Suffer ye not!
Suffer - E.E. Borton

This is certainly not a work of any great literary prowess and I suspect it does not profess to be. Kate’s life is in chaos when she is brutally attacked in her home by a psychotic maniac and her son Caleb is horribly mutilated and murdered. As if this is not enough her husband Paul commits suicide as he cannot stand the pain or live without them......so just your normal every day occurrence in downtown US :)

 

But our Kate is a real “gutsy” lady and not only does she survive but with her trusty friends and, newly inherited immense wealth, sets up home in sunny Florida. From there she spends the rest of the book plotting to seek out and find the individual who destroyed her life and family.

 

This is an ok read, fast and fun which unfortunately begins to get a little “wordy” and lose direction in the middle third. The violence when it happens is quite graphic and bloody and the reader soon realizes he is heading for a gore feast at the invitation of Kate in her beautiful Florida home. Will Kate survive? Will the murderer be caught? Will the reader manage to get to the end without boredom setting in?...and most importantly will the sun keep shining in Florida? And what’s on telly tonight?

 

If you have a few hours to pass and require a little mindless entertainment then Suffer may just be the book for you. As the title suggests I began to feel the effects of suffering the longer I read and was very pleased when Kate reached the end of her mission........

Book Review ~ Suffer by E.E. Borton
Suffer by E.E. Borton (9-Dec-2014) Paperback - E.E. Borton
 
Suffer
by E.E. Borton
 
 
Kate Freeman opened the front door of her vacation villa to a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A few moments later, fifty thousand paralyzing volts shot through her body. Her world went dark; and when she awoke, her family was torn apart forever.
 
After months of agonizing physical therapy to heal the vicious wounds to her body, the Kate who emerged was no longer the loving mother, sister, and friend from before. The Kate who survived was something much different. Something much darker.
 

 

Without hesitation or remorse, she will hunt down the men who destroyed her life, even if it means sacrificing her last shreds of humanity. She will make them suffer.

What if someone came into your home, brutally attacked you, raped you in front of your child and then made you watch as you that person killed your child? This is Kate’s reality as her once perfect life comes shattering down.  The killer thinking that Kate is dead, underestimated her determination and drive to find him and make him suffer for his wrong doings.  Suffer brings the old adage ‘an eye for an eye’ to a whole new disturbing level and I liked it a lot.
 
Suffer is one of those books that after reading the last sentence, I was left wondering what the hell did I just read?  This story is very dark and very twisted and although I wanted to stop reading, I just couldn't put this book down.  It kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the very disturbing end.  Suffer is not for the faint of heart as the author’s very vivid descriptions of the brutally violent and utterly gruesome acts left me  emotionally and physically ill.  Despite the horrific, gruesome and gory scenes, this is a well-crafted thrilling masterpiece I wanted to continue so that I could find out how it would end.
 
With a highly suspenseful, gripping plot and well-developed characters, Suffer kept me captivated and intrigued throughout. If you are looking to reading something dark and twisted, then I highly recommend reading this fascinating and frightening book.  Just be warned that you will want to drop everything and keep turning the pages because you will not want to put this one down even for a second.  This is the first book I have read from this author, but it will definitely not be my last.

Suffer
Suffer - E.E. Borton

Kate and her young son Caleb are attacked in their home. Against all odds Kate survives the attack but after months of revalidation she's not the same person any more. Driven only by her will to hunt the men down who did this to her family, she embarks (together with quite a large number of people) on a search to bring them to justice.

 

I read this book in a single train trip, so it definitely was a fast read. The premise is quite interesting, but I didn't like the execution (of this premise, not the actual execution) as much as I did in other books I read with similar themes like for example The Beast by Roslund & Hellström.

 

It's quite graphic when describing the murder of a child, this might put readers off, so just a quick warning. My biggest problem however was everyone's willingness to help Kate in her plan. I understand why Kate would be hellbound on getting revenge and that the others want to help her cope with everything, but they don't even seem to worry about the legal/moral consequences of what they're planning. One of them even is with the FBI and should definitely know better. What I expected were people conflicted about helping, but everyone accepts it really fast.

 

A quick read, but not a very memorable one.

 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

TBR Thursday #16
Rebellion - Stephanie Diaz
Suffer - E.E. Borton
A Density of Souls - Christopher Rice
From the Cradle - Louise Voss, Mark Edwards
The Beginning - Jonas Winner
Until the Debt Is Paid - Alexander Hartung,Steve Anderson
A Christmas Horror Story - Sebastian Gregory

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...

 

It would almost seem it's already Christmas with all these new books I got from Netgalley last week. They all look very promising so I'm really looking forward to reading them. Only problem is of course, that this isn't a very effective way to lower the TBR as was my plan. Not too much chance that that will happen next week either, as a big book sale comes to my home town this weekend, and I'll probably go and take a look there...

 

TBR pile currently stands at 215. (+9)

(Netgalley ARCs at 69 (+5))

Suffer
Suffer - E.E. Borton Be careful if you are going to mess with someones family. What's that saying?..."Revenge is a dish best served cold." There was some serious revenge in this one, but the main character really went through hell! Very dark!
