“Lark was a religious community: participation was expected, baptism a stipulation.” “…but soon the fog would descend, making Lark unreachable. Unleavable. There would be no more ships until April.”—from Impossible Causes.
Atmospheric combination of The Village and Carrie sets the scene in this coming-of-age gothic horror thriller. I expected to love Impossible Causes. But somehow I never fully believed the plot. However, if you like a heavy atmosphere and some of the lesser M. Night Shyamalan movies, you may enjoy it. 3 stars.
Thanks to Bloomsbury Publishing and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
