    One thought on “Silent Voices”

    1. At the heart of Gary McMahon's second outing to The Grove is the stinking underbelly of working class citizens etching out a living in the harsh and unforgiving landscape commonly known as The Concrete Grove. We meet again Simon Ridley, Brendan Cole and Marty Rivers who have never been able to escape an incident that occurred some 20 years ago and in this forced reunion they hope to do the business and rectify that which has gone before. What the author achieves here is creating a picture of the [...]

    2. 4.5 stars Another fantastic installment in the Concrete Grove trilogy.More of the same unsettling, surreal nightmare qualities of the first book, this time with a trio of boyhood friends who reunite after twenty years to face the fears that have plagued them throughout adulthood.Beautifully disorienting with just a smattering of body-horror, this should be on any horror fans to-read list.(And I wasn't at all influenced by the hero of the piece sharing my surname, but maybe I like him a teeny bit [...]

    3. The Concrete Grove, the first book in the Concrete Grove trilogy, delivered and promised so much. It delivered a fantastic piece of urban horror, laced with dark fantasy that led me to describe Gary McMahon as "the outstanding British horror writer of our times". It promised so much as it gave us, what I thought were " tantalising glimpses of a much deeper mythology" and left the way clear for the author to fully dive into his dark mythos in the subsequent books. Now we have Silent Voices, the s [...]

    4. I am actually really hesitant to rate this one. Standalone, I'd probably peg it as a two-point-five (keeping in mind that the only things I rate a five are things that I think everyone should read, regardless of whether or not they would usually touch the genre in question). But it's very clearly the second book in a trilogy, and because it appears to rely so heavily on the first I am not comfortable pegging it with stars.The imagery is beautiful; on the other hand, I find that the character dev [...]

    5. Twenty years ago, three ten-year-old boys - The Three Amigos - went missing in The Needle, in Concrete Grove. When they were found, nobody knew what had happened to them, the boys included, but it tainted their lives and their friendship. Now, Simon is a successful property developer in London, Marty is a hard man and Brendan is a lost soul, the only one with family but ground down by life. Simon is haunted by the past and, spurred on by mysterious letters and emails, he decides to head back to [...]

    6. Silent Voices is the second book in the Concrete Grove trilogy, and centers on three men who--as boys--were involved in an incident where they disappeared for a weekend. THough they were gone for three days, they had the feeling that only an hour of their time was missing. The memory gap, and the controversy surrounding their disappearance stuck with them all their lives. The story begins with Simon, the most successful of the three men. He managed to escape the Grove--a slum surrounding the aba [...]

    7. This is a wonderful dark fantasy novel. It's very much in the tradition of Mythago Woods by Robert Holdstock but with a horror edge. Defintely worth reading!opionator.wordpress/2012/0

    8. A very good creepfest of a horror novel. the 2nd in a trilogy set in a run down british housing estate that seems to be a nexus for wierd otherworldy creatures. McMahon has a real talent for writing believable extremely damaged characters. Good Fun. Looking forward to book 3.

    9. My problem with this book is it's sleep inducing and I really can't see why - it seems to have all the right ingredients, it's well written, it's dark and sad and all together a decent book, just terribly, unbearably boring and it shouldn't be.
