These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps?

You hear the sound travel through a long hallway, and come back to you. You hear it bounce off the—concrete? You take another step.

What's New

You run. The game works on one premise: Sound is everything. You, the player, are represented on the screen by a small pair of white footprints. As you move through the pitch black world by tapping , you make noise, which is represented by white lines radiating from your footprints.

The noise-lines bounce off of things—walls, water, doors I want plot! I want characterisation! But I'm not giving up on it. I am going to p I'm currently suffering the extremely unpleasant task of wading through Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian on audio. I am going to push through to the end and try to work out why it's lauded by critics and hailed as being an important work of literature.

And why do I mention this here on a review for Dark Echo? Well I almost guarantee that the majority of people who read Blood Meridian won't have heard of F. I totally guarantee that the book reviewers in the NYT and The Guardian, who hailed McCarthy's spew of words, won't have a clue about this excellent author and so he'll never get such prominent publicity for his books.

How's that for holding interest? There is a palpable sense of menace about this story. All its elements are brought together to add to a sense of dread that begins on the very first page. Weather is used particularly effectively: storms and rain battering old shipyards on the south coast of England buy into a almost physical manifestation of the evil unfolding. Of course, McCarthy uses weather too a lot.

But in Blood Meridian, everything is always as if or like , nothing is ever just left to the reader's own imagination. It's simile on steroids. In Dark Echo, as the protagonists battle to renovate this horrible boat, the weather brings fog, driving rain, cold, but we are left with the characters to interpret this how we wish. And it's the more unnerving for that. I have no idea who chose the cover of this edition because it has absolutely nothing to do with the story, but makes it look like a Daphne Du Maurier romance for some reason.

As usual, I'll update when done This held its excellent level of tension and interest right to the end. Once the protagonists were aboard the Dark Echo, the story narrator changes to someone researching into the background of the events which lead to the damnation of the boat and its previous owner. It's an exciting read with really likeable characters. I imagine some readers would have issue with the resolution of the story, but I found it intriguing and humbling. Excellent read, highly recommended.

I felt that this one worked a lot better plotwise and the flow and pacing was much stronger than in his debut work, though I do think I like the storyline of the first one better.

I love the way Cottam handles the intermingling of historical figures with his modern day hauntings - something that I appreciated even more after reading the heavy-handed Shadow of Cottam rises to the occasion again.

The book was nicely atmospheric and satisfied in that old school horror vein. I much preferred this to Adam Nevill's work I noticed a street in here named 'Nevill' - I didn't know if this was some sort of shout out or homage, or if this is an actual street in the UK? I think Cottam does a better job with mood and suspense than Nevill did, especially in Banquet for the Damned. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good ghost story. Oct 06, F.

To be fair though, I did like the character of demonic jazz-age rogue Harry Spalding. View all 3 comments. Absolutely fantastic spooky novel - the best I've read for years; in fact I'd rather given up on the genre coming up with anything new.

But FG Cottam's use of old music, crackling old radio transmissions, outfits, like spats, etc, on a haunted boat, which obviously you can't get off as you're crossing the Atlantic, adds something new to the horror novel. I was taken by Dark Echo right from the very first page. It was unputdownable. The story was told from the perspective of Martin Stannard. He accompanied his father, Magnus to buy a boat for his retirement plan. The boat was the famous Dark Echo, once belonged to Harry Spalding.

It didn't take long though before they noticed there was more to the boat. There were the unexplained accidents that befell the workers who tried to restore the boat, its enigmatic first owner, and the boat's own I was taken by Dark Echo right from the very first page. There were the unexplained accidents that befell the workers who tried to restore the boat, its enigmatic first owner, and the boat's own mysterious past.

All in all, these provided a good chilly build up for the story. Cottam also blending in few historical figures such as Mick Collins, Harry Boland who were portrayed in ways that made me want to learn more about them , and mentioned few others such as Bricktop, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway etc.

The First World War also had a major part in explaining the connections and solving the ultimate mystery of the dark force. In fact, the prologue took place during WWI. The book introduced various characters; and they each had a distinctive voice. My favorite characters were Suzanne, Martin's girlfriend and Jayne Boyte. I liked Suzanne right from her first appearance.

We saw further of her character development when the story was switch from Martin's first person of view to Suzanne in third in person. She was smart, intelligent, resourceful and I found to be admirable. Her love for Martin and her not giving up the fight in order to save him and his father made her much more likable to me. I enjoyed reading from her perspective more than that of Martin's.

As for Jayne Boyte, she was a fun and remarkable woman for her era. And maybe in a way, she was reincarnated as Suzanne. The few things I didn't like was one, I thought the story was a bit dragging prior to the voyage; two, the ending was disappointing. After the sinister build up, I expected more or at least a twisty dark ending.

Your Internet Explorer is out of date.

Three, there was one instance where Martin mentioned something that seemed important at the beginning, but then it was never brought up again. So, that was a little meh. Dec 24, Karl Drinkwater rated it liked it. The book began interesting: for the first half I was truly riveted.

It was filled with eerie ideas, and I looked forward to what was going to happen. There was a great build up of tension to the point the story had been working towards, the start of the ill-fated voyage, and it left me excited at the prospect of things going up a further notch. But then Tension and credibility floated away and all the great elements seemed to fizzle as an anti-climax. I noticed a l The book began interesting: for the first half I was truly riveted. I noticed a lot of other reviewers enjoyed the start but then felt the book floundered as it got further on.

Compared to what went before it switched from scary hints to chatty ghosts, and the previously-strong father folded like paper. Then they took to a cabin and pretty much disappeared from the novel until the final scene. We find out the ship had decayed around them: it sounded fascinating and creepy but we see nothing of it - instead the novel switches to a far less interesting slow detective mystery, full of coincidences.

I felt as I would if I'd been reading The Shining, and at the point when The Overlook got most active Stephen King switched from all that escalating horror to a bunch of scenes set in Scunthorpe involving an archive, then just came back to the hotel for the finale. It wouldn't have worked, and that is, sadly, what happens here. The story becomes more and more conventional, and the intriguing hints turn out to be exactly what you expected: haunted boat, satanic rituals, then it is all tied up with marriage and a baby.

Even the threat is tied in to a conventional Christian God versus Satan worldview, with Jesus relics being snuck in as Macguffins, while priests say prayers to defeat evil. We've seen it all before. Despite the familiarity it is probably a lot more satisfying if you are a Christian and believe it - but for anyone agnostic, atheistic, or who follows a different religion, it all falls apart at that point.

I remember reading Clive Barker's "The Hellbound Heart" and being impressed by his imagination, the way he gave fresh views to ideas of evil and good, convincing portrayals I'd never seen before, that could fit alongside any religion or no religion. Unfortunately Dark Echo devolves into a disappointing set of occurrences that feel overly familiar.

I wouldn't have minded if there hadn't been so much promise and ominousness at the start. Really, the first half was so good that the rest seems weaker by comparison.
