In Darkness

by Nick Lake

Bloomsbury Publishing | January 11, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

In Darkness is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.
This is the story of "Shorty"-a 15-year-old boy trapped in a collapsed hospital during the earthquake in Haiti. Surrounded by the bodies of the dead, increasingly weak from lack of food and water, Shorty begins to hallucinate. As he waits in darkness for a rescue that may never come, a mystical bridge seems to emerge between him and Haitian leader Toussaint L'Ouverture, uniting the two in their darkest suffering-and their hope.


A modern teen and a black slave, separated by hundreds of years. Yet in some strange way, the boy in the ruins of Port au Prince and the man who led the struggle for Haiti's independence might well be one and the same . . .

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Decent Read In Darkness is a raw, harrowing book about the twisted cruelties of man and nature, and the ongoing struggle for a countries survival. It brings vibrant characters which instantly create a deep connection with the reader. Although at certain points, due to the time skips of “now and then” and their constant intertwining the context can be quite confusing and difficult to follow. Continuing on that the slang of the writing style can be misinterpreted in one doesn’t previously understand the terms. In Darkness brings to light the difficult times of developing countries and their never ending struggle; a very interesting but difficult read overall.
