Review: Interloper by Barry Hoffman
This has been a difficult book for me to review, which is why it has taken me so long to review it. There is no denying that this is a well written story, that engages the reader. Yes it has two very well written strong protagonists, and yes the story has a good Ying and Yang premise. Yet despite of of these plus points, the story itself just didn’t connect with me. To be honest I feel the main reason for this was the fact that the reference’s to sex, and the sex in the story just seemed to get in the way of a good story. I personally have never been a fan of having sex in horror stories, I’ve never seen the point. To me they are just filler, used to bump up the word count, something you can’t do with a 40 page chapbook.
I liked the idea of the story, and in the main I really liked the execution of it, I just think that if the author stayed focused and concentrated on concept of a human guardian angel and her polar opposite the story would have been far better.
