I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
You spend your days staring into a computer screen, trying to sell life insurance to young couples with new babies.
You spend your nights staring into a computer screen, extracting filth from and injecting bile into the internet.
You still live with the same dickhead housemate you went to university with.
Your only respite from computer screens are nights spent getting smashed with him at student bars, watching him prance around, trying to pull much younger girls.
Your life sucks and you suck at it.
One drunken night, you try something new.
But something that brings you new energy, new drive, new desires.
You start eating the young.
What did I think?
When I first started reading Cold Calling I wasn’t sure what to expect but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to read something as dark as this. The beginning of Cold Calling trundles along quite nicely, then all of a sudden the action starts and doesn’t let up.
I felt incredibly uncomfortable at times and it also made me feel sick to my stomach at points too but despite all that Cold Calling possessed the ability to keep me turning the pages. That’s pretty powerful writing from Haydn Wilks. I was most disturbed by the fact that Cold Calling is set not too far away from where I live (with one of the towns he visited being right on my doorstep!) so it all felt a little too close to home.
If you’re after a book that will get your heart racing, your mind boggling and your stomach turning then Cold Calling is something you should be adding to your TBR shelf. If you’re of the feint-hearted then I advise you put this to one side!
My Rating? ♥♥♥♥
