But how in the heck do I review it? I absolutely want to shout about every thing I loved in this book but to do that would give away too many spoilers. The murders… man. Remind me not to upset Mr Parker as he has a very twisted mind. Each one was unique. Tailored to the individual, quite literally, based on their hashtagged responses to a Twitter account in the name of ‘bemykiller’. And good god are they brutal. I have to be honest. This is probably the darkest book I have read that has been published under the Bookouture label but this is not a bad thing. While the murders are at varying points described very clearly, it is still not in a particularly graphic way. Don’t get me wrong – readers of a weak disposition will likely feel nauseated. There were times when even I grimaced and I’ve been addicted to horror and thrills of that ilk since I was three years old. It takes a lot to spook me. But they also made me smile. In a good way – not remotely psychopathic at all. Nope. Not me.
When I say they made me smile in a good way, it is because they surprised me.Read more ›
The story starts off with a shocking incident. This is just a glimpse of what horrors are in store for the reader. If you are not one for horror films, then this may not be your type of read. Even though it is classed as a crime thriller, there is very much big elements of horror through out the story. To be fair if it was a film I think without a doubt it would be classed as a horror. The murders are extremely twisted and don’t make for pleasant reading. If you are a fan of horror films though or brutal murders in a crime thriller then boy are you in for a treat with Follow You.
I like how the author has incorporated the whole hashtag, social media thing in the story line. It makes it a very current read. The whole documentary thing felt a bit Blair Witch Project for me and if anything felt a mixture of that particular film and the Saw films.
Something I particularly enjoyed is how strong the female characters came across in this book. Especially for the story line. Hazel and Rena are characters that both really stood out for many reasons and the reader finds themselves really routing for them.
Follow You is with out a doubt an entertaining read that you can easily read in a sitting. There’s plenty to shock the reader and was certainly a whirl wind of a read. If you love a book that will make you squirm whilst keeping you hooked, this is the one for you.
I have now signed up to the author's mailing list because I can't wait to read another of his chilling thrillers.
The tv series analogy works as, for me, Be My Killer plays out more like a classic tv chiller infused with modern internet age sensibilities, akin to a mash up of an old Tales of the Unexpected episode from my youth and a modern, technology obsessed Black Mirror episode with a little of the distraction and false leads of a Jonathan Creek episode thrown in for good measure. The murders are gruesome and start from the opening chapter but described not overtly blood thirstily so that allows you to enjoy their sheer inventiveness.
As if Twitter wasn't infuriating enough, we now have the chance to view it as a new tool in a psychopath's bag of murderous tricks, thanks to the cheerfully macabre imagination of Richard Parker.
