Product Description

Review

'Grounded in a tale of Mephistophelian friendship, THE CAVE ambitiously bursts its bounds, shifting Krabbe's expert structuring through Graham Greene-esque travelougue, haunting thriller and, finally, the kind of cosmic hymn to coincidence Alex Garland aimed for in THE TESSERACT' The Face 'Short, spare and unflinchingly dark' The Times 'Krabbe's carefully constructed narrative has a geometry so precise that the patterns buried under the surface emerge only in the final pages' New York Times 'Like that classic 1980s film THE VANISHING, based on a novel by Krabbe, [THE RIDER]is a story of dark obsession...Best read in one sitting, it is a book full of insight into the whys and wherefores of a sport that is frightening in its intensity' Sunday Times

4.0 out of 5 stars A missing lover Aug. 7 2007
By Yvonne Kirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A man, famous in the Netherlands, is delayed in Sydney for 4 hours on his way home. His collegues decided to take a trip into the city, and he decides to go looking for an ex-girlfriend. He finds her and she takes him with her on a ride across Australia, as she flees the law.

Fast paced the book was an easy read. Some chapters have hints of history, but the main character seemed a weak willed individual, easily bullied by an ex-love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Fun Read Oct. 15 2013
By Louis Mauriello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great ending, good story. I liked the way the author told the story mostly from the viewpoint of the one character but occasionally from a third party perspective almost as if a reporter was telling the tale. The aspect of how the male character gets caught up in and swept away into the female character's world was interesting.

I read this immediately following "The Cave" and "The Vanishing" just before that, so I was well entrenched in the world that Krabbè creates and how he does so.
