So. Damn. Tired.
Listen, I get it. I have done things I am not proud of because I was exhausted. Poor Corrina just wants sleep and frankly it's not unjustified to do whatever it takes. Lindsey's writing is excellent as usual and this story is a grabber. Dig in. And hopefully Corrina can get in her ZZZZ's.
I mean... if you're tired, you're tired. Another brilliant horror read from Lindsay Crook! The shit that rattles around in her brain is a little scary and delightful all at the same time!
An effective remedy to snoring…
Poor Corrina. All she wants is a decent night’s sleep. Suffice to say, John gets what’s coming to him. Personally, I’ve learned from this tale of woe that one should not upset a woman in need of an hysterectomy.
When I made a post on FB, saying if I didn't get a hysterectomy soon, I'd have to do it myself, Lindsay made a comment about a plot for an extreme horror story! I, of course, encouraged her, as did Sean Hawker, then, I forgot about it, like you do! Until the next day, the....next....day!! When Lindsay sent me the unedited copy!! I was complete blown away! In such a short time (The Next Day!!!! ), she had captured my situation perfectly!! It made me laugh, then cry, then laugh some more! It absolutely made my day, my week, my month, even my year!! The perfect therapy - I will read this whenever I'm feeling overwhelmed by my pain and/or lack of sleep, or just when I'm feeling down! It will be my bible! I fairly recently learnt a new word, "cathartic" and that is exactly what this book was for me!! I still can't believe this is a thing!! I can't thank you enough Lindsay, or should I say, Doctor Crook?? One of the best things to happen to me! This is a fantastic, brutal but fun read for anyone! The story develops brilliantly, and the outcome is fantastically satisfying, I think everyone will be able to relate to it to some degree! 10/5
To a chronic snorer, with a wife that wakes me up multiple times nightly, this story is absolutely horrifying!
I would consider Waiting For Silence to be an Instant Godless Classic. It is short, "sweet," and it cuts to the bone. Much like Bradbury, Lindsay Crook knows how to develope a character quickly, suck you in, and then throw you off guard with an ending you least expected.
