A very thrilling read that keeps you at the edge of your seat. The stories will remain embeded in your mind and you will never see water the same way again. My favorite story is 'The Hold' because of its great use of irony.
Koji Suzuki displays his finesse for the haunted tale with these eerie, water-themed tales. If you liked 'Ring' or any of the films he's been invloved with, 'Dark Water' is for you. The stories 'Dream Cruise' and 'The Hold' are especially spine tingling.
