This was something like a thriller lite. A Lifetime television brand of thriller. So incredibly bland and average, it's almost tough to review. The thriller aspect was completely predictable. The rest, the characters, the writing was just so very bland. The literary equivalent of wonderbread. The literary equivalent of a glass of stale tepid water. Not a single original thought, not a single inspired phrase, not a single funny joke or character quirk, just nothing. This happens, of course, with ...more

It's rare that I find a book that I can't put a bookmark into the place I stop for the night and go to bed, but that's what I got with this book. I started reading it after supper and read until I finished the final chapter shortly after midnight. The plot of Phobia is a fast paced psychological thriller that will pull you into the lives of the characters and keep you turning the pages to find out what will happen next. Each of the main characters have their own personal fears to overcome so the ...more

Not sorry I read it, but won't be seeking out any other books by this author.

Although very predictable, this book had a decent enough story line to keep me reading. I had a few problems with it...

It's written from a first person point of view, and it reads almost like an outline or a chronological list of events. "I went home. I had dinner. the next day, I did blah, blah, blah. Very strange and somewhat awkward to read. Also, I was very confused at the beginning of the book because it seems ver

Everyone has a phobia or six and this book take a look at what happens when those phobias are exploited. Open the first page and you are automatically thrust into a story as told by Mathew, a man with a few phobias of his own and one heck of a story to tell.

The author presents a story that is well researched through and through, has characters that are sympathetic at times and unsympathetic at other times, keeps you interested and turning pages like a mad person (but only hypothetically mad), an

i dont know what kind of a mind comes up with this stuff but im pretty sure you can consider yourself one of her victims after you read this. you have to come to wonder about your own sense of fear and what it is in your life that will eventually make you face them. The exploration of the subject of fear in the story, and the many different ways in which fear can affect ones life, is very detailed and comes together through the lives of the characters. but then there is more to it than that. As ...more

I live in Las Vegas, NV with my two retrievers. I started writing over fifteen years ago, mostly technical manuals with a little added pizzazz. I've also been writing novels since I was a teenager, however back then, they were either hand-written in penmanship that was barely legible or type-written. Penmanship and typewriters. Do those words still exist? Do you remember those typewriters? Didn't ...more
