I was saving all my Curran reads for some unknown day in the future when I was snowed in and unable to leave the house.
However, a friend recommended I read it pronto.
I did and found it lacking.
The characters were ineffectual when it came down to me, the reader, caring about their outcomes. Where were Tim’s normally hated/loved characters you wished would die/live?
That alone pulled this read down for me. It was also lacking in the atmospheric department that I normally brag about. Don’t get me wrong, there were moments where I could imagine the darkness, the water surrounded me and creeping up my pant-legs. The noises and feelings of being watched. I just felt like there wasn’t enough to make me love it.
The ending was not my favorite. Very dismal for my tastes.
The idea was a good one, the implementation of said idea could have been better.

      I sorry 🙁
      NOT! LOL

      I didn’t say I hated it. I still feel Tim has superstar potential. I’m just waiting on him to reach it. Dead Sea was by far the most memorable and downright atmospheric read by Tim. He’s an awesome writer.
