August’s Book Club Pick

A novel that explores the darker side of human nature


Dark Water is an atmospheric, challenging tale of madness and depravity that will have you questioning who is truly sane - those within the walls of the asylum or those without. Follow Hiram Carver as the he traverses the early days of psychology in 19th century Boston. We questioned if he was as successful in his field as he believed himself to be.


We had a great time discussing this novel, as it was unlike anything we had read before. As readers we felt this was a tale of the power of denial told from the point of view of a voyeur. Is Carver a reliable narrator or is this history tainted by his difficulty to maintain emotionally healthy relationships?


Due to it’s setting the dark atmosphere lends itself well to an autumnal read that touches on the Gothic in places.
