Dead Sea - Tim Curran 4.5* rounded up to 5.

This was another hit from Tim Curran!

A ship and her crew encounters a dense, endless fog. From there it's all downhill for them.

There is no way for me to impart to you the descriptive skills of Mr. Curran. They are simply outstanding. He made me see creatures that I could never have dreamed up in a million years. After reading this book for a while, it took me a moment to adjust myself to real life when I looked up. He made me feel as I were in the fog myself.

The atmosphere and tension in this story are both excellent. It has been a long time since I've soaked in a truly creepy read like this. I wholeheartedly enjoyed it!

The only thing that bothered me (resulting in the subtraction of half a star), was a few repetitious chapters around the 25% mark. I felt like the point had been made about where each character was and what they were facing and I wanted to get on with the story.

Other than that this book was pretty awesome. Imaginative, descriptive, atmospheric, creepy and crawly. This story had it all. Highly recommended!

*A note regarding the Kindle edition of this book. On Goodreads the description says it has 300 some odd pages, but the Kindle version was over 500 pages. It's a relatively long book.*
