The Drowning Pool by Syd Moore

Drowning Pool

THE DROWNING POOL

By Syd Moore

I’ve just finished reading The Drowning Pool and want to post the review while it is still fresh in my mind.

I don’t want to give away the story itself in this review, instead I want to focus more on my opinions of the book. This is, essentially, a ghost story. Not my usual genre but a book that I really enjoyed nonetheless. In fact I would say that after reading it I think I’d be more inclined to pick up a ‘ghost story’ in the future.

I was initially drawn to it as it is based in Leigh on Sea in Essex which is quite near to where I used to live so I thought I would enjoy some of the local references and folk-lore; which I did.

I liked the way that relationships were built within the story, they were believable and engaging – I found myself caring about the central characters.

I liked the way that the suspense was built too. There was one morning in particular when I was reading this book that I scared myself witless thinking I could hear noises downstairs! Yes I said morning, it was broad daylight!

Spooky and engaging – gets a thumbs up from me.
