Author Nick Lake provides an intertwined story based on two true events. The 2010 devastating earthquake in Haiti is dramatically fictionalized and the overthrowing of slavery hundreds of years earlier in Haiti is attempted to be told in as true a fashion as possible. I mean I liked that the book arrived on time, and that the product appeared in real life as it was advertised online. But that's a personal preference.

For the people of Site Solèy. At the beginning of the troubles in Haiti, I felt that I was destined to great things. There are no names in the darkness cos there is no one else, only me, and I already know who I am (I am the voice in the dark, calling out for your help), and I have no questions for myself and no need to call upon myself for anything, except to remember. In darkness, I count my blessings like Manman taught me. One: I am alive. Two: there is no two.

It’s a vivid depiction of violence and devastation that plays with alternate (and always depressing) realities, a likely eye-opener for many teenage readers.

Raw, harrowing, and peopled with vibrant characters, In Darkness is an extraordinary book about the cruelties of man and nature, and the valiant, ongoing struggle for a country's very survival. Shorty" is a Haitian boy trapped in the ruins of a hospital when the earth explodes around him. Surrounded by lifeless bodies and growing desperately weak from lack of food and water, death seems imminent.
Nick Lake's In Darkness is just the kind of book that might attract this brand of unfair criticism. It has a complex structure, deals with sometimes brutally unsympathetic characters, and tells the story, both modern and historical, of Haiti, a country that doesn't figure high on most school curricula. Toussaint is a reluctant leader, but his thoughtfulness and his desire for the least bloody solution make him just the kind of man who might succeed. And at night, Toussaint begins to dream of a young man, trapped in the rubble of a future Haiti. In Darkness is both violent and subtle, unexpectedly reminding me of The Wire.
BY NICK LAKE (Bloomsbury £1. 9). By John Harding for MailOnline Updated: 09:15 EST, 13 January 2012. The book starts slowly, but as the two narrative threads become more and more intertwined, with the author switching effortlessly from one to the other, it gathers pace, becoming finally unputdownable, with both strands racing towards violent and shocking endings. In Darkness is both a searing indictment of man’s inhumanity to man and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
