In a town not too dissimilar to yours lived Martha Railer; a solitary individual who lived by herself, yet enjoyed the company of her close friends whom she spent time with on days out. In a realm outside of human perception, something sinister had been put into motion, and inhuman dark figures arrived in her town. They stalked Martha on her day to day activities, but was ...more

Henry Bassett’s THE DARK STALKERS follows single woman, Martha Railer in her day to day routine, almost like a hidden camera crew chronicling a day in the life of the most average person ever. Somewhere in the undertones, a sense of evil begins to darken each day and only Martha seems aware. Readers are left to ask, “Why?”

There is no sense of why Martha has been “chosen,” just that she has. With no dialogue, we are given a perspective from the mysterious entity following her, her sense that some

03-12: 'I: The Dark Stalkers (The Dead Chronicles of Martha Railer #1)' by Henry Bassett is an incredibly unusual story and not simply for the most obvious reason.. that there's absolutely zero dialogue.

Told from a sort of.. drifting point of view between a handful of characters, some human.. and some shadows, it seems to lack any specific direction. Though in this case, that's also not a b
Actual Rating: 2.5 stars

This was an unusual read for me. I had no dialogue throughout the whole book and it took me a while to get used to, but by the time I did the book ended. I found the story itself to be quite simple yet an intriguing one.

As with Arrival I once again found this book to be a little too short and felt it needed to be a little more fleshed out to get the a true understanding as to what it was about. This is definitely one of those book where you need to the read the whole ser

A story that lulls you into a sense of normality, then eerily introduces you to the strange realm of dark stalkers. This is an unusual read with no dialogue, it took a while to get used to but once it hit the strange elements, I wanted to read more. Martha is an ordinary character going through the mundane tasks in life, yet she has some hidden past that keeps me intrigued. This author is taking a risk with the style of writing, or is this the new age style? We'll have to wait and see. ...more

Have you ever seen one of those artsy films? You know, the ones where the story-telling is so different, and the camera shots are so distinct, that you know there will never be another movie like that made, no matter how many other people try to mimic the style? This felt a bit like that.

The story itself is a simple one, but the execution is so unique that the story-line in and of itself really doesn’t matter. I’m used to books that attempt to make the re

Please note: I was gifted a copy of this book in return for an honest review

This was an interesting read. It's experimental in that it has no dialogue, which I thought worked in itself, however did leave some of the other text a bit stilted and repetitive. It had an interesting storyline with some beautiful descriptions at points, yet at the same time there was too much tell over show and I felt that the main character was underdeveloped, meaning that I couldn't empathise with her as much as I w

This book was not my cup of tea.

Things I liked: No typos, descriptive, and the author has a beautiful way of giving inanimate objects actions. Such as 'her flat welcomed her home' and 'Martha managed to overcome her bed’s possessiveness'.

Things I disliked: No dialogue, short chapters, a lack of action/mystery/drama in most chapters.

I'm glad I read it (stepping out of my reading comfort zone), and I hope this writer continues writing because he can write. However, this story needs to start aro
