In This Skin by Simon Clark

I just say what I thought of the book as a whole and this one was a dud. Like that's anything new but hey, saying this book is good gives me a believable excuse The plot is complex, unsettling, covered with a mysterious, dreamy-like atmosphere. Clarks writing style is not weighed down by unneeded 'pretty phrases' - instead he's focus, determined, and powerful. But the old dance hall isn't empty. What might we look like? Even over a decade later, I can close my eyes and see that place.

It wasn't one thing in particular because I know that I've read crazier stories. Nature incessantly fiddles with life.

The Luxor Dance Hall has seen a lot over the past hundred years. But the old dance hall isn't empty.

While this isn't quite as good as his amazing Stranger, In This Skin kept me glued to the couch, lounging around and being lazy all day as I read. Only specialists using the latest imaging equipment can identify these biological oddities.

They discover that people are drawn here against their will and that certain individuals sense there is a pathway on the old dance floor leading to a fabulous world beyond this one. As Robyn and Noel's lives become entangled with those drawn to the haunted Luxor, the building - and what lies inside - will test then to the limits of their endurance and their sanity. Together the three of them face forces and mystical creatures while discovering the truth. Unfortunately the story didn't quite gel with me. Not one player in this story is developed realistically. From Vaudeville, through the big bands and up to the hottest rock acts, the Luxor had them all. What affect would it have on our minds? In his desire to terrify, he forgot the number one golden rule that may be applied to anything in life — less is more.

Rather than a supernatural event could this be yet another natural process? Clark carefully and slowly builds the mystery between the characters, raising the stakes as the terror begins to mount. Some of us can boast more. This one tantalized my mind and kept my blood roaring through my ears - what more could a horror reader ask for? Ellery Hann and a pregnant Robyn Vincent decide to live there when their home life becomes too hard. The Luxor Dance Hall stands outside of Chicago, in a mostly abandoned area. Having numerous themes running at the same time all he managed to deliver was a sever case of indigestion and a headache that no amount of aspirin can cure. It felt off; I was not pulled into the characters or story enough to really become invested in the book. The Luxor Dance Hall has seen a lot over the past hundred years.

Clark carefully and slowly builds the mystery between the characters, raising the stakes as the terror begins to mount. Wiggling around in this foggy soup are characters that stand out, with credible motives for their actions, realistic goals, and I cared about each. On the whole, a good thing. However, before writing In This Skin certain thoughts had been playing on my imagination. Totally unexpected diamond in the rough. As I usually say in my short reviews, the description is When I read books, I usually just go by the title and what the author is known for. Three strangers will soon learn the extent of the dance hall's power.

Sometimes it seems hit and miss to me. Only the path isn't just one way. Together the three of them face forces and mystical creatures while discovering the truth. Ellery Hann and a pregnant Robyn Vincent decide to live there when their home life becomes too hard. The 'creatures' were shivery and unique. In addition, Clark's mythology of the lurking dangers are fascinating and hint to flavors in his other novel, Darker another fine read. And they seek something that they value more than life itself.

Book Review: In This Skin by Simon Clark

Maybe it was because Clark had set the story in America instead of his native England; kind of like he was setting it in Chicago but all he knew about Chicago was what he read online. When the trio comes together to delve more deeply into the secrets of the old dance hall, they find themselves pitted against unearthly forces they can barely comprehend. That hair is the mutant survivor of reptile hide; put a hair under a microscope, you see scales. They were there, just as we are here now. The only real flaw I can see is that sometimes the characters are a bit dumb, but hey, not much is perfect. The only real flaw I can see is that sometimes the characters are a bit dumb, but hey, not much is perfect. We were thrilled to marvel over that bonus fifth finger where a single-jointed thumb should be.

This Clark's most mature book to date - and possibly his best, focusing on what we don't know instead of shoving mindless, predictable graphic violence at the reader although I do l Simon Clark's new book, In This Skin, reads like someones nightmare. Of course, most are invisible to the human eye. From the very first chapter, the story starts off dreamlike, with an unsettling feeling in both the character and reader's mind. He weighs the story down with tedious details, repetitive words and exploits far too many clichés. Now comes my biggest problem, the characters.
