characters Fir by Sharon Gosling 107 We are the trees We are the snowWe are the winterWe are the peace We are the rageCut off from civilization by the harsh winter of northern Sweden the Stromberg family shelter in their old plantation house. OK readers get ready for a long and rambling review on Fir because there is a lot that I would like to say about it Myself and my boyfriend were really lucky enough to meet the author Sharon at a Literature festival close to where we are from and she was lovely to meet and talk horror stories with as an aspiring horror writer myself I ve definitely learnt to make a note of all of the nightmares I have when I sleep since between the ages of 5 8 and 17 to present day I ve suffered uite badly with them At the book event we both learnt about the origins of Fir as a story and how Sharon herself actually drove into a forest just to write and capture down the setting for it Fir was visually brilliant and deliciously creepy I really didn t want things to endOne thing that really stood out to me about the story is the main character s perspective We as the reader don t know the character s name how old they are if they are a boy or a girl My personal thoughts from reading Fir was that the main character s voice that I could hear in my mind was a 1415 year old male My boyfriend had a different theory of a teen girl s voice talking The story is set in the north of Sweden where the main character and their parents arrive in an old plantation house surrounded by hundreds of trees But from the minute they arrive it s very clear that someone doesn t want them thereHonestly don t read this book when you are alone in the house one of the characters Dorothea was such a miserable grump but did play uite a huge role in Fir I say the age range for readers who want to read Fir is 15 primarily because of some of the graphic descriptions of most of the scary events that happen throughout I read this book as part of a readathon I am participating in called Spookathon you can follow me on Twitter to see daily check ins of what I ve been reading and my TBR wwwTwittercomMarriedToBooks3I own a physical signed copy of Fir

characters Fir by Sharon Gosling 107 In the face of signs that there’s an even greater danger waiting to strike it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish reality from illusion All they’ve got to do is stay sane and survive the wint. I went into this book not entirely knowing what to expect as I had never read a Red Eye story before I knew it would be a horror based YA but that was the extent of my knowledge We bought three Red Eye books when we were on holiday in Cornwall earlier this year so I was hoping I would my first oneIt was a very accessible read but my god did it take ages to get going It wasn t until around page 150 that it started to really grip me and don t get me wrong I can appreciate that every book needs to give you some back story and introduce you to the characters etc but in Fir it unfortunately felt very forced and as a result I found the first half a little boringOnce it got going though it was a thrilling and suspenseful tale of isolation mystery and fear Any horror book that can make you feel uneasy about going out of your front door at night is a win in my opinion I will certainly be viewing trees in a different way after this readTaking that into account but also taking away a star maybe because of the few spellinggrammatical mistakes and also how annoying the main character was I m giving this three stars

characters Fir by Sharon Gosling 107 There are figures lurking in the ancient pine forests and they’re closing in With nothing but four walls between the Strombergs and the evil that’s outside they watch and wait for the snows to meltBut. 30 StarsSet in an isolated part of northern Scandinavia this was a wintery young adult novel that would be best to read on a snowy day My favourite aspect was easily the forest setting The trees really felt like a character in the novel The main character was uite annoying As an adult I just don t enjoy reading about surely teenagers who complain about their parents constantly The other characters felt eually flat and the plot was just a bit too simple Overall it was a fairly interesting story involving Scandinavian folklore but it did not give me any creepy feels
