This book had a slow build that kept you guessing throughout. The ending is what made it all worth the listen. When you think you know you dont. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.

This book was written very well with a direct account all the way through. I have Cherokee blood in my family, and I was very alarmed at how evil and greedy Andrew Jackson, Grant, and all that were involved in forcing the Indians out of their lands. Greed, gold hungry, revenge, entitlement. These are all the words that title this book efficiently. Well rounded account of what may be left out when the schools teach today!

So everyone is putting up pics and talking about this book on the Bentley Little Instagram. I was impressed with this one. This book read just like watching a horror movie. Had a very "stranger Things/poltergeist" feel to it. I would definitely recommend it, one of his best!

To say Bentley cant write is a understatement, this was a great work. Had that "Nothing But Trouble" movie vibe to it along with sincere underlying true horror. He really keeps the reader all the way to the end on this one for sure. This book was not a slow listen at all! Highly recommend for those that like books about real life horrors also.

So had to have a paperback for the pool.... on a Bentley Little trip lately! The fall brings changing leaves and overall change, but also brings its share of horror fiction!

I have to say I'm impressed with this author, he is everything that his influence claims to be. All these stories were creepy and full of macabre. His influences are Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, and Dean Koontz. All of these stories had a little bit of all three. I would recommend this book for horror fiction fans for sure.

Gonna give this one a try!

quote
Legendofcool

a lonely one; not at all the same thing as admitting one is lonely. Instead, it suggests with that a, that unassuming indefinite article, a fact that loneliness by its nature resists. Though it feels entirely isolating, a private burden no one else could possibly experience or share, it is in reality a communal state, inhabited by many

quote
Legendofcool

Lonely people are restless sleepers, and experience a reduction in the restorative function of sleep. Loneliness drives up blood pressure, accelerates ageing, weakens the immune system and acts as a precursor to cognitive decline. According to a 2010 study, loneliness predicts increased morbidity and mortality, which is an elegant way of saying that loneliness can prove fatal.

quote
Legendofcool

loneliness inhibits empathy because it induces in its wake a kind of self-protective amnesia, so that when a person is no longer lonely they struggle to remember what the condition is like.

quote
Legendofcool

Loneliness feels like such a shameful experience, so counter to the lives we are supposed to lead, that it becomes increasingly inadmissible, a taboo state whose confession seems destined to cause others to turn and flee.

quote
Legendofcool

But loneliness doesn‘t necessarily correlate with an external or objective lack of company; what psychologists term social isolation or social privation. By no means all people who live their lives in the absence of company are lonely, while it is possible to experience acute loneliness while in a relationship or among a group of friends.

quote
Legendofcool

What does it feel like to be lonely? It feels like being hungry: like being hungry when everyone around you is readying for a feast. It feels shameful and alarming, and over time these feelings radiate outwards, making the lonely person increasingly isolated, increasingly estranged. It hurts, in the way that feelings do, and it also has physical consequences that take place invisibly, inside the closed compartments of the body.

One Hare can change everything.... Very comical story of a man that accidentally hits a hare in the road, and the experience totally changes his life outlook. The book was very entertaining, with some comical moments. Reminded me alot of Into The Wild. Amazing how one animal can influence everyone that it comes in contact with.

Anyone can live this life he reflected provided they had the sense to give up the other life

Interesting, the idea that loneliness might be taking you towards an otherwise unreachable experience of reality.

Was good until he started talking about visiting "child whore houses" with friends in Bangkok! I do see he possibly was a very sick individual!

quote
Legendofcool
Travels | Michael Crichton

Often I feel I go to some distant region of the world to be reminded of who I really am. There is no mystery about why this should be so. Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, your refrigerator full of your food, your closet full of your clothes—with all this taken away, you are forced into direct experience. Such direct experience inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience.

quote
Legendofcool
Travels | Michael Crichton

If you‘re a writer, the assimilation of important experiences almost obliges you to write about them. Writing is how you make the experience your own, how you explore what it means to you, how you come to possess it, and ultimately release it.

quote
Legendofcool

Perhaps I‘m wrong, but I don‘t think any experience so much a part of our common shared lives can be entirely devoid of meaning, without a richness and a value of some kind.

quote
Legendofcool
Travels | Michael Crichton

For one thing, when we take responsibility for a situation, we also take control of it. We are less frightened and more practical. We are better able to focus on what we can do now to ameliorate the illness, and to assist healing.
