Cold Skin by Albert Sanchez Pinol

Best Blogger Tips
Cold SkinCold Skin, by Spanish author Albert Sanchez Pinol, takes place after World War I. A man, whom remains unnamed, goes to an Arctic island to live for one year as a weather official. He is looking forward to a year of solitude with his books. But as he arrives by ship the crew is surprised that the previous weather official is nowhere to be found. This was just a subtle sign of the events he would have to endure. His first night on the island he is attacked by a swarm of monsters.

It may sound like a cheesy horror flick but it's not. It's actually classified as fiction, not horror. It is philosophical but still a quick and easy read. I couldn't put the book down.

Cold Skin was an unexpected find. It was so compelling; full of suspense and action. It was overall a really messed up book. It probably won't be a bestseller any time soon as the general public might find it too strange and eerie.

It was a really cool book and is definitely a favourite. I give this book a Thumbs Up.

  3. Sounds interesting. Especially since the description sounds like a horror story, but it's more eerie than scary.
