Comments A Night of Blacker Darkness

  • Heather

    What do Jane Austen, *Anne Elliot*, John Keats, and Mary Shelley all have in common? Frederick Withers.A zany tale of an ordinary banker who is thrown into prison for fraud. When his cell mate dies of consumption, or some other random horrible disease, Frederick escapes in the coffin. Once outside (in the graveyard, of course), he runs into a group of vampires who think he is the Great One.No matter how much Frederick denies his vampire-ism, he is constantly followed by the knee-scooting worship [...]

    Perfect Halloween book that is just so much FUN! Vampires, coffins, dead bodies, literary figure references, hilarious rhetoric and great characters. Really enjoyed every page! Big thanks to my SIL for the referral!


  • Julie Bozza

    A silly and amusing tale of fraud, vampires, body-snatching, and other acts of derring-do, set in Bath and London. I read it for the sake of a fictional John Keats, who was actually rather cool (though alas we didn't hear enough from him in the latter parts of the book). Recommended if you want a bit of nonsensical fun (and don't mind some rather poor eBook formatting).

    A Night of Blacker DarknessBeing the memoir of Frederick WithersAs Edited by Cecil G. Bagsworth IIIBy Dan WellsA Review by Eric AllenA Night of Blacker Darkness is, perhaps, the silliest book that I have read outside of Discworld, and it is GLORIOUS. It is a rather short book that Dan Wells wrote in his spare time whilst putting together his forthcoming Partials series, and the two other books that he is publishing this year. It was released only in E-book format, and later as an audiobook, and [...]

    Nun, wenn man jetzt denkt, der Erfolgsautor Dan Wells will sich auch noch ein Stück vom Kuchen nehmen und an dem literarischen Hype der Vampirgeschichte teilhaben, so irrt man sich. Die vorliegende Horror-Komödie "Sarg niemals nie" ist kein weiterer Versuch, die blutsaugenden Gestalten neu zu erfinden, sondern vielmehr eine Ode an den klassischen Schauerroman. Und eine großartige Satire!Wir befinden uns im England des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts. Im Jahre 1817 hat sich der liebenswerte Gauner Fr [...]

    3.5An entertaining and quick read!

    "Hätte ich ein Grab würde ich mich jetzt beleidigt darin umdrehen!"Eigentlich hätte es nur 4 Sterne verdient für das Ende (da wäre noch was gegangen~) aber da ich fast das ganze Buch durchgrinsen und an einigen Stellen wirklich lachen musste hat es sich doch den 5 Stern gesichert.Slapstick-Einlagen kamen nicht zu kurz aber so gut platziert das sie einen wirklich amüsiert haben. Frederick war ein, für mich persönlich, sehr guter Hauptcharakter (den ich mir eigentlich nur mit Facepalm vors [...]

    This was simply a very amusing story about a misunderstanding that leads into a whacky adventure that includes vampires (real and fake ones), a vampire hunter who might be incompetent (or is he?), sudden friendships that will probably hold for life AND the afterlife and corpses. Lots and lots of corpses. Not all of them will stay dead. Mixed in are some pretty famous authors, who all have certain "quirks" and some pretty unique ideas about the undead.


  • Tanja

    Every october I enjoy reading ghost, vampire, ghouls, or mystery books. I wanted to start a little early this year and I have begun my month of macabre with "a night of blacker darkness". After reading this I will never look at vampires or Jane Austen the same. I laughed through most of the story and thought this quite a clever book and for that it is getting 5 stars. Well done Wells.


  • Ryan Martinsen

    Hilarious little romp.


  • Mindy

    Brilliantly funny and spookingly awesome. Dan Wells can do no wrong.


  • Clare

    I really liked this book-its humor was right up my alley. I did think the last third of the book fell off a bit from the start, but still thought it was a very fun read.


  • September

    I wish I was more easily amused. I wish I had really laughed through this book. It's no fault of the author, I just don't get a lot of funny.


  • Sara

    What a silly book. I loved it.


  • Marina

    this book is so so so funny! To be honest, I did not think much about it when I first bought it, the plot sounded interesting and that's it. When I picked it up and started reading it, I immediately realized after the first couple of pages that this book is going to be good. I rarely laughed so much and I had to control myself so much in order not to start laughing in public.The vampires, the play with words, the characters, the references to some of the most famous authors of especially Gothic [...]


  • Joshua Marx

    This book is ridiculous. Wells goes over the top with the satire and mockery. It is too much at times, but it works with the writing style. If you like the classics and more modern popular culture, then I would definitely recommend it.


  • July

    Hilarious. And definitively NOT you're typical vampire novel. Highly recommended.


  • Kutsua

    This book is wonderful and silly and wonderfully silly. I don't know if Mr. Pratchett managed to read this before he died, but if he did, he must have wish he had written it.


  • William Munn

    Funny, entertaining, and deadly.I adore this book. Listened on Audible and the reader does a fantastic job. It's clear that he enjoyed the adventure of Frederick Withers as much as I did. I hadn't even finished before I started a second listen with my wife. If you enjoy a good farce, read immediately.


