Book Description

Eric can't remember the recurring dream that keeps waking him in the middle of the night with an overwhelming urge to leave, yet he spends each day feeling as if he desperately needs to be somewhere. With no idea how to cure himself of this odd compulsion, he decides to let it take its course and go for a drive, hoping that once he proves to himself that there is nowhere to go, he can return to his normal life. Instead, he finds himself hurled headlong into a nightmare adventure across a fractured Wisconsin as the dream reveals itself one heart-pounding detail at a time.

Horror, science fiction, dark fantasy. From the author of The Temple of the Blind. 84,000 words.

Okay, now THIS was interesting! I like the way the story's written - not that it's just written clearly, well, and with good grammar, spelling, and punctuation, but that the plot is so unique! I'm reminded of Odd Thomas from Dean Koontz - the uniqueness about the characters is so intresting! Eric seems to be a well-adjusted, healthy, average fellow with no mental or psychological complications - then, the dream. The dream that won't go away. The dream that keeps... compelling.... him...

From the development of the initial character, to seeing his family surrounding him, to his sense of humor, I loved everything about this book. And the imaginativeness and warped plot just kept me up way too long into the night reading. I am very, very happy with this book, I love the grisly details of the environment, of what poor Eric deals with, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending! It's just too fitting. Seriously, if you like something that'll keep you turning pages but make you smile or shiver with disturbance, RUSHED is just the ticket.

Take the drive into something fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars A horror story for non-horror fans! October 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yes, I mean that headline. I normally don't like horror stories, lots of blood and suspense drives me nuts, especially when they seem to be egregious just to satisfy what an author thinks the reading public wants. Well, this story DOES NOT fit that profile. Instead, the horror is softened by funny interactions with his wife, brother, and even a "ghost" on his hated cell phone. A cell phone that by the way can pick up whether he is in our world or another and also send pictures of the monsters the "hero" faces. Now that's a gadget I want to carry too. And most importantly, this "hero" is clearly a normal human-being, carrying around a cell phone to keep in contact with his wife, and not evincing any more than normality in dealing with the challenges he faces. Makes you really wonder how you would react in a situation like he faces, as his wild trip into the edges of another world seem so vividly like something you might face in the far flung corn fields of michigan or wisconsin. I definitely won't look at a corn field the same again, but will be looking for more novels from this author. He can certainly write and pull you into a world you never would have expected. And I'd like to find out more about the worlds his brain can send our way.

So I really loved the start of this book and the plot. It was very exciting. This guy Eric keeps having a dream and feels he needs to be somewhere. But as the story went on I began to get annoyed at how the Author kept saying Eric hates cell phones, didn't want to use them, etc. And also every time Eric would remember something the author would remind us the he remembered it from his dream. Over and over. But we already know that. Him following his dream and remembering stuff from it is what the story is about. It's not like we forgot. And it wold be mentioned right after already saying it a few sentences ago. After the 5th time it was getting too annoying. It just went on and on .... he hates cell phones ... remembered this from his dream .... he wanted to just get rid of his cell phone ..... this was familiar because it was in his dream .... He used the cell phone through his entire journey so it was useful, but at the end of the book he is STILL talking about how he hates cell phones. Seriously, this lasted all the way to the final chapter. And after having been shown how useful they are.

The author overly explained everything. For example something will happen ... like he'll see a monster and not know what to do ... then right after that the Author will say "He saw the monster back in the field and didn't know what to do ..." I feel like the whole book was just one bit repeat of its self. It dragged on and on because of that and never really went anywhere. Eric would meet random people, or random strange things and that was interesting at first, but after a while I didn't care. I was just annoyed and wanted something to happen. I can not say I enjoyed this book. It had promise, but did not deliver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, suspenseful read August 24, 2013
By V G
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am really glad I found this download. I try to save my reading for when I have to kill time, like when I'm taking public transportation or waiting somewhere, but I couldn't help but read this at home, too. At first I expected it to be like an Odd Thomas rip-off because of the protagonist's urge to go somewhere even though he didn't know where he was going. This was nothing like the Odd Thomas books at all. The journey itself was the focus of the story, more so than the destination, and what a strange, trippy journey it was. The destination was pretty crazy, too, now that I'm thinking about it. If you have an open mind and can lose yourself in a tale of the weird and supernatural, then you will probably enjoy this book as much as I did. I can't wait to order more from this author. I already have all the free stories and now I'm delighted to see that he's written a series (The Temple of the Blind books 1-6).

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd give it no stars, but I can't do that! September 26, 2013
By Nuid
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book started out ok IMO. But by the time I was half way through, I was bored stiff and couldn't wait to finish it. I was very glad I hadn't paid for it - not even $2, on my Kindle.

Character enters new landscape, describes in detail, describes how it could become scary, but it doesn't, he carries on, then he remembers it from his dream, carries on, has a phonecall on his mobile, then a weird scary monster-animal appears in the distance and begins to follow him, some more pages, then the animal-monster gets nearer, eventually leaps at him, but he miraculously gets away unscathed. Now repeat that seven or eight times. Throw in a few pseudo-ghosts, and the fact that he seems to be on a mission but he has no idea what the mission is, or why he is there, (but is still bravely pursuing his "mission"), throw in a few references to alternative realities, or other dimensions or whatever, throw in a reference to "golems", a reference to Indiana Jones, and then the ending - crashingly boring like the rest of the book.

If this had been a film, I'd have regretted the loss of two hours of my life. But I don't like giving up on books, so in this case it was a loss of a day and a half. After all the dross, I thought the ending might be half-way decent. It wasn't.

I've just realised that I only review books that I thought were awful. I must go and review some of the ones I loved!

You will start this story and not want to put it down. As a matter of fact, most of the time you will forget to breathe. Reading this is a truly unique experience.
