I so admire this book and the author for writing it; not that it’s an easy read, emotionally, as the author masterfully puts the reader through the mill, but it is justified. It’s an exceptionally powerful, well-constructed book, with a story that needed to be told. It reeks of authenticity, more’s the pity. The use of the afterlife in the plot is skilful, beautifully effective and credible. It’s rare for my heart to pound with excitement or fear whilst reading a thriller, but this book made me sweat with concern over the fate of the hero, Mikey.
What a brilliantly moving, involving 5-star book, one that I urge everyone to read. Congratulations, Mark Tilbury. This was the first book of yours I’ve read, but it certainly won’t be the last.
Michael Tate wakes from a coma in hospital with no recollection of how he came to be there, but he finds himself at the heart of a murder investigation. With no recollection of events leading up to accident, he relives his childhood memories in the most extraordinary way and my god those secrets well let’s just say they are shocking, harrowing and very, very sad and that’s all I’m going to say about this superbly plotted tale, as it’s definitely one the less you know the better the read.
Mark Tilbury has created an array of fascinating characters, my heart broke for Michael as his past is revealed, it’s brutal and heart breaking, but amid it all there’s hope, friendship and laughter. I do have to mention Detective Inspector John Carver never have I disliked a character so much, he’s the worse kind of monster and one that made my stomach churn. I always think an author is doing his job well if I have strong feelings either way about a character, and the author certainly manages to achieve this with Carver.Read more ›
When Michael wakes up in hospital paralysed from the waist down he has no memory of how he got there, in fact he has no memory at all. When odious Detective Inspector Carver turns up Michael learns he is at the centre of a murder investigation, accused of stabbing his girlfriend Becky to death. Michael has no recollection at all and has to go solely on the words of others. Still recovering from a serious head injury, and under the influence of some heavy-duty painkillers Michael lies in a hospital bed experiencing vivid dreams, flashbacks, and hallucinations. Time is running out for Michael as he faces being transferred from hospital to prison on remand, but slowly his dreams and visions help him to recover his lost memories and helps him unlock the door to the past. Unfortunately for Michael, this is a door a lot of powerful and influential people want to keep closed.
When I started The Abattoir of Dreams I wasn’t sure if it would be right for me, in the first few chapters when the reader first gets to experience Michael’s visions and hallucinations there is quite a supernatural feel to the book, however this was only for the start of the book with Michael’s imagination in overdrive as his memory begins to come back to him in strange ways. After a leap of faith on my part, I quickly got into this book, and although I found the subject difficult, the ghoulish part of me could not tear myself away from it for long.Read more ›
