Book Review: Through The Woods by Emily Carroll

Through The Woods

Emily Carroll

Through The Woods a collection of stories,  expresses excellent charactieristics of the Journey subject area, making it a great source for HSC students.
Each page has an underlying darkness, behind the minimalistic art and negative colour lines; with bright prominent reds to show a malevolent presence.
It’s simple, beautiful and extremely creepy.

I loved it!

5/5 stars
