There was only one good thing that come from having a Pepsi at 7:00 at night (which caused yourself and your baby girl to not sleep until past 1:00 due to caffeine, which I rarely drink) was finishing this book. I am a bit tired at the moment so please forgive misspellings and grammar issues which, more than likely, would be there anyways. :)

I received this book from the author in advance for a completely honest review and that is just what he is going to get.

I have read numerous Matt Shaw books. This one came across to me as being different than all the others I have read. That is not a bad thing mind you. I love each and every Matt Shaw book and this one was no different.

What do YOU see what you look at your reflection in a mirror?

"I was still wearing the white powder upon my face. I rarely took that off. I don't like the face underneath. I don't like the person underneath. I find him hard to control. I find him hard to talk to. I find him hard to keep quiet. The makeup I wear keeps him hidden. The makeup keeps him at bay and that's the way I like him."

I admit, my heart hurt for this clown. He was dealt an awful crappy hand of cards in his early life. His parents divorced when he was young and most of the time he lived with his father- "A stern man who liked a drink. His demons mostly came at night where he then found the need to taken them out on me. By morning he'd always come into my cramped bedroom apologizing- and hungover- but I could never trust him, I could never taken him at his word."

The clown simply wanted to make children smile. Unfortunately his close friend has a strong hold over him and thinks "children should be seen and and not heard.

Matt Shaw's latest novel could quite possibly be his best yet. This clown is one of his most unique characters and could very well rival, Peter from Happy Ever After.

People might try to compare Clown to Stephen King's IT.but they can't really be compared. IT was a supernatural horror story. Matt Shaw's Clown is pure psychological terror. Someone like this could very well exist in real life. We've all seen or heard about crazy people that talk to themselves. Matt Shaw lets you inside the head of one such person.

This story is very dark and disturbing. The finale had me cringing. The ending was a surprise and very fitting. Fans of Shaw's work and newbies will love this novel.

"Clown" is a twisted novella told from two distinct points of view. First, from the point of view of a down-on-his-luck clown, an entertainer of children. And second, from that very same clown's psychotic, child-killing alter ego. Frankly, those two don't really get along that well.

This will give you an entire new reason to be afraid of clowns. Matt Shaws books never disappoint me! Just when I think I know what will happen next I realize he has gone in a totally different direction. If you love horror this is the book for you

Clown is the traumatic and brutal trip into the disturbed mind of a man fighting against the onslaught of a mental disorder that pits good against evil, and as evil becomes more and more prevalent the tension rises to some heart stopping moments.

By day he’s mostly the entertainer, working the kids parties and the Park to drum up business, polite, funny, wouldn’t say Boo to a goose it seems. He leaves his makeup on to keep away the evil one but it’s not working anymore, in fact it’s taking over, he’s losing control and when he learns what’s been going on when he’s not in control.
It can only end one way, somebodies going to hell.

The dialogue is handled really well, it’s mainly pretty obvious which persona is talking and this leads to some great opportunities to mix it up, cracking story I couldn’t stop reading the second half as our protagonists situation escalates to the extreme.

Matt Shaw is fast turning into my discovery of the year and I’ve got a hell of a lot to catch up on, the writing is disturbing but not in too much of a vulgar way, it’s cleverly written, hiding behind some breathtaking moments and I’m loving it.

Clown was given to me by the author as a Beta read for an honest review, it’s now available to buy and I recommend you get it, my thanks for the opportunity and I look forward to reading more of Matt Shaw’s work.

Another great job by Matt Shaw. He never ceases to amaze me. I have read several of his books and his writing is unique and diverse.

CLOWN...good clown vs. evil clown. This clown enjoys entertaining children at their birthday parties and such. He likes to see them smile and laugh. When he goes home it is a different story. He fights with the evil clown, the one that wants to do bad things, disturbing things.

It was interesting reading this book, being in the mind of the clown, hearing the arguments that ensued. Seeing which one was becoming stronger, and in the end...oh the end!

I haven't read a story quite like this. It was a good change. I highly recommend it if you are into extreme, gory, or disturbing.

This book was given to me by Matt Shaw as a beta read for my thoughts and an honest review. Thank you, Matt, for the opportunity. I think this was a great idea that turned into an amazing read. Matt is a very talented writer with an excellent imagination.

5 stars, yes!! I will continue reading Matt's work. Well done, keep up the good work.
