About book Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011)

Read on KindleA book that would be better read as a hard copyThis book didn't grab me. I was definitely ready for a change of genre and probably shouldn't have even started it when I did.Given the diary style narrative interspersed with the reference catalogue of fairy research, I think I would prefer a hard copy where you could flip through and have a better display of graphics ... the book lends itself to being visual and this was lost on the Kindle.In the end, I skimmed the catalogue sections and just read the diary extracts. The catalogue covered the research into fairy gentry across the world, much of which I was already familiar with, ie folklore. (And besides ... where were all the nice little fairies???).The narrative was about the researchers obsession which all came to no good and a grisly end. And it was only the thin mortar between the bricks. Ho Hum as a read but could have been good as a coffee table style illustrated book. This is a beautiful book, but I don't think I would ever pay the $25 sticker price for it. I was very glad the local Borders had it for half off.It's a quick read with Blackwood's journal entries dispersed among his first (and probably only) book, 'Blackwood's Guide to Dangerous Fairies.' While the guide doesn't advance the plot, it is a fun read and has the illustrations. It's also a fun way to show how Blackwood is traveling the world since his journal entries will resume on the continent the guide left off on.I was a little disappointed this book didn't further explain the 'one life' mantra they said Blackwood was obsessed with in the movie. It otherwise does a great job of filling out the world they use in 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.'
