Brutal, Sickinning, Fun

Any additional comments?

This is one of the more messed up books you are likely to read (listen to). It features depravity on a level that cannot be seen on screen. It takes your mind, and makes you an accomplice to these horrific murders, because you are the one imagining them. The sicker you are as a person, the sicker this book will appear in your head. Which, I think, is the point. The story revolves around 2 good people stuck in a shitstorm of sickness and evil that threatens to suck away their morality. With each new scene you can feel their character and beliefs slowly cracking under the strain, because you, the listener, are feeling the same strain. You will leave this story feeling dirty, as if you have third degree stains on your skin and they won't wash out. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then by all means forge ahead into the Darkness, let it take your hand and show you how fun it can be to witness evil. Because it is a good time, a story written by a man at the top of his craft. Lehane knows how to shock you, but never does so unless he needs to, thus allowing the twists to be that much more effective. Read the book(or listen) if you think you can take it
