    One thought on “Face

    1. Tressa

      I'm a fan of Tim Lebbon's Berserk, but this book barely held my interest. Any story that starts off with a snowstorm and a lanky, greasy hitchhiker is OK in my book, but it was all downhill from there. The characters were irritating, especially darling Nikki and her sexual obsession with her psychopathic heartthrob, Brand, who kept popping up at her band rehearsal and keg party. Was I reading a horror book or watching 90210? The mother is a shallow religious nut and the dad is a mewling, wimpy t [...]

      I’ve decided it’s time I shared a secret with you my fellow readers, and even though I’m not sure how you’re going to take it, I need to let it out. I am a pessimist. Scratch that. I am way beyond that. Instead of seeing the cup half full, it’s not only nearly empty, but the cup’s dirty and my water has floaters! I’m a hard woman to please and when it comes to books. Well let’s just say, you have to be utterly fantastic to get my vote. If this comes as a shock to you, imagine my [...]

      Wow. What an intense book! A family of three picks up a strange looking hitchhiker named Brand in the middle of a terrible UK snowstorm, but he doesn't seem to need a lift. All he wants, he says, is a moment of their time. But he says a few offensive things, and they kick him out of their car. They think the ordeal is over, but Brand seems to be stalking each family member separately, for different reasons. He is intent on having a moment of their time, and if they're not willing, he's certainly [...]

      This will be the 2nd from Lebbon for me, the first a novella in Four Rode Out, read about a year ago give or take. Story begins:Later, they would all wonder how they had not guessed the truth. He was waiting in the snow, but after climbing into the car he did not seem cold, his breath did not condense, he appeared calm and composed. He did not act like a man who needed help.Onward and upward.Soa family returning home to Monmouthshire from a 3-day vacation in Cornwall drive through a freak snowst [...]

      Lebbon has a disconnected feeling to his horrorguely like Charles Grant, but less dream-like. Disconnected, sort of like an out-of-body experience. It's very weird, I'm not sure how he pulls that off.I'm not really sure why this novel's called "Face"; the premise is stereotypical horror -- strange hitchhiker is picked up, and he proceeds to make the life of the family hell. Yaddayadda. But this time the rider is so very obviously supernatural that I didn't know what to expect. Very good, very st [...]

    6. William M.

      The beginning is quite gripping and I loved the concept of a family picking up a strange hitchhiker in the middle of a snow storm. It seems that the author started writing with this idea and didn't know where to go with it. Spelling errors aside, Lebbon repeats many of the character's thoughts over and over. Yes, we get the point, you don't need to tell us again! Anyway, having no growth with the characters and a disappointing ending, I cannot recommend this book. Tim Lebbon also seems like he's [...]

    7. Sarah

      It just didn't seem that suspenseful to me; a family having mass hallucinations is somehow less likely to me than a family being stalked by an agent of the devil.I just didn't see the point; I've always known that bad things happen to good people just because. This was well written and I'll try the author again, the plot just didn't particularly speak to me.

    8. Jarrod Scarbrough

      I gave this a try, gave it the ol' 100 page rule, and just couldn't get into either the characters or the story.

    9. TJ

      Disturbing, wordy, and not very interesting. The cover grabbed me, but the book didn't. It's my first book by Lebbon - maybe my last!

    10. Russianwitch

      This book is interesting because the horror sort of creeps up on you. While on the one hand predictable from the start on the other hand it still drags you along.

    11. Belladora Ahumada

      I enjoyed Tim Lebbons Everlasting more. I really like the way Lebbon uses images that transcend easy to the reader. Face had many of those throughout. Very well written.

    12. Jamie

      I was disappointed in this tale by Lebbon. To quote a friend. " It was a great concept but not fully realized," and I could not agree more.

    13. Mandie Lord

      Took me a couple of tries to get thru it, on the whole pretty alright book. Just a littlw hardto get into.
