Book Review: Deliverance (Dickey)


Have I read this before: Nope! I think this was a book that I always had trouble finding in hard copy form, but that’s no longer an issue. KINDLE, BABY!!!

Review: I had a vague idea of what this book was about based on references to it in other forms of media I’ve seen, but I didn’t really know exactly what it was about until I read it. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but it was definitely a creepy read. Not the creepiest thing I’ve read, but pretty creepy. The ending wasn’t what I was expecting, either. I don’t want to give too much away for anyone who hasn’t read it, but let me just say that my desire to go into the woods in the deep south has diminished (not like it was high in the first place).

Favorite part: I liked the tension built up around Ed’s climb up out of the gorge and his waiting at the top to do what he needs to do to get himself, Bobby, and Lewis out of the predicament they’re in. It’s a good build up in tension.
