About this deal

There were bits of horror here and there but they just didn’t do it for me and weren’t enough in the grand scheme of things. I can see how some of the deep water diving details could be a bit much for a reader, but I actually liked it.

Many people might find the subject matters of the book as well as those detailed in my review overwhelming.

No Sharky, the land and sky keep changing size between shots leading it to looking incredibly, head-slappingly fake. But sure, that tube of lipstick is placed in such a way to make a diver think someone abandoned their room in the middle of getting ready for a night out. From Below follows two timelines: Present day where Cove and her team are preparing to dive down to the ship wreak of the Arcadia where they will film footage for a documentary, and the second is 1928 in the days leading up to that ship wreak. I've read a couple of books about haunted houses by Darcy Coates, this one features a team exploring a shipwreck and is a bit different. I needed something to explain this story, because everything the divers do is just stupid as hell and utterly inexplicable.

The ending I felt was okay but there needed to be more explanation as to what happened with the SS Arcadia and you know, give readers a satisfying ending that checks all the boxes. They're being chased by the dead in a cargo hold, then in a hallway, then in a stairwell, then in a pool, then in a changing room, then in a hospital room - it's the literal same thing over and over and over for nearly 100 pages. On one hand, I thought the idea was phenomenal--small differences had the potential to make this into something great. Another strength of From Below is the engaging range of characters which are presented in the third person, with the narrative focussing on a couple of them.

Had Coates held steadfast in the general malaise which was being crafted throughout the first part of the story I am certain that this would have been one that I would have been loath to put down. Again, I’ve not seen Shark, the James Woods show where a lawyer regrows an infinite number of teeth).
