The story itself was creative enough, but it did not fill me with the awe and excitement of somethng truly fresh and new. It did not exactly feel like something I'd read a hundred times, but it just didn't feel as 'new' as I would have loved.
It is well-written, though I did feel like the ending was just a bit too tidy. The book and story both felt complete, however, a part of me was left wondering where Mr. Waggoner could take this if he fully let it take form without the constraints of a 'young adult' genre.
All in all, it was enjoyable, well-written, easy to envision, and very simple to follow and understand.
I would suggest this book to any young adult (or adult) reader who enjoys dark fiction and horror without too much gore.
This book should be part of every high school’s junior year English class curriculum. Tim Waggoner does a fantastic job of delivering a YA horror while keeping it both real and respectable (and clean!). Watching Sarah and Ben grow is like following two kids through the first to last day of their junior year in high school. Walls crumble. Facades fade. Real people emerge from the fears and concerns of children. And then we watch them run in terror from pure hell in a trench coat, wielding skull-hilted, screaming knives. As they face their worst, real nightmares head-on. I won’t spoil it, but I can tell you the last five chapters hit deep, taking on issues that have plagued us as teens for years.
For anyone who’s ever been an awkward teenager alone and afraid. Dark Art will show you things you’ve always feared, yet take you to the dream plateaus of your heart. Well worth the read and if you’re a teacher, this is perfect for a character development study. Just saying. Five stars and I now have a padlock on my kitchen knife drawer.
