Eric can’t remember the recurring dream that keeps waking him in the middle of the night with an overwhelming urge to leave, yet he spends each day feeling as if he desperately needs to be somewhere. With no idea how to cure himself of this odd compulsion, he decides to let it take its course and go for a drive, hoping that once he proves to himself that there is nowhere to go, he can return to his normal life. Instead, he finds himself hurled headlong into a nightmare adventure across a fractur

    Okay, now THIS was interesting! I like the way the story’s written – not that it’s just written clearly, well, and with good grammar, spelling, and punctuation, but that the plot is so unique! I’m reminded of Odd Thomas from Dean Koontz – the uniqueness about the characters is so intresting! Eric seems to be a well-adjusted, healthy, average fellow with no mental or psychological complications – then, the dream. The dream that won’t go away. The dream that keeps… compelling…. him…

    From the development of the initial character, to seeing his family surrounding him, to his sense of humor, I loved everything about this book. And the imaginativeness and warped plot just kept me up way too long into the night reading. I am very, very happy with this book, I love the grisly details of the environment, of what poor Eric deals with, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending! It’s just too fitting. Seriously, if you like something that’ll keep you turning pages but make you smile or shiver with disturbance, RUSHED is just the ticket.

    Take the drive into something fun!

    Yes, I mean that headline. I normally don’t like horror stories, lots of blood and suspense drives me nuts, especially when they seem to be egregious just to satisfy what an author thinks the reading public wants. Well, this story DOES NOT fit that profile. Instead, the horror is softened by funny interactions with his wife, brother, and even a “ghost” on his hated cell phone. A cell phone that by the way can pick up whether he is in our world or another and also send pictures of the monsters the “hero” faces. Now that’s a gadget I want to carry too. And most importantly, this “hero” is clearly a normal human-being, carrying around a cell phone to keep in contact with his wife, and not evincing any more than normality in dealing with the challenges he faces. Makes you really wonder how you would react in a situation like he faces, as his wild trip into the edges of another world seem so vividly like something you might face in the far flung corn fields of michigan or wisconsin. I definitely won’t look at a corn field the same again, but will be looking for more novels from this author. He can certainly write and pull you into a world you never would have expected. And I’d like to find out more about the worlds his brain can send our way.

    So I really loved the start of this book and the plot. It was very exciting. This guy Eric keeps having a dream and feels he needs to be somewhere. But as the story went on I began to get annoyed at how the Author kept saying Eric hates cell phones, didn’t want to use them, etc. And also every time Eric would remember something the author would remind us the he remembered it from his dream. Over and over. But we already know that. Him following his dream and remembering stuff from it is what the story is about. It’s not like we forgot. And it wold be mentioned right after already saying it a few sentences ago. After the 5th time it was getting too annoying. It just went on and on …. he hates cell phones … remembered this from his dream …. he wanted to just get rid of his cell phone ….. this was familiar because it was in his dream …. He used the cell phone through his entire journey so it was useful, but at the end of the book he is STILL talking about how he hates cell phones. Seriously, this lasted all the way to the final chapter. And after having been shown how useful they are.

    The author overly explained everything. For example something will happen … like he’ll see a monster and not know what to do … then right after that the Author will say “He saw the monster back in the field and didn’t know what to do …” I feel like the whole book was just one bit repeat of its self. It dragged on and on because of that and never really went anywhere. Eric would meet random people, or random strange things and that was interesting at first, but after a while I didn’t care. I was just annoyed and wanted something to happen. I can not say I enjoyed this book. It had promise, but did not deliver.

    This book seems like an easy read for young adults who need to have information spoon fed to them because of how it overly explains everything just in case you forgot what the plot was or what the Author had JUST explained two seconds ago. One last thing … I also did not like the conversations between the husband and wife in this book because I always knew what was going to be said. All the lines were so obvious. Like when it looks like rain and somebody says to you “Looks like rain.” You know that’s what they were going to say.
