What the community says about The Wide Game
- "I did not like this book at all. The author introduces a lot of characters but it's like they just exist and we don't really get a solid amount of backstory on any of them. It just feels really cheap and disappointing. I was really looking forward to knowing the characters in this novel but they just seem like cheap caricatures of actual people. I would skip it."
- "This book was absolutely awesome! I can definitely say after reading this book that I'm more afraid of corn fields than ever before. The Wide Game is classic horror, with teenagers separating in the dark when you know they ought to stay together, with something scary in the cornfield, and with romantic leads just desperate to survive. But survival isn’t everything, and there are gaps in the gruesome details where nobody knows just who or what is setting the rules for the game. And then there’s death. And then there’s the school reunion."
- "While there are a sort of demons in this horror novel, I was looking for something a little more Biblical. This was pretty good, though. The concept of it reminded me of Stephen King's It along with a few other of his books. The writing didn't compare to King's, though."
- "I was drawn in from the beginning of the book when Paul goes back to his 10th HS reunion. Something happened ten years ago that has him so scared that I had to go lock my doors before I could keep reading! The wide game is an age old tradition that seniors from this peaceful Indiana town always play before graduation. It has a natural creep factor because the game takes place among the tall corn stalks of the cornfields. But what transpires for this class back when they graduated and continues into their modern lives is not what I was expecting and I have to say, was a very frightening read. If you like the horror genre and good writing as I do, this is a must read. "
