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.

The reviews continue to pour in, 5 star reviews. Yesterday, and award winning author added to the list. His review? One of only two in his career that he awarded the highest review to, Broken People, by Scott Hildreth.

Read the newest reviews on Amazon, and then ask yourself, if this book truly has the capacity to open your mind, and change the way you view life, why aren’t you making it your next read???

Broken People received three more 5 star reviews on Amazon today. The people reviewing this book continue to repeat the same type(s) of things….”this book changed my life….changes my viewpoints..”

  • I will have to say, it has been too long since I have read something and it had enough substance to keep me coming back to read more. It not only made me re-evaluate my life but it made me look at people in a whole new perspective. In addition I look at where my life is now in a whole new perspective. It seemed daunting, but now, it doesn’t seem really that bad. But this is probably my kick-start on my life. I just cannot express how moved I am. I have so many spoilers to speak of it is unbearable. This book was uplifting, encouraging and helped me have a better understanding of who I am and what I really can do with my life and for my daughter. I could already feel myself appreciating who I have in my life as I was reading this book.
    I would love to say more but if I do I may ruin it for you. Now go give your life a kick-start and read this.

    Thank you Scott for the most eye opening read I have yet to come across. (Thetasteofink260, on Amazon)
  • This book is a must read! Broken People is the most thought provoking book I have ever read. It has opened my eyes to a new perspective on life. It covers many important subjects that everyone faces in their lives. I will be passing this book on to many of my friends and family! Thank you Scott!!!  (Andrea on Amazon)
  • You ever read something that really…REALLY makes you think about life, your actions, your reactions, your personal feelings, your view of others??  Oh? No? There have been a few for me….and this is one of them. This story blew me away. I mean….really toyed with my emotions, my thinking, and honestly made my heart hurt a bit.
    5 people….5 broken people…..5 beautifully broken stories…Infinite messages….Many many emotions.  A heart wrenching story of broken souls finding broken souls. Broken souls mending broken souls.  Broken souls saving broken souls.
    Life ain’t always beautiful…..Scott Hildreth’s debut definitely forces us as readers to face that fact and see the ugliness, the darker side of life’s dirty little secrets. He shows us that we are not alone in our fears, our insecurities…in a very raw and real way. You might not think of yourself broken, but everyone…in their own way…is somehow broken….if only a little bit.
    I found myself relating to parts of this story’s messages. This book forced me to take a look at my scars and my fears. Forced me to consider others….and their scars. I am broken in my own ways….
    Hildreth introduces us to “The Fat Kid”……He pads himself, uses vulgar language, acts like a snarky jerk at times….. all to shut people out. Why would someone want to get to know an obese, vulgar, insensitive human being? It’s his defense against life….against failure….against getting close….against hurt.
    He takes us on his journey….and gives us his broken and scattered puzzle pieces. Although there are multiple points of view, for me the “Fat Kid” is the focal point of the story.  This is his life. This is his brilliant story of his road to redemption and forgiveness. This is him overcoming his incident.
    My heart bled a little for each character. My compassion for their situation and their heart ache grew with each page I turned. Hildreth most definitely has an amazing sense of verbal prowess and an uncanny ability to tell each character’s heart breaking story in a brilliant light.
    As a parent, this book was some what of a self-help inspirational piece of art. Although I am not a parent to teen….yet…God forbid my child have to go thru any of the pain depicted or face any of the same issues. I can’t 100% safe guard my child from all the pain or troubles in life, but I can damn well make sure that I am there every step of the way, helping walk them thru it when I can and holding their hand…..regardless is the situation. Full fledged support and  understanding.
    I would without any reservations recommend everyone to read this amazing story. Without a doubt….this will be a life changing book for many.

Broken People is, simply stated, that ONE book that has the capacity to change the way you view life. If you are going to read a book, make the next one you read Broken People, by Scott Hildreth. It delivers.

 

 

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”.
