Book Review: Corridor by Robin Parrish

CorridorCorridor by Robin Parrish
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A boy wakes up in a white room – the light is so blinding he must keep his eyes closed. A voice in his head – the voice of a girl – tells him to run. His life depends on it. He has no idea how he got in this room. Immediately as readers we are hooked. Corridor follows the story of this boy as he progresses through a series of rooms – each one providing another challenge.

For the first few rooms we don’t know anything of why this is happening. Just like the protagonist, we are eager to find out. Slowly, the mythology of the story is reveal bit by bit – but never so much that we loose the hunger for more.

For almost all of the book, there are only two characters, but they carry the story effortlessly. All the way through, this is a good book. At the end, when all of the mythology is fully explained, it is elevated to a great book. I finished reading this novel with a great sense of satisfaction, like that after a good meal.
