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.

20 Year EMS Medic praises Broken People in book review on Amazon

Posted in Broken People amazon, broken people reviews, Broken People Scott Hildreth, Broken People suicide, BULIMIA, CODEPENDENCY, coming of age, coming of age novel, eating disorders, family suicide, family values, goodreads 5 star review, NA fiction, Scott D Hildreth Broken People, Scott Hildreth Broken People, self help, suicidal teens, SUICIDE, suicide self-help, suicide survivor, suicide teens with tags , , , , , , , on July 16, 2013 by scottdhildreth

As a person who lost my 16 year old daughter, an EMS medic for over 20 years and have seen the tragedies that happen to children (including suicide even ran calls on 5 friends who decided to cash in their chips), taught K-12 and actually took the time to listen to the kids and now teach at a college level.

  I think this book should be a must read for parents of kids 12 and older who are truly blind or indifferent in today’s society to what is going on with their kids.  It would also benefit the teens out there who also think everything is OK…  The key is communication and not through email, txt messaging and fancy gadgets, I’m talking face to face!!!
We are all broken people in some way or another, some worse than others and they all have a story.  If people would just take time to really listen, even if it is just finding that one person like FAT KID, but someone to listen!!!!!
Read the Book & Open Your Eyes (Ears) 🙂
(Review by HUGZ on Amazon.com)

***************

First, and foremost, HUGZ, I am sorry for your pain, your losses, and the loss of your daughter. I am proud and grateful that this book, if even for a few hours, was able to provide you with some comfort. Possibly this book will prevent others from feeling the pain that you have felt.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is exactly why I wrote this book. I wanted to write something carefully, thoughtfully, and real. Something that all could relate to that was raw…Something that made teens, young adults, new adults, and parents just stop. Stop and actually feel, feel what was going on in the book. Feel through the colorfully depicted characters what was going on as if it were going on in their living room, in their school, in their frozen yogurt shop. I wanted them to stop half-way through the book, and look around the room, wondering where the kids were. Wondering what they were doing. What they have been doing. To rekindle the love that has been lost over the years between children and their parents.

The reviews for this book, to date, speak volumes about what the combined pages offer. What this book offers is real, it’s in your face, and it’s a slap of the hand that has raised a generation of children that just don’t quite get the attention and love that they oh-so-deserve.

This book provides the emotional rush of witnessing a bank robbery, watching someone give birth, seeing a fatal car crash, and having an out of body spiritual experience…all rolled into one book.

It’s truly something you must experience. The reviews are accurate. The reviews are real. Try it for yourself. If it can provide you with what it has provided others, you’re reading the wrong book…if it isn’t Broken People.

Broken People, by Scott Hildreth received Bhavya Kaushik’s highest review, 5 stars. To date, he has placed this high of a review on one book. Only one, until today. Broken People brought him to his knees. and at his own admittance, made him cry several times, and then built him back up.

A quote from his review:

The author is a brilliant storyteller, a wordsmith, and the way with which he has interwoven these people together is absolutely above my comprehension. I was able to relate with almost each and every character, but it was one specific character which reflected me entirely and I cried while reading all of its narration.

It is written with utmost thoughtfulness and will leave a deep impression on your mind after a read, because of its depth. It has some hauntingly beautiful descriptions and metaphors, and is filled with breathtaking quotes. There are numerous quotes in this book which broke my heart and created a space for them inside of my soul, but this one quote stood out for me from the entire text –

“I wondered what was behind the suicide. There is always a reason, something, an event that takes them over the edge, making the pain unbearable. Sometimes it may be a combination of items that the person just can’t comprehend living with, but it’s always one thing that takes them over the edge. It’s not that they actually want to die. Generally, they just want the pain to stop.”

Get your copy today, at amazon for $3.99. As Bhavya states, this book will change your life.
