Joe Schreiber's atmospheric, claustrophobic, and achluophobic novel "Eat The Dark" is the equivalent of a brief, fun popcorn horror movie. It works well to read in total darkness and total silence, save for a booklight, and maybe even in one sitting. Despite having read EAT THE DARK previously, I still couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

Joe Schreiber is the author of adult novels DEATH TROOPERS, CHASING THE DEAD and EAT THE DARK. The era of the Old Republic is a dark and dangerous time, as Jedi Knights valiantly battle the Sith Lords and their ruthless armies. This is his first young adult novel. But the Sith have disturbing plans-and none more so than the fulfillment of Darth Scabrous's fanatical dream, which is about to become nightmarish reality. Unlike those other Jedi sidelined to the Agricultural Corps-young Jedi whose abilities have not proved up to snuff-Hestizo Trace possesses one extraordinary Force talent: a gift with plants.

A quick read, _Eat The Dark_ is mostly satisfying. It would have been better without the supernatural aspect. I would have enjoyed it more if it had simply stuck to what it initially offered itself as: a scary-serial-killer-stalking-innocents-in-the-dark tale. Instead, nearing the end, Schreiber went off on a mostly-unexplained tangent wherein the murdering psychopath turns out to be not human. Three and a half stars for the 80 percent of the story that was entertaining, before it went off the rails.

To put it simply: this book was fantastic. It was so fantastic, I managed to get through it in about three days. It was tense, weird, horrific and rewarded you for putting in the time. It honestly reminded me of something H.P. Lovecraft would write, if he were a modern writer. I'd recommend anyone who is a fan of horror buy this book.

It definitely made me an even bigger Joe Schreiber fan.

Non stop thrill ride from beginning to end. Highly recommended

Eat the Dark quickly moves you through a night of murder and fear with disturbing imagery (I'll never look at Thomas the Tank Engine the same) that stays with you long after you've closed the book.
It's manageable length is perfect for someone who loves a great story, but doesn't have as much time to read as they'd like.
This is a story that does not disappoint. An A+ read!

i have read a lot of horror .. but read a lot of other stuff too .. i think the groping around in the dark in that hospital was something that made the book one that may appeal to 'scared of the dark' type of people.. and i am creeped out by things like that .. i enjoyed the book !!

I really enjoyed Chasing the Dead, but was disappointed in this slasher film homage. However it may appeal to fans of the slasher sub-genre.
I'm rather mixed over this book. I liked it, but not enough to where I can entirely rationalize giving it four stars.

Part of what both helped and hindered the book was the narration by Renee Raudman. I had remembered hearing a review of the audiobook that said that the almost entirely male cast didn't do her many favors and they're correct. Raudman does a decent enough job with the male voices to where you won't really mind this, but I can't help but wonder what it would've been like if they'd managed to get someone like Michael Kramer to voice it. Her voicing of the young Eli was slightly irritating at times. Where she really shines is towards the end when the action starts heating up and the moments get more tense. That's where her narrating is spot on and I couldn't help but think "OK, now I see where she's perfect for this".

The story itself is decent. It's a good setting and a cool idea for a book. You do have to put a lot of suspension of disbelief on the line at times, but most of the problems I had with the book were eventually explained away in one way or another. The ones that weren't I didn't have that big of an issue with, such as why the MRI department staff were the only ones in the hospital. It's pulp horror, so some concessions have to be made. My only big problem with the book was that I wished that the twist at the ending had been explored just slightly more. I won't elaborate, as it'd be semi-spoilerish but I did want to know just a little more here.

It's just that while I enjoyed this and see where it would make for a great horror movie, I just wasn't overwhelmed by this. When the book is good, it's good. When the book isn't, it's just sort of meh. It's neither a stellar example of the genre, nor a subpar one, if that makes any sense. It's better than much of the other fare out there and definitely entertaining enough to where I'll pick up Schreiber's other stuff, but I just didn't get into this as much as I wanted. I think it's partially because this so neatly straddles two different horror genres that I kind of didn't know how to feel about this at the end.

Horror fans will probably want to add this to their TBR pile for Halloween. It's one that I definitely recommend picking up, but it's not something that you'd need to stampede out and get.
