    1. I read this last year and it was a favourite so I thought I would give it another go and I still can't stop thinking of the horrors it threw at me! Freaking fantastic bit of fiction this was. I am still recovering from reading it. This nearly popped my mind right open with parts of it, I felt genuinely scared, creeped out and downright horrified by this book that defies all logic and takes you to places you don't want to visit again.Oh God, I felt I was THERE so many times. I yelled at this book [...]


    2. This was one of those books that--in my opinion--could easily have been shortened by 200-300 pages, and been even BETTER in regards to sustaining the tension throughout the entire novel. A great, supernatural tale that really grabs you.once you get through the beginning.I have to admit that the first 200 pages almost caused me to give up (and there are over 600 pages here). While it started out promising enough, I didn't need over 200 pages of our main character, Stephanie, going on about how sh [...]


    3. ‘And what will I do if I turn the light on and someone is standing there?’ In No One Gets Out Alive, Adam Nevill explores the plight of a lonely desperate young woman, she takes a room at 82 Edgehill Road in Birmingham because it's cheap as chips at 40 quid a week. She's got a temp job handing out samples at the bullring shopping centre and it’s time for a fresh start. She's got nothing else, there's no one to help her and against her better judgement it's time for the first night in her n [...]


    4. 3.5 starsThis is my Book Of the Month- May 2016, with GR group- Literary HorrorThis is an insane ride. My first read by Adam Neville and this won't be the last. This book is about Stephanie who is making end's meet by doing menial jobs, has recently split from her boyfriend and is living on shared accommodation in cheap conditions. She comes across an add of cheap weekly accommodation available and makes the monumental mistake of moving into 82 Edgware Road The main sense I had about 82 Edgware [...]


    5. There comes a time in a writer’s career, where everything they have written before gels and coalesces into the novel that they were meant to write. It can be a frightening time for a writer when this happens, what if this is the pinnacle of their career? What if everything else they write after this book doesn’t match up? It must be a troubling time for a writer.Adam Nevill’s No One Gets Out Alive is one such book, but if I was him I wouldn’t be too concerned about reaching a pinnacle, a [...]


    6. Adam Nevill’s latest fiendish work has reached new heights of terrifying. Famous for his skin-crawl-inducing paranormal horror, which so far has come in various gruesome flavours: Scandinavian pagan folklore, Lovecraftian madness, creepy dolls and Victorian taxidermy, all enough to rob me of any decent sleep, his books always had a classic horror elegance to it - but they are positively cushy compared to the brick-sh**ting real-life horror he’s unleashed on us now. Fret not, the paranormal e [...]


    7. Being a avid fan of Horror books and supernatural , I really didn't enjoy this book at all. Ive read a couple of Adam Nevill books, so im not a stranger to his works, but I seriously felt bored with this book . After I read his last book " house of small shadows" I was gravely disappointed of how the book flitted from one thing to the other so quickly and did not have any stable foundations or concrete stability , so I said to myself no more, but then I got wind that Adam had published another b [...]


    8. I liked this book and it did have some creepy moments but it didn't scare me as bad as the previous 2 adam Nevill books I read (the ritual and last days). but I really, really like him! on to the next one!


    9. I’ll begin with an admission; this is the first book by Adam Nevill that I’ve read. I’ve been aware of his work for a while, but for reasons I don’t think I can really quantify, I’ve never picked up any of his books. When the opportunity came along to review his latest release I knew that now was finally the time for me to remedy this gross oversight.Stephanie Booth has reached as close to rock bottom as you can get. Her career is going nowhere; she can hardly afford to pay her bills a [...]


    10. Being my first Nevill, I didn't know what to expect. My overall opinion is that this book could have easily been reduced by 200 pages. It was a little lengthy and a bit repetitive.I enjoyed how the story wasted no time getting right down to the spooky. Immediately we are introduced to Stephanie as she is spending her first night in a rented room, being down on her luck and strapped for cash. My initial reaction was that this book was going to blow my mind. It was just what I was looking for at t [...]


    11. I stuck with this book for 200 pages but unfortunately those pages crawled with almost nothing happening. And what little did happen just made the main character grow increasingly unsympathetic because she was so whiny and passive. If you're looking for a book that is all atmosphere and little story, this is for you.


    12. This was disappointing, for me, compared to Nevill's other works. I would have enjoyed more of the supernatural and less of the (too) realistic horror. Ew.


    13. 4.5 starsAnd he does it again! I have yet to read a novel by Adam Nevill I didn't absolutely love. It's nighttime and it's very quiet. I'm sitting at the table in the breakfast room and all I can hear is the tick tick tick of my neon pink pig barbeque clock (don't ask) coming from the pantry room off my kitchen. I'm in the middle of page 400 something of this book and suddenly the phone rings and I actually felt myself jump out of my chair. I'd say that's a pretty good indicator of the book's in [...]

    15. This turned out to be more marvelously complex than I thought it would at first. When I reached what I had mentally predicted would be the climax, I realize that I had about nine more hours of book to go! It starts out as a simple haunted house story with some unpleasant human monsters but soon moves beyond that into a story of an ancient evil. I'm not going to recap the plot, but here are some of the things that bugged me:1. At the beginning, Stephanie bemoans her position--a lot. She's pretty [...]



