The plot is delicious, the characters are so delightfully varied and robust, but they all pale in comparison to the imagery which this book illicit.
Be prepared to be swept away into the underworld... then finding out that you love it!
As a lover of philosophy and anthropology (with several years of Catholic school thrown in) I found this book to be an utterly liberating take on the traditional story of heaven, hell, god and satan.
If you haven't already, do yourself a favour and buy this book... or steal it and become Hellbound!
Mr. Hawken is a master of misdirection and a natural story teller. If this book were made into a movie I can only hope someone with serious talent gets involved. I found the dialogue very pulpy and witty. I want to read it again so I can go back to hell one more time. Going there with Hawken isn't so bad.
Overall an enjoyable read and definitely a book I'd recommend to anyone with a taste for fantasy/sci-fi/philosophy/action writings.
Back to “Hellbound”! I liked it way more than I expected to like it. By the end of it, I realized I liked it more than I had expected to like it after going through the first half. It was just getting better, and I loved how everything was wrapped up. Let me try to explain. First of all, Tim Hawken showed a lot of imagination and creativity in building his vision of Hell. I must admit I was a bit concerned at first that Hell would end up drowned in clichés, but it didn’t happen. I liked the author’s idea of Heaven, Hell, and the Creation. The fact that Hell is a place destined to the rehabilitation of corrupted souls was interesting and unique. The “system” the author imagined made every bit of sense, and I liked that my questions about it were answered in the end. The Devil’s city is the perfect image of fun, sin, debauchery, and total freedom to do as one pleases. It’s not a surprise that many souls fall even deeper into sin, surrender to it, and become demons. However, the Devil has a weapon that helps him make sure Hell doesn’t become overcrowded: The Guilt. Every hour, the souls are torn apart by their guilt, and are forced to remember the terrible things they did on Earth. This torture makes them regret their sins, obtain forgiveness, and eventually go to Heaven.Read more ›
The thing that I most enjoyed was that it makes you think. In between action scenes there are these wonderful insights into religion, philosophy, life and sin.
A quick read at around 220 pages, I would recommend this to anyone over, say 16, who isn't afraid to have their eyes blown open.
I can't wait until Hollywood turns this into a dark and twisted movie!
So many "aha" moments, laughing, and tears. Michael and "Lotte" is the most bittersweet story you'll ever read...The end had me counting down the days and watching Tim's twitter account for updates on the continuation!
I'd go as far as saying I even had a bit of an awakening...
Thank you, Tim.
Read this book!

Interesting story line, never quite thought of Satan that way, could have been a brilliant story with more fill and it finished quite abruptly.Published on February 8, 2013 by Ruth Green
Well that was interesting. I didn't really know what to expect when I got into Hellbound. I'm happy to say it isn't a proselytical text. Read morePublished on January 21, 2013 by Sadie Forsythe
