Highway to Hell book. Alex Laybourne draws on vivid, unrelenting catholic visions of a mediaevalist hell as he drives us through a more terrifying, modern version of a Dante Alighieri’s "Inferno". Marcus, Becky, Richard, Helen, Sammy, and Graham. As I read the grim horror, of Laybourne’s dark prose I found myself imagining some inquisitorial preacher spouting a very similar vision of Hell and damnation from his high pulpit, lashing his sinful parish to follow his idea of God through fear for their mortal souls.

What happens when you die? If you have the slightest of indiscretions that you might have done on this earth, it seems as if you go to the darkest of darkest places...

The book starts out with us meeting Marcus, Becky, Richard, Helen, Sammy and Graham--people who have just passed away in whatever form or another. Marcus is a cop who was trying to help Becky and her baby to get away from her pimp, and Richard was a player who just wanted women for sex and nothing else. Helen worked in a salon, Sammy was in an accident with his girlfriend and Graham was just old. Even though they were "good" people, regrets and past mistakes have brought them to a bad place...a place no one would ever go to willingly.

As they are tortured day after day (or what feels like years to them) by their own demons, they realize the errors of their ways, admitting that they had done wrong by others, and even by themselves.

Each of the people are in their own separate Hell's, but somehow get out of their Hell's. Marcus, Becky and Helen meet up in a room, Graham and Sammy end up in another. The first question you ask yourself is, will they ever get out of these rooms? And what is the purpose of their meeting up with each other?

As the story progresses, Marcus, Becky, Helen, Graham and Sammy end up togther. They meet some archangels who send them on a quest.

What is this quest that they need to fulfil? Where is Richard in all of this? Will they redeem themselves, forgive themselves and be forgiven enough to be sent somewhere a little nicer?

Although horror isn't exactly my personal favourite, this one I did enjoy. It was very, very dark at the beginning, mellowing out a bit half-way through it, although the darkness continues/remains. What the individual's demon is brings a new darkness to the story for each person. I can't imagine being in any of their Hells.

Each of the character's story's at the beginning of the book could have been made into individual short stories, an anthology of sorts. Each person had died with their own demons to bear, but somehow manage to find each other. Why? And, how? You'll have to read the book to find out.

There were a lot of spelling/missing words throughout the novel, however it read well. My only beef is that the book didn't end, meaning that there is a follow-up book to this one...meaning, you'll have to wait to see what happens next.

If you like the dark and are not afraid of torture and Hell, then you will enjoy this book. 5 stars!

I didn't find this book slow at all. It was nicely paced, and fun to read.

I can't wait for the next book of this up-and-coming writer.

Alex Laybourne draws on vivid, unrelenting "catholic" visions of a mediaevalist hell as he drives us through a modern, far more terrifying, version of a Dante Alighieri like Hell. As I read the grim horror, of Laybourne's dark prose I found myself imagining some inquisitorial preacher spouting a very similar vision of "Hell and Damnation" from his high pulpit, lashing his sinful parish to follow his idea of God through fear for their mortal souls.
In places I found the horror almost too hard, not that a lover of that genre will find it so. There is just too much of the frightened catholic in me to be able to read such works with the necessary degree of personal detachment. You have been warned, to reflect first on your own psyche.
I am glad I struggled through. Actually I felt strangely compelled to keep going as I grew to understand the cleverly constructed victims of the vision. Eventually I reached a point whereby I started to appreciate Laybourne's mastery, and get a feel for the directions the following books may take. A modern version of the "Divine Comedy", moving on from the inferno, is what I expect. But what Laybourne's intriguing writing will actually show us, I can't wait to see.
This is a technically well written book, though certain passages would have benefitted from another edit. The grammatical flaws that remain take nothing away from the flow of his very readable style. The errors are just a reflection of the fact that like so many of our best modern authors, Laybourne has to write without the degree of support that the publishing industry is only able to provide for a very few chosen "thinkers" and a gang of "celebrity notables". Overall, the final edit is solid, and the art work of the cover is a clever reflection of the book's story.

Highway to Hell is paved with good intentions...Riveting! Although I am not usually a fan of horror I must admit I was hooked! The story was well written; all concepts of Heaven n Hell really made me think. I like books like that. Don't get me wrong I do like fluff pieces every now and then; but there are those like Highway to Hell that require your brain to really work. Bravo!

Where do I begin?

This story reminds me of bumper to bumper traffic. At points, it begins to move and then subsequently stops to introduce yet another character.

While some of the imagery is FANTASTIC - demons, landscapes - the author's attempt at describing things falls short. The use of "like" becomes overly repetitive.

I was more interested in the demons and landscapes and hierarchy of hell then the characters introduced, but perhaps that is because new characters kept being introduced and not given the option to develop.

It was a fantastic attempt that was not fully realized.

I support independent authors and wish this one well, as a sequel is clearly set up.
