And the award for most pointless book ever goes too...
Safety Net - Keiko Kirin

This was going to be a long winded, ranty review about all the reasons I didn't like this book and when it came down to it. I just don't have the energy or maybe I want to save it for a book that I really like and want to gush about. I have some Mary Calmes, Josh Lanyon, Rhys Ford and Harper Fox that I need to catch up on so I'm going with the latter.

 

So let's see if I can do this and keep it short and sweet, ok?
 Basically this was one of the most pointless books I've ever read. I should have trusted my instincts and did a DNF on this one, but no not me! I decided to keep reading I was sure I'd find that amazing book that got all the 4 and 5 star reviews somewhere, right? No, just no! That was not the copy of the book that I got.

 

Instead I got around 400 pages of 'oh my god Erick West is so amazing!!! Everybody loves him!' and 'Lowell Menacker is so gorgeous, everbody wants him!' and 'Ohmygod, Dale Lennart is...well he's Dale Lennart and the only person truly smart enough to realize that he was the best one of the bunch was Andy and that almost didn't end well.

 

Can I just say Erick West for me was not all that and a bag of potato chips and Lowell Menacker was a horn dog, so it's a good thing he was good looking, wasn't it?'

 

Ok that's it I'm done with this one. If you read it and loved it. I'm happy for you. If you read it and didn't love it I share your pain. If you haven't read it...think about it, there are other books out there that you might want to give consideration to, ok?

The Best of Pointless Conversations
The Best of Pointless Conversations - Scott Tierney Love this book though it involves nonsense conversations about certain topics. I laughed a lot while reading through the conversation about Superman (he should be called alien because he's a Kryptonian, and coward), Light Bulb, and pregnant women should not get a seat (or they would crush the baby's head).

A Pointless Existence
A Pointless Existence - Andy C
I've decided to add this to GR. Been circling around this one for ages, unsure if I should show it to my fellow dark fiction readers.

So today, after chatting with Beth, I had this sudden urge to recommend her this piece of short fiction on captivity since she seems to love stuff of this nature.

Therefore I dig around my safe and was ever so glad I could still manage to locate it. Went online to edit a Book Cover for it and slap it on GR to show my love for this story.

Do you like the cover?

Just a simple one is better than none right? :D


About the Story:
Since I've read this eons ago, I can't be writing up a proper review of it now unless I reread it again of which I might, since I have been missing it a little and it's short - very short.

What I can still remember is that this story is dark, disturbing and depraved. It might not be a masterpiece or professionally written but the concept and the story is gripping to me. At least, I could still remember it after years. And it still managed to disturb me whenever I think of it.

This story really isn't for everyone tho. It's sort of those 'acquired taste' thing.

There will be those who wouldn't feel for it. And yet some would feel strongly about it.

As it is super short, those who seeks for the value of character development and world building would definitely find none here. It's just a fanciful story, a fantasy for those who enjoy moments of wrongfulness and finding small thrills out of the horror created by such dark premise. Many of us are fascinated with how an insane or evil being mind works and the incomprehensible things they are capable of such as the permanent torture imposed on the protagonist of this story.

Since the story is just a narration of the protagonist (victim), we wouldn't be getting the POV of the antagonist (kidnapper). It's mainly the victim's re-accounting his predicament and longings due to his forced solitary.

Hence, if you are a forced captivity and dark fiction aficionados this might appeal to you.

It's a book-trailer. It acceptable on a book-site.
