Review: The Three

The Three

Publication Date: May 22nd 2014

Black Thursday. The day that will never be forgotten. The day that four passenger planes crash, at almost exactly the same moment, at four different points around the globe.

There are only four survivors. Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt. But they are not unchanged.

And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone.

A message that will change the world.

The message is a warning.


I didn't know what to expect from The Three, contemporary mixed in with horror? Paranormal? It's what was great about going into it, the synopsis is pretty vague and no way is it an open book. That being said, It's inevitable that when it comes to Armageddon, The Four Horsemen and the end of the world, we are, at some point, going to point straight to Religion. However, I just didn't expect The Three to rest heavily on it. And it did. For most of it.
