The main character is Neil. He is only 21 years old. Neil gets his 19 year old girlfriend pregnant. He does not want to marry her and he wants her to have an abortion. He winds up marrying her.They have a daughter and name her Natasha. You will learn how they came upon her name. Neil is not a happy daddy. He gave up going to college. Wanted to be a chemist. Natasha is five months old and knows that daddy did not want her or her mommy. Baby is mad at daddy. Baby talks to daddy and puts him through a living hell. You will cringe at what Natasha does to her young daddy. His wife does not believe him and thinks he is having a nervous breakdown. The ending is predictable.
Wells takes a story, which could have been humorous, and turns it into a very creepy tale. The plot moves along quickly and never gets boring. "Baby Talk 1&2" is not one of the best books of this genre that I have read, but it is enjoyable. There are parts when the baby does awful things to daddy that will make you go "What just happened here, this is getting corny." Just keep in mind this is just a fun read. Don't expect a 5 star creepy horror story. There a some typos, spelling errors and grammar errors throughout. These could have been avoided with better proof reading and editing. Having said all that, I enjoyed the book.
As a parent, there's a deep-seated fear in the recesses of the love for our children that the tiniest of resentments we might have for our beloved children might somehow infect them. On the surface we laugh it off. After all, we love our children! That momentary annoyance we feel when the baby's cries wake us up from sleeping for the 7the time in a single night is only natural, right? The financial sacrifices we make so that they can have the latest toy at Christmas is what any loving parent would do, even if we have a fleeting sense of regret that our Christmas wishes don't seem to come true. Somehow, Mike Wells managed to slither into the coil of my amygdala and find the dread that these selfish thoughts will infect my children with evil. And then like the master artist that he is, he flicked it for a few chapters as if to demonstrate that "Yes, no matter how much good you do for your child, those errant thoughts will eventually cause your innocent baby to become a monster which needs to be thrown off a building." As amusement goes, this horror puts the practicality of the everyday into perspective. After all, what bad news can get you down when you're just happy that your child's not trying to kill you?
I am happily reviewing BABY TALK with a ***** 5 Star review.
This is a creepy story and may not be for everyone, but if you like chilling horror - this one makes your blood stop in your heart!
Neal, the father of baby Natasha - is not having the time of his life here. His five month old daughter "spoke to him."
Yes, spoke to him "in words" that stunned and shocked him, he thinks he is going mad.
For Neal, being a parent isn't all it's cracked up to be!
He knows his child is evil, and everyone else thinks he has lost it!!
This story is good. It had me hooked and I had to finish it.
Mike Wells author has mastered the "creepy chill factor" with this one.
Talented writing skill, along with the story line draws you in and holds the reader captive.
When baby Natasha DEMANDS "Feeeeeed meeeee Neal!" You will want to cover your ears.
You can feel the horror that has struck in Neal's heart. Terror!!
Job well done Author Mike Wells.
The best way to describe this gem is to think of your top 10 "Twilight Zone" episodes, and know this book could have easily been on the list. It's creepy in the same way Rod Serling managed to give TV viewers the heebie jeebies. Yet you can't help from smiling at the horror just presented to you.
I read Book 2 in one sitting; when I enjoy a novel, I have to finish it, even at the cost of sleep-deprivation. Readers will want the best for protagonist Neal, who accepts the consequences of becoming a father after a one-night stand. But no one will believe the "talents" his child demonstrates, a normal frustration for any parent. In this case, however, trying to explain the child's behavior is too outrageous for anyone to believe, except the reader, who understands Neal's heart-pounding fear.
Looking forward to reading more of Mike Wells' work, as much as I eagerly awaited episodes of "The Twilight Zone." However I feel about Wells' other books, this story will stick in my head for a long time, especially when taking a peek at someone's newborn. I don't think I'll enjoy a toothless smile in the same way...
