5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic, Yet Personal. Entirely fantastic December 12, 2012
Format:Paperback
How to Kill Yourself... How to Kill Yourself.... The title alone lets you know that you are in for something different here.

But I open and start reading the first section, and I'm like, "Wait a minute, did I buy the wrong book? This is about some junkie hooker." By the 2nd chapter I was sure I had, in fact, bought the RIGHT book, that it was something different, and that it was something that I was going to love.

Hunt manages to tie together 4 different 1st person narrative sections into a seamless story about cosmic love, hate, betrayal and indifference. We get a very unique take on some very tired characters: Death, God, Jesus, the Devil. We get a very personal story of disappointment on a supernatural scale. And, perhaps best of all, we get a peek at what Mr. Rogers has in store for eternity.

I'm telling you, this book sucks you right in and is over before you even know it, leavening you wanting much more. Buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damned Good! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of C.V. Hunt's work. Her "Endlessly" trilogy is well crafted and quite enjoyable. "Danse Macabre" was an awesome story that demanded a novel-length treatment.

"How To Kill Yourself" blows all of them away. No pun intended. This story is so clever, so creative, and so well done that I can only marvel at Hunt's talent. I want to be upset with her because she delivered another short story that should've been a novel, but I can't find it in me. I'm just too pleased with the story as is.

Though the masses will certainly take exception to her treatment of the greatest story ever told, I place it alongside Moore's "Lamb" as pure creative genius. It's damned good.

Hunt's writing grows by leaps and bounds with each release. Where will she go next? I eagerly await the answer to that question.

4.0 out of 5 stars C.V. Hunt Kills Me October 21, 2012
Format:Paperback
I know when I read something by C.V. Hunt I'm never going to be disappointed. From vampires to werewolves, from funeral homes and zombies, I've enjoyed an array of her work including a love poem that was included in a love notes anthology earlier this year.

Upon first glance at the title and cover of her new work, How To Kill Yourself, like many that will suspect, I thought she was about to take stab at the rebellious punk teen generation. This novella doesn't even come close.

We first meet a junkie who is about to have her dead hand removed, only to end up in a dystopian-like dream world, eventually descending into Hell and transforming into a dark angel. From here, we come across God telling Jesus he's giving up on the world because no one believes in him anyway.

Death and "Diavol" are having a lover's quarrel. And the book closes with the dark angels battling it out for the rights to Purgatory and Hell. Hunt treats each of the deadly sins as unique anthropomorphic beings, and even gives Suicide a voice of her own (along with a bright hair color).

Like other reviewers, my biggest complaint is that the story is too short - only 86 pages in paperback form. Hunt's sarcasm and dark humor shine through, ultimately leaving the reader wanting and asking for more.

Devout Christians will definitely be offended, but not being afraid to offend is definitely one trait that makes C.V. Hunt a great and honest writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverting, minimal, and worth your time. A fun read. December 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Brief, funny, clever, sometimes juvenile, never boring, creative, swift, unrelenting, violent, bold, maniacal, cynical, not what you learned in lit class, and recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kill November 25, 2013

I have to admit that I read this in one sitting and liked how the different perspectives worked. The best was Jesus and who I assume was God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read June 18, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't let the low price or the somewhat low page count fool you! This is a great story. I found the characters to be well defined and original, the environments vivid and colorful, and the plot very satisfying and unique. It starts where it should start and ends where it should end. There was no, what I like to call, "Stephen Kinging" here...meaning you are not subjected to page after page of dribble and filler put in place by the author to meet the publisher's page count minimum.

If you want something new, well written, and creative from an author you haven't, but should have, heard of before now, then How To Kill Yourself is what you're looking for.

I wasn't looking for this book, but, I stumbled upon it & read a summary about it & decided to purchase it. It arrived earlier than expected & was a pretty good read! My friends have enjoyed it as we'll! Great price, too. I would recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go ahead and judge this one by its cover January 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kinda like if Neil Gaiman's AMERICAN GODS did bumps of meth off of a Bowie knife and trimmed itself down to a manageable length. Sort of.

3.0 out of 5 stars What do mean, what was my suicide attempt like?!
This is a tricky one to review. I'm not one to spoil it for the rest of the gang.

This is a much bigger, more involved story then you'd think. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars At least it was short.
Instead of wasting lots of time and vitriol for this bit of pulp writing, I'll just say if this is the quality of Ms. Hunt's work, then I'll gladly pass up her other stories. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not interesting at all.
I thought the writing was boring. I didn't understand the plot. Nor did I want to. I found nothing redeeming about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for depressed people
I got this because it was only $ .99 cents and I liked "The Brothers Crunk", also a Grindhouse Press title. First thoughts, it's short. But, bigger isn't always better. Read more
