I Am Behind You
|Author:||John Ajvide Lindqvist|
Four families wake up one morning in their caravans, next to their cars, on an ordinary campsite in southern Sweden. However, during the night something strange has happened. Everything else has disappeared, and the world has been transformed into an endless expanse of grass. The sky is blue, but there is no sign of the sun; there are no trees, no flowers, no birds. And every radio plays nothing but the songs of sixties pop icon Peter Himmelstrand. As the holiday-makers try to come to terms with what has happened, they are forced to confront their deepest fears and secret desires, and in many cases expose the less appealing aspects of their character. Past events that they have tried to bury rise to the surface and take on a terrifying phyiscal form. Can any of them find a way back to reality? I Am Behind You is a compelling, eerie new novel from the internationally bestselling author of Let the Right One In.
'A smart, sprawling romp that's all about love and courage and loyalty...I haven't read such a bold, free-wheeling novel in years. I loved every word of it.' Sonya Hartnett on Let the Right One In 'An unsettling and durable horror tale from the mind of a dangerously imaginative man.' Herald Sun on Let the Right One In 'Lindqvist, like Stephen King, with whom he has often been compared, offers finely crafted and psychologically sharp parables of a cracked society.' The Australian on Little Star 'Can a horror thriller be truly enjoyable? Certainly in the hands of Swedish author Lindqvist...Intelligent writing, poetic imagery, a deft turn of phrase.' Adelaide Advertiser on Harbour
