Pitch Dark - Steven Sidor First off, thank you GoodReads' First Reads/Giveaways for the opportunity to read this book! I received this book for free from the publisher through the GoodReads' First Reads giveaway. This doesn't change or influence my opinion of the novel in anyway. :)Pitch Dark was a thrilling read. The descriptions were vivid and the entire story was entertaining, fast-paced and suspenseful. I read it fast, in only a few sittings, wondering what was around the corner after each chapter finished. My only quirks with the novel at times were that I couldn't quite connect with any of the characters. And the plot, in the beginning, was confusing, until I reached about the halfway point and finally learned more about The Pitch and The Stone- and exactly what was going on. In fact, to be honest, when I finished, I still felt some questions unanswered. Maybe it was a bit too fast-paced at times. I felt it lacked information for the reader sometimes due to this.I still give it a solid 3.5 star rating because while I had some "quirks" and nitpicks here and there, once I got into the story, I really enjoyed the thrilling suspense it dished out. http://the-bookaholic.blogspot.com
