5.0 out of 5 stars Dark intelligent horror, a brilliant read., 29 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Hush (Paperback)
For those of you that are not aware of Mr Lebbon and his work, this is a perfect place to start. Together With Gavin Williams, Lebbon has crafted a dark and incredibly atmospheric read, full of unexpected twists and turns, with a hint of Lovecraft thrown in. One of the best books I've read over the last few years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite début., 25 Feb 2012
This review is from: HUSH (Kindle Edition)
Has it really been 12 years since I first read this? This was the book that started a 12 year and counting love affair with the writing of Mr Lebbon, and Williams. This is a wonderfully gripping tale, that will chill you to the bone

4.0 out of 5 stars HUSH by Tim Lebbon & Gavin Williams, 27 Feb 2012

This review is from: HUSH (Kindle Edition)
HUSH begins like any one of many miserablist horror novels around. And then, suddenly, we are pitched into something so much greater, not to say cosmic. The gritty reality of the main character Jacob's failing relationship, and his angers and obsessions is apparently left behind as a story of Lovecraftian proportions and import rapidly unfolds.

We try to follow what is going on through a series of reality distortions and redesignations worthy of Philip K. Dick. When anything is beginning to come clear, then Lebbon and Williams undermine it and change everything, thus keeping the story moving fast, and our assumptions challenged and any notion of what is to come is up for grabs. HUSH abounds in sharp observations and striking metaphor, and it is nothing if not visceral. And yet... As whatever it is that is going on - some sort of war and invasion from Outside - there is a core of humanity that persists in Jacob and his friends. Whatever they are, and whatever he is.

H.P. Lovecraft's dictum that a weird tale should be about setting and incident, and try to put over the sense of something scratching at the edge of the cosmos is at one and the same time borne out in the story's vaguenesses, and contradicted by its character- and relationship-driven cast. Few stories have been as Lovecraftian as HUSH, while having so few of the obvious trimmings. HUSH is a triumphant phantasmagoria, a headlong journey containing much that will long linger in the mind.
