Review



CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR HOLD THE DARK

'very well written and hugely praised in the U.S.' - Harry Ritchie, Daily Mail

'A powerful, memorable novel of lives lived in a place better suited to wolves than humans' - Mail on Sunday

'Hold The Dark keeps you tight in its grip - then rips your throat out.' - Sunday Sport

'[A] brooding, self-consciously mythic tale' - Guardian

'A fierce, extraordinary new novel... spectacularly violent and exquisitely written... If dust jackets were more than paper and ink, this one would bear blood and frost...Giraldi writes with force and precision and grace' - John Wilwol, New York Times

'Shrouded by the dark, kept away from the light...Loren Kleinman details her immersion into William Giraldi's Hold the Dark!' - Loren Kleinman, Huffington Post

'a work of some power and quality likely to entertain those who like the thrill of the frozen north' - Crime Review UK

'a powerful, memorable novel of lives lived in a place better suited to wolves than humans' - Mail on Sunday

'Hold The Dark keeps you tight in its grip - then rips your throat out.' - Sunday Sport

'[A] brooding, self-consciously mythic tale' - Guardian

'Shrouded by the dark, kept away from the light... Loren Kleinman details her immersion into William Giraldi's Hold the Dark!' - Loren Kleinman, Huffington Post

'a work of some power and quality likely to entertain those who like the thrill of the frozen north' - --Crime Review UK



"Written in a spare but lyrical style, Hold the Dark is as much a mythical tale as it is a crime-fiction novel. Giraldi employs the topography of the vast, bleak tundra to telling effect, carving a story from its primal elements as if working on scrimshaw, in the process scraping away the facade of contemporary reality to reveal witchcraft, old gods and ancient evil." --Irish Times

"This is a deep, dark, and brutal novel which is fantastically written. There is blood, gore, and eloquence, there is love, passion, deceit and trickery, there is everything you could need in a truly epic read." --So Many Books, So Little Time
