Customer Reviews of Creep: You're On My Hit List For Calling Me Creep

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creep creeped me out With the amount of bullying that goes on in schools today, Creep carries a very poignant message as to what can happen when an individual's dignity is taken away from them. I found this book bothered me a great deal as I thought about people I've laughed at at school and how they must have felt. I don't think any of them will try to kill me, but I find disturbing the whole premise of creep: that the reader is a character in the book who humiliated the writer and now must die. My only knock is that this book wasn't a few pages longer. But all in all, this is an excellent, thought-provoking story of a twisted individual bent on revenge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad but True When you own your own publishing company, it seems as though anything will be published. Such is the case with this book. I have no problem with twisted, intriguing well written fiction - like Douglas Coupland. This book fails to arouse anything in me but suspicision the author needs to seek some professional help. I was not enticed to read the book beacuse it was so well executed, but to file a case for the mental health authorities. For the sake of curiosity, I wondered if anyone else noticed almost all of the reviews are from 2 addresses? Maggie from Brampton, Marty from Burlington, and John from Toronto ALL share the same e-mail address, which strangley enough belong to the author???(who's name is not any of the mentioned above) Shameless self promotion most likely leads to the author buying his own product so the book stays on the shelf. That's the only way I can see anyone unfortunatly picking this book up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creep made my skin crawl This book is repulsive, yet fascinating and compelling at the same time. I found I was drawn, unwillingly, into the private hell that the Creep narrator exists in, and once there, it was difficult to escape: I got a creepy thrill, as a reader, in being on the Creep's Hit List. This book is a morbid but addictive read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creep very disturbing I had trouble sleeping after reading Creep. The book is very convincing. I felt as though I knew the Creep character and I was drawn into his private hell. It all seemed very real - too real for my liking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creep scares me Be afraid. Be very afraid. If Creep is not a novel but the work of a real psychotic person, no person is safe from him. Creep's hometown, school, etc. are never revealed in this book. In fact, the reader is told that it all takes place in his or her hometown and former high school. I really hope this is just a creepy novel, because if this guy is for real, any of us could be next on his hit list. It's a great book. I just hope it's a work of fiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A thought-provoking book I found the concept of this book to be sheer genius: The reader of the book is one of the book's main characters and is a potential victim of a psycho who is tracking down and killing everyone who ever mocked him. I also enjoyed the spartan economy of language as a highly effective means of building tension. But what impresses me most about this thought-provoking book is its underlying message that the nasty words and actions people cruelly employ against one another can leave deep emotional scars that can be very difficult to heal. That is the Creep's living hell, and it is what compels him to kill to regain his self-esteem. This is an excellent book, but I had trouble sleeping after reading it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A disturbing walk in the dark Like a lot of people who have read this excellent book (going by most of the reviews), I too was very disturbed by its graphic content. What disturbed me most, however, is that the book's main character 'Creep' is clearly a victim of child abuse at the hands of his parents, his father's friend, school staff, fellow students, the list goes on and on. I only hope this book is a novel and not the work of some shattered soul who needs a great deal of help in dealing with a number of traumatic events. All in all, I found this to be a compelling story, disturbing but well told.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sad story, well told I haven't ever felt so tense reading a book. This novel (at least I hope it's a novel and not some sicko's autobiography) had me feeling on edge from start to finish. I felt I was actually there, standing beside 'Creep' as he shot a deer, killed his father's friend, and murdered everyone who mocked him. I couldn't help feeling sorry for 'Creep' although his way of dealing with his troubles is extremely violent and unjustified. I found this to be a very sad story, but it was very well told. I can also identify with him as I too have been victimized by the stupid behaviour of others. I don't plan on killing any of my tormentors, but this book has left me wondering if maybe there's a little bit of 'Creep' in all of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Brilliant Creep is a great psychological thriller that follows the revenge trail of a truly disturbed individual. The author has a gift for building tension and making the storyline very real (I only hope the writer isn't an actual psycho bent on revenge). The reader becomes a central character in this book - an absolutely brilliant concept that engaged me from start to finish and left me wanting more. This is scary stuff that personally gave me goosebumps. I loved Creep. It creeped me outta my freakin' mind!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT deliver I don't hate this book because it creeped me out and made me feel like a murderer was after me, I hate this book because IT DIDN'T CREEP ME OUT. I was duped into buying CREEP by the promising few paragraphs on the book jacket. However, upon reading it I was at no time scared, at no time was my stomach in knots, and at no time did I fail to understand that this was a very poor piece of fiction. I agree with one reviewer that the concept is brilliant, but Creep simply does not deliver. The clichés employed here are more the stuff televised movies of the week than of innovative literature. Any summer camp councellor worth his salt could tell a story more frightening than Creep . The only emotion I felt when reading this book was anger; anger at having spent almost 15 dollars on a book that will be of use to me again only if my toilet roll dispenser run out of Charmin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved to hate it Judging by the other reviews, people either love or hate this controversial book. I happen to love hating Creep. On reading this book, I found myself getting tense and stressed out. It actually made me sweat. My heart beat faster and my stomach was in knots. I had to remind myself this is only a work of fiction - or is it? Maybe the author really is a psycho who is tracking down everyone who treated him badly. The author is certainly skilled at building dramatic tension and making the subject matter uncomfortably real. My one knock against this book is that it's too short. I would have enjoyed being scared out of my wits a little longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed If you've read the above section titled On The Jacket, you've read the opening sequence and most interesting part of the book. I admit that I did find the concept interesting, but in the end the book comes up woefully short. Charging $14.95 for this book (which takes less than 60 minutes to read) is a crime in itself worthy of the same treatment that the author wishes upon his readers. Manor House Publishing should be ashamed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scary, disturbing must-read This intriguing, gripping, first-rate novel skillfully employs a chilling and brilliant concept: Using a first-person narrative, the central character in Creep explains why he needs to kill the reader (to recover his self-esteem after the reader joined others in laughing at him during a past humiliation), thus making the reader a central character in the novel (and who among us hasn't laughed at someone else's misfortune in high school). It soon becomes clear that 'Creep' is a misfit, a loser, who does poorly in school, can't keep a job, can't find a girl and can't find a way to cope with a lifetime of abuse. He's also a psychopath who inflates his self-image while tearing down (and killing) anyone who damages his fragile self-esteem. The spartan descriptive passages and at-times awkward/childlike phrasing add to the sense that you're reading the work of a truly psychotic mind. This novel is very disturbing - but highly readable - I couldn't put it down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disgusting and irresponsible This book should never have been printed. Under the guise of fiction, this poorly written novel, talks about murder and hatred for women and men. It is unreadable. Considering the society we live in, books like these should not be allowed to exist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from a great idea, but horribly executed I feel greatly cheated that there's a publishing company in existence that would allow a novel with so many bad cliches and the writing level of a 10th grade general level english student, to be printed up and distributed for sale. The concept, or what I could pick up from the little amount of information provided on the cover, seemed very interesting: A 2nd person narrative explaining why I deserved to die. This however seems to be the end of the authors creativity. I. Murderman (yeesh, the name alone should have been a clue) seems content with reusing the type of cool jocks picking on the outcast scenarios that never happened in the real world and were pretty lame on the 1980's sitcoms that they originated. I don't think I've ever wanted to call a publisher and yell at them for releasing such a substandard product, but this book made me want to, and I have yet to rule out that possibility
