“The Hike” (2016) by Drew Magary – A book review

This well written novel includes a mixture of fantasy, intrigue, suspense and psychological thriller. Drew Magary leads the reader on a path that transforms an innocent and insecure man into a courageous and daring risk taker. Each step taken cause the man to gain confidence as he meets with one perilous situation after another.

The twists and turns Magary pens will leave the reader thinking things can’t get much worse. They do. The memories of the man’s wife and kids keep him strong, but even that wains after a period. The story builds and builds leading to a shocking realization that awaits on the last page. (Do yourself a favor and don’t cheat!)
