4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty sweet story May 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know what I was expecting, but this novella delivered a story that kept me engaged from beginning to end. The conclusion happened fairly quickly at the end, but it resolved the story nicely. I would like to know more about the circumstances that led up to this story. I assume the writer has more books that will address this in more detail. I look forward to more books by TJ Hudson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great first novel June 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Strange that not more people seem to have read this novella. "The House" is a tale that could just as well have been a horror tale if Hudson had twisted it slightly. All of the elements were there.

The dream of eternal life and power to rule the world have been wonderful recipes for all kinds of stories, in this case a science fiction post-apocalyptic tale. I personally do not get why people would want to live forever, nor rule the world. Imagine the boredom and insanity you would probably end up dwelling within. Maybe the yearning for this dream is a form of insanity.

I like this part of T.J. Hudson's tale. There is certainly an exploration of the lengths some people are willing to go to in order to obtain their desires for more, more, more.

Through Char and Charlotte we get to follow the measures taken to achieve the dream of immortality and complete power and the counter-measures needed to prevent that insanity.

For some reason the reader is warned about "The House" being written in British English. Does one actually need that warning? I get violence and sex, but British English. Maybe the author is just taking the piss.

More About the Author

TJ Hudson lives in Yorkshire, UK. Although his body resides there his mind can often be found wandering away to who knows where.

He decided it was about time these meanderings into the land of imagination were written down, and just maybe make some sense of it all.

Thomas is currently finishing the first novel in a new science fiction series.
