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.
