Some of Your Blood book.

Some of Your Blood book. Named one of the Top 40 Horror Books of All Time by the Horror. Theodore Sturgeon’s 1961 psychological thriller reminds me of the films Birdy (Alan Parker 1984) and Vampire’s Kiss (both featuring Nicholas Cage) because of the subject matter; but this never goes over the top and Sturgeon’s great ability to produce an understated and minimalistic page-turner is in rare form.

THIS is a novel. Yes, it's a short novel- but this is what a novel reads like, feels like and smells like (even on the kindle). This is the way novelists use language; playfully, clearly and with an easy love for words. This is the way stories are woven and characters revealed. This is the way a writer establishes rapport with h/er audience.

Reading a book this engaging is the second most fun you can have in bed (or out).
So put down the Hoover, stop contemplating the Cline and drop the Flynn.
Go fishing instead.

Uuuuhhh...Amazon notes I bought the audio companion. I did, but chose to read the story.

Well this was creepy. Known more for Science Fiction and Fantasy, Sturgeon really outdid himself with this slim Horror/Mystery piece. It’s the story of a young soldier who was raised in an abusive backwater family, with little education and his disturbing way of looking at life. After he (“George Smith”) is locked up for hitting a superior officer, George is placed under observation by army psychiatrists. Much of the story is told through letters/messages between the doctors, and through a story George is asked to write, the story of his life. Very dark, this shorty was spooky I was hooked, especially by the finale. Really fine novella.
grand star
I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to. It kind of takes a unique approach in telling a horror Story and really surprised me in a very positive way. I came across it probably like many people through Stephen King's "Danse Macabre" and I didn't have any kind of knowledge about the book, the plot, the characters, or the story beforehand, at all. I'm really glad I chose this book to read on a whim. It probably is actually one of my favorite books of all of 2017 that I read. The introduction is a bit strange and it was off-putting to me, but I'm glad I pushed through and got to the meat of the story. It was definitely worth the time invested. It's kind of a mystery story, with some dark undertones. But the entire Journey from beginning to end is really interesting, and really well written. It really drew me into George's story, and his entire journey through life was never boring to read. All of the characters are done really well in the world that the book builds is interesting, at least to me, from start to finish excluding the strange introduction. It's not super long and it's a very fun ride. I would recommend this to anybody who likes to hear a good story, even if the plot itself is kind of mundane. In this case it's just telling the life story of a person, there's no ghosts in the basement there's no vampires (well, not really, it's a bit more complex than that but you'll understand what I mean if you give "Some of Your Blood" a chance) waiting to jump out. And the doctor perspective is very interesting to me, I've always found psychology really interesting, and this book doesn't really good job of bringing that dynamic in to explain some of the happenings that George goes through.

Anyway long story short, this was a very entertaining book that really, really, surprised me in a really great way and I would recommend wholeheartedly if you're on the fence about buying or giving this book a shot.
Nothing personal
First off, be warned that this is not science fiction, in any typical sense. This is a suspense and horror book. Sturgeon uses some very clever literary devices to tell the story, and allows it to develop at a pleasingly steady pace. The writer also manages to take subjects I would ordinary find too boring to learn anything about, and makes them interesting. This is, sadly enough a story that probably has occurred more than once in real life. There is a lot of unsavory action - not pornographic but disgusting, without question. The horror is balanced by some truly humorous segments. There is also the historic aspect of the book, being from the most underrated science fiction writer of the 20th century. It is a quality literary product, well written and painstakingly researched.
Global Progression
Strange. I found this story compelling enough to keep reading until it was over. It hinted at more than meets the eye and kept me guessing in spots. It was a solid 5 Star going into the stretch. But for me, the ending was (while unique), a slight let down. So a solid 4 star, and I’m done.

The book is written in fragments, semi-epistolary. I struggled through the first third because it was a narrative written by a semi-literate man. (the grammar was atrocious)

I'm glad I did. Since I've started writing, I've scared myself with what my mind was able to conceive, but only on rare occasions. Horror fiction doesn't scare me as it did when I was a child--it doesn't make me look around and put the book down and hope everything is going to be okay.

I felt that way again in a couple of places while reading Some of Your Blood. Without setting off too many spoilers, let me just say the end of the book struck me like no other since I Am Legend (the novella of course--not that joke of a movie); it was just that good.

Some of Your Blood isn't for the casual horror fan. I understand why it isn't more widely read. The Freudian psychology used throughout is a bit dated. I'm not even sure some would consider it horror in the popular sense of the term. But if you like to think--if you like a book that makes you go back and reread some passages because of their sheer power, go for it. Be patient. This one avoids cheep scares for deeper, longer lasting discomfort. I promise that you'll think about it after you're done reading.
