The Three by Sarah Lotz (Hoo Baby!))


Forcing the world into a fearful silence, four planes around the world crash almost simultaneously in Japan, Florida, Portugal, and South Africa.  Our of these flights there are only three survivors each from a different flight and each are children.  A Pastor of a church that one of the congregation was on the Japan flight and died, feels that these children are a sign from God of the coming Apocalypse, referring to them as the four horseman and saying that there is a fourth child but he or she has yet to be discovered.  As the children are given to surviving family members things become stranger and stranger and these children do no seem to be themselves.  But if not themselves…

then who…or what are they?



The Three is the type of book that captures my attention right away.  Fantastic book cover, a title that makes you want to know more and a synopsis of “WHOA”. ~ Sheila


Not only is The Three a fast paced novel that will grab you right from the start but the format is also brilliant and refreshing.  Written in corresponding letters, phone conversations, blog posts, internet discussions and texts, Page by page The Three unfolds a thrilling tale that will hold you all the way through to the chilling end.

A brilliant first book by author Sarah Lotz.  I for one will be watching for more from her.

  1. I read this awhile back and haven’t posted my review yet because I still haven’t wrapped my head around this book! It was quite possibly the most bizarre book I’ve ever read…but I couldn’t put it down. It was almost like a car (or plane…ha!) crash that you don’t really want to be watching, but you can’t stop!

  2. I skimmed because I am at 68% on my Kindle right now. I hate to say it but I lost interest in the book and put it down for Goldfinch and never picked it up again. I will though. Just to find out how it all ends.

  3. I’ve been hearing so many rave reviews of this book – glad to hear you liked it, too. My dad is being treated for cancer, and I have been sending him piles of books to keep him busy and distracted – I think this one will go in the next shipment!
