Summary

Matt Shaw Presents Amnesia, a new novel from author Matt Hickman.

Six strangers: three men, three women, awake in a sterile medical facility. Apart from two of the group, their minds totally blank as to how they arrived there, or the purpose of their detainment. Locks have been secured on each of the doors and iron bars on the window - no way to escape. Surveillance cameras on the walls indicate that they are being studied.

When they stumble across some official paperwork by a company, The Hampton Group, headed up by a mysterious doctor, it begins to transpire that the group were volunteers in a medical trial. The trial for a revolutionary new drug that can abate the development of cancer cells. As time goes by, a few of the subjects begin to show some signs of erratic behavior. Is it a side effect of the medical trial, or something much more sinister?

Compelling storyline, graphic intense horror.

The narrator is wonderful though took a little while to warm to his voice. The writing is quite addictive. I love the slow build up of the story. But I had to stop around 3/4s the way through. Once the power storm hit and things went crazy this creepy and mysterious story descended into something very sinister. If you love old school horror with lashings of gratuitous violence you wont be disappointed.

Be careful for what you sign up for

Amnesia is a horrific book that is scary and very descriptive. The book has to do with betrayal, lies, murder and experimentation. The twist and turns kept me on this rollercoaster ride of this twisted horror tale. I received this audio book at my request and I am leaving an honest review of my own volition.

Gastly violence

What disappointed you about Amnesia?

The violence was just horrible and sick! There should be a warning in the synopsis about how much sick violence was involved. I fast forwarded through most of the last half of the booki.

What was most disappointing about Matt Hickman’s story?

The premise was interesting, however, I could not enjoy it because I don't like violence and I had a hard time understanding the narrator.

What didn’t you like about Steve White’s performance?

His accent (Australian?) was so pronounced that I had a difficult time understanding him, especially when he read some of the character's voices in such a heavy brogue.

Any additional comments?

I wish I had not listened to this book. The disgusting scenes stuck in my head for several days. Ugh!!!
