Ian Woodhead is such a wonderful and intense writer!! I just get hopelessly sucked into every story I've read of his.
He's been around for a few years, has many many titles to his name and plays in all sorts of genres. Extreme horror, fantasy, sci-fi....
The guys got mad writing skills, that's for sure. Yea, I think we should all start addressing him as Sir Ian Woodhead ~ he's been Writer Knighted! :D

This go round it's a deep dark hardcore psychological extreme horror thriller. And it was oh so d

A deliciously depraved extreme horror short read (97 pages) by Ian Woodhead, Snatched opens the door to the inner workings of the mind of James, a seemingly upstanding pillar of the community, history teacher and soup kitchen volunteer, who has taken it upon himself to rid the world of the hidden evil within all young boys, by the means of kidnap, torture both physical and mental, and using any and all tools in his tool bag and items he finds in the homes he invades. He's also not averse to viol ...more

A terrifying and a terrific book from the start till the end

Wow what a terrifying, fantastic book. It left me wanting more... I couldn'nt put it down, a page turner from the beginning, it left me with my mouth wide open!! Not one chapter did I find boring I will definitely be looking for more of Ian Woodhead's books.

Shelves: reviewed
God Complex: is an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility.

Providence: the protective care of nature as a spiritual power.

Dissociative Disorders or State: are sometimes triggered by trauma and used as a coping or defense mechanism. While not losing one’s identity, the person experiences a mild to severe detachment from reality, immediate surroundings, daydreaming, loss of time or memories.

I like author, Ian Woodhead’s

Snatched is quite possibly the most extreme horror book that Ian Woodhead has written to date with some genuinely shudder inducing moments. In it we meet James, an ordinary, unassuming man who works in a soup kitchen at the weekends and teaches History during the week, but James has a secret, a horrifying secret all linked to a past full of abuse and depravity.

Ian has written this book in the first person narrative, which works really well and gives you a really good in-site into why he does wha

The premise is excellent. James has been kidnapping young boys to create the perfect child and disprove his mother’s beliefs that all little boys are evil. You can read my full review here... ...more

Brilliantly Twisted!

Seeing that this is the 1st book I've read written by Ian Woodhead, I was a bit concerned that his writing may be a little tame for my tastes. What I found however is that the man is just as twisted and deranged as I'd hoped. Every page is filled with the expectation of new tortures, new ways to make a person scream. This most definitely will not be the last narrative I purchase by this author. I've found a new love...the writing of Mr. Ian Woodhead

Ian Woodhead is just past the age of forty. He lives in the north of England and is married to a wonderful woman. He has forgotten how many children he has. He had been writing for nearly twenty years but has only just gained the confidence to start showing his work. Ian finds it a little creepy writing about himself in the third person.
