    1. Dark, twisted and creepy, Shadows will take you out of your comfort zone and keep you glued to the pages of the book, regardless of whether or not you want to.After losing her father to suicide, Sarah finds herself on the brink of losing her sanity Haunted by the ghosts of her family s pasts, she finds herself in a new kind of hell when she starts experiencing a series of graphic, violent and bloody hallucinations As if that wasn t bad enough, the hallucinations also bring about a new form of to [...]


    2. I m one of those horror fans who has watched quite a number of horror movies but hasn t read that many horror novels, so Shadows was some what of a treat for me And I wasn t disappointed It was a thrill ride a dark twisted thrill ride that seemed to have no brakes It exposes the darkest of human nature, but it does it in such a way that makes it believable that people would actually think these things And I m sure many people have and worse Sarah is having a rough time, her father just committed [...]


    3. Every once in a while, a book comes along that makes its presence felt by grabbing your throat and not letting go, even after you re finished reading it Shadows is one of those books The book is structured in a way that you are never bored The parallel story lines and pace mean you re always keen to see what s going on over the page, even if it s just to make sure you get it finished before dark and the content is notably broad, covering everything from abuse to depression.One of the most notabl [...]


    4. My original Shadows audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.Sarah has a terrible boyfriend He cheats on her, treats her like dirt, and brings her to his family dinners, where she is insulted and humiliated That s the positive part Sarah s father committed suicide and now she is suffering from the same delusions and self doubt that he succumbed to When the voice in her head leads her to nearly stab her boyfriend to death, she must confront her daemon It s time to decid [...]


    5. Sarah has recently lost her father His sudden suicide seems so abrupt and out of character that it has caused her to start questioning her own grip on reality Was he suffering from deteriorating mental health or was there something far sinister going on There is something heartbreakingly sad, but also utterly fascinating about watching a character full apart at such a basic level When Jack enters her life Sarah quickly begins to lose all sense of self, and her actions become increasingly errati [...]


    6. Outstanding.Joan s novels are not for the faint of heart, these novels are dark and twisted Once they get into your head, they stay there If that s not for you, then avoid it.But for the others like me, this novel lived up to everything I ve read by this author and then some Sarah, our main character, is mild and meek, and dealing with a crappy boyfriend and the sudden death of her father when things start to get even worse She s seeing things Terrible visions and hallucinations No one believes [...]


    7. What lurks in the shadows What is that annoying voice at the back of your head Have you thought about offing yourself Do you believe in the supernatural Would you survive a complete mental breakdown After the loss of her father, Sarah is faced with a living nightmare A nightmare she named Jack Their time together can only one outcome, or so we are lead to believe Sarah is a push over, yet she is a tough cookie, a survivor.Kevin, the boyfriend, has a few skeletons in his closet With a perverted s [...]

    9. Shadows by South African author Joan de la Haye lurked in my to be read pile for many months after I bought it horror stories scare me I m a die hard believer in happy endings, and gruesomeness haunts me for days I started reading this story when I was home alone one night not a good idea for sensitive readers After some thrilling chills and a sleep plagued by nightmares, I decided that, if I was brave enough to want to finish it, this novel must be read during the day only I m glad I did read i [...]

    11. I ve read a few stories by this author and was surprised to find this one lurking at the bottom of my reading pile At the start of this book I was asking myself whether the demon was real or in the heads of the victims By the end of the story I wondering if the victims were real or there purely as a punishment for the demon Looking back after a couple of days I m not sure I could definitively tell what if anything was supposed to be real I might be having an existential crisis of sorts right now [...]


    12. I write horror and some very dark thrillers So I invariably wake up in the middle of the night, because I ve figured out yet another twisted way to mess with my already screwed up characters.I m interested in some weird stuff That s probably also one of the reasons I write horror.I m deep, dark and seriously twisted That was written as author Joan De La Haye status O la la Imagine if she says that, how creepy can be her readings I must admit I have watched a quiet number of horror movies but rea [...]


    13. Wow this book took my mind, twisted it and shut it in a box screaming I loved this book Starting off with an immediate plunge into insanity, this fast paced thriller sinks it s claws into your mind and just will not let go Just when you think you re leveling out, the author throws another insane twist at you over and over again, keeping you on your toes as delicious horror runs up your back in cleats I found myself quite unable to put this fascinatingly lunatic book down and stayed up late into [...]


    14. As I read the first chapters I felt this was of a book for young adults but when I got about halfway into the book the writing changed like the author had maybe set this aside and came back to it later on and the writing felt adult like, along the lines of say Stephen King s horror Because of that I was unable to put it down once I got that far into it Suicide and or rape and the mess it leaves behind with the survivors victimsor the horror and insanity of it all You be the judge and read thi [...]


    15. For a thriller which is not really the kind of book I read this was really good kept my attention hat would i do if i thought i was loosing my mind why i think i would call my tormentor Jack sound like a good name for a torment deamon.


    16. What did I just read This book is so messed up in a good way I m not one for horror but I took a chance because someone in my online book club suggested it I m glad I took the leap It s pretty twisted.


    17. Amazing Strange, unique and intense While the story see me fast it kept me on my toes questioning every little thing right alongside Sarah Loved the book.


    18. Joan De La Haye s Shadows is a well crafted exploration of a group of damaged characters in South Africa who are involved in a very complicated web of sex, love and murder The intertwining stories of the characters, as well as the lurking demon s place in the devolution of the main character s psyche, made Shadows a fine page turner.On the other hand, the prominent inclusion of an incestual storyline was a bit much for me to stomach While it did help to make the ending be a bit strong, I feel s [...]


    19. Is it horror or just horrible It s a debate I struggled with after being repulsed by some of the extreme sexual depravity in Shadows, and having problems with the writing and characterisation.Read the full review on my blog Violin in a Void.


    20. pretty messed up book about boys fucking their sisters, with some monsters thrown in to make it horror scariest part is that the author likes to fantasize about crap like this.
