    Carol Evers suffers from a bizarre condition: at times of stress, she lapses into a coma that closely resembles death, only she can hear what's going on around her. Now she's in one of her comas and her husband is planning on burying alive. The only man that can save her is a notorious...

    Gotta think about this... Storyline is unique, definitely has potential.... the telling is brooding, a creepy tale... Oh, this author's previous book, Bird Box, wew, was so very good! But this one just seemed to drag on a bit too much for me. Fastread/skipped a couple parts I admit. Mm...

    Anyone who reads my review knows that I am heads over heels in love with the novels of Josh Malerman. You must believe me when I say I am not being paid to say that. He is that good. His first novel was Bird Box which is the type of horror novel veteran writers would give their non-dom...

    Josh Malerman writes what he wants and that is just fine with me. Whether it's a mother trying to keep her kids alive, a group of musicians trying to save the world, or an outlaw trying to rescue his ex-lover, they all have one thing in common: Malerman communicates desperation and inc...

    I gave it my best try and read a third before throwing in the towel. This book was just so incredibly not for me. I like weird and dark little stories but this tale about a woman afflicted by a condition where she falls into a death-like state and the dastardly bastard of a man she tru...

    No one likes to be one of the pioneering negative reviews for a book, especially when you're already invested in the author, so let me start out by saying: some readers are going to love this. Unbury Carol is not a bad book by any means - it was just not the book for me. I recently ...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/09/... A solid 3.5 star read. Had I been in the right mood, my feelings towards Unbury Carol might have been even more positive, but I had a hard time finding my footing when it came to this book, and I think its ...

    "I'm a thing old enough to know that old was once young and that because young becomes old there is not love of life, only a fear of decay." Unbury Carol is sort of a mash up between a spaghetti western, the Brother's Grimm's Sleeping Beauty and do I dare say it, a Quentin Tarantino...

    To be fair I only made it 10? 15? 20%? into this one. I don't even know and don't care enough to look it up. Whatever percent it was, it was too much and I couldn't go on. I hated everything about this one except for the "idea". Too bad, I was looking forward to it and it sounds goo...

    I have literally just finished this book, and it completely exceeded my expectations. I will often take a peek at spoiler-free reviews before I pick up a book, and I was a bit disappointed when I noticed that quite a few of the reviews on Goodreads were negative. People that I resp...

    DNF at 15%. This one is just not clicking with me at all, and Malerman's latched onto certain words he repeats ad naseum. Every single character, apparently, must utter the phrase "Hell's heaven" in every conversation they have (word search shows 45 instances of this throughout the boo...

    3.5 stars! Hell's Heaven! I haven't been this torn about a book in a long while. UNBURY CAROL was brave in exploring new territory, (weird western, I'd call it), while at the same time it wallowed in repetition. Carol has a rare condition which causes her to fall into a coma for...

    3.5 Outrageously Far-Out Stars.......UNBURY CAROL is a bizarre story of good vs. evil with a strange mix of....magical realism....old time west...tricks and tricksters....and even a bit of paranormal when monster ROT enters the dreaded world Carol calls Howltown. Carol's frightening (s...

    "Fear was no stranger to Howltown, no traveler from the Trail, but the fear she felt now was shattering." I read Unbury Carol as the second book for the Night Worms review team. This was a rollercoaster for me - I really enjoyed some parts, and struggled with others. I want to say ...

    Can't do it, can't read any more. Made it to page 56 and if I have to read the phrase 'hell's heaven' just one more time I think my head will explode. Like many others, I like the idea of this story. The actual writing and story not so much. Oh well. Not giving this a star rating. ...

    Copy furnished by Net Galley for the price of a review. How dead can you be, and still be alive? Carol Evers can tell you all about it the next time she wakes up.  She can listen with her mind's ear, no one else can hear.   The Trail, where legends are made, where you can expec...

    3.5 out of 5 stars Who keeps marking this book as horror? WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE??! Are we reading the same book??? Let's adjust some expectations here: this is, above all, a Western. Yes, a Western, and also kind of a take on Sleeping Beauty with some minimal magic elements. This i...

    3-3.5 stars. Take Sleeping Beauty, transplant it to a Wild West setting, add some outlaws and you should have a interesting story. This story isn?t quite so good, though I did enjoy much of it. Carol of the title has a condition, where she falls into comas that look a lot like deat...

    First off, I will say that this is definitely not Bird Box. If you want to read this because you loved Bird Box, that is okay, but if you think you will be disappointed if it is not like Bird Box, then you probably won?t like it. I thought it was pretty good! I was leaning towards...

    2.5 stars. UNBURY CAROL, by Josh Malerman is a difficult book for me to review. On one hand, his writing is very nice and fluid (in parts), but overall, the repetition of certain phrases had me practically rolling my eyes by the end. The premise of this story is very original. Ca...

    Just like Vegemite, Unbury Carol is dividing opinion. Some think it?s the best thing Malerman has written and some think it?s drivel. It?s time for the Grim Reader?s verdict. Saddle up, dear reader, as we travel back to the old west. Yee-haw! Sadly, for me, Unbury Carol ...

    Thank you to the publisher for an Advanced Reader's Copy for all seven of the Night Worms review group in exchange for honest reviews. This book is out on April 10th. Of course, after reading Bird Box, I put Josh Malerman in the group of "authors that write books I want to read." Ma...

    Unbury Carol is just like something Stephen King would dream up, but unlike most modern horror stories it doesn't dwell much into the supernatural and instead gives a more realistic scenario. With a greedy husband willing to do the unthinkable for money, Carol, who falls into comas tha...

    3.5 ? First of all, this is a genre bending book. It can't really be contained in one category. It's horror/fantasy/paranormal/western all rolled into one. With that said, I'm sure if you are a fan of Westerns, you'll LOVE this book even more. That's the part I had a hard time gettin...

    Being an active Goodreads user, I put great importance on writing and, especially, reading reviews. I will admit reviews definitely impact what I choose to read: my TBR is long and I want to read the best books possible. Unbury Carol, the upcoming release from Josh Malerman, has not be...

    TWO STARS For transparency --I did not listen to the whole book. It is a western, which is okay, but I just couldn't get into it. I gave it the old college try because I absolutely loved Bird Box and I think the author, Josh Malerman, has an INCREDIBLE imagination. This is t...
