Hellbound is one of the most enthralling and energetic books that I've ever read. On a whim, I bought this book and ended up being completely unable to put it down.

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!

I read this book a great while ago and forgot to leave a review. Shame on me! Recentlly the film Tucker and Dale vs. Evil played a genius little twist on the cliche settings of its genre.

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.

Hellbound is a fast-moving, interesting read. I recognize some of Dante's and possibly Niven's/Pournelle's influences in the descriptions of Hell, but the general atmosphere is actually more visceral, with the link to a Vegas-like setting. I like the twists and turns of the ending, but found it almost moved too fast at the very end - I wanted more. I'm looking forward to a sequel.

Overall an enjoyable read and definitely a book I'd recommend to anyone with a taste for fantasy/sci-fi/philosophy/action writings.

I loved this book! It a non-stop rollercoasting page turner that doesn't let you up for air until the end. Set in Hell, this book is like Dante meets Tarantino. I found myself completely engrossed in the city of Hell, the landscapes, the details and the characters.

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!

Hawken writes in a way that is wonderfully descriptive, without long paragraphs of waffling like so many writers include, and has you guessing right up until the last page. Hellbound is witty, detailed, fast paced and packed with great characters. It's rare to find a book these days that challenges ideals we have accepted for centuries and to actually make you question your own beliefs. It will make fantastic dinner time conversation. What if Hell isn't what we've all been lead to believe? The best way to describe how much I enjoyed this book is to say that I finished it in two days. I couldn't put it down. Bring on the sequel!

Tim Hawken is going to become a very important writer (he already is to many). The description can tell you about the story, but from the first page I had a movie rolling through my head and couldn't put it down.
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!

I started reading this via Authonomy where Tim is a member and was sharing early looks at the book. Watching the book evolve to what it is today has been amazing. It is truly one of the most interesting books I have read in a long time, it sucked me and kept me reading and reading.

His ability to create the environment in your mind when reading is astounding, the detail to everything, even down to the littlest points make this book a great read. Will be interesting to see if this makes the leap from small time author to film fag... Good luck to him..

Def recommendation.

Format: Hardcover
One man's fight for freedom, from within the depths of his new-found domain: Hell. Michael, a modern-day warrior, flawed in life, takes on The Almighty with none other than Satan as his empathetic ally. Reborn, armed with supernatural abilities, he has a score to settle with Heaven. The stakes: freeing his angelic life love from an eternity in Limbo.

....Sounds like a movie? ...Hold your breath.

Strap in, we're transcending.... Hawken's take on the factional dynamic of Heaven, Hell and Earth is unique, lest genius. Seamlessly fusing action, drama, romance and comedy, he takes us on a surreal journey thru the afterlife from the POV of a man; damned, but with a chance for recompense. The philosophical undertones to this filmic and brilliantly non-linear tale gives everyone something to consider, without confusing what is a multi-dimensional thriller of epic proportions.

It's a pleasure to be working with you Tim.
