Waiting On Wednesday (113) The Deep by Nick Cutter

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. This week I'm turning my spotlight on The Deep by Nick Cutter.

Pre-Order: Amazon
Expected Publication:
January 13, 2015 from Gallery Books

A strange plague called the ’Gets is decimating humanity on a global scale. It causes people to forget—small things at first, like where they left their keys…then the not-so-small things like how to drive, or the letters of the alphabet. Then their bodies forget how to function involuntarily…and there is no cure. But now, far below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, deep in the Marianas Trench, an heretofore unknown substance hailed as “ambrosia” has been discovered—a universal healer, from initial reports. It may just be the key to a universal cure. In order to study this phenomenon, a special research lab, the Trieste, has been built eight miles under the sea’s surface. But now the station is incommunicado, and it’s up to a brave few to descend through the lightless fathoms in hopes of unraveling the mysteries lurking at those crushing depths…and perhaps to encounter an evil blacker than anything one could possibly imagine.

Part horror, part psychological nightmare, The Deep is a novel that fans of Stephen King and Clive Barker won’t want to miss—especially if you’re afraid of the dark.

Why Am I Waiting?
Some people find the infinite blackness of space terrifying but me, I get the shivers just thinking about what's lurking beneath the oceans surface. So much is unknown and it seems every year we encounter new and terrifying creatures living deep on the ocean floor.  Now with that knowledge throw in an evil as old as time itself with no easy means of escape for those trapped below and you have yourself the perfect setting for a Horror novel (at least I hope that's the case). It's sort of a shame this title is releasing in January though because this would be a perfect Halloween read. 
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before? 
If so, Do you plan on reading it?

  1. Wow this sounds interesting I'm loving the part horror part psychological nightmare portion of the description.

  2. Wouldn't you kill to see what's down there though? The unknown, you're supposed to fear the unknown though, right? Would be interesting though. Now I have to read it. 2015, mean. :(

  3. I haven't seen this book before. I'm intrigued, slightly scared. I think reading The Deep might put me on edge and make me jump at all kinds of little noises lol! Basically, I don't know that I could read it...especially alone, in the dark. Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  4. This books sounds so freakin cool I cant even express my emotions. This book is going straight on my TBR list.
