A small town is transformed when seven strange trees begin bearing magical apples in this masterpiece of horror from the bestselling author of Wanderers and The Book of Accidents. "Chuck Wendig is one of my very favorite storytellers. Black River Orchard is a deep, dark, luscious tale that creeps up on you and doesn't let go."--Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus It's autumn in the town of Harrow, but something besides the season is changing there. Because in that town there is an orchard, and in that orchard, seven most unusual trees. And from those trees grows a new sort of apple: strange, beautiful, with skin so red it's nearly black. Take a bite of one of these apples, and you will desire only to devour another. And another. You will become stronger. More vital. More yourself, you will believe. But then your appetite for the apples and their peculiar gifts will keep growing--and become darker. This is what happens when the townsfolk discover the secret of the orchard. Soon it seems that everyone is consumed by an obsession with the magic of the apples . . . and what's the harm, if it is making them all happier, more confident, more powerful? Even if something else is buried in the orchard besides the seeds of these extraordinary trees: a bloody history whose roots reach back to the very origins of the town. But now the leaves are falling. The days grow darker. It's harvest time, and the town will soon reap what it has sown.… (lisätietoja)

Well-written, intriguing horror story that could have been shorter. ( )
  EZLivin | May 25, 2024 |
I thought that this book was incredibly well done! I can be a bit of a mood reader and decided to pick this one up when I was in the mood for a bit of horror. I was also hoping for something a little different, and I think this book fits that description. I know one thing for certain -I will never look at apples the same way again!

This story is told from multiple points of view. There are a lot of characters that play a key part in this story, and each of their perspectives adds a lot to the overall story. There were times that I had no idea which direction the story would take, and I loved the fact that there were some pretty big surprises worked into the plot. It was mind-boggling how a town could go so crazy over something as innocent as an apple.

The cast of narrators really knocked this one out of the park! I love the way each of the narrators was able to bring their characters to life. I never had any difficulty knowing which perspective the story had switched to, and I thought that their voices all complimented each other’s nicely. There were some pretty creepy scenes in this story and I thought that their narration really heightened that experience. I am certain that their performances added a lot to my enjoyment of this book.

I would recommend this book to fans of horror. This was the creepy apple book I didn’t know I needed. This story was full of surprises and enough scares to keep things very interesting, and I genuinely cared about the characters and hoped they would be okay in the end. I hope to read more of this author’s work soon.

I received a review copy of this book from Penguin Random House Audio. ( )

A mysterious apple tastes like heaven, and seems to bring those who eat it great health as well as other strengths. Except for the few who spit it out because of the things squirming in it …. This might be my favorite of Wendig’s yet, with a Stephen King-like feel for place and time (a teenage would-be influencer is one of the main characters) and for the way that real horror is always about what humans choose to do when evil appears. ( )

This was a slow starter for me, but once I got over my initial impatience with the teenaged protagonist, I was able to really enjoy it. This was a weird one, but absolutely worth the read.

Audiobook, via Audible. There were multiple narrators, and all but one were great. The narrator that voiced John Compass's sections sounded almost robotic ( )

Insatiable, passionate, weird, and creepy, Wendig’s latest (after Wayward) is perfect for those who appreciate the slow-burning horror tomes of Stephen King and Robert McCammon.

The township of Harrow has a secret. A round, red, delicious secret. Seven trees in its orchard grow apples unlike any others.... Wendig has numerous storytelling but his strongest has always been his approachable characters. No matter how far-fetched the situation, his characters are recognizably human.... After taking one bit of this scary book, readers will want more.

The myth of the poisoned apple belies the very real evil growing in a Pennsylvania orchard. If Wendig’s latest is less paranoia-inducing than his techno-themed thrillers, it’s just as squelchy, made more so by the primeval nature of the antagonist.... Wendig writes doorstoppers, but it’s safe to say there’s something for everyone here, from the creepy Eyes Wide Shut vibe (complete with sacrificial rituals) to the Stephen King–laced dichotomy between the world’s everyday cruelty and the truly grotesque carnage that follows. Both complex and compelling, a nightmare-inducing parable about our own wickedness.

Bestseller Wendig (the Wanderers series) wows with this wildly unsettling horror tale set in Bucks County, Pa.... Wendig is brilliant at slowly raising the plot’s emotional temperature and making his characters, caught in a creeping nightmare, feel both real and empathetic. This masterful outing should continue to earn Wendig comparisons to Stephen King.

Calla Paxson, age twelve, lurched upright in her bed, her heart pounding as if the nightmare she'd been having was still chasing her. She tried to chase the nightmare down in turn - but the ill dream fled from her, leaving only the raw, skinless feeling of its passing. -Prologue the First, The Orchard Keeper's Tale
