Description

Serial

Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch

Hachette Book Group USA

May 12, 2009

Remember the twin golden rules of hitchhiking?

# 1: Don’t go hitchhiking, because the driver who picks you up could be certifiably crazy.

# 2: Don’t pick up hitchhikers, because the traveler you pick up could be raving nutcase.

So what if, on some dark, isolated road, Crazy #1 offered a ride to Nutcase #2?

When two of the most twisted minds in the world of horror fiction face off, the result is SERIAL, a terrifying tale of hitchhiking gone terribly wrong. Like a deeply twisted version of an “After School Special, ” SERIAL is the single most persuasive public service announcement on the hazards of free car rides.

Beyond a thrilling piece of horrifying suspense, SERIAL is also a groundbreaking experiment in literary collaboration. Kilborn wrote the first part. Crouch wrote the second. And they wrote the third together over email in 100-word exchanges, not aware of each other’s opening section. All bets were off, and may the best psycho win.

The SERIAL eBook contains the novella SERIAL, a Q&A with Kilborn and Crouch, author bibliographies, and excerpts from their most recent and forthcoming works: Kilborn’s Afraid and Crouch’s Abandon.

Not bad.

:
The story line was better than I expected and the details were gory but well described. Kinda hated there wasn't more.

And people, don't download a book called "serial" and get mad because it's not about flowers and pixie dust. If you're that sensitive, go watch spongebob instead you people annoy me.

DO NOT GET!!!

:
Serial (by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch) is a great, action packed.... okay let me be honest. This was the worst book that I ever read. If you were there when I did a presentation during class, you will know how much I hate this book. This is about these two Serial killers, a nut case that likes to kill the hitchhikers who, he picks up (Donaldson), and another nut case/hitchhiker person that likes to kill the people who gives her a ride (Lucy). What happens when fate brings the two together? A bad book. Okay.... I know that I'm not allowed to post any spoilers, but I think that after this book talk, no one will ever want to touch this book. So.... order of events: 1. Donaldson introducedby him killing some guy that is going to Oregon to see his family. 2. Lucy is introduced by killing two friends who are planning to go snow boarding at Lake Tahoe. 3. Donaldson picks up Lucy. 4. They run out of gas. 5. Find a gas station. 6. Lucy drugs Donaldson. 7. Lucy straps naked/knocked out Donaldson to the back of his car. 8. Donaldson wakes up. 9. Lucy starts the car and begins driving. 10. Somehow in some weird fantasy way, Donaldson manages to grab Lucy and drag him. 11. They are both dragged out into some rocky path. 12. They both are skinned alive and die (obviously). Again.... this was the worst book that I have ever read. There is no description and is basically like my list of what happened. It basically sounds like ths: "Donaldson: 'Look out Rocks!!!' Lucy:'Oh no... we both are going to die!' They roll off into the rocks. In the process they are skinned and die. The end." That is basically what it is. So, quick advice. DO NOT READ!!!! If you are going to read this, at least spend your time doing something else like reading Angels & Deamons, playing an addicting iPod App (Mega Jump), or just simply go on Facebook, 2015 Google Groups, or something else that will benifit you more. So if you follow my advise, then you will be just fine.

0/5 stars

Not for me.

:
This story was awful at best. I read the whole thing because I was interested in the collaborative authorship. First of all there needs to be a disclaimer that this is not for the weak, or even the normal, and it should not be allowed for downloading by anyone under 17. Just sick, sick writing. I think I will be scarred for life from this disgusting, disturbing story.
