Darkside Book Review

Darkside Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 24, 2007
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Kidzworld reviews Darkside, a spooky novel for kids and teens by Tom Becker.

Author: Tom Becker

Prepare yourself for the spookiest holiday of the year by reading a scary story by Tom Becker. Check out our review of his first book, Darkside to find out if it's as creepy as it sounds!

Dark Secrets

The night Jonathan Starling's dad is admitted to an asylum, he almost gets kidnapped by three people who look like underakers. For a sane second, Jonathan's dad tells him the only person who can help him out of this freaky mess is a man named Carnegie, who lives in Darkside (no, not where Anakin Skywalker turned to become Darth Vadar). Darkside is an underground world ruled by Jack the Ripper's children!

From Lightside to Darkside

Jonathan quickly makes his way to Darkside, which is spookier than any dark alley he's come across in London. It's filled with people who look more dead than alive - he can actually smell death around every corner - and he even comes face-to-pale face with the ultimate blood-sucking villain! Fortunately for Jonathan, he also meets Carnegie and Raquella, who's pretty sweet for a Darksider - but do they have what it takes to beat down the bad guys who are after Jonathan, and bring him back to Lightside, or the real world as we know it? You'll have to read the book to find out!


The Bottom Line

Darkside is the perfect book to get you in the spirit of Halloween. From spooky villains to spine-tingling suspense on every page, you won't have the guts to put it down! The book even has a glow-in-the-dark cover that you can cut out and put on display on Halloween night!


Darkside Rating: 5

    I wish I didn't struggle with myself, physically. It led to awful things that I regret doing in the past.

    I agree... I don't care about being overly skinny like the models... I seen terrible pictures where young actors turned into skeletons (no puns) because they think they  are still not skinny...

    This is for everyone who doesn't care about needing to eat more or less. I care about my body. I'm proud of it. And I don't listen to others when they say, "Do you eat enough?" I'm a light weight. I know. And I'm proud!!!
