitted, or presented in an entirely different way. How I can not say, its not my story. I did enjoy it, but it is definitely one of those books that you have to PAY ATTENTION! Or you will lose your train of thought, think of it as if you get distracted you will have to re-read a couple of pages to get caught back up. (Rewinding the tape if you will) For an underwater thriller, it is more of a hidden unknown thriller. Its not the base that is the villain it is something else. The base just helps set up the solitude of the situation. Read the book at your own discretion, I will read again although my questions will remain forever unanswered.

Deeply disturbing

Definitely horror filled. There's body horror, monsters. It's a slow burn and then it's like a roller coaster plummeting out from under you.


I liked this book. I was looking for a horror novel and this did not disappoint. The story could be gruesome at times and was not for the faint of heart. I didn't give it 5 stars because I felt like the whole book was leading up to something bigger and was slightly disappointed in the ending.
