Now as for the Book itself, how about I let it’s reviews speak for it: (1 good and 1 bad)
Yuck, in more ways than one! (1/5)
Terrible, pointless, gory, and overwritten. An annoying guy gets dumped by his girl and commits suicide by slitting his wrist. We get to see his life passing before his eyes, which I guess is supposed to make us like him, but fails. Then we get a complete description of every drop and gush of blood, which is completely gratuitous anf adds zero to the story. Then he dies. (Not a spoiler; it’s in the title and description!)
Apparently this is part of a larger work. That book/series might be great, but I certainly won’t be reading it. If this short represents the whole, the book isn’t my cup of tea; if it doesn’t, it’s badly chosen and the blurb doesn’t fit.
Mr. Radley, you have my attention (5/5)
In Dead on the Floor, Rocky Rochford gives the reader an explicit snapshot into the very brief life of Matthew Radley. In the first installment of the Entwined Saga, Matthew hints at the reason as to why he would possibly want to die (we know that there are paranormal circumstances involved), but does not go into the details. Rochford’s ability to connect the reader to a likable character (though intensely damaged) is solid. After all, who can’t relate to a rough start to their early twenties? But, it is how Rochford crafts his character’s internal monologue that leads the reader asking “Matthew, what the hell happened to you?” and keeps the story moving.
I particularly enjoyed the form of the story. Of course, Mr. Rochford, what better way to begin a story than by starting at the end. By giving the reader a glimpse at his macabre end, we are instantly hooked and wanting to know how it all came to be.
If you are a sucker for the inevitable, in its most gore-laden form, you will enjoy Dead on the Floor.
