Kill Creek - 19%
Kill Creek - Scott Thomas,Bernard Setaro Clark

Well, this is interesting so far. It's a new take on the old "manipulative weirdo invites 5 random people to spend the night in a haunted house" story. Except it's 4 people who are all writers of horror fiction and the manipulative weirdo's assistant. The characters are interesting, too. They seem like caricatures - they are each a Type, but somehow the author has written them so they are a little more than that.

Apologies, I have neglected Booklikes of late, but I'm back with a vengeance, in more ways than one. Here's a quote I particularly enjoyed. I'm sure you can all guess who it's alluding to, satirically, of course:

 

"How would you write it? If you decided to write it's story?"

Now it was Sam's turn to smile.

"Oh, I don't know..."

"I do," she said confidently. She pushed off from the railing and began to slowly circle Sam as she talked, forcing him to turn to follow her. "You would start with a character from some seemingly perfect small town, someone not unlike yourself. You know, a little bland."

Sam gave a snort. "Sounds good so far."

"And the house wouldn't be in the country; it would be right in the middle of town so you could overpopulate the book with too many characters and Midwestern details. No offence."

(Audiobook) Kill Creek
Kill Creek - Scott Thomas,Bernard Setaro Clark

I will let you all know right now, I will not be able to do this book justice. I probably shouldn't even be trying to review it this soon after finishing it, because my thoughts are all various versions of, "ASKDAFJSKDLALSKD!!"

 

Four horror authors are invited by a young wealthy man--who runs a website devoted to all things horror--to spend the night in the Finch House and have the interviews that occur during that time to be streamed live.

 

The authors include, Sam, who writes horror with relatable everyman type characters, Sebastian Cole, a horror legend, Daniel, who writes teen oriented horror with moral messages, and our lone female author, Moore, who writes violent horror with a sexual bent.

 

Accompanying the four authors to the house are Wainwright, the website owner, and Kate, who operates the cameras, and is also Wainwright's girlfriend.

 

The group survives their night at the house without any major happenings occurring, and they all return to their normal lives. It's at this point that the book truly becomes horrific in the best possible way. Things start happening and the tension grows and...I'm going to stop there for fear of spoiling things.

 

The characters are fully formed and well developed, so much so that I truly cared for them and about what happened to them, and that did make the book difficult to read at times, but that's what makes really well written horror books so good.

 

Oh...and the ending? Perfect.

 

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Bernard Setaro Clark, and he was amazing!
