Reply Have you ever had one of those dreams where you re trying to run as fast as you can, but your legs feel like they re propelling themselves through wet, dense mud Now, imagine that for every 10 minutes you jog through this sludge, you re allowed 8 seconds to run at a pace of a 4 minute mile, before having your feet once again encased in cement bricks You now have some semblance of my excruciating experience reading this dreadful, heinous, poorly written dribble.The author needs to take a lesson on reigning in the exposition we get it, the main character s life is terribly boring Stop assuming your audience is comprised of dim witted imbeciles who can t grasp the doldrums of the protagonist s mediocre job, and obnoxious family after 30 pages Oh, wait, let s quickly punctuate the story s misery with a quick and brutal killing, and then go immediately back into 30 pages of boring, repetitive vomit.Spare yourself the agony of reading this and just jam a rusted fork into your eye socket. Reply The advent of internet brought a few changes to the world Okay, it changed the world immensely if not completely So I wonder if self published writers like David Moody would have otherwise achieved such recognition in such a comparatively short time if not for the exposure gained through the internet Maybe he might have eventually got his books published or maybe he might have been just another author destined for oblivion and failure While latter is not the case with him and I am glad for that , but if you are going to read Moody for the first time and that book happens to be much sensationalized and soon to be a major motion picture, Hater, you might think that that might exactly be the case At least I thought that way.Hater starts off with the first attack of the Hater itself and then introduces us to the protagonist Danny McCoyne who is stuck in a dead end job which pays peanuts also the boss is very annoying while his story on the family front is or less the same A shitty apartment in an unnamed town in a backward neighborhood A bickering wife Liz and three very annoying children A father in law who openly despises him.So, what is the rest of the story, you ask That s it The above paragraph just repeats itself again and again until you hate the book itself and then after than halfway through, the story advances somewhat But I felt that it was too late to salvage the plot.The most annoying thing is, the ambiguity of the plot is not cleared even at the end I guess you have to read the rest of the series for that.When I heard that Guillermo del Toro was going to produce a motion picture based on this book, I knew I was going to read it before the movie came out You see, Pan s Labyrinth is one of my favorite movies, so that stirred my interest for reading this work Guillermo del Toro still might make an awesome movie out of this, but I won t recommend reading Hater if it is your first David Moody book This was my first encounter with his work, but in retrospect I think I should have started reading David Moody with Autumn instead of this.Who knows, things might have worked out differently. Reply I don t want to say anything about this book because it will probably give away something if I do I think that Alfonso should read it, because I m a little worried that he might not have a contingency plan in place for this scenario Maybe people of the Haters group should too, just because it has some interesting ideas on hate If this is made into a movie properly it could be totally fucking amazing If it s not then it will be stupid Hollywood shit A nice book to read on Valentines Day. Reply 4.5It s difficult for me to explain this book without giving away something vital. Reply 4.5 StarsThis was my second read of Hater I thought that I needed to reread it before moving on to book number two I have recently read the Autumn series and loved it, solidifying me as a fan of David Moody This return to the world of Daniel McCoyne and that of the haters was better the second time around REMAIN CALM DO NOT PANIC TAKE SHELTER WAIT FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTION THE SITUATION IS UNDER CONTROL Moody s Autumn series worked by creating a world filled with characters like you and me There were no superheroes in that one, and many were very likable In this series the Hater series, we have a much tighter focus that centers around one man Dan McCoyne From the backstory we get on him, he comes across as a whiner of a man, who appears to detest his children Many of the scenes with his children made me glad that I don t have any of my own Even though I wanted to see what happened to Dan next, I neither liked nor disliked him This extremely short and fast paced story works by providing a spin on the post apocalypse genre It plays out like almost all zombie books do, however, there are no undead here The world, for some unexplained reason, is threatened to come to an end by Extreme violence and killing What would happen if the people that you love, your friends, your family, all of a sudden just wanted to kill you Jesus Christ I stare deep into the old man s eyes and I m frozen to the spot with fear Can this be the same man He glares back at me with cold, steely eyes filled with an in explicable hate and disgust I can sense his revulsion of me coming off him like stench and I know that for some inexplicable the undeniable reason he wants me dead He wants to destroy me My legs become weak with nerves as I realize that the hate has finally arrived in my home The structure of this novel is a real win I loved, that between chapters we got short snippets of cool stories of violence, rage and death Moody, like most post apocalyptic authors, doesn t give us a whole lot of reasons why the sudden change occurred and our world is coming to an end Sure, they mentioned that there is an apparent genetic difference that for some reason now separates us from them, the haters, but they never really figured out why This type of end of the world scenario has a real feel to it, and it s scary as can be.I am a big fan of David Moody and recommend him to all lovers of the horror genre, and the zombie genre He is an author not to be missed. Reply Hater is an interesting novel with a unique premise I enjoyed it and felt a great deal of remorse for Danny and the life that he was forced to have to struggle through day after day I felt that David Moody did a superb job of creating a cavalcade of characters that were realistically ordinary and relatable The book moves along at a very fast pace and contains many thrilling sequences throughout The novel is essentially a character study of Danny and his gradually declining lifestyle The only