Produktbeschreibungen

When Roland Doyle wakes up in an unfamiliar motel room with a strange man’s wallet in his pocket and a woman’s dead body in the bathroom, he fears the worst…and that’s before he finds the vial of pills labeled "take one every 4 hrs or else." Or else what? Ten years ago, Dr. Sebastian Briggs’s clinical drug trial for a cutting-edge fear-response drug went horribly wrong — or did it? It’s true that one trial participant died and five others were left with no memory of what happened to them. But now several interested parties, including a major pharmaceutical company and an ambitious U.S. senator, are willing to back Briggs’s continued research. All he has to do is recall his five surviving "volunteers," whose addiction to a mysterious drug has left them largely at his disposal. They will do anything necessary to keep the pills coming and to stave off the creeping phobias, intense sexual impulses, and all-consuming madness that lurk on the edges of their minds. It’s easy enough for the good doctor to lure the survivors back to the remote Monkey House, where the original trials took place. But when the pills finally run out…that’s when the real show begins.

Buchrezensionen laden vielfach zu Zusammenfassungen des Inhalts ein, darauf möchte ich, um das Lesevergnügen anderer nicht zu schmälern, verzichten. Für mich persönlich reichts als Lückenfüller, besondere Spannung kam leider bei mir nicht auf.

HASH(0x9a827540) von 5 Sternen Nicholson Strikes Again 29. März 2011
Von Bookhound - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In his latest offering, author Scott Nicholson yet again moves into new territory by creating a story full of action, mystery, thrills, and paranoia. Focused on a group of people who volunteered for an experimental-drug trial ten years ago, this story will have you flipping the pages to keep up with the fast-paced action all the way until the end. As the memories of the past come back with ever-increasing intensity, the survivors try harder to forget. This story had me looking over my shoulder at times. Don't miss out on this treat from Nicholson.

HASH(0x9acb178c) von 5 Sternen Comic Book That's Missing the Artwork 12. März 2012
Von TJ Mccarthy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Start with a group of the usual conservative suspects - the politician, the fundamentalist, the drug rep - and have them trying to market a dangerous drug without a lot of messy FDA oversight. Of course, they have no morals, so their mad scientist and his trusty psychopathic hired gun are free to use and abuse a group of test subjects.

The characters were all rolled out of central casting, then pumped up into obscene caricatures that are so over-the-top as to be laughable. On a believability scale, they're right up there with the Penguin and Joker from the old DC comics. You also have silly things popping up, like a Secret Service agent acting as limo driver for a Senator.

To make things worse, we spend most of the book stuck firmly in the minds of the subjects while they're dosed up on drugs, wading with them through a sewer of strange and abusive behaviour. It gets repetitive, and goes past annoying well into obnoxious.

Had this been done tongue-in-cheek, it could have been a wickedly hilarious send-up. Sort of a "Dr. Strangelove Does Big Pharma". But there's not a speck of wit or humour; it's all deadly serious, a dire warning written as a shocking exposé. If you are addicted to conspiracy theory books, and don't mind the amateur writing, you can give this a try. Otherwise, avoid at all costs.

HASH(0x9acb3bc4) von 5 Sternen Amazing Versatility in this new Nicholson offering... 1. April 2011
Von Sunluvr - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Scott Nicholson could never be accused of cookie cutter stories but he's really gone in a different direction with this thrilling story about scientific research going on at Research Triangle Park. The only similarity to his previous books is sticking to his familiar territory of the mountains of North Carolina. I was hooked on this book from page one and couldn't put it down until the end. After reading this I don't think I will ever be volunteering for a drug trial!

HASH(0x9aa92f90) von 5 Sternen Sure glad I didn't have to pay for this shallow travesty 29. April 2012
Von Rabbi Yonassan Gershom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I almost NEVER give a one-star review, but this book really deserves it. As a fan of medical thrillers, I was really looking forward to a good read. Or maybe even just an average mediocre read... What I got was a boring, confused jumble of stereotyped characters who are never developed beyond empty cliches.

Not to mention a smorgasbord of badly mixed metaphors: "fingers pale and slick as maggots," "his arm was like a roll of sodden newspapers," "the slogans swam together like the eels in his gut," "a steroid-bloated neck that made his head look like a ferret-covered bucket of rocks." (What does that even mean? Have you ever seen a bucket of rocks covered with ferrets? Not in this universe.) All the book lacked was "a dark and stormy night" -- which is almost there anyway on the first page, where "the rain fell like bullets" and "the air smelled of burnt motor oil" (how can that be if it is pouring rain? Any molecules of smoke in the air would be beaten into the gutters already...)

The idea for the book had some promise, and in the hands of another writer, might have been a good thriller. The premise: Five people who had volunteered for a questionable medical experiment years ago are now finding themselves remembering some really bad things that happened back then -- and will go insane if they don't continue taking the drug that suppresses those memories. The problem is, Nicholson never really developes these characters enough for me to get interested in them or their fates. We don't learn much about these five people besides being stock characters we've seen a hundred times before in grade B horror films. Plus, he uses EIGHT point-of-view characters, which is very confusing to follow. Half the time it wasn't clear who was speaking, given that some of them didn't know themselves who they really were or where they were at.

And we don't learn much about the science behind this experiment, either. At one point, a character actually says "Don't go all Michael Crichton on me," which is nothing but a cheap punt to avoid explaining anything scientific in detail. (Frankly, I LIKE Michael Crichton's explanations. At the very least, they help make sense of the plot. And are reasonably accurate scientifically.) Then again, if this author really thinks you can smell smoke in a heavy rain (as I noted above), his knowledge of science is not all that great to begin with. Judging from his previous titles, he is way out of his usual genre on this one, which may well be the problem.

Finally, the ending is a confusing mess that takes place in an old factory where the secret lab is hidden -- and where lots of old rusty tools and machinery are left lying around, serving no real purpose except to be handy for improvised weapons. In short, if you want to torture yourself with bad writing, get this from the library. But don't waste your good money on buying it.

HASH(0x9ab83984) von 5 Sternen Creepy and thought-provoking. 12. August 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small...Scott Nicholson, the creative guy behind Haunted Computer Books and friend to book bloggers all over the place, brings something different to the table with Liquid Fear, the story of a decade-old pharmaceutical trial and the secret follow up that's been planned for the original participants.

The story begins by introducing members of the fated pharmaceutical trial and briefly describing where they are now. The one thing they all had in common was that they all thought that the trial was behind them and that they were free to live their lives uninterrupted. This would have been the best thing, as the trial in question was unethical to say the least, and while they may have all volunteered for the trial, they didn't volunteer for the extreme measures that Dr. Briggs, the mastermind behind it all, had in store for them in the name of his version of science.

The narration in this story isn't linear in the sense that one person does all the narrating and we find out what we find out as the narrator learns it. Nor is there an omnipotent narrator that knows everything and dispenses wisdom as it becomes important to the story. Instead, we see what's happening from a variety of perspectives, not only of the trial participants, but also from other outside players who are brought in to carry out Dr. Briggs's plan. As a result, we have to keep all the details straight, and piece together later which ones are important to the master plan. It makes for engaging reading.

The story spirals and spirals until all the characters are thrust together and have to claw their way back from a chemical induced wasteland of fear and debauchery, if they can. The book held my interest and I really wanted to know how all the facts and twisted narrative threads would be woven together at the end.

This was my first book by Scott Nicholson but I hope it isn't my last. This story was creepy and thought-provoking and will definitely make you take a moment and consider the impact that drugs can truly have.
