The Ruins by Scott Smith

An intellectual read? No. But I had to mix it up with the other current posts on here. If you're looking for a fun, "horror" read, this would be a good choice. I purchased the book in Rome because I had absolutely nothing to do while waiting a day to fly back to the U.S., and it was a good time occupier. Some of you may have seen the movie (I have not), but the basic premise is that six college-aged kids stumble upon a freaky Myan hill covered in some very unique vines. Grisly deaths ensue. Stephen King called it the best horror novel of the new century, so that should count for something, right?

  1. Saw the movie. Was terrible. Book was probably MUCH better.
