    Not Up To Golden's Usual Standard

    I’ve been reading Christopher Golden novels for more than twenty years starting with a couple of Buffy the Vampire novels, moving on to his Body of Evidence and Prowlers series, and quite a few others. I like the author and generally think he’s worth giving a try. Unfortunately, Ararat was not one of his better books. After an earthquake causes an avalanche high up on Ararat in Turkey, a cave is opened up for the first time in millennia and inside is an object that might just be Noah’s ark. Everyone recognizes that it is too high up in the mountain to have ever been deposited there by a flood, but it does indeed appear to have been a vessel made for transport on the water some 5,000 years ago. It also contains a coffin with a horned humanoid in it. As the scientists and government representatives try to keep the archaeological exploration proceeding, many of the people fear they have discovered a demon. Then people start to disappear and die. All of the build up works pretty well and I was greatly enjoying the novel, but when the couple of handfuls of survivors—convinced that a demon is hunting and possessing them—decide to run for it I started to lose my patience with the book. They all worry about bringing the demon back to civilization and they all run for it anyway to a totally predictable ending. As if this wasn’t disappointing enough, there is never any real attempt to explain how the ark got up on the mountain in that cave and that was a great disappointment. In fact, I really didn’t think there was much of an effort to explain any of the “horror” elements. It just didn’t seem to me that this was up to Golden’s usual standards.

    Exorcist on a mountain

    This was really good. It built up the suspense early on but fell a little short in its conclusion. If you like novels about possession this book is for you.
