    SPOILER ALERT An interesting and fairly well written and descriptive novel by Mr Hutson who has come a long way since his slugfest days However I felt there were loopholes and gaps that should have been filled in the little girl's story could have been expanded a bit and not in terms of descriptions of what happened to her but it did seem rather abrupt and what was the point of Tish? Ok I understand that Hutson didn't want to mention Gina as it would have given the game away as to the real reason Paul had been abducted but those wasted words could have been used to enhance another part of the story I remembered the clue Hutson had put in earlier about Gina beimg observed when she left the hotel it had to have been Frank It didn't take too long to put all the pieces together and realise that all three characters were connectedI found myself both empathising AND despising all three characters at different stages Naturally anyone would feel sympathy for the parents but towards the end I found myself despising them for what they had done especially the husband who realistically I should have pitied the most The tension was uite unbesrable at times and I felt like shouting For goodness sake just get him out of the bloody coffin It did make me uestion my morality because I was actively rooting for Paul to escape from the coffin and wreak some sort of revenge on Gina and Frank and being a parent I could empathise with their pain anguish but they both sickened me at the end and even though I could not imagine having any empathy for someone like Paul in realityI wanted him to escape and have his second chance

    Epitaph by Shaun Hutson isn’t for the faint hearted An incredibly faced paced horror thriller Epitaph is a story of revenge child abuse and murder – a most heinous murderEight year old Laura Hacket is on her way home from school the final day of the summer term – she has seven weeks of holiday ahead and so much to live for Unfortunately for Laura she won’t get to enjoy her break she won’t get to see her parents again and she won’t get to play with her friends Laura is abducted and killedThirty Six year old Paul Crane has everything he could ever wish for a steady and rewarding job as a talented copy writer money and a loving partner Amy He has spent the last 15 years going on exotic holidays staying at five star hotels and travelling first class – money has never been an issue – until nowWhen we are first introduced to Paul Crane the copy writer has returned home from work after being made redundant from “Meyer and Banks” and is at risk of losing everything he has worked for With a volatile economy and a market where no one is hiring the outlook is bleakAfter a night of drinking alone in his flat a flat he can no longer afford – festering in his misery; Paul awakes in a dark and confined space His mind in overdrive as his hands hit an unfamiliar obstacle he suddenly realises he is in a coffinFull Review on the Blog

    It was alrightHave read others by Hudson and felt this was by comparison predictable slow and just mehGood character development but it didnt make up for the ending feel a little dissapointedStill an easy enjoyable read Would be impressive if i hadnt read others by Hudson

    Wow did not expect it to end that way at all Going to have to actually have to try to pick up some of his other stories sometime

    25This book was a lot longer than it should have been Overall I enjoyed the book The story was fine kind of predictable and slow but fine There are a handful of great chaptersscenes that really kick things into high gear but they end just as rapidly as they start which left me wanting from the story I wanted to feel something other than meh One of my biggest knocks against the book is that the story is itself There's no deeper meaning no character building or anything to take away after you finish It's a basic story with one semi likable character some plot holes and a lot of extra unnecessary pages That's not even mentioning the fact that there are only two real settings in which the story takes place Most of the story is cut down to dialogue and flashbacks which really threw the pacing off Overall the book is meh and the story is meh The ending was rushed and unsatisfying and there was one major plot hole that never got solved very annoying One small thing I should mention that was good is the author's ability to create a capitvating image for pain Anytime the main character experienced pain emotional or physical I could really picture it clearly and I very much appreciated that small attention to detail

    Finished reading I uite enjoyed reading this book even though some of it was a bit sick because of the themes of the story I kinda expected who was going to be in the coffin but I won't spoil it for anyone who might want to read this book at some point Four out of five stars ✨ for Epitaph by Shaun Hutson

  7. Liz Howell Liz Howell says:

    Odd story some ending predictable but punishment not appropriate

  8. Eve Carter Eve Carter says:

    Well written but somehow disappointing at the end

  9. Sere Sere says:

    Nice if not terribly original premise horrible horrible execution The characters ALL of them are unidimensional they don't grow and they aren't likeable They spend the time bitching moaning and wallowing in self pity I was fed up with Paul right from the start The plot was predictable view spoiler5 pages in and I already knew what was going to happen I couldn't believe that was all there was to it so I kept hoping there was some kind of twist in the end but no hide spoiler

  10. Damian Pearce Damian Pearce says:

    Though the plot has the rather pleasing pace of most other Hutson stories it is the characters that are hard to follow as non of them at worthy of sympathyI could understand why they felt the way that they did but their choices just made them into people I really couldn't care aboutI guessed what would happen in the ending I suppose this type of story needed a twist so it was easy to work out what was going to happenSo to sum up easy to read held no surprises had unlikeable characters that's an understatement and had an ending that I couldn't care less about To rinse this one out of my eyes I'll have to read Hybrid which was the first book by Hutson I ever read and made me wanting Skip it unless you could read out in one sitting then nah still not worth it
