The story was original and the main character was written well. The supporting characters are simple, but that lends to the reality of the book, they are just normal people. Nate himself isn't a complex person before his transformation. From that point on, his changes follow an orginal route you don't typically see in fiction. It is less predictable and seems much more believable than what you'd normally see.
I enjoyed the whole story, but there are several scenes that are so real, so gritty and so emmersive it gave me the chills. It was worth reading the book just for those parts alone.
I definitely recommend reading the book. It's an enjoyable read with a unique take on a genre.
Also, as a bonus, the author includes his novella Break. Very enjoyable as well, and an unexpected surprise when you purchase the paperback version of Beaten.
Story needs to be edited. Misspelled words, a sentence or two didn't make sense but hey, none of us are perfect! And it really didn't deflect from the story.
This was still an awesome read, great story!
Review: Author Sam Willis brings a gritty, realistic feel to the basic premise of a loner who joins the military and ends up getting more than he bargained for in the book, "Beaten". The main character Nathan Werner has real profundity and issues that are explored throughout this dark tale that focuses on the deep-seeded issues that plague society. Written in incredibly short chapters, the book moves you along through the life of Werner as he enlists in the military and quickly becomes the target of his drill instructor. It makes one realize the varying depths a pacifistic person can endure when entering a career where violence is the norm. With a title that sums up the ideas related in this book very nicely, reading "Beaten" is like stepping into a dark alley filled with plenty of danger and action and before you know it, you've made it through a changed person. There are plenty of times that the story just envelops you and you can't put this book down without finding out what happens next. At 344 pages, the book is well-written, yet could use a little touching up by an editor to flesh out some of the various typos and other issues that pop up throughout. However, this story offers the reader an action-packed account of one man's journey into a secret program where things are not always how they appear. With plenty of twists, "Beaten" manages to be original and brings plenty of insight into the subject of survival at all costs.
