What really stuck out to me was the magnificent way the author played with my emotions. While it was hard to keep reading at times due to the subject matter (child abuse), I wanted to find out what happened next bad enough to keep turning the pages. I became so engrossed in Michael’s story that I wanted to find out what happened to him that put him in the hospital, and what the future held for him. I also have to admit, the biggest reason I loved this book was that the villains were so well written, I wanted to push through to see what happened to them. Some characters are just meant to have a horrible end.
I’ve noticed flashes of my favorite author, Stephen King, in Mr. Tilbury’s other books, but this one, I think, is on par with many of Mr. King’s works. In true King fashion, I was reminded of the occasional stories I’ve read about atrocities committed in foster homes and other institutions, and it helped to bring the story to life in a way that many often fail to do. This story stuck with me for a while, and I doubt I’ll ever forget it.
There are few books out there that deliver the same kind of punch as The Abattoir of Dreams, and that puts this book and the author into the stratosphere, in my opinion.
Dark and cruel but incredibly compelling. I can see this one ending up in my top 10 books of the year and it will probably haunt me for a while yet.
The author expertly brought the reader back to the past history of the boys and I felt as I was there in the past and then to the present. A new author for me and I will read as many of his books as I can. Just excellent!
The best story I've read in a long time!
It both shocked and warmed my heart. It's Poignant, horrific and thrilling.
