Fear Book Review

I have a very creepy, scary book to share with you today called Fear written by L. Ron Hubbard.
Professor James Lowry didn't believe in spirits, or witches, or demons. Not until a gentle spring evening when his hat disappeared, and suddenly he couldn't remember the last four hours of his life. Now, the quiet university town of Atworthy is changing - slightly at first, then faster and more frighteningly each time he tries to remember.  
Lowry is pursued by a dark, secret evil that is turning his whole world against him while it whispers a warning from the shadows: If you find your hat you'll find your four hours. If you find your four hours then you will die..
My Thoughts:
It took me a little while to get into this story as it starts out sort of slow but it does finally speed up and the creepy crawlies will get you in the end!
It started out pretty mundane about a man trying to get home to his wife and he stops in to see an old friend, who I thought acted very strange and was creepy in his own way also.
But, what really got the whole story going was some strange paper that the Professor had written about his travels that he takes to exotic places and evidently the University that he goes to has a Dean who really does not like him and this latest adventure is just so over the top that he calls the Professor into this office and fires him!
So, this is how the Professor is on his way home in a daze and stops to visit his old friend. Something happens to him while he is there and before he knows it, it's dark outside and he can't remember the last 4 hours that he spent with his friend.
It's actually the beginning of the end, the Professor just doesn't know it yet.
I dare you to read the book and NOT get the heebie jeebies! This would have made a great Halloween type story and I wish I had gotten it read and posted in time, but you will still enjoy the creepy horror of it all!
Happy Reading!
About the Author:
With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 320 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most enduring and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.

Then too, of course, there is all L. Ron Hubbard represents as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology and thus the only major religion born in the 20th century.

While, as such, he presents the culmination of science and spiritual technology as embodied in the religion of Scientology.
