Book Description

20 April 2009
The darkness came without warning. First New York, then the rest of the United States, and then the world became enveloped in a perpetual night without end. With no sunlight, eventually the planet will wither and die, bringing on a new Ice Age. But, that isn't a problem for the human race, for humanity will be dead long before that happens. There is something in the dark, creatures only seen in nightmares, and they are on the prowl. Evolution has changed and man is no longer the dominant species. When we are children, we are told not to fear the dark, that what we believe to exist in the shadows is false. Unfortunately, that is no longer true.

Deep into that Darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before......Poe

A fantastic quote for a fantastic book.

I am a sucker for monster, Zombie and Apocolyptic fiction and so is Anthony Giangregorio it seems. The Author embodies everything I ( and plenty of others ) want in horror fiction. He is a powerhouse in horror fiction and at last his catalogue is available in the UK.

This excellent novel takes us back to our childhood and being afraid of the dark, only this time with good reason as there really are monsters in the gloom.

The dark arrives swiftly and so does the action, as we follow the fight for survival of a small coastal town plunged into a hell on earth. Fast paced chapters will leave you unable to put the book down.

A superb read
Paul, Cardiff

4.0 out of 5 stars the mist by another name? 8 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
an excellant book don,t get me wrong, but by the time i reached chapter 5, i couldn,t help but wonder whether or not the author had read steven kings the mist, because the similarities between both were startling. lets take a look at what i mean shall we?

in the mist, a group of characters, including the main male protaginist and his son, go to the supermarket to get supplies, only to be trapped there when the mist descends. among the characters in the supermarket, is a woman who the man obviously knows well, especially since they later have sex, despite the fact the man is married. outside in the mist, are creatures of various shapes and sizes. with me so far?

in the dark, a group of characters including the main male protaginist and his son, go to the hardware shop to get supplies (after stopping off at the supermarket) only to be trapped there when the dark descends. among the characters in the hardware shop is a woman that the man dated in the past, and later has sex with ( more on this in a moment) outside in the dark, are creatures of various shapes and sizes. do you see what i mean?

something else i need to mention. is the author trying to get us to hate the main character or what? what sort of man has sex with his ex girlfriend on the floor of a hardware shop, while his wife is at home possibly in mortal danger, and his young son is asleep not more than 2 feet away from him? how are we supposed to care about him when he acts like a complete jerk. to make matters worse, the author trys to explain the mans actions by saying that he is doing it simply to make a connection with another human being, WHATEVER.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good 9 Dec 2008
By Shawn C. Maslow - Published on
I thought that this was a very close storyline to King's "Mist" but nevertheless I enjoyed it very much. There was plenty of action and you can feel for the characters, both joy and heartbreak. As a parent you could feel the emotions as they went through victories and defeats...I would liked to have known or had an idea on how the dark world was created and perhaps a sequel is in the works????

I enjoyed this book but it was very like Stephen Kings The Mist except instead of mist it was the dark.If you liked the mist you'll like this book if you can get past the similarities.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dark - Very Spooky & Reminiscent of SK's The Mist 6 Nov 2009
By Keith E. Hammer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Stephen King's The Mist; and The Dark is very reminiscent of The Mist. Most likely a homage to The Mist is more like it. (However, so was the novel Swan Song by Robert McCammon of Stephen King's The Stand.) This was one very well written horror novel. Characters you root for and some you won't. There were varied themes that seemed to mimic SK's The Mist; but that was part of the fun of this novel. I have since purchased 4 more Anthony Giangregorio Kindle books because of my enjoyment of The Dark. I am a avid reader of GOOD horror novels and hope to enjoy the other 4 books by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-off... just like other stuff he has written. 17 May 2012
By Ray Ford - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a rip-off of Stephen King's "The Mist". You'd think he would have learned his lesson after ripping off George A Romero's Intellectual Property and selling it for profit (and getting caught), then renaming it and changing the character names and putting it back up for sale again. His editing is horrible, and of the books of his that I have read, the ONLY ones worth opening are the ones he ripped off from other writers. Count me out when it comes to buying any of his books ever again. If you are going to self publish through one of your three fake publishing houses Tony, at least use a spell check.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good terrifying read 25 Jan 2010
By Mercedes - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Here's a pretty terrifying story of the world you know being encases in darkness. Pitch black darkness. I don't know what the darkness is, just that it covered New York and the teller of the tale is in Boston when it moves to cover it as well. John and his son Kyle are in the local hardware store with several neighbors and strangers when the dark comes on. Soon the battle to live and escape will come to a head. John will trek to him home, where he hopes his wife is still alive and well. Monsters of our nightmares are all around, eating and killing everything including a dog.

If you've seen the movie Pitch Black [Blu-ray], this has the same kind of feel. I read The Mist (Previously Published as a Novella in 'Skeleton Crew'), by Stephen King that was similar; it involved monstrous spiders and fog. I've been in a maze completely pitch black (during Halloween) and was terrified; I can't imagine it being filled with people eating beasties.

Very good, scary short book I recommend to all. All characters are easy to relate to and like, even the bad ones. The author did a great job of making the reader feel as though they are living the terror. I am hoping for a sequel, it would be nice to know what happens when the dark lifts, if it ever does.
