Review: Corridor (A Mythworks Novel) by Robin Parrish


Corridor (A MythWorks Novel)
StoneHouse Ink - December, 2011

About the book: 

THE ONLY WAY OUT IS TO RUN.

On the eve of his seventeenth birthday, Troy Goggin finds himself inexplicably transported to an impossibly huge, miles-long structure called the Corridor. But what is the Corridor, and why was he brought to it?

It’s a place of mystery, wonder, and heart-stopping danger. It will test him and push him both mentally and physically. His only companion is the girl whose voice he hears inside his head, explaining the rules he must follow if he hopes to escape.

But there is much more to this extraordinary place than Troy could ever imagine. The Corridor’s true purpose — the biggest mystery of all — is revealed only to those who make it to the end.

My thoughts:

First let me say that Robin Parrish is one of my favorite authors! Not including Corridor, I've read four of his books - Vigilante (#1 on my top ten books read in 2011), Relentless, Fearless, and Merciless. His other two books, Offworld and Nightmare, are on my wish-list. :)

Corridor, from the beginning pages, grabbed my attention. I wasn't even planning on reading this book yet, just thought I'd read the first few pages and then stop. But I couldn't stop. I stayed up WAY too late reading, until I finally realized I had to get some sleep. I finished Corridor the next day! It was sooooo good!

Troy, on the eve of his 17th birthday, wakes up to find himself in a bright, white room - so bright that he can't even keep his eyes open! How he got there and why, he doesn't know, but that white room is just the beginning of Corridor!

As the story continued, it got better and better - there were a lot of surprises and I loved every minute of the book. While, I guess, Corridor wouldn't be considered "Christian fiction", I still really enjoyed it. It was clean and very suspenseful.

I think fans of The Hunger Games will enjoy Corridor because to me it was even better than The Hunger Games, and way less gruesome!

I loved Corridor! It's now one of my favorite books and definitely one I'll be rereading. I completely recommend it - as long as you don't mind reading books with a little sci-fi/futuristic elements. I'm hoping there will be a sequel! :)

* I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*
