Part ghost story, part social-inequality satire [with] genuine paper jump-scares
Must be the boldest double twist of the year. Truly fantastic
Hidden Pictures isn't a ghost story, it's a scalpel that slices into our smug sense of self-satisfaction so deeply it hits bone. A perfect summer thriller complete with vengeful spirits, class warfare, and it even has pictures. What more could you want?
One of the best and most inventive ghost stories I've read in years. The damaged but still fighting Mallory Quinn stole my heart. It's a beautiful dark rush of a novel. I'm already excited to read it again
A gripping supernatural thriller
I loved it. The surprises really surprise and it has that hard-to-achieve propulsiveness that won't let you put it down. And the pictures are terrific!
Memorable and twisty . . . Seems designed to be read at the side of the pool with a drink in your hand and a smile on your face
Whip-smart, creepy as hell, and masterfully plotted, Hidden Pictures is the best new thriller I've read in years. Destined to be a classic of the genre
A disturbing household secret has far-reaching consequences in this dark, unusual ghost story . . . Rekulak does a great job with character development: Mallory, who narrates in the first person, has an engaging voice; the Maxwells' slightly overbearing parenting style and passive-aggressive quips feel very familiar; and Teddy is so three-dimensional that he sometimes feels like a real child. It's almost enough to make a person believe in ghosts
Tightly plotted and well written [...] A gripping page-turner with intriguing characters and genuinely creepy moments
The explosive third act gives this story a nail-biting ending sure to thrill
