Forever Will You Suffer was an enjoyable read that I found hard to put down. Fans will keep the lights on all night as Gary Frank writes a scary thriller that leaves the audience constantly looking around to insure no invasions from the grave has occurred.

Forever Will You Suffer was an enjoyable read that I found hard to put down. I really wanted to find out what would happen to Rick and the others, so pages kept turning faster than I thought they would. One of the more enjoyable aspects for me was reading it and hearing Gary's voice in my head, as I had met him back in October.

Forever Will You Suffer book. Mr. Frank is obviously inspired by genre luminaries from Lovecraft to Barker, to the degree that Forever' whiffs of pastiche at times, but it's an impressive first novel and I'll be keeping an eye (or perhaps some more visceral organ) out for Gary's next project.

Unsuspecting Rick Summers had simply gone to the cemetery to visit the graves of his mother and sister, killed in a car accident years earlier. He had the cabbie wait for him. But when he got back into the taxi, he didn’t have the same driver. His new chauffeur was a re-animated corpse. And he was about to take a drive into hell.

He had the cabbie wait for him.

It's amazing what you catch when you read out loud that you missed otherwise.

I'm a writer, musician and DJ. I've several novels published as well as a few short stories. It's amazing what you catch when you read out loud that you missed otherwise.

Media Gallery for Gary Frank Forever Will You Suffer.

Forever Will You Suffer. Forever Will You Suffer plays out like a film, with strong and eerie visuals, some genuine shocks, and a lingering feeling of creepiness. This book was audacious fun, reminding me of Richard Laymon and early Graham Masterton. I strongly recommend it!" - Jonathan Maberry.

Unsuspecting Rick Summers had simply gone to the cemetery to visit the graves of his mother and sister, killed in a car accident years earlier. He had the cabbie wait for him. But when he got back into the taxi, he didn’t have the same driver. His new chauffeur was a re-animated corpse. And he was about to take a drive into hell. The doors to hell open in the house of his ex-lover, Katarina, where he is delivered by his not-so-sweet smelling driver. Rick learns that Katarina is missing and has been recently plagued by a stalker. That’s just the beginning of the bad news. When the house changes right before their unbelieving eyes, taking them somewhen and somewhere else, a horrifying mystery begins to unfold. At its heart is unrequited love. And Rick Summers. It seems that several lifetimes ago, Rick, then Thomas, spurned a woman named Abigail. Not a good idea. Because Abigail’s great at holding a grudge, some of her best friends are demons, and she’s dedicated to keeping a promise she made to Rick long, long ago. “Forever will I remember; forever will you suffer.”

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but it certainly is a page turner! Mr. Frank does a great job with keeping things moving at a very fast pace leaving you wondering why the characters still even want to live after all they have been put through. I love trying to figure out where the author is going with their book, however, I didn't do very well this time. Gary had me guessing and doing it incorrectly which is a wonderful dilemma for me. I really enjoyed the story and felt for the characters as well, again, as not anticipating the ending. Congrats Gary!

I was intrigued by the premise of this book and for the first three-quarters was fairly entertained, but the ending fell apart and I quickly realized that this story would have been better suited as a novella. I also have a problem with horror writers writing in the first person, because you can immediately assume that the protagonist won't die... he can't, because he's telling the story. This isn't always the case, of course, but horror tales in the third person are usually more suspenseful. Horror legends like Richard Laymon and Bentley Little can pull it off successfully, but not many others. First person storytelling is also a sign of a first-time writer, as is the case here.

My other criticism is the heavy use of dialogue pushing the story instead of characters' actions, which are always more interesting. I use the phrase "show, don't tell" to let the reader figure out things on their own in order to make the experience more engaging. That being said, I'm curious to read Gary Frank's next work and see the growth of his writing and storytelling skills.

This book has a promising start. Rick Summers, the protagonist of this effort from Frank, has just finished visiting the cemetery to mourn his mom and sister. He gets into a cab, and immediately finds that his driver has been replaced by a corpse. A good start, but it's soon downhill from there.

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I will talk about what hurts this book. Most noticably, the dialogue throughout is stilted and mind-numbing. The characters don't seem capable of any discussion that doesn't focus on flirting, and their deepest statements sound like something a 7th-grader might come up with. Even their thoughts are boring, especially those of Rick, who seems to spend most of his time thinking about how much he'd like to get every female character in this novel into the sack. When he's not concentrating on bedding each woman, or thinking about lesbian action, he turns his mind to other important pursuits like drinking. At points, the book seems like some young man's fantasy life - getting drunk and having sex with hot women.

As for the story, there are a couple of problems. The first is that much of it is nonsensible. There are some great ideas, but the author doesn't manage to tie them well together. Added to that is the pacing, which is erratic. Too much time is spent on certain parts, which makes it plodding, while interesting scenes are really glossed over. Again, there are the makings of an interesting story, but they're lost in the clutter.

This one may have been saved had the hero been someone with whom we could sympathize, but he's not. Really, I couldn't have cared less by book's end about his fate. This isn't the worst book I've read, but it's not something I would recommend.

Forever Will You Suffer was an enjoyable read that I found hard to put down. I really wanted to find out what would happen to Rick and the others, so pages kept turning faster than I thought they would. One of the more enjoyable aspects for me was reading it and hearing Gary's voice in my head, as I had met him back in October. I've read enough horror to know what I like, and I found that I like Gary's voice. I felt pulled into the story, and though some may have voiced opinion of bad dialogue, pacing, whatever, I wasn't dissatisfied in the least. Was this PEN/Faulkner award material? No. Was it written to win that prize? I'm certain it wasn't (although I'm sure the author wouldn't mind a Stoker for first novel). This was written to entertain an audience that appreciates horror novels. I would think that fans of the late Richard Laymon would appreciate this work. And I also think that Gary will continue to grow and improve as a writer. I very much look forward to his next book.

The books jumps right into the action with the main character, Rick, being kidnapped by a corpse. The first part of the book is a bit slow and has suffers from an identity crisis. It doesn't know if it wants to create the horror through gore, supernatural or psychological means and tries to be all three. There were aspects of the book that I wish were elaborated on, especially some of the back stories when the house jumped back in time.

There are aspects of the dialogue that I felt didn't add anything to the story, notably the cursing that punctuates the horror scenes.

About 35% through the book it starts to pick up and find its voice. The pacing gets quicker and it is a more enjoyable read. The ending is different from other horror novels that I have read, almost "Twilight Zonish" and certainly in keeping with the story laid out before us.

For a first time novel, author Gary Frank has done well. The book does have its ups and downs in writing style, but it was definitely an enjoyable read and worth the time.
