Terrifying, suffocating, disturbing. And frankly left a disturbing taste in my mouth for several days after (unpleasant enough that I can't really give it 5 stars). Anyone looking to liberate their death (and/or meaninglessness of life) anxiety - look no farther!


Drowning in Words

by Dinah on Jul 31, 2008

The question at the heart of Black Water is not whether Kelly, the young passenger on an ill-fated ride with a senator, will live or die; it's more a matter of how she ended up there in the first place. The text becomes repetitive at parts and certain refrains appear over and over in the book until I almost felt like I was being bogged down along with the young woman. The "contemporary" allusions and references are all now, of course, dated and somewhat lost, but the story still resonates, because there is still something that attracts people to powerful elected officials. And interesting read, and the slim volume is well worth the effort.
