If You Like Drew Magary Books, You’ll Love…

The Hike is one of Magary’s best works and a wholly unique story. The book sees a suburban man named Ben who goes on a business trip in rural Pennsylvania. One morning he decides to go onto a short hike and ends up lost. The path that he ends up on is nowhere near the hotel he was staying at and instead takes him into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons, and colossal insects. The hike turns into a life-or-death proposition with the possibility of getting back to his family seeming less and less likely by the minute.

Magary’s third novel is called Point B and was released in 2020. The book takes place in a world where teleportation has been invented and the invention has changed the world. The story sees a girl named Anna who has dreams of using the PortPhones to hunt down the man who murdered her sister. The only problem is she doesn’t know who he is or where to find him. She’s at the prestigious Druskin Academy where she is roomed with Lara, the inventor of PortPhones’s daughter, and the two are falling in love. Now, Lara has gone missing and Anna will find out just how far she’s willing to go to find her.
