Dark Father by James Cooper


Dark Father is an interesting take on a horror novel by James Cooper. It's three interlocking story lines and their consequences throughout the years and the psychological effect those actions can have on you. 

It was an interesting premise, however I just wasn't a huge fan of it. The writing was rather tedious and a few of the characters felt very one dimensional to me. My favourite character was Mack, with his rare mental disease. I enjoyed trying to figure out how the story lines all connected however I just found the writing dry and the characters not engrossing enough. 

I would definitely not recommend it.