  • Sarah

    "Sarg niemals nie" ist - angeblich - das neuste Buch von Dan Wells, den ich bisher nur durch "Ich bin kein Serienkiller" kannte. Inhaltlich konnte mich das zwar auch nicht überzeugen, aber zumindest den Erzählstil fand ich damals noch ansprechend. Trotz der äußeren Gestaltung des Buches, das nicht nur im Cover der John-Cleaver-Reihe ähnelt, sondern wie diese ebenfalls den recht auffälligen "Rough Cut" des Buchschnitts aufweist, habe ich den Dan Wells, den ich kannte, in diesem Buch nicht w [...]

    "Do you ever wonder," said John idly, "why we call buildings 'buildings?' Are they in a state of constant construction? We should call them 'builts.'" ---"Not like that," said John. "More tuneless, almost melancholy--like the whisper of a dying candle.""I think it's safe to say that no one in this room knows what you're talking about."A Night of Blacker Darkness, being the memoir of Frederick Whithers, is exactly what the subtitle says it is: a memoir. Who, you may ask, is Frederick Whithers? Mr [...]


  • Wendy Jensen

    I gave it 3 stars as it is a well written fun romp even though for me it was just OK. This genre is just not my cup of tea. That said, for those who would enjoy a mix of mystery, horror, slapstick, and fantasy, "A Night of Blacker Darkness" definitely delivers.Dan Wells succeeded in writing the ghoulish and yet zany "memoir" of Fredrick Withers who is caught up in the misfortune of being seen leaving a casket in which he was placed when he feigned death to make a prison break. The resulting mani [...]

    Frederick Withers has forged some pretty amazing documents to will over an heirless bachelor’s fortune to himself. Unfortunately, Frederick is imprisoned for forging some practice documents and is unable to collect the inheritance from prison. Taking a page from the Count of Monte Cristo, Fredrick fakes his death and is carried out with the corpses. Everything seems to be going fine until he crawls out of his open grave and is mistaken by a group of vampires as their long-awaited “Great One. [...]


  • Helina

    So this is what happens when a horror/psychological horror writer reads Christopher Moore and Douglas Adams and goes "I wanna try." This is a silly, entertaining story where Poor Fredrick Whithers is the only sane man in a world where famous historical poets are romantic lunatics and grave robbers, and ancient cults of vampires are like attention-starved ducklings following what they think is their mama. All he wants to do is con a bank out of 90,000$, and everything is conspiring against him.I [...]

    A Night of Blacker Darkness was recommended to me by a friend at work. I was very skeptic towards this book, because the description sounded rather weird and I was pretty sure I wouldn’t like it. Vampires stopped being my thing some years ago. I was very surprised when I actually enjoyed it from the very beginning. The story of Fredericks journey was amusing, extravagant and made me laugh at parts where I expected to be annoyed. It was a completely new feeling (and genre) for me and now I’m [...]


  • Alice

    I enjoy the books Dan Wells writes. He tends to stick with urban fantasy, though, and fairly serious topics, at that. I wasn't sure what to expect from a comic historical fiction.A Night of Blacker Darkness takes place in January 1817. Frederick Whithers needs to get out of prison to collect a fortune he forged papers to inherit. He fakes his own death, and, in emerging from his coffin, is mistaken for a vampire. Not just any vampire, though; a group of five vampires decides he's their leader, t [...]

    Horror meets Slapstick. Frederick Withers hat einen genialen Plan aus dem Gefängnis zu entfliehen, er lässt sich in einem Sarg nach draußen transportieren. Nur leider hat dieser geniale Plan zur Folge, dass als er aus dem Grab entsteigt alle Welt ihn für einen Vampir hält. Dazu gehört das eine Horde Vampire ihn für den Erhabenen hält, ein verrückter Vampirjäger in töten will und Leichen seinen Weg zu pflastern beginnen. Außerdem scheitert der Betrug, wegen dem er im Gefängnis geland [...]

    A short but hilarious and entertaining novella.Frederick is having one of those days. While trying to pull off an inheritance con-job he's arrested for a different fraud and must fake faking his own death to escape. After being abandoned by the undertaker he manages to escape from his coffin only to be spotted by the local vampires who are intent on following him thinking he's the great one.Still Frederick finds new accomplishes but one is a morbid poet who's constantly rhyming, which personally [...]

    4.5 stars It has been a long time since I have read a book as delightful as A Night of Blacker Darkness. I was laughing out loud from start to finish, I am sure when I was reading it in public people thought I was crazy, but I didn't care and I certainly didn't want to put it down! In fact it took me longer to read then I wanted because I knew I would want to read the second half in one sitting and couldn't (but I don't have that kind of will power) so I forced myself to wait until I had an time [...]


  • Charlie Holmberg

    Outside of a frequent mortuary setting, this book is very different from Wells's I Am NOT a Serial Killer series. It's much more humorous . . . a sort of comedy-horror-fantasy-historical mish-mash that takes rather absurd and entertaining turns in its plot. I admit that, at first, I was leery about the book. The prose read differently than I had expected, and I don't generally pick up comic-fantasy-fiction in my leisure time. But once my brain adjusted to the quick pace of the story, I rather li [...]
