Book Review: The Echo Room by Parker Peevyhouse


Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: September 11th, 2018

Thank you Raincoast Books, St. Martins Press and Tor Teen for the free copy of this book to read and review.

A young man named Rett wakes up on a cold and dark floor. He doesn’t know where he is or how he got there. Confused and curious, he gets up and begins to walk around to figure out just where he is and what is going on. He notices blood on the front of his shirt. How did it get there? Did he hurt someone? After exploring his surroundings, he discovers he is not alone. There is a young woman there with him, named Bryn. She has no memory of how she got there either. She asks Rett where the blood came from, and after hearing he has no idea what happened, Bryn fears her safety. Can she trust Rett? Is he telling the truth? The only thing they both know for certain is that they are locked in this room together. The question is why? Rett tries to escape from the room alone, only to wake up suddenly on the floor all over again….

This book was interesting and had my interest from the very start. I was curious to find out why Rett and Bryn were locked together in a cold and dark room and why they had no idea where they were or how they got there. I was wanting to solve the mystery or just what exactly was going on. A few times they kept making progress it seemed, until they all of a sudden woke up on the cold floor of the same room again and again, as if everything was reset. I was interested in finding out why the story seemed to reset itself, and each time the story turned out a bit differently.

Slowly all the pieces come together and you slowly learn what exactly is going on. I was frustrated when the story kept resetting and the day seemed to start all over again and was initially confused as to what was going on, but it made sense after a while. A few parts of the story for me I found dragged on a bit, but it picked up again for me near the end.

Overall this was a pretty enjoyable read.
