"Abandon hope, all readers who enter Schreiber's taut, scary debut: you're not going anywhere until you devour every one of its tension-filled pages. Readers will anxiously await his next outing." ( Publishers Weekly)

Horror ruined by whining
What would have made Eat the Dark better?
Okay, so maybe I expect too much from narrators but the child voice she uses was so whiney and shrill that I finally just had to stop listening. Nobody should have to listen to that.
What could Joe Schreiber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The setting in the hospital made it intriguing but it eventually just seemed to slide into a typical slasher film. Much of the suspsense is just ruined by familiarity.
How could the performance have been better?
A different narrator would have been the only way to save this one.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was disappointed in the paint by numbers quality of the story. Good start but it just goes downhill from there. Just meh.
