This is the story of Brian. In trying to reconnect with his family, he suggests they all go on a camping trip. They pile in the car and head off. Before too long they hit a fog bank and the van they are in hits a broken tree and is grounded. That's when things start to get REALLY strange! Somehow they have entered a portal to another dimension and must not only fight to survive but to escape with the help of a native creature they have named 'Spock'.
This started off quite stodgily. I thought I might have to
give up but luckily I persevered because it opened up into the most
amazing multi-layered story. The title might refer to the original drive
out to the campsite or the drive to survive or even the drive to escape
wherever they had found themselves with their lives. Brian's slow
descent into almost madness at all that is thrown at him is tangible and
my heart went out to his suffering. After the initial slowness, the
book took off and I found myself devouring page after page. So much so
that I read it in two sittings. This is a very cleverly written
horror/suspense that gives far more than is initially obvious. It will
appeal to anyone.
