I was hooked on this story from the start. I find the way it was written fascinating. The author literally dreamt this book, and then wrote it all out from his memory, without editing it. It's just perfect as it is! I heard about Marty Beaudet's experimental writing and, although curious, I didn't have time to go and read the serial as it was developing online. I finally found time to visit the blog and read the free online version when the author had already written 16 chapters. I read the whol ...more

I won this book from Marty himself from a contest here on Goodreads. Thank-you, Marty! :)

This was a pretty good book. At first I wasn’t sure how I would like it, but it didn’t take much reading to get into it. The sixth chapter(Pages 23-25) is when I really started to get into it.

There was quite a lot of unexpected twist and turns. It had me thinking of a few different possibilities. And then just when I thought the story line was going to be predictable, Beaudet, hit me with an even bigger sur

"Losing Addison" is a psychological suspense novella. It was a quick evening's read, and one I enjoyed very much.

Lester McCubbin, the narrator, awakes in a hospital. His head is bandaged, and he has a cast on his leg. He keeps asking the doctors about his twin brother, Addison, with whom he had gone on a lengthy car trip. They must have been in accident, he decides, but no one will tell him where his brother might be.

As the action unfolds, we learn about the differences between Lester and Addiso

I owe Marty Beaudet an apology! This slim little book got lost in the "to read pile" and I came across it as I was trying to organize. I have had this book for some time. Sorry for the delay in the review, Marty!

Losing Addison is a wonderful novella. It is well written and a fast read. I finished it in a few hours, which was good. Had it been any longer, I would not have done anything else until I finished it!

This is a psychological thriller. It has some surprises along the way. Some that you mi

This is a powerful piece of psychological suspense. The characters are vivid. The plot moves at a fast pace, with an original storyline and great twists. I was sucked into this fictional world and felt like I was living the story right alongside the characters. Loved it!

I really enjoyed this read mostly because of the straightforward, yet still complex, storyline. There are unexpected and eerie plot twists, while still being a believable tale. I would definitely recommend this book!

This book has a crazy twist! Even the ending is twisted. Wonderful read though, and I love that Marty Beaudet wrote in the front of the book for me. It gives it a special touch!

Spoiler Alert: this was well-written but anyone who recognizes the name Aaron Stampler or Tyler Durden is going to figure out the twist pretty easily.
