Mr. Hands Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Sun Bleached Winter
I admire how the author, D. Robert Grixit introduces the characters in this book and how he prepares his readers for what to expect. The author did a great job describing the atmosphere, scenery and how chaotic, gloomy, lifeless, dark, scary, eerie and dangerous his surrounding is in the wastelands.…
Horror books Review
Gary Braunbeck writes some of the best cerebral horror I have ever had the pleasure of reading. His stuff isn’t the typical “B” slasher film junk. Mr. Hands is no different.
Ronnie is a serial killer who was abused by a father who had no love to offer either Ronnie nor Ronnie’s mother. Ronnie knows and understands the pain of childhood. It has been his mission to look into the eyes of the children he comes in contact with and if he sees a painful future in store for them, he shows them how much they are truly loved by seeing to it that their pain is ended before it begins.
Lucy also knows pain. Her daughter, Sarah, disappeared and was believed to have been abducted by a child predator. Sarah left behind a bizarre looking carved wooden figure, Mr. Hands. She loved Mr. Hands and felt he watched over her. He has a small head, small body, legs but no feet and huge claw-like hands.
During one horrible night, Lucy, Ronnie, and Mr. Hands all come together in a strange meeting, unleashing a horror to be reckoned with. Mr. Hands has a mission and he will stop at nothing to complete this mission. God help anyone who comes in contact with him. Thus, the adventure begins.
This is horror at it’s best. The story is a bit slow in places, but when the action starts, it makes up for any lag time there may have been.
I highly recommend this if you love a good horror story that makes you think.
