Hitchhiker is a suspenseful, compelling read that really keeps the reader grasped on every word. It's simply written, but very fast-paced. I felt myself unable to put it down as I got further into the story. The plot itself had me hooked, like a serial killer against another serial killer? The concept is just really entertaining, and I couldn't wait to read more.I really enjoyed this quick, but satisfying story, but the only thing I disliked was that I wish it was longer because I really enjoyed it, and I wished there was a sequel.

The bonus story was awesome as well, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

I was looking for a horror book by an author that I haven't read before. Tim Kizer is a new name and "Hitchhiker" must be his first offering on Amazon kindle. I am glad I bought this book.

I thought "Hitchhiker" was disturbing and very entertaining. It was a fast paced, gripping, easy read. Even though I am usually able to predict twists in horror/suspense books, "Hitchhiker" caught me off guard. The author knows how to pull the rug from under his readers' feet. I especially liked the trick with state quarters that Tim Kizer used to reveal who the second serial killer was.

My only complaint is that there is no sequel yet, which would tell us what happens to these serial killers afterwards. The book has three serial killers: a loner and a team of two twisted psychos, who battle each other. There is a lot that can happen between them after the events depicted in this book! I'm hoping the author will write a sequel. I'm a fan!

Also, there is a very interesting bonus story "Intoxication", which is more subtle, but riveting nonetheless.

I can't wait to read new books by this author, which will hopefully include a sequel to "Hitchhiker."

"Hitchhiker" is very suspenseful and doesn't rely on the body count to scare the reader. The writing is breezy and engaging. It hooks you from the start and doesn't let go. The book is worth every second you will spend reading it. I liked the way the author revealed the identity of the second killer. It was a nice twist, I must admit. And the way the killers figured out each other was quite inventive.

At first glance, "Hitchhiker" may seem similar to Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch's "Serial," since it tells about two serial killers who meet on the road. However, there are a few major differences in the plot and presentation of characters that make "Hitchhiker" a very enjoyable book even if you read "Serial." If you liked "Serial", you will like "Hitchhiker." And if you DIDN'T like "Serial", you WILL like "Hitchhiker!"

The bonus material is also very entertaining and intense.

I'm baffled by the reviews for this. It's two very short stories at best. And they're not very good, in my opinion. Complete waste of money and time. Glad it only cost 99cents. Not very suspenseful. Not very thrilling. Just...horrible.

This is a book that contains two short horror stories and several sample chapters from a horror novel. I am only mentioning this because it's not really clear from the preview of the book.

A hitchhiking killer flags a car and catches a ride with, well, another killer. No really a spoiler anymore - I saw something about it in the reviews so, I suspected this would happen. Still, the original twist aside, this is just like Tarantino's earlier works - it's not really about the premise, it's about the tension as the story unfolds. Multiple points of view, switching timelines, pretty much everything is there.

The second story is more subtle and that's, perhaps, why not so many reviewers talk about it. However, I found it more involving than the first one. Leslie's character is better developed than the characters in the "Hitchhiker" and her doubts about her sanity keep propping the story forward. An attentive reader will notice the influence of the genre classics in this story as well; however, it doesn't really make it predictable.

The book would benefit from a real table of contents and a more detailed upfront explanation of what's included. However, that's an easy thing to fix.

Both stories make for a good reading. Even though they are somewhat mismatched in their premise, the execution with multiple twists and revelations does demonstrate this promising author's style rather effectively. Good read for suspense thriller / horror fans.

The worst thing I've read on my Kindle so far. Both stories started out with intriguing ideas, but tanked in the execution. The events were highly improbable, and even editing to fix the misused words and awkward sentences wouldn't have helped that much. It just would've been that much more boring. The preview to the novel was the very worst waste of my time. Unfortunately, it was impossible to stop until the end. I was just that curious to see how much worse it would get. I truly believe a 6th grader could've done better.

I really liked these samples. They peaked my interest enough to get the entire book. The more books I read from this author, the more I like him and his books.

I don't understand the bad reviews on this short book. I thought it was a good quick read and a novel view of the serial killer genre! Maybe I'm weird, but I actually laughed at the story ending...it was a great entertaining read and I sometimes think some readers would find fault with anything just to be negative. Give this book a try when you want to be entertained for an hour. You won't be disappointed.
