Janie is a disturbed young woman battling against her troubled mind. Soon it is not just her sanity that is slipping away from her, but also her desire for survival. Richard, a psychiatrist, must first confront the haunting shadows of his own past before he can reach into Janie’s dark mind and rescue her. “The sense of panic returned, clawing at her sanity, pulling her down towards an immense darkness; a suffocating, endless, soul-destroying black void from which there could be no escape.”

Oct 9, 2009When it comes right down to it, we really don't want to know what's going on in the heads of people around us. The fantasy of telepathy would pale against the abject shock one would experience if the thoughts of one's best friend were laid bare. Half the time, we don't even want to know what's going on in our own heads! That's what makes Angela Hooper's story In Dark Minds so creepy. It's essential that the we are exposed to the facets of Janie's mind. As creepy as that becomes, we walk with her. Hooper has created something of a story much like a wound that has scabbed over. Put a bandage on it, it'll heal. So why are we so tempted to pull off the bandage and pick at the scab? Well done.
Sep 29, 2009"Great job" You had my attention from the very start! And since i want to know more, look for me to purchase this soon.
Sep 20, 2009"Powerful Insights" Angela's characters are skilfully revealed through strong description and plausible actions. The subject matter is treated with sensitivity and compelling honesty. It is also accurate. For the insights alone, 'In Dark Minds' is essential reading. Thank you for creating a powerful story which is both confronting and enlightening.
Aug 24, 2009"A well deserved sales rank of 127!" I agree with all of the comments below and i am adding your book to my shopping cart. It is better than most of the books (if not all of them) on the best sellers list at any book store that you are likely to walk into! Beautifully written + four thumbs up (my wife is holding both of her thumbs up along with me) to say the least! Love + Peace. Earl.
Aug 3, 2009"In Dark Minds" This book has a very authentic feel to it, either Angela Hooper has lived through and worked with scary situations and tragic lives such as Janie's, or she has spent a lot of time researching it. I have just bought the book after reading only the first few chapters, I simply have to know what happens next. Gripping story line, with believable characters and an entralling plot, everything a great book should have. I look forward to reading more, are there any more Angela Hooper books on the way?
Jul 29, 2009"seeing with new eyes" With its intriguing start, introduction of characters and setting, and increasing sense of "otherness", the preview tugs at the reader, making you want to find out more. Angela's writing is sometimes spare, sometimes poetic, always engaging and empathetic. In Dark Minds promises to be a thoughtful exposition of the descent into mental illness.
Jul 13, 2009"Excellent insight" In Dark Minds is an eventful journey into a disturbed mind. The brilliantly descriptive writing blends perfectly with the factual information about the disorder the young woman suffers from. Obviously a lot of research was done. It is difficult to write a book of this type that could sustain my interest as I have always found books with emotional content a little hard to get into, but In Dark Minds grabbed me from the first page and I became so attached to the characters that I did not want the book to end. I hope this will not be the last book Angela Hooper writes because that would be a terrible waste of extraordinary talent.
Jul 3, 2009"In Dark Minds is wonderful" In Dark Minds we are led on the path that Janie walks, leaving men like Raymond and Daniel in her wake. In her quest to discover who she is, she may have lost the most important thing. The first chapter had me sitting on my hands, anxious to see what Jamie does next, and if she in fact listens to the voices in her head. A wonderful read!
Jun 29, 2009"Excellent" This Book "In Dark Minds" is wonderfully written. I can see the images in my head when I read this story and that is rare. Thank you Angela, keep writing.
Jun 3, 2009"Chilling Reality" As a registered nurse with over twenty years in the psychiatric speciality, I'd like to comment on the reality of the writing. I've worked with Janie! I know her (or patients very much like her). The depths of her emotions, the believability of her delusions, and, most importantly, the ability to make others (including the reader) believe them is incredible. Dynamite, Angela! Is another one in line?
