Book Review: Hater by David Moody

My birthday recently came up a few weeks ago, and my parents decided to take me to this store called Hastings. I don't know if where ever you live, you guys have this store but it's amazing! They have everything imaginable in there. Anyways, so I had some birthday money to spend and I decided to look in the book section since well..I love to read. I got two books (not including Hater) and purchased them and all that good stuff.

So I eventually decided Hater would be the first book I read since why not? I do have to say before I move on to the positive things about this book, that there were some adult themes sprinkled throughout the book that I personally had to skip, so if you are my age or you're uncomfortable with reading this type of thing, then this is your warning.  The summary about the book itself was a little hard to grasp when I first picked it up, but after reading the book it was pretty easy to understand once you went back after finishing it.

As for the positive stuff, the plot was AMAZING!!!!! No, more than amazing. SPECTACULAR!! I loved it! It was everything I wanted in a book (since I love horror and mystery) and I couldn't put it down. I think the best part about it was that it seemed to dig deep into the more negative emotions of society and ride on it. Hatred and anger were the key points being focused hence the title "Hater".

The story starts off with the point of view with a side character and goes into detail of the first "hate crime" to occur in this rollercoaster of a book. It's gritty and very detailed and it had me a little disturbed if I had to be completely honest, but I love feeling disturbed. Then the story goes to talk in the main character, Danny's, point of view. Danny works in a dead end job with a crappy boss that he doesn't like. He has a wife and three kids and lives in a dangerous neighborhood inside of a crappy apartment.

After that you start to see the world fall apart as the hate crimes spread and as Danny and his wife witness each happening. Occasionally, throughout the book, we leave Danny's point of view to witness more hate crimes occur.

It gets even better after that, but because I don't want to spoil the end for all you amazing readers out there, you're going to have to go buy it yourself on Amazon.

Now just so I can get you even more hyped about this book: it's a series. This means more madness to come.

I was so satisfied with this book, I would go buy the second in a heartbeat. I would give this a nice ten out of ten.
