Great range of voices.
This is a collection of mini stories linked with an overall story. It is a unique concept and begins immediately by entering a place that most of us don’t even know exists let alone find the courage to explore. The book begins on a dark note and continues on that theme but it is also surprisingly upbeat. Miller doesn’t dwell on the darkness by insinuating what’s out there and he doesn’t embellish it with regular horror jargon, he simply tells the story in a simple factual way. This allows the reader to be entertained while also being shocked, stunned, and sickened to the perfect degree.
I particularly liked the way Miller builds levels of frustration within his characters and identifying with their problems makes their Suicide Hotline solution all the more horrifying. I recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humour, love of horror, and the ability to enjoy textual gore but if you’re really hard-core, then grab the audio version.
"Not for the Faint of Heart!"
It's Awesome! Right up there
The presentation and how all the different stories came together.
Even though it messed with me, I would have to say the daycare scene.
Mr. Black! He's an intriguing character and I would love to find out just what other thaings make him tick.
5 out of 5 Hearts
Not for the Faint of Heart!
This is not my first Tim Miller story, nor will it be my last. As Mr. Miller points out in the beginning. It's his goal to entertain, repulse and horrify us.
Has he achieved his goal?
Yes, he has horrified and repulsed me on more than one occasion. I keep coming back for more.
My thoughts on Suicide Hotline...
Wow! What a Concept!!
Well written, easy to follow, fast-paced, picturesque, and a wonderfully narrated audiobook. Certain parts of this story messed with me a bit, that is just a side effect of the horror genre.
The format of this book is a bit different than his other ones I have read/listened to. It's like a bunch of short stories combined into one book and I truly enjoyed the difference.
The narrator did an excellent job of portraying the different characters, I had no problems telling them apart. A true art form in itself. Great job Vincent Lane.
I was gifted an e-copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. No renumeration was involved.
