Review

"I-35 is a nail-biter of a road novel that crosses into the darkest territories of the soul. Brett Selmont brings serious game to this riveting thriller, and it takes some turns you absolutely will not see coming. Buckle up!"

Jonathan Maberry, NYT's Bestselling author of the PINE DEEP TRILOGY, FIRE & ASH, ROT & RUIN and EXTINCTION MACHINE, multiple Bram Stoker winner


"The road novel has been the heart and soul of American fiction ever since Huck set off down the Mississippi with Jim. London, Steinbeck and Kerouac all wrote books with highways running through them. By venturing into horror and the supernatural, Selmont charts a new direction for this classic form. Rough, tough and more than a little profane, "I-35" takes the reader on a trip into madness and damnation. It's a bleak journey but you'll be glad to have gone along for the ride."
William Hjortsberg, NY Times Best Seller, author of Falling Angel (Angel Heart)
 
"Tough, incisive, tough, evocative, tough, adroit, tough. Selmont will take you on a genuinely gripping journey down a highway that will inspire you to lock your car as automatically as you buckle your seat belt. You've been waiting for this one. A nifty piece of work by a talented writer."
 John Lutz, NY Times Best Seller, author of Single White Female  

"I-35 has a great cult classic level storyline that I think needs to be shared. If you enjoy sex, drugs and violence, this is quite a journey and one you will be pleased as punch to be along the ride for."

HorrorNews.net, John Clements


"Selmont has created a dark, page turning thriller full of bizarre and unique characters that draw us further down the road to oblivion. He's a writer to keep on your radar."
SPIN Magazine, Malcolm Campbell

From the Author

The follow up and Book Two of my "Road Series" ROUTE 66 is now available for purchase.  I'm very excited about the release of ROUTE 66 as I truly feel that this is the best work I've done to date.  I-35 was tremendous and the critical acclaim has been amazing.  However, I believe my writing (like most of us) gets better with each book I finish.

Book Three of my "Road Series" I-95 should be available in October 2013!

This book was better than I expected. Sure, there are tons of great reviews already, but I had never heard of the author.

I am certainly glad I took a chance. I loved the story line, although half the time I had no idea where it might all be going. Selmont has a rich vocabulary, and he paints a most bleak portrait of the American mid-west.

The protagonist, David, was a sympathetic character - the story is told from his POV - but I admit I felt a little guilty for routing for him as his secrets began unfolding.

Not for the faint of heart.
I just started reading the sequel Route 66, and loving it so far as well.

I love finding a new and talented author, and can't wait to see what else he has in store.

Selmont has crafted a tale that is darker than any book out there, with an ending that will make you say "ah ha!" as suddenly everything falls into place. He is a skilled writer that makes "I-35' an easy and entertaining read. While there are parts that may drop your jaw, there are times when you cheer for David, no matter how evil his actions are.

This is a real nightmare oddity with a lot of colorful ugliness. The scenes are vivid, but the characters are sloppy and the dialog is wooden at best. If it's a series, then sorry, just one trip down this interstate is enough for me. It's not bad, but I'm glad I picked it up for free.

Being familiar with the northern portion of I-35 I looked forward to reading the book. The beginning situations in Minneapolis tended to be rather brutal. So. . .if a person is put off by stark brutalness the book may not be for you.

There are enough twists in the plot after leaving the 'northern climes' that a reader will find 'harrowing'. Since the written word requires 'mind pictures' there are some of the situations that I'd rather not visualize.

Interesting and unusual. The last twists of the book probably set up the series. It could set up some interesting reading for those that want to follow the character.

It's hard to categorize this book. It's a thriller, a horror with sex scenes thrown in and a lot of violence, blood and drugs.

It's bizarre in a thought provoking fasinating addictive way. It's a dark story that stars a man named David, who suffers from blackouts and is on this journey to find his estranged younger brother who appears to be involved with drugs.

I both loved and was disturbed by David and his actions. This man suffers from a huge trauma. Having lost his parents at a young age and his inability to deal with it in a healthy manner, his life has completely spiraled out of control. His addiction to pain meds add to his clearly unhealthy lifestyle and his mental capacity.

David has a deep hatred for cops and life. He carries around an indifferent demeanor, when he is anything but. He is so riddled with pain and confusion and travels the world as a wanderer; a drifter. Never in one spot for too long, as his actions always force him out and onto another location.

David revists many of the same places he has visited but has no recollection of. Lately, he's seems driven towards something. It appears as if he is doing more than looking for his brother Jim to make amends, he almost seems to be looking for happiness; for somewhere to settle.

The introduction of Shawna allows you to see the sweeter side of David, but the one that continues to hold back as if he is afraid to let love in, to be happy, to be hurt again.

David was a fascinating character even when he was doing things that horrified a reader because it showed a more unfeeling side of David, what I called the cold and dead part of him.
