Genre: Horror - Supernatural
Actual Rating: 4 stars
I can't put into words what a mind f*ck this book is. Especially the last 100 pages of the book. Yikes! You just feel this sense of dread and chills begin to break out on your skin. AH! Quite freaky if you ask me! The Last Days of Jack Sparks is one of those novels where the synopsis doesn't even begin to prepare you for what you will be reading. Sure, the synopsis breaks it down and gives you an idea as to what the book will be about (and does so well, I might add) but when you get into the story and start feeling it yourself... Ugh! Unexplainable. You really would need to read it for yourself to understand what I mean.
Anyway, many say this is a dark humor/horror novel. Personally, I didn't really find it funny, but I can see why some people do. I guess it's the skepticism of the character that makes it laughable, but in reality, it's quite creepy. It details the last 30 days or so of Jack Sparks as he tries to debunk an exorcism and all the supernatural stuff that surrounds it. Unfortunately for Jack, he is much closer to the evil than anyone could have imagined.... And you'll see just how close if you read it.
If you are looking for an original horror novel for fall and Halloween (which is one of the reasons I picked this one up) then this is a great fit for you. Horror fans alike are going to eat this one up! It's wacky, insane, creepy, and intense!
