'What is it? What does it want? Why is it angry with me?' January 1937 Clouds of war are gathering over a fogbound London. Twenty-eight year old Jack is poor, lonely and desperate to change his life. So when he's offered the chance to be the wireless operator on an Arctic expedition, he jumps at it. Spirits are high as the ship leaves Norway: five men and eight huskies, crossing the Barents Sea by the light of the midnight sun. At last they reach the remote, uninhabited bay where they will camp for the next year. Gruhuken. But the Arctic summer is brief. As night returns to claim the land, Jack feels a creeping unease. One by one, his companions are forced to leave. He faces a stark choice. Stay or go. Soon he will see the last of the sun, as the polar night engulfs the camp in months of darkness. Soon he will reach the point of no return - when the sea will freeze, making escape impossible. And Gruhuken is not uninhabited. Jack is not alone. Something walks there in the dark.… (mehr)

    Die Frau in Schwarz: Roman von Susan Hill (bibliobeck)
    bibliobeck: Both beautifully written and menacing rather than horrific, both about men alone in baren environments and both perfect for reading on a cold night in front of the fire!

    Cold Earth von Sarah Moss (alalba)
  3. 21
    Terror von Dan Simmons (Jannes)
    Jannes: More Arctic horror. Simmons might is a bit more viceral, but the heart of the horror - the cold, darkness and isolation of the arctic north - is the same in both novels.

Really gruesome at the end. Left a horrible vision that lingered rather badly for a few days. I wouldn't say it kept me awake, but while I was awake at night it kept repeating on me. Very well written which its why it kept repeating but I don't want to read too many like that! This is one of a number of fictional accounts based on expeditions to the Arctic (last one 'The Voyage of the Narwal')and I have another in my pile of books. After that I shall read about the voyage of the Fram and get back to real horrors..... ( )

Dark Matter is a slow moving tale, centered around some explorers, isolated in the Arctic.
It came to me highly recommended and I usually love tales of isolation and distress, but for whatever reason this one didn't move me much. ( )

Michelle Paver is an author I've often come across at work. Her children's books seem very popular, and I've always meant to read her. So when I was looking for a winter ghost story and came across one by her I figured that it was the perfect time to start reading.
And it was a really good atmospheric read.
Jack, the diarist telling the story has a chip on his shoulder. His father came back from the war suffering from PTSD, not that they called it that back then, as well as sick and unable to work. So the family slipped down the class structure. Jack is very conscious of class and money, so having to mix with a number of upper-class monied toffs isn't his idea of fun. But the chance to go to the Arctic is not one he is prepared to miss.
But he also feels inadequate around them and feels he has to prove his worth, and so he doesn't admit to his feelings and what he begins to witness when they arrive in Gruhuken.
There's a wonderful build up of tension and atmosphere as the ghostly presence begins to make itself known. It's a simple enough plot, but really well written and developed.
Highly recommended. ( )

Intense creeping dread, fantastic storytelling, phenomenal narrator, and by far and away one of the most atmospheric slow burn haunting stories I have ever read or listened to. The level of dread was so intense, I so wanted to know how it ended, but I was almost afraid to keep listening. ( )

What with fairly large text, big margins, 1.5 spacing, and quite a few photographs, Dark Matter's 288 pages really contain a horror novella rather than a full length novel. There's nothing wrong with that of course, I'm a big fan of www.creepypasta.com, which ably demonstrates how chilling short stories can be. But this particular story would really have benefited from a bit more substance in the middle.

The plot is simple enough: a group of men travel to an isolated bit of the Arctic to camp over winter and take some token scientific readings. The story is told through the diary entries (and near the end, jarringly, through the thoughts) of Jack. Jack thinks that the bay they're staying in is kind of creepy, but dammit, Jim, they're all scientists so he doesn't come out and say to his chums that he thinks it's haunted. For various reasons Jack is ultimately left to fend for himself during the Arctic perma-night. And so begins the terror…

And, abruptly, there ends the terror. I'm no sadist – even against fictional people – but Jack's journey to abject-horror-ville really could have been stretched out a bit more. So abrupt is the final plunge that I wondered if the author had excised a few chapters from the middle, or been urged to publish before really finishing. What's there on the page is well written and genuinely creepy, but the tension could easily have been stretched further without ever being in danger of breaking. ( )

Det är sällan jag blir så rädd att jag inte kan läsa klart en bok. Men det finns gränser: hade jag läst ut ”Evig natt” den kvällen så hade jag inte kunnat sova alls

This is a bad mistake. The one who walks. You have seen it. Ja?
Out of nowhere, for no reason, I was afraid. My skin prickled. My heart thudded in my throat. My body knew before I did that I was not alone. Thirty yards away on the rocks, something moved.
