This review is from: Song of Kali (Fantasy Masterworks) (Paperback)
This reads a little like an old fashioned horror, all about the atmosphere rather than the events themselves with lots of exotic native colour.
Robert is a decent character who behaves in a perfectly reasonable and believable manner as things get progressively weirder and worse.
The pace never seems hectic even at the climax but there is always something strange happening. The transitions from apparent normality to complete insanity are handled quite well.
The problem is the same as with Simmons other books, the ending doesn't do justice to the story, it is ok but a bit of a let down, the energy in the book just sort of peters out.
A decent read but spoiled by the weak ending.
