Unrelenting Terror

Unread postby ArgyrosfeniX » Sun Nov 10, 2013 1:03 pm

Anyone read this book?

I have to admit, I'm holding off on reading it due to the disclaimer:
This book is literally meant to cause you to experience a haunting. Don't say you weren't warned later. Don't complain to Amazon to have the positive reviews removed either, just because it's too scary for you. Things will happen to you, some of them far more intense than you expect, and it's your own choice. Then again, life isn't meant to be held at arms length, but rather lived to the fullest. This is a great place to start expanding horizons.


I've been a Paramedic and I currently work as an RN in an urban Emergency Department - I have a lot of ghosts already and a good dose of reality to drive my imagination. I find written horror affects me much more than scary movies due to allowing for more a more active imagination.

Any thoughts without spoilers?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

We, as a group haven't really discussed it, but yes I've read it. I think the disclaimer was just to inform the reader that Mr. Power was trying a new style. With out trying to reveal too much, the style uses repetition to convince the reader of the reality of the storyline (if you say it often enough, it's true?). It's a good read, but not a style I'd choose again. I think the repetition gets in the way. And most readers are willing to suspend belief already, so unneeded. This is just my opinion, so find out for yourself. It's worth the read.

Thanks for the heads up!

I'll sneak it into my "To Read" list sometime in the next few weeks.

Anyone else notice that the price on the book is $6.66? :shock: :?

I noticed that. It was an experiment, but by and large, failed. Some people notice "events" when they read it. I certainly do! But most people don't really enjoy that, as it turns out.

The editing needs to be spiffed up to, I bet.

Still, it's part of my attempt to not grow stale and boring. :)
