GRANNY, GET YOUR GUN!

By robertarmstrong6 All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Blurb

While white-water rafting with his parents, teen TV star Shane Baker wipes out ... waking up in the house of a strange grey-haired lady who keeps telling him he's "home." At first, her kindly attentiveness ("call me Granny") and constant chatter about how much she loves his show are just distractions as he tries to find out what's happened to his family. Then she learns Shane's show has been cancelled - because he refused to sign on for another season - and tenderness turns to torture. Obsessed by the need to bring back his TV character (a kind of son substitute, he assumes), she types scripts, sews costumes, builds a makeshift set in her living room - she wants the show back at any price, and what Granny wants ... Granny gets. As Shane's world goes from Howdy Doody to Halloween, he is powerless to resist, even as she ... tries to drown him in his bath ... locks him in with the remains of a ghastly family secret ... and invites him to play a refreshing round of Russian Roulette----as fan becomes fanatic, and Shane finds himself preparing for what Granny gleefully promises will be his "final scene."

Flipped

THE RAFT FLIPPED over and Shane’s world turned white.

He awoke in darkness, blinking at shadows. ‘Where ... am I?’

‘Here of course, darlin’,’ the voice said. ‘You’re home.’

Capsi.rum : Story is unbelievable but i m bit off about end because there should be reunion of hamilton with all of his friends that's it

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

iann4701: I'm no expert but I know when I have read a good book and this was one. From the beginning it had me wondering where it was going next and what the outcome would be. If you fancy a read with a slightly different perspective from the norm then I would certainly give this book a read. I will look o...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Steven Tesoro: The Symphony Of Life, as I read this I myself are homeless, not much of an income an occasionally, it crosses mostly everyones mind about doing the dirty. But it is worth the time to read this story and as I'm reading it thinking about getting my life back to where it should be, it's hard in thi...

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios.