negative about the book is the minuscule amount of explanation given as to the origin of the hater population Hopefully the other novels will explain this phenomenon in depth Overall, Hater is a relentless, fast paced, and enjoyable read Reply The librarian at work recommended this, and Guillermo del Toro gave it praise on the cover, so I m giving it a go.Just finished it Call me a Hater, but I hated it.Okay, so it s supposed to be a creative retelling of the old zombie story, right By the way, SPOILER ALERTdon t read any if you don t want to read spoilersSo imagine a zombie story told from the point of view of one of the zombies Hmm That could be interesting, kind of like classic fairy tales told from an alternate POV That idea has promise But here s my problem with Hater I don t like the main character I never like him Before he changes, or after he changes He s repugnant I understand the concept of an anti hero, but even anti heroes have something likable about them Danny has a crappy job and he feels burdened and worn out by family life And because it s told from his POV, we get the message loud and clear how much he hates his life, hates his father in law, hates his boss, hates his kids, hates hates hates hates hates And then he becomes a Hater He changes for some unknown reason and becomes a killing machine Kill the non haters before they get you, even if that includes your own family Am I supposed to like him now It s basically gore porn I don t mind violence in movies or books, but the violence in this book seems to exist for no of a deeper reason than because the author thinks it s cool And apparently others do too Guillermo del Toro bought the film rights Really Del Toro says on the jacket that it s a cautionary tale Hmm About 30 percent of the population changes into killing machines who kill for reasons of self manifested self preservation They become paranoid psychotics, intent on wiping out the others that are different from them I don t need a cautionary tale for man s ability to do this I already have a big one It was called World War II But okay, I ll cut Del Toro some slack He bought the film rights He s trying to sell books Whatever.The concept I m still cool with Telling the zombie story from the zombie POV And making the zombie ness to be a mysterious transformation where you feel like you have to kill others to protect yourself, because you feel that they ll kill you even though, except for the soldiers, the non Haters don t generally make the first move or provoke the violence okay, that could be interesting.ButMaybe it s because I m a devoted family man Any time Danny told his kids to shut up, or bemoaned how much they bugged him, or how much his wife nagged him, or how annoying his father in law was, I lost and empathy for this guy He was a complainer A weakling He s bad with relationships, to say the least If I m asked to identify with this guy and by point of him being the main character, I am tacitly asked to identify with this guy there s got to be something I can relate to Yes, he felt a little bit of warmth towards his youngest child The scene where they fell asleep together was sweet But too soon, it turns into zombie love, where he yearns for his daughter because she too has changed into a killing machine So much for any chance of identification with this dolt.I m sorry, Mr Moody, but you ve written a nasty little book, and not even that well hasn t anyone ever told you that overuse of adverbs makes for weak writing And I nearly threw up in my mouth when I read the line This is what I was born to do You ve got to be kidding me I don t care about Danny, so I don t care about his plight or the war that the ending so dramatically sets up for the sequels I d rather drink a glass shard smoothie than read a sequel to this book. Reply It s US versus THEM with no idea whose side you re one until it s too late What a twisted world I was completely captivated by this story It felt very similar to a zombie book without the walking undead if that makes any sense No Well if you read it and I suggest you do then it will We follow one man, Danny, who is discontented with his job, his family situation and life in general There were times at the beginning of the novel when he was frustrated with kids pulling him every which direction but sane that I felt for him, I really did But in all honesty Danny s life wasn t all that bad and I found myself feeling frustrated with him for being so disgruntled Panic spreads throughout his town when random people begin brutally killing for no apparent reason Eventually these people are given the name Haters and they are growing in number Danny and his family are forced to stay in, locking themselves in their home and venturing out only for necessities The explanation for the Haters left me disappointed I wanted It felt like this aspect of the story wasn t nearly developed enough Had there been attention placed on the reason it could ve been a truly terrifying tale After writing my review I learned that this is the first book in a trilogy The 2nd book is Dog Blood and will be out this month Knowing there are going to be books makes the incomplete reasoning behind the Haters understandable I can t wait to read the next book. Reply Wow This one hit on all cylinders for me I just finished it and I started it the other day, but I finished reading it the second sitting I have read a little of the author s zombie books, called Autumn I believe What you have here is an epidemic of Hate Normal people begin to turn into murderous killers, taking other s lives for no reason other than the fell they need to After they do it it seems they are afraid and don t understand why they did it As and people turn they tend to gather together and the remorse is replaced by solidarity The government steps in and finally they bring arms to bear against these maniacs, whom the media has dubbed Haters This story is about Danny McCoyne and his wife and kids, an irritating Father In Law and the events that unfold around their world This takes place in the UK and it is a straight up page turner The descent into madness that happens around this seemingly normal family is chaotic and strange, and the author gives the feelings and situations that happen around this family life and meaning, fear and confusion The reader is dragged along through this whirlwind of unknowable events until Danny himself is affected and the partial truth of what is going on appears like a shotgun blast This was so good I finished it and immediately got on and ordered the second book It s just that good Read this now, because you have to LOLDanny Reply Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
