January 1937. Clouds of war are gathering over a fogbound London. Twenty-eight year old Jack is poor, lonely and desperate to change his life. So when he's offered the chance to join an Arctic expedition, he jumps at it. Spirits are high as the ship leaves Norway: five men and eight huskies, crossing the Barents Sea by the light of the midnight sun. At last they reach the remote, uninhabited bay where they will camp for the next year. Gruhuken. But the Arctic summer is brief. As night returns to claim the land, Jack feels a creeping unease. One by one, his companions are forced to leave. He faces a stark choice. Stay or go. Soon he will see the last of the sun, as the polar night engulfs the camp in months of darkness. Soon he will reach the point of no return - when the sea will freeze, making escape impossible. And Gruhuken is not uninhabited. Jack is not alone. Something walks there in the dark...

  1. 70
    The Woman in Black de Susan Hill (bibliobeck)
    bibliobeck: Both beautifully written and menacing rather than horrific, both about men alone in baren environments and both perfect for reading on a cold night in front of the fire!
  2. 60
    Cold Earth de Sarah Moss (alalba)
  3. 21
    The Terror de Dan Simmons (Jannes)
    Jannes: More Arctic horror. Simmons might is a bit more viceral, but the heart of the horror - the cold, darkness and isolation of the arctic north - is the same in both novels.

Dark Matter was an unexpected pleasure. I loved the setting to bits. Paver's description of the Arctic landscape was great. The main character's slow descent into constant darkness and madness was gripping. The secondary characters were slowly teased out and well written. She also writes a pretty good dog. :)

The only quibble I have with the book is the ending. It was very deus ex machina. At the moment of certain death, his rescue appears on the horizon. ( )

A good short ghost story. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable and gripping ghost story. The characters are well drawn, the Arctic location wonderfully described and the chills accompanied by just the right amount of sorrow. Excellent. ( )

Welp good thing I never planned to go to the Arctic. ( )

I really enjoyed this book overall. The writing was very good while still being accessible and it was an extremely approachable length. However, the ending felt a little rushed and I feel like the final payoff fell a little lackluster emotionally. I did get scared during most of the first half or two-thirds of the book, but the closer it came to the climax, I became distracted with my fear for the dog and less preoccupied with my fear for the main character. Overall, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes ghost stories or arctic exploration. ( )

Det är sällan jag blir så rädd att jag inte kan läsa klart en bok. Men det finns gränser: hade jag läst ut ”Evig natt” den kvällen så hade jag inte kunnat sova alls

This is a bad mistake. The one who walks. You have seen it. Ja?
Out of nowhere, for no reason, I was afraid. My skin prickled. My heart thudded in my throat. My body knew before I did that I was not alone. Thirty yards away on the rocks, something moved.
