Darker Than You Think
on 18 August 2017
This was one of the finest works of suspense-driven horror that I have EVER read.
On one hand, it's a story of supernatural evil that gets unleashed by the unearthing of an inexplicable shrine inside a mysterious, and totally secret mine. Five experts are brought in by the authorities, to explain the "accidents" that had besieged the miners, and to assess the safety of the mine. Then, predictably, things go very very wrong.
On the other hand, this is a story of deep and disturbingly human evil. As one character after another went through his or her individual hell, befitting the evil inflicted upon others by himself, or herself, we started realising what a unique purgatory, with all possible layers, have been created by the author, for us.
Above all, the book was absolutely unputdownable.
The only reason behind me dropping one star is the mind-numbing pain & shock caused by the ending, which could have been different, easily.
Even then, Recommended, obviously.
