Review: Corridor



By Robin Parrish


On the eve of his seventeenth birthday, Troy Goggin finds himself inexplicably transported to an impossibly huge, miles-long structure called the Corridor. But what is the Corridor, and why was he brought to it?

It’s a place of mystery, wonder, and heart-stopping danger. It will test him and push him both mentally and physically. His only companion is the girl whose voice he hears inside his head, explaining the rules he must follow if he hopes to escape.

But there is much more to this extraordinary place than Troy could ever imagine. The Corridor’s true purpose — the biggest mystery of all — is revealed only to those who make it to the end.

My Rating: 5 stars!

This book is amazing. Fantastic. Any word for really good that you can think of. It's all of those. All I can think of after reading this is, Why haven't I heard of this author before? He's awesome!
Theway Robin Parrish wrote Corridor is what really made me love it. It is so suspenseful. You can't stop reading, because you need to know what happens to Troy. If I did stop, I would just wonder what would happen next. It's addictive.

And the relationship between Troy and Victoria...ohmahgosh it was awesome. It's not your typical, YA, insta-love connection. I'm not sure it can even be classified as a romance throughout most of the book. It's the end that made me sigh with emotion. Literally.   

The book is so unpredictable. You don't know what Troy will have to go through next. Even though I knew he would be okay, because there was still half the story left to go, I sometimes would get anxious becuase that's just the kind of story this is; one that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I need to write about the end. There are no words for the end. It was so wonderful. That's all I can say without giving away major spoilers.

I went in to this book thinking it would be another average read. What I got was a heart-pounding, emotional, obsess worthy story that I wouldn't mind rereading ten times. This is considered 'Christian Fiction', but, though it was very clean, I think anyone can enjoy this awesome story. In all honesty, I didn't realize it was Christian Fiction until I hopped on to Goodreads.  So, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. READ, READ, READ!
