Book Description

12 April 2012 The Concrete Grove Trilogy
Twenty years ago three young boys staggered out of an old building, tired and dirty yet otherwise unharmed. Missing for a weekend, the boys had no idea of where they'd been. But they all shared the same vague memory of a shadowed woodland grove…and they swore they'd been gone for only an hour. When Simon returns to the Concrete Grove to see his old friends and unearth painful memories from his childhood, things once buried begin to claw their way back to the surface. The hummingbirds are flying again, bringing a warning of something terrible. Bad dreams take on physical form and walk the streets of the estate. A dark, hideously patient entity is calling once again from the shadows, reaching out towards three terrified boys who have now grown into emotionally damaged men. And the past is about to catch up with them all, staining their lives with a darkness they could never truly escape. Welcome back to the Concrete Grove. The place you can never really leave...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Near as perfect horror novel 28 April 2012
Silent Voices is the second part of Gary McMahon's loosely teird together Concrete Grove Trilogy. Those of you who are familiar with my blog will know that Gary is held in the highest regard here at Ginger Nut Central, and The Concrete Grove, was one of, if not my favourite read of last year. Those of you not familiar with Gary's writing, you really are missing out on one the best horror writers of our generation. His novels and short stories are never easy reads, they will grab your heart mind and soul and proceed to kick seven shades of hell out of them. When you turn the last page of a McMahon novel, you may well be battered and bruised but you will also realise that you have just read a damn fine piece of fiction.

Silent Voices, reads like an extremely personal novel Gary has written some very moving passages on childhood friendship, parents and the feelings of regret, loss and what if. Linking these themes together is a brilliantly plotted story that combines terrific other worldly horror with that of the horror of modern life. The Concrete Grove and the area is a wonderful creation, I love how the horror and despair of the town has been ingrained in the lives of those who populate the area. it almost feels as though the citizens themselves have been possessed by the evil and transformed in soulless demons prowling the streets praying on the helpless and feeding on their misery.

The three main characters of this novel are all brilliant creations, they are so well formed you begin to wonder which is based on Gary and who exactly Gary based the other two on. They are all deeply flawed, the psychological scars they carry run deep, and have shaped their lives ever since that fateful night.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hyped up 14 Sep 2012
Because of the glowing' review I read here, I read this book and rather than be dismissive of the work of the author will simply say not my cup of tea. Like all things in life, don't believe the hype.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the finest tradition of Clive Barker 5 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a compelling horror novel. The bleak urban setting is in the finest tradition of Clive Barker, and Gary McMahon populates his novel with convincing and fascinating characters. The horror element is excellent, with a real sense of weirdness happening to the three friends, rooted in a horrific childhood experience. Definitely a novel for true horror fans to read. Get it now.

The Concrete Grove, the first book in the Concrete Grove trilogy, delivered and promised so much. It delivered a fantastic piece of urban horror, laced with dark fantasy that led me to describe Gary McMahon as "the outstanding British horror writer of our times". It promised so much as it gave us, what I thought were " tantalising glimpses of a much deeper mythology" and left the way clear for the author to fully dive into his dark mythos in the subsequent books. Now we have Silent Voices, the second book in the trilogy and at last we can see if the author has kept his promise.

While the first book largely crept around the edges of the mythology of the Concrete Grove, a deprived urban area in Northumberland, this book gets to the heart of the matter. Here we meet Brendan, Simon and Marty who as young boys ventured in to The Needle, a derelict tower block at the physical and metaphysical centre of the Concrete Grove, where something happened that still reverberates through their lives today. That something haunts the boys, now men and has shaped their lives in different but always difficult ways. Brendan is the only one with a "normal" family life but is stricken by terrible, debilitating acne, Simon is a millionaire businessman but one who has troubled relationships and Marty has turned to violence competing in bare knuckle boxing after the tragic loss of his girlfriend. Simon decides to buy The Needle and get the boys back together to finally face their demons.

The first part of the book explores these troubled characters and the lives of those around them, giving real depth to both them and the area. We meet the boys as youngsters and join them as they first enter The Needle and the horrific events that subsequently haunted them are gradually revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best novels I've read in years. 3 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gary McMahon is a rising star in dark fiction and reading this it's easy to see why. The main characters are beautifully portrayed and so rounded that it almost seems as though you know them personally, and not all of them are nice. Yes, you will have nightmares and like me, may find yourself placing the book down now and again just to take a breather, only to pick it up again eager to return to the incredibly realised nightmare world. The plot,as mentioned above centres around 3 men who years ago, as boys, went missing in the Concrete Grove (the housing estate in which the trilogy is set)and how, now, as adults the event has, and continues to shapes their lives. Gary's skill at drip feeding revelation after revelation will have you turning the pages long into the night, eager to crack the novels depths. And there is depth here. If you have been disappointed with some of the horror / fantasy books of late then i highly recommend you pick this up. I will be very surprised if you will read a horror novel of this caliber this year. Bloody brilliant.
