Carpathia, Paperback

Carpathia Paperback

Part of the Angry Robot series

2 out of 5 (1 rating)


Hell comes to the high seas as James Cameron's TITANIC crashes full-force into the iceberg that is Bram Stoker's DRACULA.

Forbeck sinks his fangs into one helluva horror story, robbing from real history to set up an epic showdown between man and vampire (and between vampire and vampire) on the RMS Carpathia File Under: Fantasy ["Bump In The Night" | "Unthinkable" | "Rescue Remedy" | "1912 Overture"].

It's gripping, exciting, and imaginative. It could make a great film, but it's a great book anyway so read it, whether you like sci-fi or not.

Review by

After abandoning one novel about the <i>Titanic</i> because the stretched out narrative was boring me silly, I mistakenly jumped off the sinking ship and into the North Atlantic. <i>Carpathia</i> has a clever premise - and the name of the ship which picked up the survivors of the <i>Titanic</i> also has vague connotations to Stoker's novel - but the writing is dreadful, on a schoolboy fan fiction/b-movie level of bad grammar and clumsy dialogue. If one more character 'stabbed their finger' instead of simply pointing, I would have had to destroy a library book. Anyway. The cleverest element of this novel is the cover and the tagline - 'The lucky ones went down with the <i>Titanic</i>'. Mr Forbeck should have printed an apology to the survivors of the unsinkable ship, not a dedication in their memory. And I should think Bram Stoker is turning in his grave, too.