    16. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/In No One Gets Out Alive, Stephanie thinks her life can’t get any worse. But this wouldn’t be a horror novel, if things weren’t about to get ten times as bad. She ends up taking a room in a huge, but rambling, old building in desperate need of a make-over. The room is cheap, but she thinks that’s probably due to the bad state of the property. That is, until she starts hearing strange noises, even on her first night there. Ghost [...]


    17. This is a story in two parts; the nightmare at Edgware Road and the aftermath. Stephanie moves into a grotty bedsit at 82 Edgware Road. Stephanie is a teenager, totally on her own and at the mercy of landlords, temp agencies and the uncaring world of 2014. Living life one step away from homelessness and one meal away from starvation, Stephanie is in a vulnerable position. Her landlord, Knacker and his cousin, Fergal soon begin to make life hard for Stephanie. She cannot get a night of decent sle [...]

    19. I loved this book. Yeah it was highly anticipated and I thought most likely over hyped but I was pleasantly surprised to see it was worth it. As normal for an Adam Nevill book it was impossible to predict where the story was going. His best to date.


    20. [Doug's Note: It was damnably hard to write the review this book deserves without resorting to spoilers, but I prioritized caution over completeness.]No One Gets Out Alive is a powerful examination of nightmare logic in which the boogeyman cannot be escaped and any attempts to run away will just run you right back face to face. For the first two-thirds, Nevill plays a game in which despair—being lonely, being unable to find long-term work, being unable to see a way out—blends right into horr [...]


    21. I'm grateful to the published for an advance copy of this book.This is a dark book - very dark indeed.As with Nevill's previous book, House of Small Shadows, and some of his short stories, the book is a masterclass in creating a creepy atmosphere by layering ordinary, everyday seediness - that flyblown shop you avoid going into, the dodgy looking flat you decide not to rent (if you have a choice) - with a sense of roiling evil. It's all damp plaster, clinging smells, scuzzy bathrooms and tacky l [...]


    22. I've also read Nevill's "House of Small Shadows," also an excellent read. This novel is very suspenseful and downright scary at times, and I think it had more terrifying moments than "House of Small Shadows." I woke up one day and lying in the dark started to think about this book, and I actually felt genuine fear even when I wasn't reading it!This is a claustrophobic, paranoid novel. Without giving anything away I'll just say it starts out quickly without hesitation with an increasingly unsettl [...]


    23. In the end I thought this was better than I first imagined it would be. The female victimization that still doesn't thrill me at least was there for a reason. For me things picked up after 3 years later and I thought the part before this was a tad overlongUTION SPOILERS AHEADThere was an odd Amanda Knoxy thing about victims, particularly female victims of abuse and violence, as somehow becoming seen as deserving their fate and actually seen as the evil ones. Stephanie/Amber is tried in the media [...]


    24. 5 starsWhat a big bloody chunk of a book that was!If I wasn't afraid of Birmingham before I believe I am a little bit now. Adam Nevill does write bloody good books, bloody being the operative word there!Psychotic 'landlords', blood, violence, sex, creepy happenings, acid and insanity, oh and a haunted house. What more could a girl ask for!?It could've lost a few chapters and still been this good and the tension could've be ratcheted up by losing said chapters but all in all, I really enjoyed it, [...]


    25. In some ways this book has proved a little bit of a disappointment. The first two-thirds is a highly impressive dark tale of a haunted house with a bloody history. Arriving at this seemingly innocuous, red bricked, low rental, house address 82 Edgehill Road Birmingham is Stephanie Booth. She recently split from her boyfriend Ryan and is now and attempting to live cheaply whilst working for a temping agency. It soon becomes clear there is something evil and wrong within the walls of 82 Edgehill. [...]


    26. I've got one word for this book and for Adam Nevill: Relentless.He not only gets into your head, but under your skin, into your veins and arteries, even inside your teeth. His books are consistently well-written with engaging characters, unfamiliar and unexpected descriptions, and uniquely horrifying plots. They relentlessly drag the characters further and further into the deepest sorts of unimaginable hell and then when you think it's over, just when they've dug their way out of the pit they we [...]


    27. 3.6This review refers to the audiobook .This is presented as a classic ghost story -- girl rents a room in old house and spooky shit like rustling under the bed and disembodied crying ensues -- and there are definitely those elements from practically page (minute) one, but this book excels in two ways: a) it gives the reader a plausible reason to believe in the heroine: there is truly no way out for this girl, so the whole why-doesn't-she-just-leave trope is eliminated, and b) it is more than ju [...]


    28. I'm a massive fan of Adam Nevill's novels they seem to capture that essence of horror that catches you and makes you really feel terrified. I was eager to read "No one gets out alive" and I was not disappointed! Stephanie is our main character, a young lady thrown into life after an unfortunate start she temps from one low paid job to another whilst living in rented rooms in the English city of Birmingham. Stephanie spots an advert for what seems like a bargain room at a low cost at a very run d [...]
