    Just recently I said to someone that I don't believe Adam Nevill could ever write a bad book, and with the publication of Under A Watchful Eye, he has proven me right once again. There are a number of surprises awaiting the reader of this novel, so anyone thinking maybe they'd like to ...

    This book is going to be my horror read of the year. There's so much that's horrifying about this tale, but strangely, what got to me the most, was the imposition into Seb's life. The character of Ewan I found utterly infurating, I've never been so annoyed at someone who isn't re...

    You're never as alive as you are when you leave your body. This book tapped into my fears in a way that few books have. When I was younger I tried messing around with astral projection and got so scared I never attempted it again. But it's not just the supernatural terror that got t...

    Seb Logan is being watched. He just doesn't know by whom. The appearance of a new Adam Neville novel is always a delight tinged with a feeling of "What am I letting myself in for this time?" vibe A long time fan of Neville I love the way he turns a quintessential British landscap...

    An occult conspiracy threatens to drive an old frenemy back into a professional writer's life...the artsy poser who never wrote anything of worth returns... I'm going to give this four stars, although I didn't like it--it's in a style that I dislike. Probably on a more objective lev...

    I?ve long been a fan of Adam Nevill, so when Under a Watchful Eye was released my expectations were naturally high. When I started reading, I must admit I wasn?t entirely sold. The book has a slow moving, brooding narrative, and I found myself at one point thinking I?d need t...

    UNDER A WATCHFUL EYE is a rarity among horror novels, delivering a perfectly executed one-two punch of psychological and supernatural horror while keeping the tension garotte taut from cover to cover. When Seb Logan, horror novelist, begins seeing the sinister apparition accompanied ...

    This is such a strange story. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it before. The protagonist, Seb, reminded me of leading characters in Adam Nevill's other books. He's a loner, withdrawn, inflexible, unable to tolerate other people very well and not very able to stand ...

    This is a great horror novel? it should have been published earlier to stride alongside the giants of 2016 but it sets a very high bar for the horror writing world of 2017. The story begins with the worst nightmare of the horror reader: the protagonist is a writer. That is usually...

    Adam Nevill has launched to the top of numerous lists as being one of the finest, and consistent, horror writers out there, and his latest, "Under A Watchful Eye," is another excellent addition to his prominent published resume. "Under A Watchful Eye" is a story that easily unnerves...

    With this book I did something I have never done, I picked it up and just started reading. I did not read the synopsis, I did not read any reviews, I just jumped right in. And what a wonderful experience it was. If I had known what this was about or knew what the main device was to mov...

    UNDER A WATCHFUL EYE, by Adam Nevill, is a novel of both psychological and physical horror--the combination of which created one of the most intense, unsettling books that I've read in a while. The true test, in my opinion, was whether or not Nevill could sustain this level of tension ...

    All who wander may not be lost, but those who hinder will never ascend. Seb Logan enjoys an orderly life of solitude and writing along with all of the comforts it affords him. Working on his latest novel among the cliff-side gardens of Goodrington, that all begins to change when a ...

    In the greylands we found others in different form. They wept in our faces or clawed us from out of the mist. If they are angels or the souls of the departed, then none should be hasty for the dark.? And into those lands and that darkness of his latest book UNDER A WATCHFUL EYE, Adam...

    Sometimes what we perceive as the ultimate horror, the nadir of our existence is but the beginning? That is certainly the case for Sebastian 'Seb' Logan, well-to-do horror author with an almost unhealthy obsession for cleanliness and order. Earlier in his life, while still trying ...

    This was my second book by Adam Nevill, and I enjoyed it. The writing is easy to read, and Mr. Nevill is very good with painting dark scenery and making you feel the dread. With the story on this one, I was a little disappointed with how things turned out. The first part of the book po...

    Adam just is THE king of horror in my opinion. He just takes me to places where the terror is so damn real. He?s one of very few authors that can send chills and have me leave the light on. This book is different to others I?ve read. Where does he get his plot ideas from? Dare I...

    Britain?s premier literary horror writer is at it again with ?Under A Watchful Eye? ? a book that sees Nevill move back towards his fondness for the supernatural in a tale that is brooding, beautifully written and deeply unsettling. Last year saw Nevill release his excellent...

    I received this book for free as part of the Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. I had high hopes for this book, but on the whole I found it convoluted, and unnecessarily difficult to follow. The story itself takes an age to get into, with nothing much happening fo...

    This is the fourth Adam Nevill novel I?ve read now, and each brilliantly offers something a little different. Under A Watchful Eye is a horror novel that works on a number of levels; traditional horror, physical horror, and a horror of the unseen. The sense of place is superbly craft...

    This is the best book Neville has written since The Ritual. Unlike many of his other books, it is not dragged down by a long-winded second half. Instead it is short, focused, and as equally intense as Last Days or The Ritual. I was initially a little doubtful if the well worn trope of...

    WOW. Just WOW. I was lucky enough to stumble across Adam Nevill's work last month when I downloaded 'Some Will Not Sleep' and I can safely say that I am a firm fan of his. I have not been so excited about a new book release since the Harry Potter series (I was one of those nerdy ...

    If Scientology had been invented by Lovecraft, rather than Hubbard, this could be his Dianetics. Recommended for fans of the skillfully written weird and creepy. This will haunt me for the foreseeable future. If this bus is headed for heaven, I'll wait for the next one. ...
