Jack Sparks is a legend on his own timeline. A recovering drug addict, bestselling author and self- aggrandising social media star, he’s on a mission to disprove the existence of the supernatural. Unfortunately, Sparks winds up attracting the hostile attentions of a demonically possessed teenager, as he investigates a mysterious YouTube video featuring a ghostly apparition.
The Last Days Of Jack Sparks attempts the tricky task of transposing the found footage genre to the printed page, and is written in the style of a work- in- progress manuscript by Sparks, with the occasional insert from a third party, added posthumously. The first half is the strongest, with Jason Arnopp creating an atmosphere ripe with menace, but the book flags in the second half. That’s largely the result of Arnopp casting his net too wide. In addition to the demonic possession angle he throws in mental projections and time travel, until the plot trips over its own clutter. And the further Sparks becomes detached from reality, the more implausible it becomes that he’s still working on his manuscript – his refusal to believe the evidence of his own eyes strains credulity to breaking point.
