Overview

Darkness On The Edge Of Town by Brian Keene

One morning the residents of Walden, Virginia, woke up to find the rest of the world gone. Just . . . gone.

Surrounding their town was a wall of inky darkness, plummeting Walden into permanent night. Nothing can get in - not light, not people, not even electricity, radio, TV, internet, food, or water. And nothing can get out. No one who dared to penetrate the mysterious barrier has ever been seen again. Only their screams were heard.

But for some, the darkness is not the worst of their fears. Driven mad by thirst, hunger, and perpetual night, the residents of Walden are ready to explode. The last few sane prisoners of this small town must prepare a final stand against their neighbors, themselves, and something even worse . . . something out there . . . in the darkness .

I have a Nook and I also have a Kindle (latest one). This eBook at Amazon is free, Barnes & Noble charges $5.59. I noticed that Amazon offers a lot more eBooks for free or at lower prices than Barnes & Noble. Get with it B&N, my Nook needs to be fed!

I highly recommend all of Keene's books, he has original ideas and develops most of his characters very well. The human element is almost worse than what the characters face in the dark. Keene scares the hell out of me with the depths of madness this town must face and I really believe this is how people will act when faced with a situation like this! Read everything he writes you won't be sorry

I'm so excited to see that I can get his latest release for my Nook too! I finished this book just a couple day after it came in the mail. It has a great spooky vibe to it and continues the bigger themes in Keene's other books. I do agree that the open ending are a bit bleak.. but they are the way so many of them end. If you are a fan of horror pick up this fun read!

That's it. Just "eh". This story just sort of fell flat with me. I keep finding that I enjoy much of his storytelling until he brings in the 'darkside' and black magic and such. I don't really find this creepy, and "creepy" is what I'm really looking for in a horror book. And I'm getting tired of the hopeless tone of Keene's stories. They are dark and bleak and I'm left with little hope when the story is over. That's not what I like. I love a happy ending. An ending of possibilities and good things. An ending with a solid closing (I hate when they leave them open-ended. I don't want to imagine how the story might have ended. I like to be told how it did end.) So this was one of those stories which started out developing all nice and fat, and then just deflated disappointingly for me.

This story was pointless garbage. The characters were worthless and unlikable and the dialogue was terrible! Everything on Earth is destroyed by darkness but one small town in Virginia. The town is completely covered by darkness and everyone starts going crazy and killing each other with depraved methods. So it was really actually pointless that this one town was spared. How can humans survive without sun?, impossible! The idea is only partially explained and I guess it wasn't caused by demons. Whatever! There is no resolution in the end and you just have to assume that everyone dies.
