Bedbugs by Ben H. Winters

Bedbugs by Ben H. Winters

Reading this book will probably give you the creeps and make you start scratching yourself; it sure did with me.  The beginning of the story is pretty typical for a horror novel: a couple finds a great apartment that’s got everything they need, in a good neighborhood, and for rent that’s way less than it should be.  But, as it turns out, the brownstone apartment in Brooklyn IS too good to be true!  Susan, an artist and stay-at-home mom, becomes convinced that their apartment is infested with bedbugs, but neither the celebrity exterminator or her doctor can find any evidence of this.  As the book continues, readers, along with the husband Alex, begin to wonder if it’s all in Susan’s imagination,or if there really is a bug problem.  Just keep in mind that everyone may not really be the way they seem; as the saying goes: looks can be deceiving!

Despite the repulsive and disturbing  subject of bedbugs, this book kept me on the edge of my seat during the entire reading.  I really appreciated the ending, because it was not at all what I was expecting!  I highly recommend this to horror fans, aged fourteen and older.

Here’s a book trailer you can watch from home:
