    Having made sure that this was NOT a zombie novel thank you to the kind reader on Goodreads who reassured me on that point I embarked on this horror novel with interest It is only 548 pages – long but not massively so However the paperback version of this was a real doorstopper and it took me a while to read as I could not face lugging it about with me on my daily commute That said I was always keen to pick it up and found it a really interesting readThe premise is that a group of people are taking a short cruise from Sweden to Finland This is a very much a ‘booze cruise’ although there are families aboard However the ferry ‘The Baltic Charisma’ is run down the security staff on board have to deal with public drunkenness and for many of the assorted passengers this is just a chance to let your hair down and party The idea is a good one – a closed environment with no escape from the ship and danger on boardWhat makes this work though are the characters You see events through various people’s eyes; from those who work on the ship some fearing that they may soon lose their jobs others tired of the relentless trips and those of the passengers – again some who are thrilled to be on board and ready to take every opportunity to drink and party and others who are there through no choice of their own Among the characters that really grabbed my attention were Albin a young Vietmanese boy who was adopted by a Swedish couple and who dislikes his bullying father Dan Appelgren stuck singing his Eurovision hit on board forever aided by drugs barman Filip and many others These characters come alive and you do care what happens to them I don’t really read a lot of horror – I prefer reading the genre to watching films I suppose if you are a devotee then you will not find this that scary However it is certainly well written An interesting idea with an excellent realistic setting and a good cast of characters I enjoyed it a lot and would read by this author

    Blood Cruise or Färjan in Swedish is a horror novel written by Mats Strandberg who is touted as being Sweden's Stephen King I'm surprised this is my first time hearing of him but that may be down to the fact that I only got into the horror genre recently Before that I had wrongly assumed that my dislike for horror movies also tranferred over to books That is not the case I now thoroughly enjoy a little horror sprinkled between my favourite genresA booze cruise departs from Finland and is on its way to Sweden when an unfortunate series of events take place It is the middle of the night and the ship is cut off from outside contact Noone knows who they can or can't trust Welcome aboard the Baltic CharismaKudos to whoever wrote the synopsis it lures you in without revealing the detail of the story Very well done I enjoyed the original setting a lot although I have been on a few cruises and I know that I will go on many in the future I do know that the next time I board I will be reminded of this story It wouldn't stop me going as once you've been on a cruise you won't ever return to staying in one resort for a fortnightThis is one terrifying and realistic horror that gave me a few nightmares You know it's good when you find elements of the story in your dreams His portrayal of everyday events is nuanced and believable I didn't realise this was initially released in 2015 but that is neither here nor there I suppose All in all an interesting read and one I will remember for a long time whether I like it or notMany thanks to Jo Fletcher Books for an ARC I was not reuired to post a review and all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own

    35 starsI've been going back and forth on whether or not to rate this 3 stars or 4 stars because the first half of this book is pure character development and its pretty slow It seemed to drag on and on so much so that I put it aside for a while unsure if I would even continue it Then one day I decided what the hell let's give it another go I'm glad I did because the second half of this 500 page monstrosity was non stop action and gore They were supposedly on a 24 hour cruise but damn for all the shit that happened I felt like we sailed around the world and back again I imagine if I was on that ship though outrunning crazed vampires I would've felt the same way It was pretty intense I definitely recommend if you're a horror fan and don't mind a little slow burn before the main attraction Just make sure you've blocked out a considerable chunk of reading time or better yet a nice long cruise

    I keep getting impressed by Swedish horror This is a uite long and very well written story about a ferry of drunk Swedes a horror story in itself that also happens to contain something else I love the concept and the execution is great A BIG is how the ending doesn't disappoint because they often do


  6. Richard Howard Richard Howard says:

    This is how Stephen King used to write when his books were still scary The author is certainly not afraid of killing off major characters His observations of drunken passengers on the Baltic booze cruise are very accurate in fact it's difficult to decide whether their behaviour is worse before or after their 'change' There is plenty of gore but it is never gratuitous and the characters are well drawn Kudos to the translator too

    The Stockholm cruise is something of a cultural institution in Finland The ferries − perhaps aptly described as floating shopping malls − take passengers between Helsinki or Turku and Stockholm with a brief stop at Mariehamn to get the alcohol sales exempt from the famously high Nordic alcohol taxation The cruises themselves are dirt cheap and discount vouchers and special offers are the norm rather than the exception I've had a cabin to myself for 15 eurosIt is a very comfortable way to travel between Finland and Sweden if one has the time to spare The ferry companies can undercut even the cheapest of discount airlines because they are far better positioned to sell their passengers food And alcohol Especially alcohol My view is from the Finnish side but the only way the Swedes seem to look at the concept differently is that they call it the Finland boatThere also exists the concept of the 23 hour cruise where the ship stops at each end of the trip just to let out and take on passengers who then disembark the next day at the same port where they stepped aboard The trip itself is the destination The boat is the attraction Though there's stuff to keep children occupied overall the air is of an adult amusement park Booze is cheap there's karaoke a fine selection of restaurants and the promise of meeting people you will never meet again What happens on the Stockholm ferry stays on the Stockholm ferryThis also means you can't get out There's a wealth of horror fiction about the Stockholm ferryI took Ristely − The Cruise − as my reading just before a student cruise finishing it in the bar waiting for the boarding to start I was far less interested in the cruise after thatIt's ostensibly a vampire novel though because of how Strandberg's interpretation of vampirism works I would rather classify it as a zombie story with the exception that there are a pair of clear villains a child vampire and the has been night club singerThe story is told in chapters from the points of view of its different protagonists − a child with an unhappy family a former employee who brought his boyfriend to see where he once worked an older woman who booked the cruise on a lark a younger woman out to party the nightclub singer and most importantly the ship herself Baltic Charisma The ship is the most interesting of the lot The book's description of the cruise experience is loaded with bile in a way that had me nodding my head There's the buffet restaurant that's not uite as high end as it's letting on complete with customer operated wine taps There are the violent drunks the barf in all the wrong places the passengers thinking it's glamorous the worn out and faintly dirty cabins whose bathrooms invariably smell of deathIt's a far too familiar shipThroughout the first half of the book the people engage in their personal problems while the vampire infection still spreads unnoticed Then it can no longer be contained and the rest of the book becomes a zombie story and people start dying left and right in graphic ways that veer very close to splatter without I think uite crossing over This part of the book is much less interesting but the first half uite makes up for it The characters are interesting Zombies I have never found interestingStrandberg's vampire mythology also comes with a suspension of disbelief issue Vampirism is extremely easily transmitted and turns the victim initially into a rage zombie that then over days or months would reclaim a personality There's just no damn way I can see how something like that would be able to uphold a masuerade for any length of time It works for the length of a single novel thoughOverall Risteily was a fun book and someone who dislikes zombies less than I do would probably enjoy it even I especially appreciated the cruise descriptions which felt far too true to life I was already feeling done with the Stockholm boat but Mats Strandberg may have delivered the coup de grace This is not a bad thing

    It's a bit of an exaggeration considering this horror It's a fun ride but it's not exactly terrifying at least not for me not at any point However this is an absolutely delicious gossip novel that shows human nature from its worst side The book follows the fates of a handful of people going on an alcohol binge on a mini cruise between Sweden and Finland The horrors of so many lost hopes collecting in one place is indeed terrible The characterisations are brilliant I loved every sorry fate described On the ferry is a woman and her son They are not exactly human any The son goes beserk Everyone on the ferry is doomed But how will our beloved characters die? And who will live? Absolutely entartaining absolutely not particularly horrifying No regrest though

    Trigger warnings blood Seriously So much blood Death violence gore eyeball trauma stabbings death of basically any type of familial relationship friendship or romantic relationship you can think of So for some reason based on the cover of this book I thought it was going to be a haunted cruise ship type of a deal So colour me surprised when this was a vampire book A VAMPIRE BOOK Not even remotely what I was expecting but a fast paced and compelling story that I nonetheless enjoyed the hell out of There were probably a couple too many perspectives for my liking but I honestly spent the whole book with absolutely no idea of who was going to survive and who wasn't It kept me guessing throughout the ending wasn't what I expected and it was basically non stop vampire mayhem good times I'm definitely glad I read this even though there was far eyeball trauma than I would have liked

    He muses that the only real thing on board is the gluttony the greed the insatiabilityI'm not going to say much about Blood Cruise so that I don't give anything away This book has such a fun concept and the idea of being trapped on a cruise ship feallg freaks me out I liked that the book had short chapter and once it got going it was pretty easy to figure out who was who This book is kind of like a very gory character study My only complaint is that it went on for way too long This book is over 500 pages and I definitely think some of it could have been cut down Overall I did like it and I hope horror stories are translated from Mats Strandberg
