BROKEN PEOPLE
I had a girlfriend, at 21, commit suicide while I was away. I have lived with that guilt forever. Several friends and family members have done the same thing. Throughout my life, I have met, talked to, and attempted to assist anyone that appeared to be broken, as long as they were willing to help themselves. I wrote this book to show how people feel. To allow the reader to feel, truly feel and associate with the characters. This is a book of feelings. Characters are depressed, angry, sad, elated, full of fear, confused, frustrated, hysterical, jealous, and lonely.

I stopped drinking a few decades ago. In my drinking, and in my not, I have found many other broken people. I frequent coffee houses the way that most everyone else frequents a bar. In these places, I meet more broken people. My exposure to these people made me want to write this book.

This book is fiction. It is a made-up story of five people. Five people that have different problems, different lies, and different issues. It’s a story about losing. Winning. And, ultimately, finding yourself. It is told through the voices of all five people. One of these people, the main character, is an overbearing asshole. He is vulgar, he is obese, and he is always talking thrash to whoever he encounters. He hates people. But he loves to help people that he wants to. He meets people. He encounters a lot of people he doesn’t help. But he encounters these people, and their lives are changed. His life and his mind, throughout this process, changes as well.

A suicidal girl is one. She is bulimic.

Another is somewhat of an intelligent dreamer. She is the heroine in the book.

A homosexual son of a former Marine war veteran. He can’t tell his dad he is gay.

And, the romantic. He comes from a home without a father. He has issues of his own, but, overall, he’s a great guy.

The reviews of this book are remarkable. Remarkable. Everyone agrees, this is a book that you must read. You must. It will, without a doubt, be one of the best reads you ever had. Additionally, it will have a greater, a deeper, and a longer lasting effect than anything else you’ve read or seen.

This is New Adult fiction like no other. If there was a book that you knew, literally knew…going into reading it, that it would make you cry, make you think, and make you reflect on yourself as a whole, would you read it? If this book had the most power of any other book that you have ever read. Any. If the book was grand enough to make you sit back and say, “Wow. I think I need to read that again…” and you immediately started over, would you read it?

Broken People, by Scott Hildreth is that book. You will, without a doubt see yourself in this book, in at least one of the characters, you will. It is an amazing piece, and has an amazing story to tell.

Read this book. You will not be anything but amazed.

Broken People, by Scott Hildreth continues to get reviews that come in, at the rate of a few a day. They are all (5) star, except 3. Total, there are 32 five star reviews, and 3 (4) star.

Yesterdays review by 1Booklover was great. 5 stars. She stated that she was afraid that she couldn’t even do the book justice in her review. She stated that it was a “Must read” for parents and teens alike.

A must read. That, of course, means that it is their recommendation that you “must” read it.

This book was written with the intent of any age (above 14)  being able to read it and have it effect them. It actually crawls within you, and flows through your veins like an infection. The characters are all real, raw, and full of life. The book is written from the perspective of the five characters, individually, in first person. The story unfolds, and the each character’s life is somehow tied to the other. In the end, they are all tied together.

This book is similar to Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Be an adult, or be a teen…or anything in between, you will leave this book a different person. A richer person. It will, at minimum, leave you thinking about who you are, and what got you to this point in life. Additionally, it will have you second guessing what it is that you intend to do with the rest of your life.

If you are a parent of a teenagers, or have children in high school, you must read this book. You must. It will change the way you look at them. When you’re done, have them read it.

You will be forever grateful you did.

From time to time, a book comes along, and makes you stop. It makes you stop and second guess who you are, what you’re doing in life, with life, and for the ones you love. This is that book. Through colorfully painted characters, “Broken People” forces the reader to reflect on self. There will be a broken part of you in one (or all) of these characters, guaranteed. This is one powerful read. It will truly leave you sitting and wondering about life when you complete it.

A woman in Texas messaged me yesterday when she completed it. She said she was going to immediately read it AGAIN. She said, when asked, that this book was remarkable, and certainly a treasure. A masterpiece. Get a copy today, $3.99 at Amazon. If you read, you should be reading this book.

Broken People, 20 Amazon Five Star Reviews

Posted in Broken People, Broken People Scott Hildreth, BULIMIA, CODEPENDENCY, coming of age, divorce, Scott D Hildreth Broken People with tags , , , on July 11, 2013 by scottdhildreth

So, I received my first review of the book on Goodreads today. 5 stars. Currently, on Amazon, (20) 5 stars, one 4 star. Strangely enough, the one 4 star is prorbably one of my best reviews, based on content.

This book is so much more than a suicide book, that’s merely just a portion of what ground this book covers. I actually wrote it with the intent of it being a self-help book.

A Texas reader emailed me today after completion, and said it was so powerful, she was reading it again…..as soon as she completed it.

Now that’s a good book. $3.99, see what the hype is about. Try it now, before the price goes up…..

Broken People, by Scott Hildreth a coming of age/suicide novel

This book isn’t merely a suicide book. It is actually, when the book is finished, a book that will make you feel good.

Really good.

The main protagonist, Fat Kid, is a very intriguing self-proclaimed therapist who devotes his life to help people that have difficulties helping themselves, people he considers to be ‘broken’. Intentionally becoming obese in an effort to shield himself from the approach of outsiders wanting to better understand him, The Fat Kid hides behind his thick outer self. With an overbearing obnoxious attitude, he allows few people to enter his otherwise private life (he won’t even reveal his name). Most of the people that he encounters come from his internet blog, and pose no real threat to him or to his odd lifestyle.

When he encounters a bulimic teenage girl through his internet blog who threatens to commit suicide, he begins to reflect on parts of his life that he has spent years repressing. He continues to assist her, and many other ‘Broken People’ through his blog. When he meets an extremely independent girl who challenges him, his way of living, and his way of viewing life, he reluctantly listens. In doing so, he ponders his past mistakes, his future, and ultimately he finds his true self.

 

The Fat Kid travels from person to person through his blog, and as he does, he reflects on his childhood, being an adult, suicide, depression, parenting, family, being irresponsible, and being responsible.

I know this novel is remarkable. It is a powerful read. There are moments of hilarity, and a few scenes that will make even the toughest readers cry. Again, I truly believe the first person to merely review this work will commit to it. The market for this particular novel is vast. I have provided one hundred printed manuscripts to persons varying in age from 17-74, and the responses were almost all the same, “I laughed, I cried, and I am now questioning my life…wow, that was amazing, can I keep the manuscript ?” In fact, I placed my email address in the front of the ebook (posted on Amazon’s site last week), and more than one Amazon reader has emailed me in the week that it has been released, and said they felt the book was a “masterpiece”.
