    This is the second Abyss Paperback I ve read, and I m discovering this these horror novels are grotesque, challenging, and often buck typical horror tradition And while Nancy Holder s Dead in the Water doesn t quite reach the levels of The Cipher, it is still a very good, and involving, story Like Kathe Koja s debut novel, Water is psychologically demanding and does not give up all its secrets at once or even when the final page is turned And unlike The Cipher, this novel is filled with likable characters the readers can root for characters I was afraid for, too.Despite a somewhat flabby middle section, this is a gripping and horrific nautical novel about ghosts and possession and cabin fever And unlike many genre novels, this one definitely sticks the landing thus rendering any flaws in the chapters leading up to the climax forgivable The last two chapters are chilling, and I am happy to say the author thoroughly shocked me in the final passages Highly recommended

    This is the freakiest, and perhaps the most frightening book I have ever read Passangers aboard the freighter Morris believe they are headed toward Hawaii for vacation Will they ever get there No The Morris goes under and the shipwrecked passengers are rescued by the Pandora Are the passengers saved No The Pandora is a ghost ship and the passengers the young and wealthy married couple, Phil and Elise Van Buren John Fielder and his cancer stricken son Matt Donna, a cop haunted by memories of a boy who drowned and Ruth, an old lady who dreams of her dead husband will drown one by one haunted by their fears, desires, and many others who have drowned before them in the fog This book was excellent, gripping, original, deserving of the Bram Stoker Award I highly recommend it, but beware of the message in the bottle.

    3.5 stars Given I am the perfect target audience for this book, I feel like I should have liked it WAY than I did.

    This book began incredibly well, with an unsettling and eerie atmosphere and vibrant writing, but it quickly got incredibly boring, dull and unoriginal to the point where I was happy to be done reading it and then I donated it to a thrift store so that it wouldn t take up space.

    Good god What a scary book.The first part had me on the edge of my seat chewing on my nails I can see why it won the Bram Stoker for 1994.It starts out chilling in telling you how you are going to drown and doesn t let up from there.This is a story about a bunch of people who are in a ship wreck and what happens to them once they are rescued from the sea.There are a lot of twists and turns so that the story keeps you off balance but you know something terrifying is just around the corner.And boy is is scary.You have to read this book to get the full flavor of terror.I was not particulrly scared of water before I read this book.Now I am not so sure that I want to play in the waves any on shore.

    The prologue to this book is a taut piece of suspenseful writing I was so excited to read the rest, but unfortunately it s a hot mess repetitive, full of offensive stereotypes and murky in narrative The book is so overstuffed with stream of consciousness narration and baroque tableaus that at several points of the book I couldn t even tell what was supposed to be going on That a female author would conjure female characters as shallow as Donna Almond and Elise Van Buren Hadley is truly disappointing Perhaps Ms Holder is better off as a short story author.

    This is not a good book, but it was kind of fun to read for the super corny dialogue and a few well written horror scenes Overall, though, the plot was unnecessarily convoluted, and the way Holder wrote her main character seemed to be influenced by hundreds of years of bad male writers writing women than anything she knew about women to be actually true Kind of a bummer.

    I remember liking this book back when it came out, but lordy, that was twenty two years ago A lot s changed since then, both in writing trends and in my own experience which, let s be honest, plays as much into a story s success as the writing itself , so it s interesting to revisit the story with that perspective in place I was surprised to realize I remembered pretty much nothing about this story, save it was set on a cruise.Holder starts the story off well, with an opening that conveys the proper dread, atmosphere, and unease, without a single drop of blood or ounce of viscera I appreciate horror that can do this, and it raised my expectations for the rest of the story Unfortunately, she doesn t maintain that style once the story proper gets going But man, those first eight pages would make an excellent short story.We re introduced to our main character and the secondaries in the first few chapters, and everything is progressing well, but once we get on the ship, the story loses a lot of steam It gets repetitive, partly because of the impressionistic style Holder adopts to portray the psychedelic aspects of the story, but also because we keep seeing the same struggles and the same events as the story unfolds It doesn t feel like it develops so much as it flounders.For all that repetition, the book ends suddenly, and we get our answers so quickly that it makes me wonder why it took so long to get there It doesn t help that Holder drops plenty of hints along the way for us to know exactly what s happening, and the characters are left trying to figure things out It could be a good way to develop dread we know the characters are helpless, and get in the mindset that we want to warn them, but can t but it doesn t work here I think it could be due to the characterization the characters are all cliches or caricatures, so it s hard to develop any meaningful connection with them.There s a lot of promise to the story, and it avoids the misogyny I keep finding in horror from this era, so it s not a one star book, but neither is it impressive enough to get above two stars Unfortunately, she falls into that camp of authors where I wouldn t seek out of their fiction, but I wouldn t flat out refuse to read anything else, either It s just mediocre.Abyss 40

    From the first sentence to the last, this story baits, hooks, and reels you in, taking you on a journey of physical, emotional, and psychological horror With a cast of rich, well developed characters, which include a tough as nails female cop, a doctor and his cancer stricken nine year old boy, an elderly woman in search of her husband, and a young couple trapped in a failing marriage, Holder makes you invest in the lives of these people right from the start You care what happens to them and that s what makes this novel so terrifying Interweaving references to poetry such as Coleridge s Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Sandburg s Fog, as well as pop culture like John Carpenter s The Fog, Dead in the Water is the perfect marriage of literary and popular fiction At its core it is a character oriented novel, with every plot twist, every horrific image, every incident reinforcing the character s fears and emotional trauma Holder doesn t pull her punches When bad stuff happens, it really happens The writing here is top notch and Holder seamlessly floats between characters, shifting her voice to suit that of each individual while simultaneously maintaining a narrative flow that drags you through the book like a fishing line Despite being third person, she manages to get so close to these characters it feels, at times, as if it is in first person If you like creepy, atmospheric horror and great characters, do yourself a favor and check out Dead in the Water You may lose a few nights sleep, either from sheer engagement with the story or fear of what might be lurking in the shadows, but trust me, you won t regret it

    I d like the five hours I spent reading this back please.I have to agree with many other readers on a couple of points The first chapter was brilliant, captivating, and utterly scary It made me feel as though I d picked well Spoiler alert I hadn t Unfortunately, as others noted, the story devolved quickly The premise was good but, halfway though, I found myself wishing I was nearer the last page I ll be honest, I skimmed some of the passages in which the level of detail was both confusing and painful When I reached the end, I realized that I didn t really care about any characters or their fates so the inevitable twist we weren t supposed to see coming didn t really seem so much a twist as a last, dying gasp at relevance.With a good editor, half the length and a little cohesion, this could have been good.
