Review: Darker Shadows Lie Below
Darker Shadows Lie Below by Al Barrera
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of Darker Shadows Lie Below in return for an honest review.
I'm not feeling this one, it's dragging out too much. I'm 50% in and it's not been holding my attention. I keep putting it down and picking it up hoping that it will catch my interest but it's not.
It feels like nothing is happening or it's not happening fast enough. Dr Kent seems to have done nothing but drive back and forth to the hospital, suffer from insomnia/nightmares, moan a lot and talk to a few patients.
It's not that it's a bad story, it may pick up in the second half, it's just not doing it for me. I'm not feeling the atmosphere at all, which it should have tons of considering the building and the kind of story it is. I can't connect to the characters at all, they feel dull and boring. I keep finding myself thinking of the other books I could be reading instead, when I should be enjoying what I'm reading.
