- - - book description
Jeffrey Hickey's Scary, Man (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013) is a book full of beautifully developed characters just waiting for a story. Unfortunately, the story they get is way too realistic to be satisfying. Hickey does an excellent job of depicting the way life can slowly grind away at a man. But, he offers no real emotional catharsis. Without that payoff for the reader, Scary, Man falls flat. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this one, but I am interested to see what Jeffrey Hickey does next.
I received a complimentary copy of Scary, Man to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. For full disclosure, see the sidebar.
