A LIFE TO WASTE
By Andrew Lennon
Dave is a middle aged waste of space. His days drip away in a haze of drinking, smoking and stealing from his mother. But one night the sound of screams disturbs Dave’s habitual living, and everything changes. Something evil is on the loose, snatching people from the comfort of their own homes. Dave’s neighbour’s, his family, his friends are suddenly vanishing. No one is safe. Unfortunately for Dave, it’s up to him to put a stop to it. Even if it kills him.
The synopsis of Andrew Lennon’s A Life To Waste gives the impression of a fun little horror story. However, Lennon’s writing style creates a horrific mind cluck out of it. Reading it is like sitting around a fire on a dark night being told an urban legend by a creepy old man. The story telling sucks you in as the story builds and the tension builds, and then you are suddenly dropped into a horror movie that really scares you. The ending is very prettily done, so reread that last part and let the subliminal sink in.
A highly recommended read.
