Reviews - What do customers think about Deep in the Darkness?

Dark and Deeply Disturbing Premise, So-So Execution  Jul 5, 2008
Deep in the Darkness, at its heart, is a city folks move to a small town to get away from the stress and dangers that are part and parcel of life in the city. It seem that the "way" of all horror of this type is that ultimately the stress and danger of city life has NOTHING on the dangers lurking in this seemingly quite small town and its surrounding woods. The focus of the novel is the Cayle family (Dr. Michael Cayle; his wife, Christine; and Jessica, their daughter) and their seeming good luck of finding an existing country practice with a town in serious need of a regular (and exclusively theirs) doctor. What at first seems to be their incredible good luck, quickly becomes something else entirely...something the whole town knows about and which they conspire to draw the Cayle family into. Deep in the Darkness has an interesting premise with a seriously creepy vibe yet somehow manages to fall short of being a great read. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it...but the amount of disbelief I had to suspend really kept Deep in the Darkness from being the book it wanted to be.

Overall, Deep in the Darkness has good bones and great creep factor but ultimately doesn't deliver...especially at the end, I was a little disappointed with the ending (it felt like a cop out). I give it three stars; Laimo successfully takes the reader on a journey from YEA holy cow in this supernatural horror novel and best of all, it's a quick read (I read it in one evening...about 4 hours)!! I'd definitely read more by this author despite my disappointments with this particular book...he's got a twisted take on the world that is an enjoyable part of his work.
Good Book  Jul 1, 2008
First time I've read something by this author. During the first two thirds of the book, I didn't really care what happened to the characters, but I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. Once I got over the hump, I was unable to put the book down. I'm looking forward to reading more this author's writing.
Read this one as fast as possible!  Apr 12, 2008
I took about 4 & a half days to read this book & that was about a day & a half too long. The plot is silly & absurd. You shouldn't spend one moment of thought on how logical the story is. That will start to ruin it for you. It reminds me of early Graham Masterton. You decide if thats a good thing or not.
Starts off slow, but takes off!  Feb 7, 2008
I had this book sitting in my closet for quite a while before I took the plunge to read it. As an ex-subscriber to the Leisure Horror Book Club, I just hadn't had the time to read in a while.
Well, after finally finding the time, I dug this out of the closet and started reading. It didn't grab me at first, for no reason that I could determine, but after a short while, the story picked up, got going, and never slowed down.

I'm not usually one for the whole "small, deadly creatures in the woods" stories, but this was really well written, and the protagonist in particular, was a character that kept my interest, and I wanted to know what happened next.

I'm not going to summarize the plot of this story into a Cliff-Notes spoiler of the story.
Just know this, while it's the classic, "city-boy moves to the country, and discovers a redneck town keeping a BIG secret in the woods", it's very well told in the 1st person perspective, and had enough gore and suspense to keep me turning the pages at every opportunity I got.
Apparently, there's even a sequel that is already written, but according to the author, he needs to do well with the sales of his new novel "Fires Rising" for the publishing company to green-light it.

I had a lot of fun reading this novel, and I really hope Mr. Laimo gets the go-ahead to publish the sequel.
In the meantime, I've already pre-ordered my copy of "Fires Rising", and I'll be happy if it's even half as good as "Deep in the Darkness".

Look out Stephen King here comes Michael Laimo  Jan 31, 2008
Iam an avid book reader and read one book a week. I had recently stopped reading horror then got turned back into it while reading reviews for this book by Michael Laimo.

Deep in the Darkness was/is a fast page turner that kept me up til the early hours of the morning (as I was eager to find out what was going to happen next),probably due to the fact that this book is very detail oriented with a phenominal story line.

Unlike most books I have read the characters in this book are NOT the one dimensional types that most authors (including best selling authors)create.Each character has their own personality and their own beliefs,thoughts,and ideas.

It is easily noticable that Michael Laimo put allot of hard work,dedication,and thought into his book. This is my first time reading a book by this author and it definately wont be my last. I was so intrigued with his writing that I just ordered : Atmosphere,Dead Souls,Demonologist,and Pre-Ordered Fires Rising. I strongly suggest this book and cant wait for the part two to be released.
